I’ve Been Dumped… by Google Friends Connect!

On March 1st, Google is discontinuing Google Friends Connect for non-blogger websites. Well! While no one likes being dumped, life goes on. So I am removing the Google Friend Connect widget. Take that, Google! I’m dumping you before you can dump me!

If you use Google Friends Connect as a way to read my entries in Google Reader, it is very easy to set up the RSS feeds to Book Reviews & More by Kathy. In the META box, click on “entries RSS”. When the “subscribe to this feed” page comes up, use the drop down menu to select “Google”. And you’re all set up!

As for eBook contests, life just got easier for everyone. There’s still a contest form, but if you’ve already filled it out, you don’t have to fill it out again. Life is too short to make things complicated for everyone. Y’all have been loyal followers of my site, and Google Friends Connect or not, you’ll still visit me.

Thank you for making Book Reviews and More by Kathy a daily stop on your internet journey!

    Stupid Google! Just when I was starting to learn how to use it 
    You’ve got a great week ahead. More new authors and books for me to add to my scary ginormous TBR pile 

    I’m with Cec..lol. Hope I did it right with Meta? Guess I will find out right? Seems like just when I find out how to use something it changes again.

    I’m not the most tech savvy person out there so I guess I’ll continue to get the email daily of your posts. I didn’t use Google connect anyway.
