Thanks to Bev for this little bit of news, which she saw on Fleur's blog. So.... just in case Google decides to remove their Followers widget, I have installed one from Linky.
Please would my existing followers join my blog via the Linky Followers widget too, as I would dearly like to keep in touch in case the Google one goes. Any newbies, please follow both at this stage... Thanks.
As a precaution you may want to install the Linky Followers widget yourself. Here is the link http://www.linkyfollowers.com/
