Bye to Google Reader +MORE??

Never used it much anyway... I like to use the "Blogger Reading List".

But there seems to be some question (out there) about what will happen to "Google Friend Connect" when "Google Reader" goes away this coming July 1st. -And that sometimes grumpy but fabulous little widget that allows me to follow blogs, I would DEFINITELY miss! So... just to be safe I signed up with Bloglovin'. It is super easy to copy blog addresses from "Google Friend Connect".

HEY, A LITTLE REDUNDANCY CAN NEVER HURT!

For a more humorous explanation of all this please stop by Diane Cayton Hakey's place.


 
So, I am passing this along... just in case ;)
 
 
 
 
THIS IS NOT A PAID COMMERCIAL

  1. Haha! I just about cried myself to sleep the day I learned Google Reader was going away....buuuuuuuuut....then things in life seem to go...I found a service I love even more!! It's called Bloglines. I've been using it for about a month or so and love, love, love it!

  6. I use both GFC and Bloglovin. Very curious as to how the switch will effect GFC? I prefer it
