I decided to add the Linky followers widget. Maybe that is how people follow blogs. They don't use email or readers, I thought.
Then I thought, I am going to see what happens if someone wants to follow my blog. I click on the follow through email gadget. I type in one of my email addresses and submit. I get a validate subscription email with a link. I click on that and get a successful subscription message. So I am thinking I should have at least 1 follower now.
I go to my blogger overview page to see if it updated my 1 follower and lo and behold, zero still. What is going on? Maybe I do have followers but they aren't showing up. I am completely confused.
Usually when I have a problem or a question I google it. Why aren't my followers showing up in blogger, I type. Tons and tons of people with the same problem show up. I click on the first one and it redirects me to some google group with no question that I just clicked on. OK. So, I try another one. Same thing. So in this group, I type in the same question. Finally, the question pops up. But no one gets an answer. It is like a mystery that no one know the answer to. Someone suggests deleting all unread posts through google reader. I follow a lot of blogs and have over 800 unread posts. I am not about to delete them all just in case it solves this problem. Most people said that it didn't help. Other than that, I haven't found any answers.
I am completely desperate at this point. If anyone that comes across my blog has any answers to this problem or has tried to follow my blog without success. Please comment to help. I would really appreciate any advice. Thank you so much.
PS Today is my last day at work before my vacation. 9 days off. I plan on posting a lot of projects and maybe even a room reveal. So I really hope I can fix this problem. I don't want anyone to miss out on all my fun posts I have planned.
