New Tools

I love new tools.  Give me a new RotoZip or Kreg Pocket Joiner and I'm jumping up and down with excitement.  When CG got a reciprocating saw for Christmas one year, I was the one who pulled it out of the box and used it first.  New computer tools scare me a bit, though.  I think the fact that I've nicknamed the hubs Computer Genius shows that I've abdicated all computer knowledge and responsibilities to him.

When word came out that Google might be doing away with Google Friend Connect, I tried to ignore it.  Maybe if I ignore it, it won't happen.  That head in the sand thinking is one of the things I lecture WD about.  Not good.  I've been seeing others in blogland switching to LinkyFollowers, and I've made the jump.
It turns out the jump wasn't so scary.  It's easy to sign up, and FREE, too.  It turns out that LinkyFollowers has a ton of features that GFC never did, like being able to split your favorite blogs into categories.  I now have separate categories for food blogs vs decor blogs, etc.  I'm joining in this Blog Hop started by Cheri for Linky Followers.  Hope you join in too.
