Google Friend Connect gone as of today

by brae  

Apparently, I missed his newsflash.  :[

Now that Google Friend Connect is no longer working on non-blogger sites, you'll need to sign up with the RSS feed (on the right sidebar) to follow my blog.  It's all new to me, but I think if you are on blogger and you're already a follower you should still see my feed in your google reader/blogger dashboard.

If you're a new visitor and want to follow my blog, I think you need to use the RSS feed.  I don't know much about it.  The Google Friend Connect widget was very easy to use.

I'm not happy about this at all since I was able to contact many of you through the Friend Connect widget here.  I'll still have most of the feeds for those blogs I follow in my blogger dashboard, but some non-blogger sites aren't showing up there.  I also wonder what will happen to the people who've been following and supporting my blog through Friend Connect.

I am not on facebook or twitter, so those are not options.  If you have any wisdom to share on the subject, please let me know.  As always, thank you for your kind comments, friendship and support.

I know a lot of people (me included) have started using the Linky Followers widget. It’s very similar to Google Friend Connect. Check it out here: www.linkyfollowers.com.

I have the same problem, my blog is on Wordpress platform, so I think all I can do is to add Bloglovin’ or Linky followers, and the link to Google Reader.
Keep voting for you for Best blog, good luck!:)

You’re still appearing in my dashboard and on the ‘blogs to follow’ section so I can keep track =0)

I just follow everyone on RSS anyways, it’s way easier to see all the updates to blogs because I can categorize them and skip over all the stuff I don’t feel like looking at XD

Brae, I can still see you on my Blogger list…. so I am relieved! I WILL NOTICE if you disappear! I follow your progress AVIDLY! I am always SO Impressed… even though I don’t comment often… probably because this format is different from what I am used to on blogger.

You still show up on my Blogshelf app. If people have an iPad, that might be an option.
