How to Follow My Blog while GFC isn’t Working.

I don’t know why blogger is having problems again with Google Friend Connect. If the “follow” button in the ‘Let’s be friends!’ box isn’t showing, blogger is having some problems with their follow button. Even though the button isn’t showing…you can still follow me by clicking “FOLLOW” on the top left side of my blog along my navigation barIt is next to the “blog search”, “report abuse”, “next blog” and “share” links. Just scroll up to the very top of the page and click on “Follow”! :)Thanks for your support and interest in my blog! I really do appreciate each and every follower of this blog!-Nikki

If you make this recipe, snap a photo and hashtag it #chefintraining and/or #chefintrainingblog. I would love to see how these recipes take shape in your kitchens.

  10. Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted

    Phew...I thought it was just me that was having issues. Atleast your other sidebar gadgets are showing, my whole sidebar is missing and is some how way, way, way down at the bottom of the page. People would only see it if they kept scrolling. Irritates me because I'm running a giveaway right now....argh you blogger!

    In from another blog and am following, would appreciate same. Thanks.

    What is going on with Blogger GFC? I keep hearing how the box isn't showing up on so many blogs but yet for me, mine still shows up. Why would it glitch on only some blogs but not all? Very strange. Sometimes I feel like switching over to WP but then I hear complaints about that, too. I guess nothing is perfect.

    Thanks for the tip on how to follow without the box! Funny, I never knew you could do that! You see? You learn a new thing everyday!

    Now following you :)

    Hey, the GFC box is showing! I am NOW following you for sure because I saw my name come up :) I'm sorry it didn't work the first time -- strange because I followed the directions and it DID say "you are now following...." so I just assumed it went through...

    Have a great weekend :)

    Hi there thanks so much for visiting!!! I love your blog name! can't wait to read more ... now following you also.

    Yes, I think everyone is experiencing thetechnical challenges of Blogger ... I think it has something to do with Google buying them out. What I have found allwos me to see the Followers like before is by logging in with Google Chrome ... Hopefully this will get sorted out soon ... wishing you a fabulous day! HHL
