Are you missing out on some of your favourite blogs? #goodbyeGFC

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 8 - 2012

If you do one thing today please check your blog subscriptions, update if necessary, and if you’re using the Blogger.com dashboard to read your favourite blogs, consider changing to something a little less flaky (I personally use Bloglines to follow my favourites).

At the last count, there were nearly 40 bloggers in ‘google exile’ following the removal of the GFC service for non-blogger blogs.

You can find a list of these bloggers at https://twitter.com/#!/lipglossiping/goodbye-gfc/members

Have a look, you may even find your new favourite blog in the list.

.

I just want to say a massive thank you to @tsunimee for helping me spread the word about this and for being the most passionate (if a little bit too passionate at times ;)) blogger I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.  She fights for whatever she believes is right and she does it with gusto, as the French would say… formidable.

Also, a huge thank you to all the blogs out there who have nothing to personally gain from posting the above image but have done so regardless to help raise awareness.  You’re beyond brilliant and I’ll happily RT the arse out of any posts you wanna send my way on Twitter (@lipglossiping)

Normal posting (and quite possibly a lot more of it!) to resume tomorrow, I gotta get my readers back somehow right?!

  3. Hey Charlotte, thanks to you and Liloo for setting this list up, it’s going to be invaluable. I blogged about this too cos it makes me so mad to think that people have put so much work in and seen their readers take a hit. I’m sure it’ll be the Blogger lot next too, to make way for the unfathomable google plus. Post here: http://goo.gl/21cXR
    I’m sure your readers will be right back hun, they’ll miss you too much. :-) x

    I shall do as you have advised now.
    Although I just have you all saved in the ‘Blug’ category on my favourites so it doesn’t really affect me :)

    My blog has been affected and I am on a blog spot blog. Go figure! No word yet on if/ when I will get it back. Very demoralising as have not been blogging long and was just starting to see my followers increase. Now they are gone. Hey oh. Just have to start again :(
