Moving On

"Well I could be angry but you're not worth the fight, and besides I'm moving on. I've counted to ten and I'm feeling alright, and besides I'm moving on."
Guess the song! 

You'll all be sick of hearing about this but I feel like it's kinda necessary if my blog's going keep living. Next month Google Reader is getting ditched and because it and GFC (Google Friend Connect) go hand-in-hand there's a very high chance that GFC will also be leaving us. This means that the 257 followers I have gained in the past 6 years won't mean anything anymore and you'll all stop receiving my posts through your reading list on the Blogger dashboard. It's not hard to work out that this bad news - baaad news - and I'm feeling pretty rubbish about it. Most blogs I read have been running for a year or two and have a couple of hundred followers, and I'm sure that they're all feeling down about this news too, but it's taken me a ridiculous amount of time to get my blog to where it is and now it's pretty much going down the drain. I feel like 6 years of my life has kind of gone to waste, as I'm sure this is going to decrease my reader-count drastically.  

The only real option for bloggers now is to move over to BlogLovin' - a great site that makes it really easy to follow all of your favourite blogs - the only struggle now is getting everyone to sign up. Right now only 13% of my GFC followers are following on BlogLovin'. :( I don't really know how best to say this except by saying please please please sign up to BlogLovin' and follow the blogs you love if you want to keep getting notified when they post! It's a really great site and it's super easy to use. I managed to move all of the blogs I follow through GFC onto my BlogLovin' account just in a few minutes, so I'm sure you can do the same (if I can do it, anyone can do it :P). 

There is a chance that GFC won't be ditched but I think it's best to do this anyway, just as a precaution. :) Click HERE to follow this blog on BlogLovin'! 

Apologies for this incredibly moany post. Normal, happy posting will resume shortly. ^_^
Lots of love, Cat

    1. I think most bloggers are going to be annoyed and upset about it, which makes me wonder why they're doing it! :( Thanks for following on BlogLovin' ^_^ xx
