So I fire up the old computer this morning, log in to my blogger account, and find that I’ve lost almost half of my followers. First reaction: “Oh no, what have I done to make all these people so mad at me?!” Second reaction: maybe there’s something else going on…
That something else was confirmed when I checked my email and found a few messages from people wondering the same thing.
Now, thanks to Sarah and Jesse, I know what happened.
Turns out Blogger had a few problems with the Follower widget and is in the process of trying to fix them. Nothing more than that. Mystery solved.
This whole thing has gotten me thinking, though. About that first reaction. I’m the sort of person who automatically thinks that when something goes wrong, it’s my fault.
Gonna have to work on that one.
