Well this has been an interesting week........ First Google announces that GFC will shut down after July 1st , then the FTC releases new guidelines for bloggers concerning sponsored reviews, & also new info on hosting giveaways, contests & such . Wow...
What does this mean for me? Well if you didn't know I am a Beauty blogger & I work alot with companies. Companies like to sponsor my posts, etc so this is important news. I need to make sure I am following the law & guidelines. As far GFC goes, I had a feeling as did so many of other bloggers. I mean over a year ago when it was declared Wordpress wouldn't have GFC anymore there was much speculation that GFC would go for blogger as well. I knew it was coming... I have to admit GFC was one of the reasons I liked blogger, yet I don't see myself leaving blogger, personally it fits & I like the simpleness of it .
Its just that us as bloggers have to find new services that fit us best to transfer our feeds to & to where our readers can easily follow & read our posts, because we would hate to lose you! The most popular feed we are all transferring too, is Bloglovin. I have always had an account... Its easy & it easily transfers the blogs you follow to it from GFC... They are def getting big business right now.
So what do I offer? Well for the time being I will be using Bloglovin & Hellocotton. I hope that my current followers will continue to follow through these platforms.. I am looking at few others but these 2 are easy & have so many that are already on it, it makes it easier to have something that ppl are already used too.
The links are down below, just click the buttons & I will try to included them in every post to make it easy for you guys..
Dont forget that I am now taking Blog swaps & Ad spots for this blog, Blogs,Shops, etc are welcome!
To my bloggers & readers.. how do these changes affect you?
