Dropped 'Followers' Glitch












I have seen this email and blog today in many places, so if you think people have 'quite' you (Broke Back Mountain referrence)...then think twice, cause we luv u's honey!













5 Star Foodie sent this to me, so I thought I would post it to help for those out there who did not have a clue as why your numbers dropped off...

Several of my foodie friends contacted me today, saying that I no longer follow their blog. I also noticed quite a few followers have been dropped from my blog as well. It is a glitch in Blogger due to their releasing a new feature. They, without users permission, changed the users from “Public” to “Anonymous”. The “Follow Blog” widget only lists the users that are Public therefore counts of followers have dropped.

Here’s how to fix your own subscriptions. In Dashboard find a button ‘Manage’, click on that and then change any of your subscriptions that say “Anonymous” back to “Public”. Blogger will NOT fix this for you automatically so you have to do it yourselves.

I hope you will find this information useful!

Isn't this the wackiest thing? You haven't shown up yet on my list but maybe it takes a while. I have no idea.

One thing I saw is that on your dashboard go to the bottom, and click on manage, that will take you to a page of all the people you follow and then you click 'public', I follow 74 so I missed a few, but now should be on there :)

Well maybe that is the problem and not because of my post/review of the adult shop. I check all mine are still public. Hopefully I 'll get my two lost friends, made me sad :(.
