I know I was. I found a couple of lovely people with awesome blogs recently and I was so upset that I could not follow them via GFC. Yup, most of them had bloglovin so I added their blogs there but I would usually like to show my support by following on both mediums. Imagine how upset I was when I kept getting an error message that said:
"We're sorry... We were unable to handle your request. Please try again or return a bit later"
Other than that, the glitch was affecting my 2nd blog giveaway especially when people informed me that they were unable to follow via GFC.
And then along came my lovely blog friend, Vanessa of citron and guavaberry. She is a genius. G-E-N-I-U-S in caps! She found out a way to continue following via GFC despite the glitch and it works! It could be common sense to her but it is definitely a whole new revelation to me and boy am I so excited that I started following some lovely blogs I found a while back.
So here's how to continue following via GFC:
- Go to your blogger homepage.
- Click on the "Add" button under "Reading List".
- Enter the blog's link in the pop up window and click "follow".
- Optional to do a happy dance after that.
This method works as recently blogger also seems to have brought back the reading list. I'm so thankful for that as ever since blogger removed the reading list a year ago, I've stopped visiting many blogs. I don't like the whole Google-Blogger thing but I guess I've got to learn to keep up with changes.
You could apply this method to follow blogs that you want to follow. As for following my blog, you could hit the GFC button at the top of my blog under the header or simply click the link I've provided on the right sidebar under the GFC portion. Do let me know if you've followed me. I will definitely follow back if I find our interaction constant and meaningful.

Here's a notti little kitty shaking butt butt as a gesture of thanx. Ok, not really a gesture of thanx, I just happen to like cute little butt-shaking animals can?
