Read On!

I wanted to take a quick little moment to address the Google Reader shenanigans I have been reading about lately. But before I do, I want to thank ALL of you who heard the announcement Reader will be leaving us and hopped over to Bloglovin' to follow me! I got email after email letting me know you all signed up to follow me there and it warmed my heart!

Google Reader has been my go to way to follow the blogs I love to read on a daily basis. With Google announcing Reader will be leaving there is speculation that Google Friend Connect is leaving us as well. While I don't know for sure... that gives me mixed feelings. GFC has always been the way to register how "popular" of an audience a blog has. I STILL get excited when I see those numbers grow. I have worked hard for every single follower that is there and I have felt so blessed anytime anyone signed up!  

But you know what? I also feel a sense of freedom if it does disappear. If I don't post for a few days, I have this weight on my shoulders that 1400 of you will be disappointed! And don't even get me started when people unfollow... i'm like "why don't they like me!?" Dumb, I know, but if you blog you know you notice it too! 

I realized I started this blog as my creative outlet, with the thought I could run it as a small little business for myself. But my life has changed, my creativity is being used elsewhere and my time is just jam packed with other things! I want to blog because I want to blog, not because other people are expecting me to.

So Reader, I bid you adieu and GFC, if you are going with it... it was been a good run, but I am ready to let you go as well! I will still be here sharing my life and my looks with you all, if you still choose to follow along!


  1. I posted a great tutorial on how to transfer the blogs you read on READER to Bloglovin. I hope this helps. Feel free to share my link with your followers so they don't lose their daily reads!


Thanks for taking time out to leave a comment! I love and read every single one! XO! -Hayley
