Do You Use Google Friend Connect?

     Please check out At The Picket Fence. It's a wonderful blog written by two sisters, Vanessa & Heather. You can find posts about crafts, recipes and just plain ole inspirations! :)

     They updated everyone about Google Friend Connect tool...as it will be going away March 1st for other platforms besides Google. But there is another cool Linky Tool that is being promoted!!! I just signed up for! The easiest way to sign up is click the FOLLOW ME icon under the ABOUT ME to the right. :) It will walk you through the steps. :)

     I did get stumped in one area. After signing up I could no figure out how to get my widget code on my blog so So I'd thought I'd share how to do that...you know just in case someone else had the same problem!
When you are in your dashboard on LinkyFollowers. Go to Manage Your Blogs tab. You should have added YOUR blog in there. Right below where you see YOUR blog will be a window that is open with coding in it.  Copy and paste that code into a html/javascript gadget on your dashboard. Then save it and it will be on your sidebar. Then ""drumroll"" it should be there! :)


     Let me know when you sign up and I'll follow you. :) Just leave me a comment below.

     I do like the idea of managing the blogs I follow. I've been waiting for a tool to come out like this. :)
Thank you Vanessa & Heather for informing us of some great information!!!!

Oh yes, and we have a furry friend too, a chihuahua mix named Gibson. Used to have three at one time, a Golden, a Yorkie and a Beagle...all gone to doggy heaven now. :( Yours are adorable.
