Changes afoot at Blogger for Readers without Google accounts.

Just as the waves of the sea are ever changing, so too it seems technology is always in transformation, remaking, revamping, and hopefully improving our experience in the process, though that is not always the case. Today I'm writing to share with you one of the changes on Blogger that has negatively impacted many blogs including this one.

Google has decided to remove those blog readers who follow Blogger blogs on Google Friend Connect, but do not have Google accounts. Over the last while those of us who use the Blogger platform have suffered the loss of some followers because Google has cut them off. Here is Google/Blogger's explanation of the matter:

I dearly value all of my readers, and love the opportunity to engage with you over various topics on this blog; therefore, if this change affects you I hope you will create a Google account, then return to this blog, and join again to continue following my posts. If you prefer, you can follow by email, or by Feedly or RSS feed. You'll find those options at the bottom of this blog home page.

As always, I am very grateful to each and every one of you for taking the time to read this blog, and I dearly hope you will continue to share in my journey through Irish family history.

All the best to you and yours,


The sea at Strandhill, County Sligo
