Bloglovin...........

Hiya all...hope you are having a great weekend and keeping warm if you have snow where you are.

I have just signed up to bloglovin, I was not going to do this as from what I understand it's only Google Reader going on the 1st July and should not affect our dashboards or followers. I have never used Google reader, always have followed everyone from my dashboard. But as their are so many different things being said I have signed up just in case, a kind of backup. Also loved the sound of making up folders to sort blogs into, but at the moment I can not see how to do this...can anyone help. Also have you done the bit about claim your blog? When I added my follow me on bloglovin button, it already says 65 followers, is this how many of my followers that have already joined bloglovin and transferred over all their blogs they follow...hope this all makes sense, just trying to get my head around it all lol..
