Back in November Google announced that it would be shutting down Google Friend connect as of March 1, 2012. Well, apparently I live under a rock since I just found out about it last week.
I have had the Google Friend Connect button on the sidebar of my blog for a few years now. From the beginning I preferred to refer to DTA (Décor To Adore) readers as “Adorable People” versus the term “Followers” which was later changed to “Members”.
Google Friend Connect has indeed been my friend. It has allowed me to “follow” all of my favorite blogs. But apparently between Facebook, Networked Blogs, Feedburner and Twitter it is now a bit of a dinosaur.
So, I’ve decided to get on board and give the public what it wants.
The closet comparison to Friend Connect is Networked Blogs available through Facebook. I have had a DTA Facebook page for awhile and many of you choose to read the blog there.
The Networked Blog button has now been added to the top of my sidebar so that you may join. (If you are reading this via a reader you will have to click on the blog post title to be directed to the actual DTA page.)
For those of you who prefer to read blog updates via Twitter there is now a DTA homepage where blog posts are available and yes, I even provide an occasional “tweet”.
I have also received several requests from my overseas readers to add Feedburner as a subscription option. Having lived overseas I am well familiar that the internet connection is not as reliable and it’s sometimes easier to read a blog via email.
The feedburner subscribe button can also be found on the sidebar of the DTA blog.
Finally for those of you who love Pinterest you may want to check out the Décor To Adore boards. My “Hey Girl” collection is currently being repinned at lightening speed. It would appear that we all enjoy a good laugh.
Now, I am off to go glitter something because Mr. DTA actually says things like this:
Let’s be PIN PALS,
