Hi guys, I come with a bit of bad news to all of you who use Google Friend Connect (GFC) to keep up to date with my new posts here on Le Beauty Group. As of the 1st of March 2012, Google will deactivate GFC for non-blogger hosted blogs.
Exactly who will be affected by this change is still not clear to me, but just in case my blog is affected, I wouldn’t want to leave you guys wondering why you’re not getting any Le Beauty Group updates on your Blogger dashboard. So here are a few options for you to still follow this blog in case it all goes pear-shaped for GFC.
This is my preferred alternative to GFC. All you have to do is click on the ‘Follow’ button on the Hellocotton box on the right-hand side of this page and sign up to an account. You can connect with your Facebook account or create a new one, and when you login to your Hellocotton account, you’ll immediately see the updates of all the blogs you follow on your Newsfeed.
You don’t need to have a blog yourself to create an account on Hellocotton.
I have a Facebook page for Le Beauty Group and everything happening on Le Beauty Group is immediately broadcasted there. I also post extra photos and updates there, so it’s a great way to keep in touch and interact! All you need is a Facebook account and ‘Like’ my page there.
I also have a bloglovin profile, which does the same thing Hellocotton does, but depending on your personal preference, one might appeal more to you than the other. Once on my bloglovin page, hit the follow button and login or create a new account.
If you don’t fancy any of the options above, you can use the good old e-mail susbcription service. You’ll receive an e-mail every time I publish a new blog post. To subscribe, scroll to the right-hand side on this page, type your e-mail address on the ‘Follow By E-mail’ section, hit submit and you’re done!
If all else fails, you can always rely on Twitter to hear about the latest news, but be prepared to put up with a lot of rambling as well! :)
I hope this isn’t too much of an inconvenience and thank you for all your constant support and kind messages. If you have any problems with the following options I gave, please ask me and I’ll try my best to help you! :)
