Newlywed Moments is a lifestyle blog about everything from romance to recipes to real life.
This is a touch confusing because I was told google reader and google friend connect we're two different things..?? Thoughts?
I read about this last year...What I gathered was that if you were part of Blogger then the new changes didn't pertain to you. I could be wrong but nothing has happened to my blog since I heard about it last year. Would you mind sharing the link where you read this new info? I would like to make sure I am safe! Thanks Emily!!
Hey ladies! Great questions.I heard too that they had talked last year about getting rid of GFC…which never happened…but this time, I think them shutting down Google Reader in July is for real.The link to the official Google announcement was in the blog post, but here it is again:http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2013/03/a-second-spring-of-cleaning.htmlFrom what I understand, Google Reader and Google Friend Connect ARE different…and they are only getting rid of Google Reader. Technically. The problem is that although the widget will still be there to follow someone with Google Friend Connect, when you do that, it currently connects to Google Reader…which will be gone. So, you can “follow” but not read. And obviously, readers are more important than followers!Hopefully that makes sense! :)
That stinks! I will be following your blog via e-mail now then! :)
Also if you read a blog with through IGoogle you will no longer be able to in November. They are getting rid of that too.
Just a little clarification with GFC: If you connect via GFC you can still read that blog on your blogger homepage without using Reader. On http://www.blogger.com/home there is a "Reading List" that has all updates for all of your connected blogs.
I just made the switch myself!!!
Emily - Thank you so much for the update and for explaining the difference between following and being able to see your feed. It completely makes sense now! :) www.prettylittleelm.blogspot.com
Done! Thanks for sharing!
I had heard this a long time ago... Then it was only for people using non-google blogs. Curious if this is the case again?
