The only thing that bothers me about Bloglovin' is there's no table of photos like there is with Friend Connect, which nobody seems to be using anymore (I mean, following a blog through Fried Connect). So the blogger has no idea who might be following her blog. As far as I've been able to figure out, all that Bloglovin' shows is how many people have hit the "follow me on Bloglovin'" button, which in my case is pitifully few (I doubt that anyone in my family is even among them).
Hmmm. I know there was some talk of Google discontinuing some of its features which is why people made the leap - Google Reader at least is being discontinued. I do know that I get an email when people follow me for the first time on Bloglovin' (and by people, I mean person). :) The verdict is still out for me, but since so many were making the leap, I thought I should put that option out there!
