Hello sewers and sewer appreciators (the needle and fabric type, not ninja turtles living underground in actual sewerage type),
Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to be punched in the face by the internet? Well I recently found that out. Turns out daddy google doesn't want to play with google reader any more and is giving it the virtual boot.
What does that mean? Well it means us bloggers who write and read blogs using blogger/blogspot, can no longer follow other blogs using this bad boy:
Google Friend Connect.
What? WHAT?!!? Yep, when we log into our blogs we can't see posts by our favourite bloggers, and our readers can no longer see our blog posts. Still don't know what the H it is? Click here for a bit more info. Effectively you lose a whole bunch of readers to your blog.
Ugh. Well that sucks.
After kicking and flailing my arms and legs around on the kitchen floor to no avail (I DO love a tempter tanty), I decided to look at other options. On a side note, I should REALLY wash my kitchen floor ...
If you currently read my blog with Google Friend Connect, you can stay up to date with my posts by subscribing via email:
Or by using Feedly. I haven't played around with this site yet, but it looks like you can transfer the blogs that you follow currently with google reader over to this new platform.
I have starting shifting all of the blogs that I follow over to bloglovin' so I can keep track of new posts. The interface is similar to google reader and I do love how easy it is to use. But I'm still grumpy about it. Don't know what Bloglovin' is? Click here for the run down.
To cheer us all up I decided to do a giveaway:
4 x $50USD e-vouchers for Colette Patterns online store
Follow my blog through Bloglovin' or via email (or heck, anything other than google reader) and comment on this post.
If you already follow my blog through one of these means, then you are welcome to enter as well!
Four lucky peeps will be randomly selected and each will win one $50 e-voucher.
Entries are open to everyone from anywhere in the world.
Entries close on Friday, April 26th, 2013
The winners will be announced in a blog post on Sunday, April 28th, 2013
So is anyone else put out by the latest news from google? Discovered any great ways to keep up to date with your favourite blogs? Know how to give kitchen floors a good clean?
Let me know!
P.s. - Don't forget to email me your pictures for the Mad Men Challenge An extension has been given until Monday, the 22nd of April so we can work on our projects over the weekend.
I can't wait to share all amazing outfits you guys have made. Such a talented community!
