I've Lost My Followers

Pin It Now!

Through the years ~ My Romantic Home
Like so many other bloggers, I've lost all my Followers on my sidebar due to a problem with Blogger! It's a little scary to think that what took me years to build is now gone but I have faith that Blogger will find the problem and all my Followers will be returned to my sidebar! I like looking at your pretty faces over there...peeking at me through my monitor!

If you are having the same problems with your blog, please let them know and fill out the Missing Followers Report.  Let's get this fixed!!!

UPDATE: It seems to be an Internet Explorer issue because they are there when I use Mozilla Firefox and on my Mac with Safari! I'm so happy I didn't lose them all! It took years to get 4778 Followers!  This is probably a good time to say Thank you all who follow my blog! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

****************

This past weekend I rode in the Tour de Cure!  It's a bike ride for the American Diabetes Association.

My guy and his friend rode with me which made it so much more fun! Great company, wonderful weather and  I even got the T-Shirt....

I hope they get it fixed for you. I am following you and it still shows up on my list of blogs I'm following. Love all of your rosy pictures.

Katie said...

I haven't had the same problem (yet) but I'm still here! So even though we're not on your monitor, we're probably all still here! =)

Happened to me too a few weeks ago, lasted about a week and I didn't even fill out the complaint, I had seen so many others having the same issue. I know one blogger that has to comment anonymous because she can't sign in. Frustrating for sure!!

Kathysue said...

Cyndi, I am not sure what is the problem but they will come back I have lost mine twice over the last month. The other problem that seems to be occuring is people can not leave comments with their google account, so not sure if it is a google problem or blogger, who knows but I know it is very frustrating and a bit scary, Good luck with yours, Kathysue

Victoria said...

My followers disappear once in a while but I have faith that those smart computer techie types know what they're doing and will fix it! I think it's wonderful that we get to run our blogs for free!!!

That is so great that you're doing all this hiking and biking! You look so good!

Sandy said...

I've had the same problem. Several times in the last few weeks my followers have disappeared in my sidebar...but luckily each time they have shown up at a later date. I hope Blogger resolves this issue soon.

Helen said...

Use Google Chrome as your browser, your followers will most likely show up again. Mine did as did many others.

Susan said...

Don't worry, Cindy. The Follower box will come back. I was horrified when I lost my box, too, but Blogger brought back all my sweet, precious followers after a couple of days.

So, be patient and your will come back too (including me, because yours was my very first introduction to blogs in blogland!) Susan

Don't worry, we're all still here! Blogger has REALLY been playing up - I keep loosing my followers too, and I've had SO much trouble leaving comments. The ONLY way I can comment is by unchecking 'keep me signed in' on Google sign in - a real pain as I'm sick of signing in...I've a feeling my problems started when Internet Explorer upgraded to V9!

Jem said...

Don't worry Cindy, we can still find you!! I'm sorry you've 'lost' us all though - that must be a little worrying but I know Blogger will sort it out :-)

Hi Cindy - I see your followers back near the bottom - yeah! Blogger has been having some issues lately. No worries, we're all still here.
Looking good on the bike.

MeMeSue said...

Cindy your the very first blog that I followed in blog land. Hope you get us back soon.

I'm one of the bloggers who can't post comments on some blogs but can on others. It's very frustrating. I hope Blogger gets all these bugs worked out soon.

By the way...you look mighty snazzy in your biking getup!! Good Job on an important cause!

Midwest Cottage said...

Still here. You just need to add the widget back and they should reappear?

the cape on the corner said...

this happens to me often, but i think people are still able to follow. sometimes i don't see followers all day, but next thing you know i've gained a few. somehow they've managed to click thru. good luck getting yous back, but i find that refreshing the page makes them pop up sometimes. blogger is funky lately!

kluless said...

I upgraded to Internet Explorer 8 and my Followers box became visible again and hasn't gone away since.

Lorie said...

I think it is an browser issue. I am using firefox and see them just fine. And you are still in my Google Reader just fine too! ;D

⚜ ↁℯℬℬᴵℰ⚜ said...

I see them on your side bar Cindy. I think it is just if some are using internet explorer. I use google chrome..it took a second to download it, and it is faster too.

Cherished Treasures said...

I am still here !!! LOL - I would never leave you. I just love your Blog. Your followers show up on my monitor too. Hope they get it fixed for you soon.
Hugs, Carol

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

You are right. I can see them in Mozilla Firefox but not Internet Explorer! Whew...glad they are still there!

Liz said...

Mine come and go.... I did fill out the report... maybe they will listen to you since you are so high profile. I sure hope so. :(

Congrats on your ride! YOU are looking so fantastic! :)

This happens to me sometimes but they eventually show up on my sidebar again. I think that if you post a pic that's too wide it makes them disappear. At least that's been my experience. As soon as I do another post, with a smaller pic, the followers come back. I highly doubt that yours are gone forever. Good luck!!

By the way . . . I just read a comment about Firefox vs. Internet Explorer and I wanted to share this. I used to have the hardest time posting my blogs and photos on IE. Then my husband suggested I use Mozilla Firefox instead. It's the best thing he's ever told me to do!! My blog has improved 1000 fold!!! Better pics and less spaces between things. It looks more professional now. Just wanted to share that if anyone was having the same problem. : )

Dear Cindy, Congratulations on the race. So great your beau and his friend where there with you. I think your guy is so neat! Love, Joyce

sheila said...

I have had the same problem, It is funny, (sad) they do not show up on my computer, but they show up on my husband's computer. Let us know if you figure out how to fix it.

I lost mine for a few days a couple of weeks ago and then again last week for two days. Yes, very exasperating. I was so happy when they showed back up. But I had people emailing me saying they wanted to follow but couldn't find the gadget.

They'll turn up in a day or so.

Karen Deborah said...

I see your 4777 followers which is AMAZING!!
Can't believe how cute and young you look with your weight loss and fitness! Way to go girl!

I to had the same problem, came back after about a week or two so now I use Friend Connect.

Donna said...

Cindy,That is a scary thought! You are still showing up on my sidebar...Hopefully all is OK. There are all kinds of problems with Blogger. Hope they figure it out!

I have so missed linking up on Fridays, but I can't seem to get in on time. I usually don't blog over the weekend. Life is busy. :o)

Love your post today..the photos are gorgeous!

Elsie said...

Cindy I started reading your post and I started yelling "no, I'm right here" I am still your follower and then I finished reading and I thought "DUMMY" she
sure didn't mean you. LOL. I hope you get them back I like to see them too. You look so darn good and lively these days. I am so happy for you. Love your rose pics too.

Carol said...

You are looking good!
I think the followers will be found...eventually.

Splendiferous Girls said...

I see them too..yippee..

Sarah said...

Cindy, have faith that they will get it fixed. I've lost mine twice now, and both times they have returned. I filed a report both times, so perhaps that helps. Good luck. I know what you are feeling. It made me sad when it happened. ~ Sarah

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I see the followers are back. How exasperating blogger can be! Well look at you riding your butt off for a good cause! That is inspiring!

Trish - Sweetology101 said...

ditto other peoples post/comments happened to me too and it was incredibly irritating! Your picture mosaic is absolutely beautiful. This is a good reminder to BACK UP YOUR BLOG!!! I have you on my blogroll so I never miss a thing!

Bringing Pretty Back said...

Blogger is about to put me over the edge! What the heck is going on!? Whew - glad yopu got the list of followers back!
Have a PRETTY day!
Kristin

Screaming Sardine said...

I only use Mozilla, and all my followers disappeared, too. :(

**Anne** said...

We are all still here. The same thing happened to me, but all my followers appeared one day minus one who probably stopped following me anyway. Good luck.

Okio B Designs said...

I've been having the same issue on and off for a few days. I'm going to report it - thanks for sharing the link. It kills me when I visit someone new and I can't follow them because there's a blank spot where their followers should be. Argh!

Nancy W said...

None of us really lose our followers, you can always see them via your dashboard. I prefer not to have a followers box on my sidebar anymore. I have it up now strictly for a sponsored giveaway. Down it will go once it's over ;)

Cottage Sisters said...

I don't know if this will apply to your problem, but I lost the live feedjit app after I updated my Internet Explorer. I found that if you go to the tools button (upper right hand corner next to help button) and press the compatibility view it showed up again. I hope that works for you too!

Curtains In My Tree said...

Yes Cindy I have lost my followers several times and then they come back.

That shirt looks a little to large for you LOL

Terry @ La Bella Vie said...

Hi Cindy!
I had the same problem. Simply open your blog using Google Chrome and you will see your gadget Followers again.
I see it in your blog. You have 4781 right now.Only these? haha
I hope it works for you.
Kisses

Angela said...

Dear Cindy, don't worry, you can never loose us!
I had the same problem and I switched to Google Chrome, now all is well.
Give it a try, you can always go back, if you don't like it.
Hugs,
Angela.

Cindy Adkins said...

Hi Cindy,

NYCLQ said...

I haven't "lost" them, but I have noticed a sudden hault in new followers and comments since blogger started having problems with their system in May. Hope it gets fixed soon and your followers pop up again for ya! xo

:D Lynda

Jann Olson said...

I have lost my followers three times. I don't have alot yet so I was in despair the first time it happened. I thought it was something I had done. They've came back everytime after a few days, but it's still makes me worry a bit.

Patti said...

This is the 2nd time I have "lost" my followers (I have a MAC and use firefox) and the first time I also lost my "stats", which I didn't lose this time...however my stats are out of wack lately (they say I am getting over 500 visits from another blog and I am not even connected with that blog what so ever! I can't even "follow" annyone else while this is going on!! off to follow your link - thanks

Lydia said...

I hope they can fix the gremlins. They were out eating computer lists las week-(: From the other end, I lost a couple links I was following- found all but 2.

Godspeed and Good Fortune!

Handy Man, Crafty Woman said...

Mine weren't showing for a while too; I was so afraid they were gone, and I just got to about 500...I would have been SO MAD to lose my 500ish, never mind over 4,000!! congrats on having so many followers, that's awesome!
