ARE YOU HAVING PROBLEMS FOLLOWING MY SITE?

Hi!  I have been informed by one of my best blogging buddies that he is having an issue following me.  He clicks the “follow” button and it will follow me, but for some reason it doesn’t last, if you will.  He has to repeatedly click to follow me when he comes to my site.  I have actually encountered this myself on some sites and do not know why.  He was one of my first followers and was not having this issue until recently.

I am concerned now that something is wrong with my site, so I ask you, have you or are you having an issue with “following” me?  Once you “follow” me, does it, for whatever reason, “unfollow” me and you have to click “follow” again the next time you come to visit?  Or do you know why this is happening?

Please let me so I can follow-up with WordPress if this is an issue with my site.  Thank you for your feedback, I sincerely appreciate it.

followThanks,
Deb

  2. I have had no problem with your site but experienced a similar problem recently; I would follow a site and then when I visit their blog it would look like I have not followed them. can be a technical glitch. hope it is fixed

    • I’m glad you aren’t having any issues and thanks for that input…I’ve encountered that sometimes too…by the way right before I went to sleep last night I read your Plain Bread post…and boy did those breads look amazingly delicious!! Sure wish I was your neighbor!! I’m sorry I didn’t leave a comment I was just so tired, I was going to come back tonight to remark!! You, my friend, are becoming quite the bread baker!!! 🙂

    • well you are right – dessert spoon is non-american; 1 dessert spoon is 0.8 table spoon. mililiters (ml) should be easy to convert to cups using a measuring cup or the internet (1 liter = 1,000 mls). hope you will have time and enjoy your loaf 🙂 best

    • Oh ya my measuring cup is in both ounces and Mls…that never occurred to me…ha see I just gave myself away…not big in the cooking department…but I do love to bake!! 🙂

  6. Deb, I think that WP had an update. I’ve been reading that some blogs were affected.

  7. I try to read posts through email, and I don’t seem to be having any issues. The emails are coming through okay, as far as I know. Perhaps it is something related to the WP Reader itself?

  12. I haven’t had a problem with your site but I have noticed some of my most faithful followers “dropped off” without reason — when I reported it, no one responded, so I don’t know if they took it seriously.

  13. Deb!
    I read all these 40 odd comments, I was happy not only because of the quick response but because of the fan following. You seem to be a Star in the making.
    So, I have followed you again and pray again that wordpress and you shall look back at me.
    Instead of following each other why can’t we go together? Ha Ha
    Have a nice laugh again.
    One more problem has occured when I posted last time, I went and saw my post was not appearing in the Reader even yesterday it did not appear in the Reader. This is strange again, but I asked the one who first liked that post he is your follower also ‘Yinglan’ he told me that my post has appeared in the Reader, then I thanked HIM.

    makes us say OMG!

    • I Posted one more post of the same topic and converted the subject into a Quote from the Haiku published yesterday. I could not see my Post in the Reader but I am getting the likes from fellow bloggers, it means that it is not appearing to me only.
      Tell me how to register this complaint.
      Deb!
      As Rob said I first type my subject on the Word, only if they are long and thoughtful comments which I would be pondering for hours and days. All my articles I write it on the word days back, maybe they take days to complete sometimes, doing all the corrections and deletions and additions. Finally I Copy and Paste it on the Post and Publish.
      I think you can do that way, as it saves time and gives you time to think over the matter. Is that OK.
      Hugs!

    • I never thought of using Word until he told me about it last night! If you go to the bottom of your “dashboard” page way down at the end you will see “thank you for creating with WordPress * Support * Forums* learn WordPress – Tutorials & Walkthroughs” click the “support” word and then it will bring you to another page, in the “search” bar type in how to contact wordpress and up should come some info on how to contact them. Hope this helps!
      How frustrating…perhaps you have Unfollowed yourself as well…that happened to me before and I could not see my post in the Reader because somehow I was no longer following me…check that out too!
      Good luck,
      Deb!

    • Thanks for this. Yes it is showing that I have to Follow my Blog. I don’t know when I followed myself, I think when I started my blog a little while after. I was appearing in my own community and I was feeling good about it.
      But that is necessary as per your opinion, then only it appears in the Reader is it.
      Oh! We have to Follow our own selves, this is amazing.
      Thanks I shall check.

    • Oh good to know, thank you. I don’t know what he has for a computer. I know he has been following for almost a year now without issue, until now…hmmm. One response said there was a WordPress update recently and it affected some sites…perhaps that is the issue. Thanks for responding!! 🙂

      Ya one of my blogger friends said WordPress recently did an update which affected a lot of sites…perhaps that’s what happened.

    • Yes, Roxie is a sarcastic little ball of fur, but it’s usually aimed at me and ZuZu. She is trying very hard to ingratiate herself to bloggers who will become her allies in the bid to get a book of her own.
      I really don’t keep track of my numbers, but I do make sure I get back to anyone who visits. I saw that comment on your blog and have become conscious of my followers changing and the numbers have been rising and dropping almost immediately in the last few days. Not sure what that’s all about.

    • Oh Rosie definitely has a book in het, that was such a fun read from her perspective. I would read her book. Hmmm that’s interesting about your numbers, wonder what that is about.

    • Not sure. Numbers went down last night, up this morning, but no one new came on when I checked comments.How’s your site doing?
      There are some other Roxie D. posts under Roxie aka The other Cat. I like the Letter of Apology to a pastor the best. Clare
