Yikes! But there are alternative ways to follow... (Image source)
So here are the ways to follow this blog.
- Bloglovin (I'm so happy to see there are nearly 700 of you guys over there although I haven't been promoting my BlogLovin! You guys like me! You do, don't you? Someone out there actually likes me!)
- Twitter (If you want to start a conversation, this is the best way. Because I check it more often than I check my email, hah!)
- Google Plus (I know, I started an account after I said I wouldn't...
- And my RSS feed still remains the same if you do want a direct link to that, too (it's old skool, but it lets you import the feed into any service).
And you can also migrate your Google Reader to Feedly.
So, please do follow me (these links are all already in the "Connect" sidebar, along with other cool follow methods like FB, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. which aren't blog-related, but which are just things I do for fun), and don't be a stranger come tomorrow! One of the things about being a relatively long-lived blogger (4 years come end of this year, woohoo!) is that the "hip" method to follow the blog changes so much. First it was bare RSS, then Google Reader, then now it's BlogLovin/Feedly. And of course you weren't cool unless you had a Facebook page, but since Facebook engagement has been down everyone's looking out for the next big thing, which depending on what you read, can be Twitter, nope, Tumblr, oops I meant Pinterest, no wait, really Instagram, because mobile is the future, except that Snapchat is cooler because it has auto-delete videos. It all just goes to show you how fickle the tech space is.
Anyway, I'll confess that I will dearly, dearly, miss Google Reader, because it's tied so closely to GFC, which has been my - and everyone else's - method of choice for following blogs to date. Damn you, Google.
