Apparently Google is taking away the Google Friend Connect capabilities for blogs that are not hosted on blogger. So if you are a follower through GFC, on March 1, 2012 you will no longer get Sewing Novice updates.
There are other ways to get updates though. At the top right of the page, you will see the Follow Us! section. There, you can choose to follow via email, Facebook, Twitter, RSS, and/or Pinterest.
No pressure, I just wanted to make everyone aware just in case you haven’t heard the news yet.
