So, most of you (okay, maybe just some of you) know that I switched to WordPress last month. I was more than ready to switch, despite all the stress and worrying…but the ONE thing I wasn’t happy about was the loss of Google Friend Connect. I know numbers shouldn’t matter, but I worked hard for those 1400 followers, dammit! (And I really missed all you GFC followers *hugs followers to bosom*)
But alas, I was willing to make the sacrifice. Because WordPress really is waaaay better than Blogger. But yesterday, I stumbled across this gorgeous blog (and my inner dialogue went along the lines of this: WOW, that’s a beautiful design, must be WordPress…but wait, there’s GFC…no way is this a Blogger layout! WAIT. It IS WordPress! How did she get GFC on WordPress?! How can I do that?!?!!), so I tweeted at Kelly and asked how she did it. She sent me a link to a full tutorial on how to do it, so I thought I’d share the link! Without her I would have never known I could keep it, and I want everyone else to know as well. Because for many of you wanting to make the switch, that’s one of the biggest things holding you back. So thank you Kelly for being so helpful! I also want to give a MAJOR THANK YOU to Maria at Miss Drifted Snow White for putting the tutorial together. You rock!
Anyway, here’s the link to the tutorial:
*In step 1, you don’t have to use FeedCat. Feedburner works too!
For those of you thinking about switching from Blogger to WordPress, GO FOR IT! Seriously. You won’t regret it. :)
