To My Followers--Google Friends is Ending, But You Can Follow with Linky!

You may have heard that Google is retiring Google Friend Connect; after March 1, 2012 many blogs will no longer support the Google Friend Connect community. You can still follow my blog though, through Linky, which is a new service that many bloggers are switching to in place of Google Friends.

To follow me via Linky Followers simply click "Follow Me" under the "Be a Follower" heading on the right side of my blog. If you've never used Linky Followers before it will prompt you to signup--don't worry, it's a free service.

Once you have access to Linky Followers you can browse other blogs by topic and even see when they were last updated, who owns it and begin following them all in one place!

It seems that as soon as we get used to something, it changes, and the best we can do is hold on for the ride :) I hope many of you will make the changeover and continue to follow my ramblings through Linky.

Well, now you have me wondering... I don't think I ever did the google friends thing. I just follow through my dashboard on my blog. I guess that is different. I haven't heard of the linky following. I'll have to take a look at that. Also, now I'm wondering if I need to try to some how save the blogs I'm following in one place because I might loose those links on March 1st.

I've registered with Linky now as I've had to make the change for one of the other blogs I follow. Will do yours now.

Thanks, my friends! I registered with Linky the other day when I realized I needed to do so to follow other bloggers. Sigh--when will changes slow down?
