GOOGLE CHANGES RULES
FOR BLOG READERS:
As part of this plan, starting the week of January 11, Google will 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, Google will remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a more difficult time connecting with those who have blogs, such as me.
Google encourages me to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. And that is the reason for this announcement. However, there is a plus to this: With a Google Account, you will get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for you to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
So, please, don't lose the ability to connect with this blog. If you have to, please open a Google account. It will open up a huge opportunity to connect with other great links, plus, it will make it easier to connect with this blog account.
Thank you so much.
