housekeeping


Bet this photo got your attention, huh. 
How could it not? I wish I looked that good cleaning the floor.

A few housekeeping items that I wanted to cover with y'all before I go MIA for 7 days on my mission trip.  

First of all, many bloggers have been talking about google friend connect going away. However, when I do a google search, I can only find bloggers writing about it. Nothing legitimate directly from Google.    If anyone knows where the initial source of this information is, please link to it in the comments.
I want to make sure it's not just bloggy rumors spreading out of control.

But just in case the rumor is true, I'd love it if you'd kindly follow me on bloglovin so that we can stay connected. If you don't use that site, how about we stay besties through Instagram, Facebook or Twitter? You are bound to use one of those, I know you do. ;) I just don't want to loose contact with all of my lovely blog friends.

Secondly or lastly (depends on how you look at it), some of you ask me some fantastic questions in the comments on this blog. Other times, I get some riveting thoughts in the comments that I want to respond to. But when I go into my email to respond, I get the dreaded no-reply email message. Many people don't even realize they're a no-reply blogger.  I didn't realize that I was but recently fixed that. Thanks Bethany for telling me. If you've ever asked me a question and haven't gotten a response...no-reply blogger is probably why. Hopefully you feel compelled to click here to learn more about this no-reply business so I can get back atcha if you ask me a question. 

Cyber hugs to all of you..and baby dust to those who need it! 
See ya in 170 hours.

As I understand it, Google is cancelling Google Reader- which is the program that non-bloggers can use to read blogs through (well bloggers can use it too). However most bloggers who use GFC are using the blogger homepage to read the subscribed blogs, and I've been wondering too if GFC is going for us away then or maybe if it's just Google Reader, which since I don't use, maybe it won't affect me? I'm not sure myself.

I heard that rumor too.
Mostly from bloggers but I can def. see it happening.

Have a blast Jessah! I hope this journey brings you peace and fills your heart with happiness.

I think it's only google reader that is going away, and gfc links up to blogger and google reader. That being said, I think we are safe, but I gotcha on blog lovin sistah!

Laura said...

I hope that you have the BEST time while you're away. I pray that you have a safe trip, what a neat thing to be a part of!!

I haven't heard anything about the Google friend thing, but I will always follow your blog. :)

Of course you will be missed, but I'm sure you will enjoy every minute of this amazing opportunity!
