I don't fully understand what's being done that my follower's list has been taking such a big hit, but yesterday I lost 31 more followers after losing a few more the previous month. I understand everyone must have a Google account to be able to join the follower's list, but I find it difficult to understand why so many of my followers are being removed in the first place. Not long ago my list was nearing 450 followers, but today it's down to 408.
Now I've learned that followed blogs are being removed from our reading lists too, so if you've been a follower of mine and have been removed from my list, or my blog has been removed from your reading list, you can alternately subscribe to my blog via email or Bloglovin. Both links are on my sidebar. I would even suggest you try following me again if you have a Google account, because something is amiss somewhere.
I am not a member of Google plus, and have no intentions of signing up for it, because I don't like how it works. I simply have a regular Google account which anyone can sign up for to enable re-joining my follower's list.
Thanks for your understanding and patience and for those of you who've been faithful followers for such a long time, I thank you for your loyalty! You all make this blogging experience worth every minute!
