Hello, everybody! I guess you all heard by now that Google Reader will no longer be available starting on the 1st of July 2013. This means that Google Friend Connect will be gone, too. It makes me very sad, because I rely on Google reader for my daily feeds. I've got all my reads organized in there, by category and it’s very handy and easy to use. So I just (finally) joined Bloglovin and guess what? With just one click I teleported my entire reading list from Google Reader to Bloglovin (while keeping all my reading list intact)! Yesss!
Also, the blogroll in my sidebar keeps me posted about all my special friends whom I visit almost daily, so that’s a keeper!
But loosing Google Friend Connect will surely have an impact on the way people follow my blog. I guess I just took GFC for granted, thinking it will always be there, for as long as Google and Blogger exist. My Wordpress blogger friends have already experienced this at the beginning of 2012, when GFC was no longer available for Wordpress blogs. I guess I've neglected promoting other ways of connection, like Facebook, Pinterest, G+, Bloglovin etc. The only community I've offered so far is Hellocotton, which I find very stylish, contemporary and inspiring.
So here is my questions to you, lovely friends and readers, bloggers or not:
Which way would you like to connect with me?
I am very interested to know which is easier for you, which one you use on a regular basis: Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or anything else? Please leave me a comment below or email me at mihaelabalan8[at]gmail.com. I really, really appreciate your answers! It would give me great input (plus the feeling that someone out there has the same passion and interest as me in interior design for small spaces).
I've already included social media buttons on the sidebar, please feel free to follow me in whatever fashion suits you best (or all of them, for that matter). And please leave me an answer, I am forever grateful!
Thank you very, very much!
