Being a foodie isn't JUST the Gourmet aspects, it's a love of ALL foods without inhibitions. It's like being kinky in bed. You don't stop doing the missionary position just because you like getting tied up...
I used to have 9 followers, now I have 5...I have not deleted you. This message from Blogger/Google is why... Dear bloggers,
As we mentioned some weeks ago, starting this week, 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. To follow a blog via Google Friend Connect now, readers will need a Google Account (the same they use for Gmail or YouTube). There will be no need for readers to be signed in, or to have a Google+ profile.
What does this mean for you and your blog? We’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count
What can you do now? You should encourage your users to re-follow your blog using a Google account. Another way to allow users to follow your blog is with the “Follow by Email” gadget, which requires you to set up Feedburner. By subscribing to your blog, readers will be notified via e-mail every time there is a new post.
To install the “Follow by Email” gadget:
Go to blogger.com and choose the blog you want to install the gadget
On the left menu, click on Layout
Once in the layout page, click on add a gadget
Find the “Follow by email” gadget and click on the + sign next to it
Choose the title of the gadget but don’t change your Feedburner URL
Click on Save and then Save arrangement on the top right corner.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.
