Friends, Followers, and Google Friend Connect

Google is making some changes to blogger again.  This time they're discontinuing Google Friend Connect for those who do not have Google accounts.  I didn't think this would effect me too much but I've noticed that I have fewer friends now than a few weeks ago.  So if you'd like to be my friend and follower through Google Friend Connect, you'll need to create a Google account, come to my blog, and click to become a friend.  If you don't, I know I will miss you!

Many people follow blogs with a reader these days.  Some of the popular ones are bloglovin', feedly, and The Old Reader.  And I know others receive emails every time a new post is published.

I usually read blog posts with feedly and sometimes with bloglovin' but I jump over to blogs to leave comments.  I love Google Friend Connect and seeing the friendly faces and fun little images of followers in my sidebar and your sidebars when I visit your blogs.  I hope you'll choose to continue to follow joy for grace or, if you're new, choose to begin following it with your Google account.

If you have a blogger blog and want to learn more you can read the post about Google Friend Connect changes here.

As always, thanks for visiting!



  1. I have literally just been investigating this myself. I thought I had become a social pariah!

  2. I have been reading about this today and have already included this link in my post for tomorrow! (Great minds think alike.) This is really irritating me as I have lost almost 100 followers so far.

  3. Just made sure I don't loose touch with you Nancy by clicking the bloglovin button ☺


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
