There is quite the dilemma going on about how to follow our favorite blogs and it is getting more confusing all the time. Google certainly seems to have thrown us all for a loop with the announcement that they would be discontinuing Google Friend Connect for bloggers who are not on Blogger. We have all come to love those smiling faces and avatars when we log into our blogs ~ it is like a room full of friends waiting for us!
My blog is on Blogger, so apparently, I am safe. However, many of you who follow my posts are not. What to do, what to do. Like many of you, my sidebar is filled with various links to make it convenient to keep track of my writings...probably more than a lot of you would like to see. I don't want anyone to go away without being able to find their way back, so I have tried to keep up with most ways of following.
The newest of these is Linky Followers 2012 Beta. The owner of Linky Tools was gracious enough to create this just for those bloggers who will no longer have GFC. It is lacking in some of the features that we may desire, but it will do the trick for some. So, I have it on my sidebar as well. If you don't mind signing up (it's FREE) and a few clicks, it is really not difficult, and I would love to see your smiling faces there as well. Shucks, I love to to see them here and there and everywhere! (giggle)
Thank you and mucho hugs! (I live in the Southwest, you know!)
