How To Track Blogs?

Updated on November 10, 2011

With blogs having gained so much popularity in cyberspace, it is quite possible for an average internet user to visit at least a couple of blogs daily. However, the fact remains that people do not always update their blog on a regular basis. So if your internet connection is down and you manage to open a blog after a good half an hour only to discover that it hasn't been updated since the last time you were here, things can seem pretty irritating.

So how do you make things easier? What is needed here is a service that will inform you immediately whenever one of the blogs on your list of favorites was updated so you don't waste time opening each one daily only to discover that it hasn't been updated. Many websites have taken an initiative like this but Blogarithm takes the cake.

The greatest thing about Blogarithm is its simplicity. You visit the home page and without any self-praising messages, you will find a simple form which will ask you to enter your email address and URL of the blog you want to subscribe to. This is basically all that you need to create an account with the website. As you discover more and more interesting blogs that you want to keep updated on, you can simply log in here and add URLs to your blog roll.

So how does Blogarithm work? It's simple: by sending a daily email into your inbox which has the list of all the blogs and URLs which have been updated in the past 24 hours. All you then need to do is click on those blog links from your email, only to access them in another window. The email also has a few lines from the new post on the blogs concerned, so you get a fair idea of the kinds of updates made by the blogger.

On the website itself, you can manage your account in many different ways. Apart from adding blog URLs that you want to subscribe to, you can delete the links to blogs which are no longer functioning. If you won't be able to check your email for a long time and don't want your inbox to be flooded, you can suspend email from this website by entering the date till you want the email to be suspended, after which it will be automatically restored.

There are other options as well, which you can avail. You can choose whether to receive the daily email in text or HTML format. You can change the email address at which you receive emails. And if your list of blogs is too long, you can create categories and file your blog links under each, for instance, personal blogs, political blogs or metroblogs. Plus, if you have a long list of blog links to subscribe to, you can simply use the import option and add them all in one go. There is an extensive help section as well if you get stuck anywhere.

Moreover, if you have your own blog, you can use some of the stickers and banners that are here to promote this website. So basically, this is a website with many utilities. It helps you sort out your blog links and while doing that, it saves time while you are online and keeps your blog roll organised.

Visit blogarithm to get a daily dose of your favourite blogs.
