I have decided I do not like the "follow" feature of Blogger.
If you are following me, you may want to add me to a feed reader (if you would still like to read my blog, of course), because I think I am going to delete the following gadget on my blog....unless Blogger gets on the following issues (no pun intended).
First, I somehow keep following myself. When I see that I have new followers I click on the picture to see who they are and so I can read their blog too, and the next thing I know it says I am following "Always a Northerner". Hello Google Friend Connect or whatever you are, I AM Always a Northerner, why would I want to follow myself!?
After clicking around for a while I am usually able to stop following, but it is a tedious process because well, it is ME, and the program doesn't understand what I am trying to do. I also can't remember how to un-follow myself, so now I am trying to click around again and it's not working. Ugh!
Another problem I have found with following blogs....posts often end up in my reader twice. Once for the subscription I initially added into Google Reader and then once for following. I have tried deleting the original subscription, but that doesnt' seem to work, because certain blogs are still showing up twice.
Anyone else having these problems? Any solutions?
ETA: I received some great tips on following, so hopefully I can work out the kinks and keep the gadget. If not though, people will still be able to follow me, I just won't be following you. I will, however, add you to my reader, so don't worry, I will still keep up with all your blogs!
