Clicking on the dashboard "gear" icon to the right of "Reading List", one should expect to see a list of Followed blogs, in the familiar menu. In some cases, what is seen will be bad news.
We are unable to load your FriendConnect data at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please try again shortly.
Upon trying again, the same error is frequently seen, repeatedly.
Some frustrated blog owners report that this problem has affected them, for some time.
This has been an issue for months. I need to be able to remove blogs I no longer wish to Follow - especially those which do not have a Friend Connect gadget.
This is not a heavily reported problem - but the blog Followers who cannot remove blogs, especially when faced with spam in the unwanted blogs - will not see this as a minor problem.
We have observed that, in cases where Blogger: Manage Blogs I'm Following (from the "gear" icon) does not perform, you may try Google Friend Connect: Sites I've joined. The latter may work, when the former does not.
