Concerning Bloglovin'

Just a quick mutter from me re bloglovin'. 

 I have read such varied stories about what will happen in July to our Google Reader.  
The general idea now seems to be that we will not lose our followers/following.

An observation from me is that I am really enjoying using bloglovin' and I am ready should my lovely followers/following disappear.  

  I have just spent some time sorting out the blogs I follow into folders on bloglovin'. 
 I still have some work to do on this but I have chosen folders like Blog Challenges, Craft Blogs and Inspirational.  
 I will further refine these through time but do not regret the time I have spent working on this.
 
 You do not have the option to sort out the blogs you are following via Google Reader.
  
When I have a new entry and I view on bloglovin' I can see how many new entries there are in each folder and view the appropriate folder. 
 So much fun.  How sad am I.

If you do decide to transfer your reading list to bloglovin' it will not affect your Google Reader and I would be so pleased to see you there if you were to decide to follow me.  

Hugs to all

Opened up on Bloglovin'

Hello and happy day to everyone.  I have no idea what is going on at present but it appears that Google Reader is to close in July and I have opened up on Bloglovin', so that I can keep in touch with all of your beautiful creations.  It now appears from other sources that we may not be affected at all. 

I am sure this will all become clearer nearer the time.  I would be so grateful if you could continue to follow me on Bloglovin, by clicking on the widget below.  I have just checked on bloglovin and I seem to be good to go with both blogs I am following and an option for those to choose if they wish to follow me.  Hope to see you on bloglovin'

Hugs to all.
