(Damn you Google) Bloglovin'

So, it seems that Google are going out of their way to make me hate them lately, the latest reason for this being that they are getting rid of Google Reader.  I keep all the blogs I follow organised in their so this is a bit of a pain in the butt for me to say the least. 
There is also talk that Google Friend Connect will be going as well, which is probably right since I can no longer find the widget to add to my blog and the one I had has disappeared, possibly taking all my followers with it.  So, if you're looking for a new way to follow Pie's Eyes then why not try Bloglovin, just click on the picture below...
Follow on Bloglovin
I'm still not fully up to speed with Bloglovin but it seems to be a fairly decent alternative to GFC for when the time comes and it disappears.
If anyone has any idea how to get the GFC followers widget back onto my blog until they do chuck it please shout, I don't seem to have any way to track my followers now which is rather annoying and there's no way to add the blog to your GFC account, should you wish to.


  1. Yep, it's all very annoying isn't it.
    But don't forget that not all your followers will have/will be via GFC - me for starters.
    I don't follow via GFC I get your feed in Google Reader - well FeedDemon really but it uses Google Reader to sync feeds.

  2. Good point, let's just hope it doesn't cause all of us to lose followers during the swap over.
