Google can suck my..


**Quick note: If you've entered my Sleek giveaway, make sure to pop back to the post, I've added another option to follow via Bloglovin so you can gain more entries!**

So if you've been under a rock all day today you'll know every blogger had their feathers in a flutter today over the announcement that Google was scrapping the Google Reader as of July 1st. If you don't know what Google Reader is, its the area where you can see all the posts from blogs you follow on your blogger homepage. There's also talks of GFC being scrapped but whats the point in following blogs via GFC if you can't read them?! 

Make sure you follow my blog via Bloglovin. 

Its easy to make an account. To get yourself a profile and a username. You just go to settings and click get my profile. It will then allow you to choose a username etc.

Its super easy to use and there's also an app so you can read on the go!

Sure what more can you want?

I think the reason Google is discontinuing these VITAL services for bloggers is to basically force people to use Google +. They know no one uses it (because its shite and I don't understand the point of it. It was shite when it came out and its still shite now) so are taking away everything else so we have no choice. Cheers google. You can suck my balls because I'm moving to Bloglovin. Shove Google + up your ar...

I should stop talking now.

  1. Wow that's such a bummer. Do you know when these changes will take effect? I'm already thinking about what a pain it'll be to not only re-follow everyone plus move my own blog over!
