This announcement seemed important enough to give it its own blog post. I encourage you to read this latest announcement from Blogger Buzz about changes coming to Google Friend Connect.
Frankly, I wasn't aware the Google Friend Connect was even active any more, but I've kept it in my left sidebar just the same. I just love looking at your smiling faces, you know? Nevertheless, beginning in January, Google will remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. If you fall into that category of readers, you will need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow this blog and any others you might be following via Google Friend Connect.
This whole announcement doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but maybe it will make sense to some of you. The bottom line is that if you start missing us here at Cat Patches, that might be the reason. If you're unsure, consider following via one of the other methods listed there in my left side bar. You're all valued friends, and I'd hate to lose you.
