It appears that from the 11th January that you will not be able to follow my blog unless you have a goggle account. This is due to some changes at google. The official announcement you can read here.
The most important section of this is:
We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
I really don't want to lose any of you and therefore please do open up a google account and re-follow me. Your comments and encouragement mean a lot to me and I would miss you.
Have a good day x
