Follow on Google Friend Connect without the widget

Hi all! New week starting off great! SO we're here with more awesome blogger tutorials, SEO advice(search engine optimization), handy-dandy blog tips, the scoop on easy HTML tutorials .. or for short: Technical Support, as everybody already knows it:)


The topic for today is: how to follow via GFC without the widget!

This tutorial is going to be easy, but there's a lot of times when you can't find someone's followers widget, even tough you'd want to follow. And at times even GFC for some reason is acting up and not let you see the widget. So without further ado.. I'll share with you another way to follow. You need to scroll up to the top of the page you want to follow and look for the navigation bar:


Then you see that "Follow" button? Hit that! And then you'll be directed to this pop-up window:


You need to make sure the first bullet is checked and then hit "follow" and you're pretty much done:) Easy, right? Now everybody can follow in peace without looking for that crazy widget:)

Oh and since we had an awesome giveaway last week, I might as well announce the winners:


That is Stacie and Diana. Congrats you galls!!


Now that's it for today! Check back to see what comes up next in Blogger tutorial section, SEO tips department or how we teach new HTML tricks & tips every day!

Hi there, fellow SITStah! Wow.. wish I had found your blog when I first started mine. Just reading through your first 6 tutorials and thinking I sure could have used that help when I started my blog in February instead of trying to figure it all out on my own! I'm your newest follower.

Have a great day!!

Great tips, I'll be reading more. I am here from a follow back. YOu might add in this tutorial how people can get to the GFC if there is not a bar at the top showing the "follow" txt and they also have NO Widget to join from. I've come accross many of those.
