And So We All Went Missing

yesterday's post for more info.

I just spent a looooong time trying to figure out why Followers weren't showing up at my new blog.

Not that I expected a lot of them, yet - since I did not even tell anyone it existed until yesterday! - but I knew I was at least following myself... and when I first put the Followers gadget in place, I showed up. Now I don't. Not yesterday, and not today.

Then I went back to this blog and found that there was no one here, either. Then I went to Soaring Through the World, and the world was empty. Then I went looking for the people who used to hang around, and thankfully I find them all at home each at their own place; but no one seems to have any Followers any more.

Do you all feel as lost as I do?
(It seems from the Blogger Help forum that a lot of people are having the same problem. But no Explanation.)

compare Sunday and Monday posts. (We did not get lost.)

Hi. I haven't been on blogger for quite some time but I should be updating again semi-regularly and checking in on my favourite blogs again as well. Anyway, I'll definitely check out your new photo blog. Bye for now!

Hi Pan... Glad to see you - and quite funny that you should show up on this of all posts! (LOL) I was actually thinking about you just the other day, wondering if maybe I should try leaving a message on your last post... but didn't get round to it. Maybe Blogger has added a secret telepathy widget?

At least they managed to restore the Followers widget which now seems to be working again on all my blogs, including the new one. :)

I know how you feel.

I'm noticing less and less "hits" and comments to my posts. I feel as though my writing is no longer of interest. But, the other day, I thought I heard there are over 200,000,000 blogs on the www. I know my rankings on technorati, which were never anything to write home about, have slipped. a concerted effort has to be made to maintain and publicize your blog and it is alot of work. i continue to write but cannot take the time to do the other stuff.

California Girl... My complaints yesterday were really about a technical problem - Followers weren't visible in their widget, neither on my own blogs nor on other people's that I visited... They're back today - after a lot of nagging from a lot of frustrated Blogger users at the Help forum over at least two days of technical problems. I was mostly irritated that I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out what *I* (or my own computer) was doing wrong - when it really wasn't me at all. The post was not meant to be a complaint about lack of interest from the readers/follwers that I have; only that they had suddenly all gone "invisible"! ;)

I too noticed that all the followers had disappeared but couldn't be bothered doing anything about it and now, as you say, they've all come back. That's Blogger for you!
