Lately if you want to make sure you see posts from someone/a blog, you have to go search them out in FB, or belong to their subscription list.

Liking a particular person/blog/organization (on Facebook) does NOT guarantee you will see their posts/articles.  That is what the hoopla is all about... basically. 

If you meant "belong" as in "like" on Facebook.  If I misinterpreted what you were saying... never mind.   Silly7

That's what I'm saying. I used to see a lot of the ones I "Liked." Now, not so much. No matter how many times I like one of their posts during a day or week, it's not guaranteeing that I see their new posts in my timeline.

So my new thing has been to go to their FB pages from their blogs on the days I read blogs. I usually end up being a couple of days late, but I get to see it that way anyway.

BlogLovin works well too if I go to my bloglovin page so that all I have to do is scroll down in one place. I wish all of them belonged to that.

Gotcha.  We were thinking/saying the same thing.  :)
