GFC: Goodbye!

So…..I lost the majority of my lovely and wonderful GFC followers today! I’m not on Blogger. Because I haven’t been blogging much lately, I was unaware that GFC was retiring on March 1, 2012…for those not on Blogger. GFC no longer works for those on WP or any other blogging platform. I wish I had paid more attention to this. I could have sent an e-mail newsletter and posted how to follow me.

Over the last two years, I worked so hard to build up my following. 800 + gone! C’est la vie!

However, there are ways you can follow “That’s Swell!”

My RSS Feed


Linky Followers (I would really appreciate this one!)

Networked Blogs


Google + (I’m still debating on this because I’m MAD! lol)

I hope to see all of my followers on “That’s Swell! again. Of course, I welcome new ones too ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. From what I understand, GFC still works for bloggers.

    Great graphic btw.

  2. I’m sorry that you’ve lost all your GFC followers- I can only imagine how disheartening it must be. I will try to follow you in which ever other way I can:) I’ve heard that GFC will be cancelled for Blogger as well, so I can expect to lose my small number of followers too. No worries, though. Your blog’s content is great and I’m sure that people will keep coming back and you’ll soon build up a good follower base again. Good luck!:)

  3. I’m still here! **Waves** Lol. And I’m following through Linky Followers and Google Reader. Even though my blog is on Blogger, I’ve been relying less and less on GFC because I’ve also heard the rumor that they’re planning on phasing it out for us as well.

    I’m still here! *waves!* I think I was one of your GFC followers, but I have you in my sidebar, so I get all your updates anyway. *phew!*

    I wish they’d stop messing with this stuff – we go to all the trouble of building up our readership, and then they just take it away. Is it true that GFC will be disappearing from blogger blogs too? ๐Ÿ™

    Aw, bummer! Really, it’s only a matter of time before blogger-blogs will lose out on GFC as well. I subscribe via RSS. I don’t really know much about Linky Followers. Do you think that’ll be the new “thing”?
