Happy Sunday…thought I would post a little info about the change from Google Reader to Bloglovin along with some neat info for both bloggers and followers…
As we have been told, tomorrow Google Reader will go away. You can STILL add your email address on the right sidebar to my blog or any blog to follow via email but now you can follow ALL your blogs in ONE place on BLOGLOVIN. I have linked many of my blogs to this site for awhile now and I must say I like it. I get one email with a long list of the wonderful blogs I am following with a thumbnail pic of the latest post related to that blog. With one click, I can visit the blog or open the image and enjoy each post!
For those of you who would like to continue to FOLLOW ME, you can click on the “FOLLOW ME WITH BLOGLOVIN” button on the right under “FOLLOWERS” and continue to receive my posts the same way as you did through Google Reader, or you can add your email address. I thank you for continuing to follow me in blogland with your kind comments and support!
Now, for my blogging buddies, if you want a quick and short resource for how to add or “claim” your blog and add the widgets to your sidebar, I found this resource quick and easy: http://missdriftedsnowwhite.com/savvy-blogging/blogging-tips-bloglovin-as-google-friend-connect-replacement-alternative.html
And here is another great resource with pictures and a step-by-step guide:
Since I already had a Bloglovin account, all I had to do was “claim” the blog and add a widget with the code I got after I claimed my blog. Took about a minute to do! You can also link to your facebook page when done – one click- and whenever you publish a post, it will automatically post to facebook. How cool is that?
Last, and VERY COOL, for you “tech saavy” folks, Bloglovin has an app for iOS (and may have an android app as I write this) and you can view your favorite blogs on the web and mobile apps- such as your iphone, android phone and ipad… Also, it is all FREE of charge!
I am sure the transition will be an easy one as I have noticed so many have switched to Bloglovin already, but I just wanted to send a quick post to all to make sure you continue to get all your favorite blogs after the change tomorrow.
Have a great day!
