How to follow any type of blog (WordPress, Typepad, Drupal, etc) in your Blogger dashboard

Blogger can be a bit of a snob, really. Instead of allowing everyone to follow everyone, you can only follow Blogger blogs and “Friend Connect” non-Blogger blogs (which is still essentially the same thing). So what happens if you come across a blog that doesn’t have a follow widget in the sidebar? Easy! Just follow me as I take you through the steps of adding any non-Blogger blog (Pretty Shiny Sparkly is self-hosted and run on WordPress, the best blogging platform on the planet) to your reading list in your Blogger dashboard.

I hope you enjoy this tutorial! Go try it out now with Pretty Shiny Sparkly and see how it works for you. All you have to know is the blog’s URL (which you can easily copy & paste from the browser address bar of the blog’s homepage). You do not need to know an RSS feed address, or anything of that sort. It will recognize the blog’s feed automatically. Voila!

Or you can just follow all your blogs with BlogLovin’ and be done with it! 🙂
