Shop Update and Missing Followers

I've updated my Etsy shop
with some vintage and upcycled items



***
Google made changes with how followers can follow you
and
if you are following blogs with any non-Google account,
well....they simply removed you from the blogs you follow!

"...starting the week of January 11, we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.

Ya think?
Today most people are joining Instagram anyway!

  2. Hello,
    I noticed that every time I get a chance to look at blogs, my followers were less and less. I thought it was because I haven't had the time to blog and lots of people were dropping me. Now I know. Thank you, Love your blog by the way:)

  6. My dear Rhonda, many of us found out a few weeks/months ago the HARD WAY! In one day, I lost 57 followers but I didn't know yet the news from Blogger. I was crushed and quit blogging thinking people were sick of me! Being on Instagram is fun. See you there?

    1. YOU KNOW I don't EVER post negative thoughts but this was a bit ridiculous to me. Not to mention the confusion it caused with bloggers. Sigh

  8. It seems to me that Google bit their own nose off to spite its face! What!?! Are internet moguls running a race to see who is the most stupid?
