1. I don't believe GFC brings much traffic to my blog
Yup! There's the truth. Now I'm not saying I don't get any views from followers that follow through GFC, BUT I do feel (and according to my stats) the majority of my page views come from Facebook, Bloglovin, Feedspot, Google search, and Twitter. I personally do not believe GFC brings my pageviews, I may have alot of followers through GFC, but I don't think many people that follow with GFC, are followers that re-visit blogs often.
2. It's just a number
I'm going to be honest and say the only reason I have had the GFC on my sidebar the past while is because I like the number. It's cool seeing such a large number of followers, but if the majority of people that are following me with GFC are not people I am seeing returning, then why should I keep it?? THERE IS NO REASON. Since using Bloglovin I have been noticing new followers that are RETURNING, and noticing my pageviews going up some since offering bloglovin as a way to follow my blog.
3. I hope to move to wordpress someday in the future
I have been wanting to move to wordpress for sometime, and someday I hope to move to wordpress. For people that don't know, wordpress does not offer GFC, GFC is only allowed for Blogger users (which I am). So for me to keep offering GFC as a way for people to follow my blog, and getting new followers through GFC makes no sense if once I move to wordpress they will all be lost.
What if you're someone that follows me with GFC?
Don't worry! If you are someone that does still use GFC and you follow me with GFC, then you will still get my blog updates in your feed, I just will no longer be advertsing GFC on my sidebar in the hopes that people will follow me other ways.
