I am resorting to putting a post about "followers".  I am at the end of my tether at keep losing my links as a follower to blogs.  I used to use Google but then due to problems I set up a Yahoo account and things are happening again ie I'd set myself up as a follower and everything seems OK and if I go back days later the link has gone.  This is OK in some respects as when I become a follower I also add people to my "blogs I like to watch" section on my own blog but it's not nice for example if someone has offered some candy and then I put myself as a follower and then disappear afterwards.  I'm not like that and I have come across so many friends by blog hopping and becoming a follower.

I have asked my son about this but he doesn't know much about blogs.  I was wondering if it was because I use Google Chrome rather than Internet Explorer so used Internet Explorer over the week-end to become a follower to blogs but hey presto the links are all gone ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I am just wondering if I'm not doing something right when becoming a follower and I hope on hope that someone on here will have an answer for me as it's frustrating me.

I'm sorry I'm no help on this one Kym. I use Firefox and IE and as far as I know have never lost a blog that I've elected to follow.I don't see what you can be doing wrong as you don't really get much in the ay of options when you are setting it up - just to follow publicly or not as far as I can remember. Is there anything in your reading list on your dashboard. I know you can 'manage' things on the button don the bottom. It might be worth a look to see if somethings amiss on that pagee. Hope you get it sorted. It must be very frustrating for you.

hi Kym,

personally, i use firefox, and haven't had any issues with blogs i follow. they all seem to appear in my dashboard, making it really easy to hop along from one to the next (and i'm a VERY active hoppah!). :) one thing i try to do when i click to follow a blog is to use the link at the top left corner of blogger (for those blogs who have it up there, and haven't disabled the bar). one click, and it just asks if you want to follow this blog publicly or privately. i find following from the gadget in the sidebar allows for too many options and issues. at least at the top it's universal, to whichever ID i'm logged into.

i hope that helps!
