I'm so mad! ME and many many of you are having issues with our dashboard not working right! It doesn't show all of the blogs we follow all the time. We can't see All of our followers all the time. It's Craziness!!
And on top of that At some point Google is getting rid of Friend connect ( the button we join blogs with) for non Blogger users. What that means is we can lose follower or maybe not the info on this is sketchy at best! But you can join Google + and start from scratch, It not clear yet if there is a way help import followers( probably not) and i'm not holding my breath!
I'm sick of the issue so instead of complaining and nothing getting fixed. I started researching to fix it! I wish it was a one step fixes all but its not. If you have a better option to what I've found please let me know!
First is I went to Bloglines as my new Blog Reader. I tried Blog loving and others But I like this one best! I don't need bells or whistle! I just want to read all the blogs I follow in one place with out issue. Problem with this is I wont count as a Follower.I don't have to join you to follow you. The fix to this is I still join with the friend connect join button(until they get rid of it or whatever the plan is). But I put everyone in my Bloglines Reader.
Second is they I put many ways to join/follow my blog for my Reads. From google's friends connect to bloglovin. This way no matter what happens You my reader have options to follow me. If there is a way to join that I do not have a link to, Please let me know I will put it up.
Third the number of followers I know a lot of you love the total number and I have not found a fix with that because there are So many way to follow ones blog. But you Can have your number if your using google friend connect, google +, Bloglovin and Networkedblog. Then add them up! But your still missing anyone using other readers. This doesn't bother me, Because as long as your Reading, I'm happy the number just isn't important.You guys still amaze me that you find me interesting enough to follow me. Thank You!
I hope I covered everything if not just ask. If I left anything out Please let me know that too!
For Anyone that I might have neglected while I was having issue viewing blogs I follow, I'm sorry !
