I have seen this rumor floating around everywhere for quite a while. Google is retiring google friend connect! O.o
I hadn't ever really believed the rumor. Google has been threatening to shut down GFC forever, but they never have. But then I read somewhere that they are officially retiring it on July 1st... which means all us bloggers need to transfer all of our stuff to bloglovin' before we loose all of our followers and the lovely blogs we follow.
I just did all that yesterday, and now I've noticed many other blogs announcing that they too can be followed via bloglovin'! Which is great that you all are hearing about this too.
And, so you can now follow me on bloglovin', as you can see from the button on my dashboard. (sorry, my dashboard is a bit cluttered, I plan to organize it soon)
I would really love it if all of you would follow me on bloglovin', but I understand that that's a near impossible request.
In some ways, I believe that starting over with followers will be a good thing. All blogs will be equal again. No judging other blogs because they don't have hundreds of followers. Though it is sad for the bloggers who have worked so hard to gain 1000 followers.
Oh well, see you all on bloglovin' :)
