Blogger is Now even Cooler!
This is a new feature in Blogger in which you can subscribe to publicly become a follower of a blog, and others would also be your follower.
If usually we only put links to other bloggers’ blogs in ours, in this new feature, you can see the updates in the subscribed blogs in your Dashboard once you log in into your Blogger account. Now you don’t have to patiently click one by one on the links just to check whether they have put new entries in their blogs or not. The Dashboard tells everything!
Not only that, you can secretly be a loyal reader for a blog. This is most likely when you don’t want the author to know that you’ve subscribed to his/her blog. Isn’t it cool?
Besides that, you can put a gadget from which you can see all updates from the blogs that you've subscribed. For example, see the middle bar in this blog under the section named "I Read Theirs". Thing like that... Again, clicking will be lesser from now on!

Thanks and congratulations to As for being the first subscribed follower for this blog. I really appreciate it. Huhu~
So, my plan in making use of this new feature is to subscribe to all blogs that have been active since last few months to this blog; be it in giving comments or saying hello in the chatbox. I hope you’ll do the same to my blog also. It’s like building a network connection to all blogs you’ve linked in yours.
Apart from that, this is basically the thing that I would like to implement in the IIUM Bloggers’ Blog, but since it uses WordPress, which is far complex than Blogger, so I couldn’t manage to do it. Maybe I should consider to transfer the community blog to Blogger instead of WordPress. Is it possible people?
Note: I couldn't subscribe to some blogs for some reasons like error and undetectable feed. To those involved, please check your settings ok?
