How To Follow Someone On GFC

Technology is great. Really. Except when it doesn't work. In those cases, it's really annoying. Luckily, my sweet friend Kayla taught me a little technology trick that I just have to share! (Thanks, Kayla!)
Me personally, I prefer Google Friend Connect (GFC) over Bloglovin' any day of the week, and twice on Sundays. That's just my preference. So, you can probably imagine my sadness when I get error messages such as: We're sorry... We were unable to handle your request. Please try again or return a bit later.

I have a feeling Google isn't actually sorry. But that's just my Negative Nancy coming out because of these technology issues. Anyways, THERE'S A SOLUTION! If you're unable to follow any blogs via GFC or if you've noticed no one is able to follow your blog, then you need to keep on reading. This will help you tremendously!

Step 1: Log in to your blog and view your dashboard. On the left side of the page, you'll want to click on "Add".

Step 2: Type in the URL (or copy/paste) of the blog you want to follow. Click "Follow". It's that easy!


  1. Instead of clicking and scrolling all the way down, you can also click ADD under "Reading List" on the left side of your home screen, it takes you to the same place! :) I just found that out today!! I'm so glad I'm not the only who reads blogs through blogger and is having GFC issues!

  2. Yeah you can also click add on your blogger dashboard ;) that is what I was saying..hehe...but YAY! Glad its working. :) LOVE!

    I also don't really like bloglovin...not sure why!!

  3. I thought they got rid of the GFC following thing! Im so totally confused now hahaha! Every day I feel like I need to learn 10,000 more things about blogging!

  4. I followed your instructions today, and tried to follow you, and it didn't work. :( I got this message: - An error occured, try again later. Error code: bX-9uiy2j Hide
    I think Google must be in the process of changing something to fix the problem. There are still complaints all over the internet. I'll check back later and see if you've found any other way around it. :) Thanks!
