51 And Falling…

Lately I have noticed that my Follower count has dropped from 55 to 51. I do know that someone actually wrote indicating that blogger wiped their account one day and they have been desperately trying to follow those blogs and got an error message when trying, so I know that one person is accounted for— but I am unsure of the rest.

When followers was the new thing, I wrote a few Tuesday's Tributes giving a brief summary of my Followers and what their blogs were all about. Here are the posts that I wrote:

At the time I stopped abound 30 followers and briefly after that Blogger changed the way they listed Followers. I have a widget on my side-bar which lists "What the Followers have to say" and shows a blog-roll of those that I know have followed me in the past. Please check to see if you are still following me if your blog is listed. If not, try following me again (unless you really don't want to follow me any more don't worry— I'll understand). Or, if you are a regular reader and want to give me an "atta-boy" you can follow me too. I am hoping to have another Tuesday's Tribute once I reach 60 followers so that you can get some publicity about your blog.

*waving* ...I think bloggers do come and go a bit ....I know that I sometimes slash and burn the blogs I follow when there are too many!

Does your list update? Because I am listed but it says my last post was 3 weeks ago!! I think not! LOL!

You may have more "followers" than you realize - not everyone has a Blogger blog, which pretty much eliminates their ability to "follow" you unless they create some sort of OpenID profile. Not everyone realizes they can that, or is willing to (what do I need ONE MORE internet account for??).

I'm a fine example - I have a self-hosted WordPress blog, and subscribe to your blog via an RSS feed.

I'm still following you - I think there have been technical issues ever since Google Friend Connect and Blogger merged the Follow Me widget. I have had to re-follow people I never un-followed but somehow dropped off their widget...but I see I'm still on yours! :)

*frowns* Hmmmm...I thought I had followed you, but I didn't appear in the list. Maybe I just added you to my Google reader instead and forgot to follow. Oh well, at any rate, I'm following you now. I have you in my blogroll too. I do enjoy your blog, even though I don't often comment. I need to try and do so more often because I know how much comments mean to me. :)

I know how you feel about the followers. I hate it when the number goes down.

I'm so confused about the whole follower thing. I subscribe to peeps in my reader but don't sign up to "follow" them on their blog. Is that the same thing?

I'd like to say that I don't care about my number of followers but one day, I lost 3 in my reader and then I was all worried that I said something overly offensive vs my normal level of just kind of offensive.

Joanie said...

Yup. I'm following. I've been pre-occupied somewhat this summer and have been "skimming" posts and not commenting as often as I should but I'm here!

Blogger hates me some days. It's all I can do to post. For some reason, I show that I "want to" follow you, but you don't show up on either my page, or yours. I'll try again. Oh, and Friday, I'm back. I promise. I have no idea where last Friday went...

Following, reading and loving you :)

When I started my blog, it was with the intent of simply documenting my little guy's life. Suddenly, followers became important. I've now realized, with my small 11-people following, that it takes time. I think I may be crushed, though, if I started LOSING followers.

Deb said...

i didn't like it when they messed with the followers widget. i try not to pay too much attention to the numbers, anyway. in fact, i am entertaining the idea of ditching the followers thing all together.

Well, I can tell you that when I pulled my blog offline a few months ago, my icon would have disappeared from your blog.

When I reopened the blog a month ago I put it into a new url so nobody that followed me before is still following me. So I think we've lost each other off our follower lists.

Mike said...

The whole follower thing really doesn't matter, as long as you are happy with what you write, I like commenting better than my own posts!

SweetPeaSurry said...

I'm still following!!! I hope it gets resolved though!

Sprite's Keeper said...

I'm kind of glad I don't know how many are following me. That would stress me out completely'

Thanks for stopping by my RTT! I'm back to an odd number, so if you want to help a sista OUT! *wink*

I will be a new follower. :)
