Look what I found today over at the It's So very Cheri blog...  A little FOLLOWER party designed to inform people about the fact that GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT (GFC) will be disappearing for non-Blogger sites at the end of this month...  Here's what Cheri writes:
"Many of you have probably already heard that GOOGLE Friend Connect will go away on Feb 29 for any one that is not with blogspot, but rumor has it that it is being completely phased out for everyone soon.
There is good news
There is a NEW awesome tool–Linky Followers

It has so many amazing features (that GFC never had). If you have not signed up you should. (yes you can have both.) I love the new tool so much and want everyone to enjoy all the new features.

…and did I tell you its super easy and FREE!

What better way to celebrate a fun new blogging tool than to have a party so break out your poodle skirt and saddle back shoes cuz’ we’re having a LINKY FOLLOWER PARTY HOP~

1. you MUST have the LINKY FOLLOWERS tool on your site to participate.  {You can have both the LINKY FOLLOWERS & GFC on your site but you must have the LINKY FOLLOWERS to participate in this party hop.}

2. You MUST follow the person who has the party on their site as a thank you.

3.Just add your blog button to the LINKY PARTY below.

4.Then grab the BLOG HOP code

You will find the code right under the Linky Party where it says CLICK HERE TO ENTER–  just under that it says: WHAT IS A BLOG HOP? GET THE CODE HERE.  Click on "GET THE CODE HERE" and enter it into a post on your site.

You can grab the party button code in the FOOTER at Its So Very Cheri.  You can grab info from my post if it helps you with your post.

5. Then you follow other bloggers–(as many as you want) –leave each one of the blogs that you follow a comment letting them know you are following them and ask them to follow you back.

If you want to add the BLOG HOP to your own site you will get lots of new followers–(see rule #2)

…So do ya want to go Cruisin’?
I plan on HOPPING from BLOG to BLOG to follow everyone who follows me.

Every Wednesday I will rotate the Linky Follower Party Hop and my PIN tag party here at Its So Very Cheri"
