FOLLOW IT! Blogger has Changed!

 ALWAYS AD-FREE

Blogger has eliminated their "Join by email" option as of July 1, 2021. Please take some time to rejoin my blogs via email from 

FOLLOW IT! 

over in the right hand column. It is easy to sign up...just click the button and follow the easy instructions. 

You don't have to opt-out of other services. But, you have the options of only receiving blogs/sites that you choose to hear from.

I've never asked before---but, so many bloggers on google/blogger/blogspot are loosing all their followers. Please make sure you support your favorite bloggers, or the blogworld will change forever.

I've always tried to be faceless behind my blogs---but I'm a real granny, a retired artist, collector of antiques, and odd stuff and I play with dolls!

Barbieoldnewgreenredo and my other blog SomethingOldNewGreenRedo 

never have ads or newsletters. I work very hard for content suitable for any age. I never send additional emails about the blog or use any of your information in any way, except to ask you this one time to please join via the new widget

FOLLOW IT
in the upper right column.

  4. Oh Sandi, you are gorgeous!!! And yes you are right. Blogger has lost quite a number of its doll blogs, especially considering how many were around when I first put mine up. It's bad enough the "upload photos" is more complicated, but the elimination of the "follow by email" option is annoying. I have no idea who had signed up and where or how to replace it. I'm so busy trying to eek out content, the least Google can to is to keep up the technical stuff. In any case I'm here and always will be for you. Big hugs.

    1. Thanks so much April, 'Follow It' is quite easy---pretty much why I used it. Just say you are a publisher and then you can add as a photo in your widgets, the link with their arrow...does it all. All you have to do is email. So far I haven't gotten any garbage for signing up---as I actually subscribed to my own blogs to check and see if they are posting properly. YES>..content is soooooo important, unless no one sees it.Yikes. Hugs, and can't wait for your next post! Sandi

  6. I finally got down to this Archived Post Sandi and I'm so glad to see your Smiling Face being Shared in this Post. I keep my fav Blogs on my Sidebar so that I always can see when they post something new or quit Blogging and have to then just fall away/off if they've decided they're not doing this anymore. So many Bloggers moved on to something else, for a while, before Pandemic, I was concerned Blogging might die out, glad it did not and had a resurgence when everyone was Home more in Lockdown and needing Positive Outlets to sustain them thru these turbulent and scary times we're now in. As for Blog Content, I try to be eclectic since I never began my Blog as a Themed one and I probably wouldn't have as much to write about and share if I had to keep it a certain predictable Topic. It seems Themed Blogs do very well tho' and cultivate their very specific Audience where the main Topic attracts a great many Followers. I've not Lost Followers much during the 12 Years, but the growing of numbers has been slower than it used to be during Blogging heyday Years ago. I seem to get a rotation of people who I know show up regularly because they comment regularly and so they're not as Anonymous as those who just come for a Silent Visit and are more spectator oriented that participation oriented within this Community. I Lurk at some Blogs and rarely comment and have become very interactive with others, in so many ways Blogging is like Real Life since there is a Real Person behind each Blog.

    1. Well, we hope there is a real person...behind each blog. I keep hoping that more people will connect, but then, they are connected apparently just to their screens. I comment when I have something to say---or just to let the poster know their stuff was seen and read. Some people put out so much effort---without the ads...I try and cultivate those, and skip all the Amazon schlock---and this is what I wore..and here is all the sources you can get it from. Sigh. Frankly the last time I bought something because someone said to was a set of Encyclopedias for our first BABY...yikes what a learning experience. Basically you couldn't sell me anything unless I wanted it before, in the first place. Lurking is allowed---when you are just nosy---too. Hope all is well, and I know there is a real person behind your blog---there would have to be...! Hugs, Sandi
