A New Way to Follow

I was just visiting Heather and Vanessa over at The Picket Fence and they have introduced a new way to follow your blogs since I am told that Google Friend Connect will be no more as of March 1st.

It is called Linky Followers.
I have it set up on my sidebar.

I will let them explain it all because they do it so well, so click HERE to find out how you can add this and join up for FREE!!!

It's So Very Cheri has some more great  info about it as well.

You can also still follow along through email of RSS feed if that is preferred.

**Update: GFC will be discontinued for non-Blogger blogs, like Wordpress. (Thank you Tricia)
There is so much going on right now but if you read Heather and Vanessa's post and comments there are some helpful tips in them as well.
Take a look around and see what would work best for you but at least there is another option if GFC does leave Blogger as well some day.
I hope I don't confuse anyone, just take your time and look around and see what you think.

My understanding is that Google Friend Connect will still be around, but it will only be for Blogger blogs...they're discontinuing it for other blogs like those on Wordpress.

Hi Michelle,

Thank you for helping to spread the word. It is correct that for now GFC will remain on Blogger blogs, but the rumor around internet land is that it will go away all together at some point with a push towards Google+. GFC isn't doing for Google what it originally intended which was to be an alternative to Facebook, now they have Google+ for that so it's becoming obsolete to Google. We want to make sure there is an alternative for EVERYONE no matter what the platform, we hope this will serve that purpose! Thanks again for posting about it!

Simone @ Doberman's by the Sea said...

Hey of course I'm going to follow you on Linky Followers too - it's great isn't it? I like the way you could put blogs in categories (you are in my favourite category)!
