I was no longer seeing posts that I had no interest in. It's due to be cleaned up again soon, but I'll probably just leave it-- for one reason and one reason only: I rarely (if ever!) scroll through my dashboard anymore. If I truly want to follow your blog, I'm following by email or RSS. Maybe even both! Because that just works better for me.
But you see that number over there? --->
Yeah, the one above the GFC widget. I mean, there's Google Plus over there too, but I'm not even sure what that's even for. BUT! That GFC number? I'd trade it any day for email or RSS subscribers. If I had that many, I would die of the awesome. Maybe GFC is your M.O. But what if just once, you made an effort to follow a blogger you really like through a different method? You might actually like it! Anywho, that's my "two cents". In short, I'd actually love for you to follow via Email or RSS, but it's no big deal if you don't. GFC is going away anyhow (I actually hope for this. It's clunky and I dislike it.), and if it does I'll have an excuse to remove it. Until then, it will be here, though.
But if you unfollow me via GFC and follow by another method? I will LOVE you forever, just sayin'. Not that I don't love you now, if you're reading this.
