Google Friends Connect Widget

Google has made changes (thanks for posting this Deb) which in essence means, if you do not have a Google account, you cannot follow my blog using the Google Friends Connect Widget.

This is completely out of my control but I am sorry if you are forced to create a Google account to continue following me. There are two positives to this though. IF you choose not open a Google account, you don’t have to. You can scroll down the left column of my blog and subscribe to my updates that way, and you can bookmark my blog if you just want to be able to come back and see something from the past.

The other positive  is that with a Google account, at least you will have a back up email account. That’s not a bad thing, but it’s entirely up to you. I’ve had email from a couple of people lately whose accounts have clearly been hacked. If this should happen to you, all you need  to do is change your password. I had it happen last year and my ISP told me to do that and the junk email supposedly coming from me and too me, went away.

Sorry that Google has changed the option of needing a Google account, but bloggers have no say in it, so we just hope you will continue to follow us. On my blog you have the alternate option of subscribing to my blog, I hope that’s an option for you..;o)

Have a great rest of the week, Romona

  1. It was Alison at Words and Pictures who told me about it Romona, seems a very silly change for Google to make but there you have it! I've seen a drastic decrease in my followers this week so apparently the 'culling' is in progress :O(
