Well, the Blogger Followers plot possibly thickens! I bet a few of you have noticed a drop in your followers, over the past few days in particular. I don't keep a close watch on my follower numbers but did suddenly realise there's been a drop this morning. At the same time, the penny dropped that I seemed to be missing a few new posts by bloggers who I follow. One in particular was SaRn - and I've been an avid follower of my special mate (aka the Playground Hooch Queen) for years and years.
So, I hopped over to Sarn's and clicked on the 'add me as a follower' button and it then asked for my Google log-in ID (I've always used a Google ID right from the start) and, when I entered that, I showed up as following Sarn. Now, I'm not too sure if I was still actually a follower just hidden back in the numbers - I should have checked that out first. I did this with a few other blogs during the day but didn't think to check if I was a follower still before adding myself - if that makes sense!
But, later on, a different blog that I'm convinced I was also following wasn't showing up on my dashboard so I went to re-add myself as a follower and it took me through the route to become a new follower - ending with the message 'you are now following X'. So that was a different result - which just muddied the waters all the more.
So, was I still following Sarn and those others in any case or not? All I can do is to watch a selection of blogs very closely over the coming days. I suspect that I've been whining to myself about being knocked off some follower lists by blogger when I was there all along. But, then this last instance popped up which threw me!
All I can say is, if you think I've disappeared from your followers please let me know and I'll add myself back in. But I thought this shouldn't happen if you used a Google account in any case? Don'tcha just love Blogger?! :(
