You have probably already read the BIG NEWS and you are back to learn more about what you can do with this cool new tool so let’s get started.

If you haven’t signed up yet– you can find the new follower tool up towards the top of my right side by.

Just click on the link Get your own Linky Followers, sign up, then come back and I will show you more features.

I follow everyone that follows me.


When in your dashboard you will see something like this (but with your info):




“Last Posted Date”

Click here to update. Help

Got something to say?

Idea? Suggestion? Criticism? I’m listening…

FIRST BOX--Click on each of those links to learn more about what they do.  The BLOG DIRECTORY shows people who have already signed up following a blog through linky tools–so you can find lots of new blogs to follow–COOL!!!   RIGHT!!! 

SECOND BOX–LAST POSTED DATE–you can go in and add your post title and the date and update so people know when you have posted something new.


You will see some options:



BLOGS YOU FOLLOW–obvious right !!  but in that dashboard you will find the BLOG READER–be sure to click that.  You can read posts from your favorite Bloggers.

When you FOLLOW a blog there are options –If you are wanting to check a blog like ITS SO VERY CHERI–EVERY DAY you have that option.  SUPER COOL!!!


YOUR FOLLOWERS–obvious–the ones that are following you.


YOUR PRIVATE BLOG ROLL–“Your Private Blogroll” is simply your personal collection of blogs you want to follow that do not have a Linky Follower account (so you can’t follow them using the normal Linky Follower widget).


MANAGE PROFILE & BLOGS–when you click on that you have 2 options–

1… Manage Your Profile and Account–that is where you want to add your info about your blog so people have the info they need about your site.

2…MANAGE YOUR BLOGS–a few really cool options

click on the + sign (edit)

You can choose the order of your thumbnails…RANDOM–OLDEST TO NEWEST–or–NEWEST TO OLDEST

(I picked Newest to Oldest so I can see the newest followers without having to scroll to the end)

You can pick to show a FEATURED BLOGGER–you can pick Random and it will randomly pick someone to feature OR you can pick a specific blogger to feature.

(I picked Random so I didn’t have to go change it all of the time.)

Leave me a comment that you are SUPER COOL because you got the new Linky Follower tool–AND that you are following ITS SO VERY CHERI and I will follow you too.

Hi Cheri! I’m absolutely super-cool! I have the widget up on my sidebar, and so happy there’s another option for us “lowly users”. 🙂 I already follow you by email, but will add you to my linkyfollower as well!
