I need a little help in the 'followers' department from whoever is proficient in Blogger. I've searched and come up with similar problems on forums, but none of the solutions seem to work for my particular problem.
My Blogger profile, the one you see over on the right, is Gyro. It's got all my personal info, the blogs I'm a part of, and my cool zombie-victim avatar pic. When I'm a follower of someone's blog, let's say my buddy Flounder's Imaginary Lives, you can see my little icon in his followers collection. In the blogroll from the Blogger dashboard I can see his updates whenever he posts stuff.
It used to be all I had to do was click 'follow' on someone's blog, my zombie-victim icon and name 'Gyro' show up, I click confirm or whatever, then the new blog is now in my blogroll, and Bob's your uncle. Now however, when I click follow on someone's blog I get nothing that comes up other than a 'follow' button. No 'Gyro', no zombie-victim avatar, nothing. Sometimes the avatar is blank and instead of 'Gyro' it just says 'Mik'. I do all kinds of stuff; log in as a different user, log in through a different service, but no matter what I do, zombie-victim avatar and the name 'Gyro' refuse to make an appearance.
Take the blog 4-Ones by Big Bad Garou. He started following my blog here, I checked out his blog and it looked cool, so I clicked follow on his. But no, I'm a grayed-out avatar pic, and when you click on it there is zero profile information like my own links or whatever.
The kicker is, the blogs I do follow in this "anonymous" manner, such as Frank's Gaming World, still show up in my blogroll with all the others signed up for originally by "Gyro". Technically I'm not missing any content from new blogs I join, but on the other hand, I don't want to follow all new blogs from here on anonymously either.
Has this happened to anyone? Any suggestions? Tips that work? Thanks...
