Brief thoughts from a new-but-not-really blogger.

Like I said, I'm not new to blogging, but Blogger is a totally different world than Tumblr, and I have a lot of questions!

Like Google Friend Connect.. I see it on lots of people's blogs, but when I google it, it says it doesn't exist anymore. So what's the deal there?

What other websites do people like? I've seen that several people use Chictopia. What else do you love?

I gotta say, it's very intimidating to try to break into a new blogging scene. My Tumblr blog is very well established, and has a good-sized following. But now I'm basically a nobody. While it's weird to not know anyone, I have a fresh start, and that is a great feeling.

I should start over more often.

So GFC is paired with Google Reader, so it'll go away in June. Bloglovin' is what everyone else is using nowadays.

And it's good to start over :) Keep it up!

Yep, Jenna said it... GFC was the big thing people used to gauge numbers/followers but now Bloglovin is where everyone is asking people to follow (probably again, because it's easy to track followers). That said, everyone's in the same boat as you since most bloggers are trying to get people to switch over to a new reading platform and get their numbers back.

Good for you girl! I started blogging around a year ago then stopped and just started back up again. I love bloglovin because it's easy to keep track of followers but honestly I like it cuz I can keep better track of the blogs I follow! (now you're one of them!)

My sister tried to get me to go the tumblr route but I thought it wasn't what I wanted. I'm glad I'm with blogger!

Tumblr is fun, but I'm LOVING blogger so far. Glad we found each other =)

Alyssa said...

Good to know that everyone's kind of in the same boat again. Thanks! =)

I still can't believe GR is going away. I used it pretty heavily even before I started using Blogger. Sad day!
