Follow Scribbles on Bloglovin'

You probably already heard this, but Google Reader is going away July 1st. If you haven't already, now is the time to move your blog subscriptions to a new service, before you lose them!


Even if you don't use Google Reader to keep up with blogs, if you follow using Google Friend Connect, you'll also want to switch to a new way to follow blogs. Why? Because the sole purpose of GFC is to add blogs to Google Reader, which then syncs to your Blogger Dashboard. Without Google Reader, I'm guessing Blogger Dashboard will go away, and so too will Google Friend Connect. Most of the Google Friend Connect services have already been discontinued, such as the newsletter feature.

Don't panic yet. While I'll miss seeing your smiling faces in the Google Friend Connect widget, I think you'll be really happy moving to Bloglovin'. I started using Bloglovin' to follow fashion, lifestyle, and craft blogs mainly, maybe a year ago. Now I've imported all the blogs I follow and categorized them accordingly.


Why I love Bloglovin':


So without further ado, here's my Bloglovin' button:

Also, lately I've been thinking about social media. I'm currently on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and sort of Google+. I also occasionally post on my church's Facebook page and the youth group Facebook page, and don't even talk to me about the youth group blog. It's a lot! I'd rather be really present on one or two, than mediocre on all, but I love them all for different reasons. So, I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. If you had to pick one to keep following me on, which would you pick?

In other news, remember my marriage blog? Life happened, and my contributors had babies and moved, and we all got busy. It's been fun, but Newlywed's Bliss will officially be going away July 15th. I'm really grateful for the experience of working with and designing on self-hosted WordPress, and getting to write with several wonderful, wise, ladies. 

Will I be seeing you on Bloglovin'? Do you use something else to follow blogs? Share it with us in the comments!
