In which Google fucks us all over

Hey people!  Do you know about this?  About the fact that Google has decided that if you don’t have a Google hosted blog, they’re going to fuck you over?  Well, I doubt THEY think they’re fucking you over, but they are.  What are they doing?  Well, if your BLOG isn’t on blogspot then you can no longer deliver your RSS feed over Google Friend Connect.

 

This doesn’t impact me all that much because honestly, I don’t have that many GFC readers but a lot of you out there, A WHOLE LOT, actually have thousands of readers.

 

Because of all this, people who want to follow your blog need to follow a different way.  I actually owe Heather from Note from Lapland a HUGE shoutout for this beause if I hadn’t received an email from her, I never would have known (I’m oblivious like that).  At any rate, I sent out the following email to my GFC peeps and I’ve decided to share it with you guys in case any of you follow that way but haven’t checked your reader.

 

Dear esteemed readers of All Fooked Up:

… or at least people who are signed up on Google Friend Connect for All Fooked Up but may or may not actually read the blog.  Yeah, I’m talking to you.

Due to unforeseen and possibly extremely stupid circumstances, Google has decided that they will NO LONGER allow Google Friend Connect to send you a feed for blogs that aren’t hosted on Blogger.

My blog (All Fooked Up) isn’t hosted on blogger.

So, what does this mean to you?  Well…

If you never read my blog you should just ignore this.

If you read my blog through Google Friend Connect PAY ATTENTION.  You will need to now follow my blog in one of the following ways:

Follow me on Twitter to see the links on tweet!

Follow me on Facebook and I’ll appear in your newsfeed!

Follow me by email (I think this is the easiest personally and the form is below)!

Follow me by RSS feed

Follow me by car (this seems somewhat stalkerish in my opinion)

Follow me by … oh sorry, I just got carried away.

So there you are.  These are your choices.  If you read this on Google it will stop on March 1, 2012 so you have until then to do something about it.

I won’t harass you …. MUCH …

Thanks so much!!!

Lynn MacDonald aka All Fooked Up

So there you are!  Hopefully you’ll get the picture and follow me a different way and HOPEFULLY it won’t be by car.  DO IT NOW!!

Thanks,

Lynn

    Google didn’t cut down that tree across from your house did they? Because it’s much cheaper sitting on that branch than following you in my car—gas is expensive these days! Although, on nights when it rains, climbing that tree is rather difficult with an umbrella…

    I don’t mind that you’re a psychopath, but when you put profanity in the title it shows up on Greensboro101 and kids see it. Use your brain for something other than a hat rack.

        Your regular conduct suggests otherwise.

    I follow you by ermail. It’s really convenient. And no, that is not me outside in your bushes.

    I don’t have Facebook, Twitter, or any of that other stuff. It makes it more difficult to keep up with the stuff on the net I want to read, but I’m ok with that.

    I follow you by Bloglovin. However, I may want to follow you by car since you make it sound so appealing and stalkery.

    I have been warned that my blog (which is a blogspot) is subject to spammer comments and I should sign up w/ commentluv. But then per their site their software doesn’t work with blogger at the moment…

    Grrr…technology…so great and so annoying.

    Hope you are well!
