GFC, Google+, Bloglovin...what to do?

Happy Sunday, everyone,

Before I address the topic of today's post, I wanted to let everyone know that auditions are open for American Crafter Season 4 until February 29, 2012.  Click HERE for more information.  I've entered and if you haven't you should!

Okay, now onto the Google Friends Connect issue.  I consider myself a new blogger and I am definitely technologically challenged so all the buzz about Google Friends Connect going away and join Linky Followers parties have my head spinning.   I found a blog, "The Real Blogger Status" that posted info about this matter on November, 23, 2011.  You can read it HERE.

Although this is a blogger blog, I am still confused about the Google Friends Connect vs Google Plus thing.  I did jump on the linky follower bandwagon but I found the dashboard to be difficult for me to use.  Also, I have learned that unlike GFC, you must upload your post into linky followers.  If you do not upload posts, followers do not know you have new material for them.

I did go to bloglovin and their dashboard is very similar to Bloggers'/GFC:  look, feel, logic.  It is also free and like GFC, bloglovin links up your posts automatically so your followers don't miss a single post.

I'd love to hear what everyone else is learning/has learned about GFC/Google+/Bloglovin/Linky Followers etc.
