In conjunction with my blog make over, I'll be holding a contest here next week so that YOU can win a blog make over by Edie! Details will appear Monday so be sure and check back. And if you come by Sunday, I may be "under construction" so don't worry!
Now, about the Follow Me title today. Jesus said to those who he picked to be his disciples "Follow me" He says it in Matthew 4:19 to Peter and Andrew, and again to another disciple in Matthew 8:22. But that isn't what I'm blogging about today.
Today, I am going to ask you to follow me. What?! No, I'm not getting freaky on you. This is a new blogger tool. I'm going to leave behind my blog roll, and instead update my blog to a "Follow Me" listing. This seems to be the latest & greatest blog tool. It is similar to a blog role, only it allows me to see who is "following me" and then in turn I can follow them. Sometimes I teach you about God, today I'm going to teach you about blogger.
By following YOUR blogs, I can see from my blogger dashboard when and if you've updated, allowing me to read more blogs, because I'll only visit you when you've updated, and not on days when you haven't. So I can visit someone else on that day. It will save me time, and by following me you can only visit me when I've updated, and it will save you time too. Plus you won't miss if I do a "bonus" blog, because it will let you know on your dashboard when I've updated.
To Follow Me, simply click the pink "Follow This Blog" link under "Chatty Friends."
If you want more information - here is what blogger has to say on the subject:What is Following?
Do you have a favorite blog and want to let the author and readers know that you are a fan? Well now you can do that and more with the Blogger Following feature! You can even keep track of the blogs you follow on the Blogger dashboard.
How do I become a Follower of a blog?
There are several ways to become a follower of a blog. One of the easiest ways is to visit a blog that has added the Following widget and click on the "Follow this Blog" link under the "Followers" widget:
You'll then see a popup window with the options to either follow publicly or anonymously:
Select how you'd like to follow the blog, then click the orange "Follow" button. It is that simple, you are now a follower of the blog!
So today, I'm hoping you will FOLLOW ME! Thanks! Have a great weekend! Look for my exciting new look on Monday!
