Am I Following You? :) - More blogger issues

Just a quick post from me - out of frustration and interest.............

Recently I have been very honoured to have several new followers, and I always follow back when I can find a link.  This is usually very easy if you have left a wee comment. :)

I was checking through my dashboard last week, and quite a few blogs were missing from my list, so I went back to check, clicked the 'Follow' buttons again (on the top toolbar), and it appears as though it just doesnt work.  :(  Even after several tries, the pop up never says 'You are already following', it just asks me to 'Follow'.  I also dont appear in the followers box.

I have tried to find out whats wrong, but blogger have now deleted all their archives (well played!) when they migrated over to a new forum.  There seems to be no solution, but I am not alone.

If it appears I havent been over to visit, please leave me a comment below and I will make a list, and see if I can find a way around it.  :)

Have a great day,

Hi Alison,
Yes, you are still appearing in my follower's list - though Blogger is also continuing to give me probs and white screens like Theresa is getting above...I am scared to go the new interface as well, but I know my time will come soon :( Hope you get your following probs sorted out, Have a good day, Hugs, Teresa x

yep i am having this too.some blogs i follow are dissapearing from my dashboard only to reappear weeks later with about 20 posts showing one after the other.no idea why it happens as i hate missing visiting people but someone did say it was because i followed that many and that blogger has a limit to how many it can show in your dashboard but i can`t find anything that says this is true.

xx coops xx

I have the same problem too Alison , Like coops, I am having to catch up on blog posts as they are not appearing for days then just turn up at random. it is frustrating especially when people are kind enough to comment on mine then I find that they have been making lots of lovely creations that I knew nothing about.
Hugs Elaine

It's blogger, happened here too, by the way, I've been missing but want to say I love the baskets you have been posting, they are beyond fantastic!!!!

I've had to give up with the Google Reader as I can't seem to control who I am following & who I am not so that's no longer reliable. I've got the new interface & after all my experimenting last year I know that I'll stay with Blogger as, despite his faults, I find him more versatile than other platforms UNLESS one starts to shell out money for upgrades. I've had to switch to RSS Feeds to keep up with posts but I know that isn't an option for some. I'm very confused about the Google+ bit & Tweeting has me baffled too.

Hi Alison, it all seems to be a bit hit and miss with blogger, white screens, unavailable comments etc, but we do seem to get there in the end with our posts and blogging, just somewhat less relaxed than we should be! heidi x

Katina said...

I'm having similar problems Alison. Also, when I go on my own blog all my followers keep disappearing!

I still haven't changed to the updated blogger, wonder if I'll have any problems when I do... perhaps I'll be brave tomorrow and update it, seen as I'll have to soon anyway! Hope blogger sorts everything out soon, must be so frustrating for you. Hugs, Lisa x

Hi hun, sorry to hear that blogger is giving you issues, it will never show me who I am following so I have started making a little book of blog addresses, I haven't had the issue that you are with it refusing to follow people (yet lol) but I am sure that it's probably annoying many people with the same issue, hope you manage to get it figured out

Hi Alison, I'm convinced most of my followers must think I'm the rudest person in creation as I don't have a very reliable dashboard at all. I get blogs dropping away for weeks, then suddenly re-appearing, then disappearing and it all starts over again!

I tend now just to reply to people who are leaving me comments - until their blogs re-appear for me then I go and apologise for not having visited for ages.

Not very pro-active I know and I did feel bad to begin with that I miss people, but I just don't have time to sit at the computer for a couple hours solid every night. I'm pretty sure people understand as I see following problems all over the place.

No idea how to fix it, barely understand blogger as it is! And I refuse to go on Facebook or Twitter - I want some form of real-life life!! Arrgh, does make me sound like a boring old fart!!! Probably does, and I am!

Ooh, now you say it, I have notched I have lost a couple of followers recently, so maybe it's blogger. I've tried to work out how you un follow someone, but I just can't see a button for that, there are a few I'd like to bin lol! Not you though!
