Blogger Starts Following Followers

Google Blogger has started a following feature and now there is a new widget to add to your blogs to show off the number of followers you have. As Google gradually rolls out the feature, your blogging activities are getting more integrated.

By following your blog, your readers tell the world they’re a fan of your blog. Your Dashboard will show how many followers your blogs has and with a click on the Followers icon, you can browse your followers, see what blogs they write, and read the other blogs they’re following. I have been using this feature in Tumblr (which hosts our photoblog), but this is on a much larger scale.

You can show off your followers by adding the Followers gadget to your blog’s sidebar. From the “Layout | Page Elements” tab, click “Add a Gadget” and select “Followers” from the gadgets list. Its also integrated with Google Reader, and you can now see a special folder in Reader called “Blogs I’m Following” with subscriptions for all of the blogs you follow!

Well I dont’ see the feature activated on my dashboard yet, but they assure us that the Following feature is being rolled out to all over the next few weeks…

    hmm i guess much people arent using it yet, because we already have a blogroll, along with feed subscribers. I guess Im still trying to figure out the diff.

    How do you get rid of the “followers (count)”. That is, do not show the number (count) that Blogger shows in the Followers (***)?

    The movies in your Instant Queue will then appear on
    your Roku Digital Video Player. There are countless of
    brands and options out there, It will not matter how many questions you ask yourself, there will not be enough of them to point you to a
    single TV-set. There are thousands of such websites over the internet
    where you can watch free movies online without downloading.

    Pretty nice post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wished to mention that
    I’ve really enjoyed surfing around your weblog posts.

    In any case I will be subscribing in your feed and I’m hoping you write again

    Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but
    I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free
    platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Thank you!
