So, my question is, what is its purpose (I’ve added the box in the left-hand column)?
I used to think it was a way to follow new content on a blog, but that would be Google Reader (or something similar).
I started wondering about it because fellow blogger Marilyn is trying to reach 100 followers through Friend Connect so hopefully she will be allowed to give away a Go! Cutter on her blog. (By the way, you may want to stop over at Marilyn’s blog & if you enjoy your visit, sign up as a friend. Wouldn’t you love an extra chance at a Go! Cutter???)
Anyway, when I find a site I like, I rarely add my name as a follower. Instead, I follow them through Google Reader. Now I’m thinking it’s apples and oranges.
