We're sorry.In the sidebar, underneath "Follow Me".
This gadget is configured incorrectly. ...
That sight made me wonder if the Followers gadget, when viewed in the live blog, would again work properly - when recently, I had begun wondering if the gadget would ever work, again. And, when I investigated, I found my musings were correct.
The Blogger Followers (Google Friend Connect) gadget, titled here "Follow Me", is once again operational.
A not unacceptable tradeoff.
Clicking on the "breakout" icon, at the top right of the gadget, in the sidebar to the right, shows a long ago seen result.
It's been a while since this was a familiar sight, on this blog!
Surfing through my most recent new Follower, I found another blog with the Followers gadget in the sidebar.
And, I Followed that blog.
And I now see myself, in their community.
And I can click on my icon, and see my Followers profile.
Now, I await confirmation from any of my faithful readers. Hoping that I am not the last user of the Blogger Followers gadget, I await your comments - and maybe somebody surfing through this gadget.
Just don't be looking for it to display, in Preview mode. If that is a necessary tradeoff, I consider it righteous.
