Stupid Google

Pin It Now!
It seems that Google has recently announced they will be ditching Google Friend Connect. Where have I been? More importantly, what in the world is Google thinking? Want to know my first thought? It was that I'm so sad I won't be able to see your pretty little thumbnails on the side of my blog. It's going to be a weird adjustment I think. At least we're all in this together, right? Maybe I'm the only one who's having a hard time with this. Tell me I'm not alone ladies!

So, I'm hopping on here to let you know that if you follow my blog {or any other blog} you should consider following from Bloglovin so I can still see you and connect with you there. I just signed up myself and I'm starting to add my favorite blogs one by one.

  This link will take you directly to my blog, or you can click on that handy little icon to the right that says "follow this blog with bloglovin"!
UPDATE: it seems that I've misunderstood/believed a rumor on twitter that wasn't entirely true. Google is getting rid of Google Reader. For those of you who follow along through Google Reader, you will have to switch over to following through Bloglovin as an alternative. This doesn't mean Google Friend Connect will be disappearing. ::big sigh of relief:: I will still be able to see all your smiling faces on the side of my blog!

Hope this clarifies things.


  1. I'm really upset about this. Why would they do this?!

  2. I never got into GFC. I was faithful to BL from the beginning. :)

  3. They ate getting rid of google reader not googke friend connect

  4. This is so confusing - not sure why they have to change it!

  5. oh gosh! I read your post and freaked out! Thanks for clarifying at the bottom...I think a lot of people use google reader but I don't soo I'm alright with keeping GFC and using bloglovin!

  6. just wanted to say I dont think its GFC its something to do with the rs feed and the reader
