new {tech} habit

With the news of Google Friend Connect (GFC) going away for non-Blogger sites on March 1, 2012, I started thinking about what that means for my blog (even though it's hosted on Blogger) along with all the non-Blogger blogs I follow.  This is important to me because being part of the blogging community means a lot to me and I connecting with other bloggers, as well hear from readers like YOU!

I started using Bloglovin' as a way to follow blogs (not all the blogs I follow using GFC, just about 20...I'm thinking it will be a somewhat gradual switch).  One month into it, I have to say I really like it and here's WHY 
  • The way I view the blog post  is the same as what's on the blog rather than in Google reader mode where you miss out on font, color and more
  • When I want to comment on the blog it's also easier because I'm already viewing the post on the blog itself and I can simply click to expand the comment box (rather than opening a new tab to go to blog and comment)
  • There is mobile app that allows me to view the blogs I follow from my phone while waiting in the dentist office (or elsewhere)
Want to try it out?  You can follow this blog in Bloglovin' by clicking below!

  1. I didn't realize GFC was going away for non- Blogger blogs. thatdoesn't affect my blog but there are plenty of blogs I follow that way that aren't on blogger. seems like that'll be a mess! bloglivin' sounds way better, thanks for the info. I think I'll gradually transition to that as well. I'll probably be more apt to comment that way.
