If you like following The Blooming Hydrangea and you use Google Friend Connect you will no longer receive blog posts starting on March 1st. The GFC button has already been removed from my blog so no one else can sign up to follow with it.
I will be switching over to Word Press sometime in the next two weeks and GFC will no longer be available for non-Blogger blogs. If you are signed up to receive my posts through something else besides GFC, you will not need to take any action. When my blog switches to WP you will all come right along with me. If you do use GFC, you will need to take some action to make sure you still receive updates from my blog. There are many ways to still receive blog posts from The Blooming Hydrangea. You can follow TBH on facebook. On the right hand side you will see a button like this:
When you click on this button you can have TBH blog posts delivered to your reader such as Google, Yahoo, Net Vibes, etc. If you use Google Reader clicking on the Google button will set you up in Google Reader.
You can also sign up to receive TBH posts through email on the right hand side of my blog by entering your email address.
Another great way to follow along is through a new follower tool called Linky Followers. Linky Followers is a free widget that lets you follow along with your favorite blogs and acts as a reader for the blogs you follow as well. This works for any blog that is signed up under Linky Followers, regardless if it’s a Blogger blog or WP or typepad, etc.
So there you have it folks, GFC is going away and I won’t see your beautiful smiling faces on the right hand side of my blog anymore unless you sign up with Linky Followers. If you have any questions or problems, please email me!
I love hearing from you and hope you will continue to follow along. Stay tuned because there will be a new look here soon, thanks to Elizabeth at The Mustard Ceiling Design Services who has done some excellent blog work for the likes of Cottage & Vine, Emily A. Clark, Saved by Suzy and All Things Bright & Beautiful to name a few!
Thank you for reading this blog, commenting and emailing me! I love to hear from you and hope that you will come back soon! If you have a blog that has GFC and it will be going away, please let me know so I can follow you as well!
