A Bouquet of Talent Linky Party #27

It's time for a party!!  I cannot wait to see what you've created this week.  I think the Pick of the Bunch Fabulous Friday Features this week was the hardest one, yet!  Wow, I am going to say it again this week.....the talent and inspiration is AMAZING!!  You are all so talented and creative.  

I am sure by now that many of you, if not all of you have heard, that Google Reader is going away!  Everyone is in a panic as to what to do!  I have heard both sides saying Good Friends Connect is not going with the Reader, and I've also heard it's only a matter of time.  So what is a blogger to do?  

First of all, I am definitely not the person to answer that question!!  However, I have been doing some research this afternoon.   I had never really given much thought to the fact you don't get pageviews in a reader if you don't truncate your feed.  There's no reason to visit your blog when the entire post is already there.  

Honestly, I like to follow blogs every way I can so I don't miss anything!  I love to  click through my emails on my phone, and check out the latest posts.   I think it is important to give your followers many options to follow your blog.  We all have our favorite way of doing things.  

Many people are hopping right on over to  Bloglovin'!  I actually added that way to follow last week, and didn't have a clue about Google Reader.  Just wanted to give followers of my blog another option.   I was happy to see that Bloglovin' does generate traffic to your site, because they only post the top part of your post.  

For anyone who is interested, several us of will be hosting a Bloglovin' Blog Hop on Thursday.   If you are interest in adding Bloglovin' followers, be sure and join us at the hop!  

Enough of the frustrating stuff............time to party!!

Google Reader...Feedburner...my doesn't Google like to shake us up! LOL!!
I did know that if we don't click on a blog to open it the blog doesn't get credit for page views and for adverts...that's a big thing.
Guess we should never get comfortable. Keeps those little gray cells working. :)

Joy@aVintageGreen said...

I just set up Bloglovin and I think Blog Reader blogs showed up. I notice that I can't link to a blog address without going back to my own blog and clicking on a specific blogger post in my personal blog list.

Thanks for hosting and also writing about using Bloglovin.

Found you on the Aloha blog hop, the title of your blog caught my attention because I live in Baton Rouge and we have a Lakeshore drive here. I saw where you made a purple and gold wreath, which could've been for Mardi Gras but didn't know if it was LSU inspired. Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday!

I'm glad you mentioned the Blog Lovin' button, I think that one's harder to notice when it's new. I'm following you that way now too. :)

Clint Baker said...

Thank you for stopping by today! I am following you as well. And I want to encourage you to start gardening in the city Like I am.

Hi Kathy, thanks for another party! Never thought much about bloglovin' but I've felt GFC was gonna go sooner or later. I like Linky Tools but I'll be looking into BL.

I made it to the party this week, just in time! I managed to put together an Easter tablescape with things that I have on hand and haven't packed away, yet! We are scheduled to make our move south on April 15th...I will be back with tons of projects to make our new place a comfortable new home!
Hope you are well, I have missed being involved in the blogging world! xoxo hugs JP
