Add Followers

I haven't done a blogging tip for a while and so I thought I'd feature a couple of the newest Blogger gadgets.

I'm sure you have noticed that when you log in to your Dashboard on Blogger to do a new post, you'll see the number of "followers" you have on your blog.

You can easily add this to your side bar by clicking on the plus sign next to the Followers Gadget.

To add the blogs you are following and show up on this list is also easy. Go to your Dashboard and then scroll down to the bottom. You'll see this picture and press ADD. You can import the blogs you want from your google reader.

You can then take it a step further and add the Blog List gadget to your side bar. It works just like Google Reader/Bloglines and will it will show how long it's been since there was a new post.

Personally, I've been ignoring this new update just because I don't like change. Yes Ladies, I like things the way I like them and software updates annoy me. {{giggle}} Anyway, a while ago, I read the funniest post about Blogger's new function "Add Followers" over on Paige's Blog and I've been thinking about it ever since.

Paige seriously cracks me up. However, she really has a good discussion topic. Does this new feature cause additional Blenvy and competition? Please comment, I want to know your honest feelings. Also, have you decided to add it to your blog? Why or Why not?
