Goodbye GFC? :(

I actually cannot believe it. Well, I can but.. I just can't!
Basically, Google Reader, which a large % of us use to read other blogs, is going as of 1st July this year.. Blogs you follow via GFC automatically appear on your readers list which is on your dashboard when you sign into Blogger. So after 1st July, when you sign into Blogger, none of the blogs you follow will show up.
I'm not sure what this means for the GFC gadget as it doesn't make a lot of sense to follow blogs with GFC if you can't read them from the same place you follow them.. If that makes sense!? Whether GFC is staying or not, Google Reader isn't and you will need a new place to read your blogs.

I first heard this crappy news this morning when Alice over on Bright Town Girl posted about it (click here to see her post!) I know I'm not the only person to be completely gutted/annoyed by this but the way I see it, if we all post about it to make all our readers aware then the less it's going to effect us all, right?
I shall be using Bloglovin' from now on to follow/read blogs so GFC and Google Reader can lick my big toe! Anyone that doesn't have Bloglovin' (or any of the other sites you can use to follow blogs) I urrrge you to get your butt on there and set it up ;)
Please click the button below to follow my blog with Bloglovin' if you haven't already :)

Follow on Bloglovin

If you do decide to use Bloglovin', you can import all of the blogs you follow by following the instructions at the top of your homepage on their website. Makes it much quicker than visiting every single blog you follow and trying to find links on their profiles!

    1. Google reader is the reading list of blogs on your dashboard.. So if that's going then you'd need a new platform to read blogs on anyway. x
