How Do You Subscribe To Favorite Blogs?

There are many ways to read your favorite blogs.  I wish there was one place I could find
all the blogs I enjoy reading.  Instead I find myself constantly checking Bloglovin, GFC,
Google+, and email.  This is all very time consuming.

Add in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, ect.... and it all becomes overwhelming!
Another blogger recently wrote   "You must tweet and post on FB at least once per
day to have a successful blog".  What?

My favorite site is Bloglovin where I can read many post at one time.  Some blogs only have
the option of subscribing by email.  Honestly, this is my least favorite way to follow. 
 I receive hundreds of emails weekly and the last thing I want is more.  There are only
a handful of blogs I follow by email, though I do regularly visit others without subscribing. 

I try to give my readers options for following No Minimalist Here and  I would love to hear
about your preferences.   Thanks to each and everyone of you that take the time to visit.

What's your favorite way to follow blogs?

Do you feel being active with Facebook and other social media sites is necessary
to have a successful blog?  

How much time do you spend weekly reading blogs?

On another note....

Easter Brunch With Crescent Roll "Carrots"

I hope you are having a happy Easter.

Our son, daughter-in-law and grandkids came over for Easter brunch.  I made these
cute bird nest I found over at Our Adventures In Home Improvement.

We also had crescent roll "carrots" filled with homemade chicken salad and fresh fruit.  Thanks to Living My life On Purpose for sharing how to make the "carrots".

The banana bread was delicious!  The secret to making it moist is substituting applesauce for the eggs and oil.  The ham and cheese quiche was the last thing to make it to the table and I completely forgot to take a picture.

We all enjoyed a casual brunch and spending time together as a family.

I hope your day was special!
