BLOGLOVIN' ????

Alrighty then ~ I've done it!  The proverbial "they" have made me fear losing my Google Reader supported blog lists and heaven knows what else ~ so, like many of my blog friends, I've bitten the bullet and signed on with Bloglovin' !!  Now, we shall see what we shall see!!  Hang on for the ride, kids!! It's actually scary that I could make this switch ~  I have such a fear of the unknown!! And their icons are all weird ~ this rather large lady face is the least weird of them all!!

Can anyone enlighten me about Bloglovin?? I live in a whirlwind and don't remember getting a message  from Google that, as of July 1, they won't be supporting our blogs.  I just read on another blog that they were switching and decided I better look into it!  What happens if I don't sign up with Bloglovin ~ will anybody be able to find my blog? Will I lose my blog list of favorites?

Help!!!

I'm wondering the same thing, Alice! It's too much work to change everything over...I think I might just call it a day with blogging! So nice to see you at Kingwood yesterday.....your wool is just beautiful!

Hi Alice, I'm not a techy person but I connected to Bloglovin by clicking on Millie's Mat Bloglovin Button and then I added the Bloglovin Button on my own blog by googling it and it was easy.

The first time I tried to register with Bloglovin, I followed the steps and it would tell me that there was already an email account (mine) that was registered under that name. I didn't realized that by clicking on Millie's Mat's Bloglovin button, it had already automatically registered me on Bloglovin.

So in reality, I couldn't register twice on the same email account.

The first time I tried to add the Bloglovin button it just didn't happened. It just froze. The next day I tried again and it went right on my blog.

I googled Bloglovin button.

Hope this is clearer than mud. I'm sure a lot of your followers are more able to help you. It's the best I can do. I don't want to loose you. You can click my Bloglovin button.
Hugs,
JB

What ever happens, I just hope that I don't lose being able to get your blog updates in my email. The blog updates are my addiction and I would miss you, Alice.
