Why are they doing this?
Google is encouraging bloggers to create new Google + pages in lieu of their old Google Friend Connect account. This means bloggers will have to pour time and energy promoting a new tool & service to their followers, or find them a different way to follow.
What does this mean to you?
Anyone who follows me using Google Friend Connect that does not have a "Blogger" Blog, will no longer be able to follow this blog! Google will just drop you! :(
This happens March 1, 2012!!
What can you do?
1) I'm checking into Linky Followers, Simply Linked and Mr Linky's Magical Widgets. Once I find one that will work, you'll be able to follow me through one of these widgets.
2) You can follow me on NetworkedBlogs on Facebook.
3) You can Subscribe to this Blog in the sidebar, which means you will get my new posts by email.
4) If you have a Blog, you can also grab my button and place it on the sidebar of your blog. It's linked up to this blog.
I do not currently have a Twitter Account or Pinterest account because I don't want to spend my life on the computer...but maybe I'll consider them now. I'll keep you posted.
Are you a Blogger?
Like you, I will have to go through the accounts I'm following and follow all the non-Blogger accounts in a different way.
Someone out there sure wants to make a lot of unnecessary work for us!
My apologies to all of you! Please find a different way to follow (if you are a non-Blogger), if you'd like to keep getting my freebies!
A link to this post will be kept on all my posts until February 28th, 2012.
