Google Reader (and possibly GFC) are going!

So you may or may not have heard the news that Google will soon be retiring its Google Reader service - whilst GFC is not automatically closing, once Google Reader is gone, GFC will become somewhat redundant and the general opinion seems to be that it won't be long before they get rid of that too.
At the time of writing, I have 154 followers. I value absolutely every single one of you equally!! However since the vast majority of those 154 currently follow me via GFC you can probably understand that the thought of it ceasing to exist fills me with dismay.
So. If you currently follow Glitter Mountain via GFC,  please check out my sidebar where you will find following widgets for my Bloglovin', Hellocotton and Networked Blogs accounts, as well as my Twitter account, where I post links to all of my latest posts. (You can also subscribe to an email feed).

    1. It's taken me two years to get that many followers :(

  2. As someone who reads via a different rss reader, can I ask, what is GFC?

    1. Hi, GFC is Google Friend Connect. It's a widget (mine is in the sidebar) that keeps track of whoever is following your blog with Google Reader. Or, if you're the one following, you use GFC as a way to add the blog to your Google Reader feed.
