Blogger Help

Forgive my misleading post title

and

NO

I don’t have any answers.

I need your help-

#1.  I have lost my Followers box, which may or may not be God’s lesson

in humility,

HOWEVER,

has this happened to anyone else?

#2.  I have been trying to back-up my blog,

but my blogger taskbar has disappeared, and I can’t log on to my dashboard

to do anything about that.


Any suggestions???

How can I back-up my content if I can’t log on to blogger?

(I post through Windows Live Writer)

Same thing has happened to me since yesterday.

Blogger must be having some issues again. I know Sheila at Note Songs lost her followers, too. I don't have any answers though, but you aren't alone. I sure hope they get this fixed.

Blogger is having some issues. Try to be patient for them to get it back before you change anything.

Same here! Sometimes I think we take blogger for granted, it has a huge job keeping up with all us! LOL! Hopefully things will be back on track soon!

Laura, go to buzzblogger.com which is the blog that reports issues going on. I looked and did not see anything reported about the followers issue. You should go to that site and let them know.

Just realized that I've lost mine also!!!

Hi Laura, for about the past 6 weeks I have had issues with seeing my followers (I know, keeps you humble!). Sometimes they appear, but mostly they don't! I can see yours right now (9:13am, Friday, May 28). Oddly, when I posted the problem, everyone said they could see my followers, but I couldn't. What in the world? I had grown accustomed to it - crazy! Linda

oops, I mean, Friday, May 27. Linda

Hi Laura. I can't see your followers and I can't see mine either. In fact, I've noticed that I can't see anyone's. I'm not sure about your other problem, I know a lot of people are having commenting issues, but I've figured out that when you log in to blogger and uncheck the box that says "stay logged in" everything is find :)

i've had the same followers issue since yesterday. i found this thread in the blogger help section:
http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/blogger/thread?tid=2b786561a34b3396&hl=en

you can give them your blog info - hopefully they will resolve the issue soon!!

ps - i am still showing up as a follower of yours from my end!

Same here girl friend! Also for days I could not leave comments or follow any new blogs, I unchecked the little box that keeps you logged in and it fixed that problem, but now my followers are MIA.

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

Patience! I was unable to post on Blogger for a week; it all came back to me a couple of days ago. It's that darned Blogger!!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

My followers have disappeared also. :(

trash talk said...

I'm late commenting, but I do see your follower widget on my screen. Hopefully the issue has been resolved. Blogger has definitely been having it's own senior moments as of late!

I'm not able to see the follower widget right now for you. I'm still following from my end.

I have had all kinds of problems with blogger lately. I really do wish they had better contact info.

Claudia said...

The problem with the followers box happens every once in a while on Blogger. It will come back. Trust me. I've lost mine at least 10 times over 3 years, and every time it has come back.

Debra@Common Ground said...

Can't see yours or mine!!

June said...

Hi Laura,
I don't have any answers, but wanted to read your comments thus far to see if they did. I don't have my followers on my sidebar any more so I can't tell about mine, but I was curious to know if some of bloggers problems stem from the awful storms around the country. It makes you wonder where some of their techs might live. I think sometimes I take this wonderful Blogger for granted!
sending hugs...

Darla said...

Mine disappears from time to time, it always seems to pop back up....don't stress yourself over it.

Helen said...

I can see your followers ... when I use Google Chrome I see my followers, not always the case with Internet Explorer.

Helen said...

I had to use my name and URL in 'select profile' to leave my last comment.

Tee said...

Hey Laura, I just read something this morning that sounds like it might relate to that. Something to do with whether or not you access from blogspot.com(?) I read it here http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2011/05/blog-owners-unable-to-login-to-blogger_27.html. I can't see anyone's followers but I do have a navbar. Haven't tried to sign in from there today, though.

Victoria said...

My widget is gone also but I'm sure they'll fix it:)

Marguerite said...

This is happening all around the blogosphere. Your followers gadget will come back, sooner or later. As for not being able to sign in, try using a different browser than usual. This usually fixes that problem. Hang in there, and have a happy holiday!

Beth in NC said...

Interesting. I was just visiting another friend's blog and I noticed her box was invisible. I wonder if blogger is having a hiccup. I pray it will all get worked out swiftly.

Lea also known as "CiCi" said...

I have seen several "missing followers" on blogs I've read today. I know nothing about Live Writer but hopefully it will work itself out. Oh, but what frustration in the meantime!

LDH said...

Lost my follower Box too... just waiting it out.

NanaDiana said...

Looks like it might be fixed now-your followers are showing up for me! This is gonna get ugly if Blogger keeps letting us down! Hugs- Diana

Pondside said...

This happened to me too - and then the followers box was mysteriously returned - as I see, was yours.
It's a mystery.

Dayle said...

I'm always "losing" my Followers box, but it is usually exclusive to my desktop computer. When I log in on my laptop--voila!--it's there. I think that may have something to do with computer "stuff", but I have heard other bloggers mention some issues this week. I've not had those, but one never knows what might happen tomorrow.

Rita said...

It looks like everyone is having issues! I haven't even been able to get anything on my computer, so I am thankful to have this back, as I am thankful to all of our military for the freedom to be able to get on!

Deb said...

it is crazy isn't it....I can comment now that I don't ck the stay signed in box...hope your having fun up here in big D

Marguerite said...

Hope you've solved the problem, by now. If not, try typing your blog's URL into the Google search bar and go to your blog that way, and your followers will show up. You can also sign into Blogger there, too. It's all so weird! lol

cityfarmer said...

I've struggled with this vanity issue too for weeks now.
Your followers do, however show up on my page!

This is common to blogland right now, not just you ...
chin up dear ... you're back!

Lisa said...

I lost mine too 4 days ago and couldn't comment either but today? I got everything back..it just magically appeared back on my dashboard! Must be a goofy blogger thing since their big crash last week..

Cheri said...

I've been having the same problem with my followers, but today they came back!!! I don't know if I "helped" that or not. I was reading on blogger HELP and some were saying to delete your history and your cookies. I did that and sure enough when I went to my blog my followers were back!!! Could have been coincidence but you might try it. I still can't log in with my google account to leave comments but I can log in with my name and URL. Blogger has been having issues since about the 24th of May and many are having similar problems. They are "supposed" to be working on it. I don't use the writer thing you mentioned. Good luck!

What browser do you
use, Laura? I couldn't
log in via Chrome for
a week. I googled
around today and finally
figured out what to do.
If you are on Chrome,
e-mail me and I will
tell you what I did!
