If you have been "bumped" from my reader/follower list by Google I am not sure you will get this. :-( Boohoo.
Google+ Friend Connect will not be serving all of you in the future. Only people with google/gmail addresses will be able to follow on Google+. I know this sounds crazy! (I am not happy, but the corp announced this.) Bummer!
A Simple Solution....Yea!
I do not want to lose any of you, so please subscribe in the sidebar (under my picture) with "any" email address you want.
This is the easiest way to avoid the silliness and still get my blog posts/updates directly to your inbox. :-)
Be sure to add the blog's email to your contacts so that the posts don't end up in your spam. :-)
Mad Mimi will automatically send posts to your email inbox! Yea!
If you want to read the fine print from Google...
In 2011, we announced the retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.
