I will admit I was somewhat apprehensive about switching from Blogger
to Wordpress. After many, many internet searches I found the directions
for transferring Google Friends Connect(GFC) from Blogger to WP. These
work you can ask Jen at @jaeldesignsinc

1)When you log into GFC, your url will have an ID # at the end, copy this number
2) You need to getting into the settings tab of your current GFC profile Here's how
3)Type the following url into your browser
http://www.google.com/friendconnect/admin/site/settings?id=paste id # here
4)In settings; Go to the advanced tab----->alternate domains box
----->type in Wordpress domain name or if using Dreamhost(type in
this domain as well) ---->Save settings
4)Now I am not sure if this is necessary but I installed the GFC Integration plug in(there is a highlighted portion within the plug in text that says GFC admin page I pasted my ID# in site ID field.) go to bottom of page --->update options
5)I also installed the GFC widget plug in
5)Next I went into Appearance ---> widgets---> and dragged the
GFC widget to my designated sidebar and pasted my ID# into the GFC Site
ID field--->Save

I did not change any of the colors(too afraid to mess with success)!

Did this actually bring the feed or was it just the pictures of the followers that came over?
I am certain it brings the feed because I can see the new followers. From Google Friend Connect you can also copy and paste the code for your new site. In Appearances, add a text widget and copy and past the new code. This works as well. I hope this helps.

Sorry for the delay.
