Linky Follower Blog Hop PARTY!!

We’ve all been hearing that GOOGLE Friend Connect (GFC) will be departing on 2/29/12 for non-Blogger blogs. Rumors are also spreading that it will be phased out for all blogs eventually (including blogger blogs)
So what’s a blogger to do?
Good News! There is a NEW linky tool available for all us called Linky Followers
One of the things I love about this new tool is that it works for
(it doesn’t matter if we’re wordpress or blogger, etc.; whether we’re large or small –
we can all be connected in this new way!)
I’d definitely encourage you to explore & set it on up for yourself  (it’s soooo easy to set up & it’s FREE!)
You can still have & use GFC in tandem if you like but you cannot auto transfer your GFC followers to Linky Followers. 
If you are already a GFC follower here at Northern Cottage, I’d love it if you’d join up as a linky follower to stay up on the fun!
Speaking of FuN!!….
What better way to celebrate a fun new blogging tool than to
have a party!!  go get your party dress on! 

Our friend Cheri from It’s So Very Cheri 
has started a blog hop party!! Yay!

I’m going to randomly select a Linky Follower who has joined up here at the Northern Cottage & put the spotlight on them….So link up & who knows -  you might get a full blown FEATURE all about you!  I’ll share a post about the FEATURED linker upper as well as feature that linker within the Linky TOOL itself as the CURRENT FEATURED GUEST!
** You can see I have Cheri featured right now
as a thank you for starting this lovely hop!**
See you at the Party!!
