Hey! Where'd Everybody Go???

Today there was a gasp heard throughout Blogger-world. People were losing followers as fast as my children can consume chocolate. Some thought it was just them. But really, did we all offend so much so quickly? dear friend Lolli explains what happened and how we can fix it:

I'm sure that most of not all of you are aware by now that blogger had a few problems today. I was saddened to find that within an hour this afternoon, I had lost 19 of my followers. After a little research, I discovered that bloggers everywhere were having the same problem. So here is my attempt to pass on the info on how to resolve the situation. Apparently, we have not lost followers per se, but some of our followers are now listed as "anonymous" instead of "public". I checked my own following list and in fact was anonymously following all of my favorite blogs. I was able to fix my end of the problem by switching "anonymous" to "public" (I first went to my dashboard, scrolled down to the blogs I'm following, and clicked the "manage" button).

So if you haven't already checked, go to your dashboard and see if you have been switched to anonymous.....And if you are not already following me, why don't you go ahead and do it now! It IS National Follow Me Month, after all. :)

Thank you Lolli! Go follow her and if you're not, follow me too!!!

Thanks for the explanation. I wondered why they all picked the same day or two to leave. ;)
