How to Stay in Touch Post-GFC

As most of you have probably heard by now, Google is discontinuing the Google Friend Connect service for non-Blogger blogs as of March 1, 2012. Dragonflight Dreams is not a Blogger site, so this means if you’ve been using GFC to keep up with posts you’re getting cut off as of the end of this month. Boo! 🙁 I don’t want to lose any of you lovely readers, so here are alternate ways you can stay up to date with the goings-ons here:



Subscribe to Posts via Email

Email Address:


RSS Feed (through your reader of choice)


Social Networks

You can also find regular updates from me on Twitter and Facebook.


I’ll keep the GFC widget up there in the sidebar until the end of month, just don’t forget to change to a new following method before then! 🙂


  1. im on blogspot now but before i was just thinking about moving to typepad thank you for this fyi though
    God bless you i will follow your blog still

  2. I don’t use GFC as my reader but like to show bloggers that I read their blog by following them through it. I use bloglovin as my reader. As a blogger though, I like clicking on my followers blogs via GFC I hate how in Bloglovin’ you can see how many followers you have but you don’t know exactly who is following. Bummed that GFC is going away 🙁

    1. I’m the exact same way! I use NetNewsWire as my reader, but have signed on to sites through GFC just to show my visible support. I agree that Bloglovin’ would be better if there was a way to see WHO was following your blog.

      You, me = same wavelength. 😉

  3. I grab RSS feeds or bloglovin’ nowadays. Hopefully people will catch on soon that GFC is going away, especially those who are doing giveaways with mandatory GFC follows on non-blogger blogs. (

    1. Haha, yeah, I saw your tweets about GFC and giveaways. I got a little pop-up notice on my GFC widget with the news that it was going away, so you’d think even if people had somehow missed all the articles/tweets/etc. floating around, that would clue them in. Here’s hoping.
