So much to say so little time...

I feel like I'm running out of time...time to bake, time to clean, time to sleep, time to do card orders, time to wrap presents.....falalalalalalaaaaaaa...

Ahhhhhh.....what the heck is this thing with Google getting rid of GFC in 2012?!!! I feel a bit defeated with that one. How about you? In the last 4 months I have been working my butt off to promote my blog, to get my name out there. I am now finally seeing it pay off, my readership has grown (my followers definitely!) and my page views have been through the roof! And now, it's just a waste? Trying to get more followers and commenting like crazy was just a waste of time? Don't get me wrong, I write because I enjoy it, but everyone loves seeing those numbers go up. Especially that little follower number in the corner. It's instant gratification for me, without checking my stats I can see that someone else enjoys what I write. So how do I see that now? I'm supposed to sway everyone over to Google+? I checked it out a bit, and I'm not convinced on the whole thing. It seems more complicated to follow the blogs you love.

I used that follow button to read and enjoy all the blogs that I have grown to love. Does anyone know if losing GFC has anything to do with your reading list on your blogger Dashboard? I think I would go insane if I didn't have that!!! I know I could subscribe via email for all the blogs I love, but really, I have a hard enough time finding the important email that got lost somewhere in my inbox as it is, let alone sorting through millions of blog posts daily. Plus, I'm sure my husband would divorce me, because my quick, 'I'm just checking my email' would take all day! At least when I login to blogger, I'm there to blog. To read blogs. To write blogs. My blog time. My blog time can't interrupt my email time. It's to confusing.

As I've gotten older, adjusting to change is not as easy as it once was. I'm like an older person tyring to use the internet for the first time! Urgh...plus, I have no time to learn yet something else!!!

Ok, so I've just rambled on...sorry, just needed to vent and it probably doesn't even make sense because I don't feel like re-reading...boo....just needed to vent!!

So, ya...for all my precious followers out there- Don't leave me! I love reading all your comments and seeing your friendly faces on my sidebar...:D

They are only retiring it for non-blogger sites. Anyone with a blogspot will still have GFC. So you're stuck with our faces on your sidebar. :)

I am not a fan of Google+. And I totally know what you mean about watching those numbers grow! It feels awesome to know that your blog is getting out there and recognized, and then to see that it's all for nothing?! Yeah, I'm with ya on that one. I'm just gonna let "Future Alyx" deal with this problem.

Yah, I read that somewhere and was like what the?!...but I haven't seen too much follow up, I'm assuming that they are trying to transition to google + but like Angee says...we'll still be around...and I've given up cleaning for the month of December :)
