Firstly, I'm curious, what widgets are people using to display a number of people who follow their blog?

Secondly, what blog networks are you on? I was on Blogloving, but I couldn't find any blogs that suited my interests. Also, I've just started out with Blog Matter. Would there be any blog networks out there that suit nerdy people like me?

I also use bloglovin. I don't use too many networks to find new blogs and usually just look at the blogs of people who are commenting on blogs I like. That was I hopefully start reading new blogs that interest me.

I don't think I've ever found a blog to read from suggested blogs by bloglovin, they all seem to be very popular blogs and usually fashion or home niched ones and I don't find myself interested.

I use bloglovin. I use it to read blogs though, not to find new ones. I also go to blogs I like and browse through the comments, like Kalliste. Occasionally I'll find new blogs via Instagram, as well.

How do you find blogs via Instagram? I thought you could only see pictures.

You're right, but a lot of people I follow on Instagram have blogs. I normally go to the Explore tab, like some pictures, and check out profiles. If there's a blog link, I check it out! ^u^

The book review widget I'm using has an option to display how many people follow my blog, so if I ever get interested in showing that, I'd probably use what I have already.

I used Bloglovin before too... but IDK I never really got on with it. Now I just check out people who comment on the blogs I read.

I saw HerCampus except my school doesn't have a chapter... And starting one or being highly involved in one seemed too much work. :$

BlogMatter was a really good concept! I'm bummed out the scripting isn't working out at the moment.
