YAY!!! I just found Linky Followers (and a blog hop)



I've been more than a little sad over the loss of GFC. Google Plus just isn't intuitve enough for me. Plus, there aren't any pictures of my followers in the widget, and I rarely go to the Google Plus page to read the feeds. Blessedly, it would appear that there may be a better  alternative that's more like GFC.

 You may have noticed that I'm a fan of Linky Tools and use it every week for the Flock Together Blog Hop. So I was elated when I happened to run across a widget for Linky Followers on The Taylor House blog. I went to  Linky Followers and signed up for free. It required only a few steps, and the directions were easy to follow.  The one hiccup I experienced was that I had to switch from Internet Explorer to Foxfire in order to successfully upload my thumbnail photograph.

In order to see how we like it, we have to get some followers. Best way to get new followers? A Blog Hop, of course! I found one at Saving More Than Me. How about linking up and test driving the new Linky Followers? We may be in for a pleasant surprise!

Thanks for sharing this Linky giveaway. I too am not happy with google+ as an alternate. I can't seem to follow anyone as my page.

I'm having trouble adjusting to GFC too. However, at the same time, I think followers are much overrated because they don't really follow you! Mine never drop by anymore…

Thanks for commenting on Momfever!
