Why am I being blocked, from Following?Some would be Followers are taking this personally. Please, don''t do that.
What you're seeing (maybe, when trying to Follow this blog, too) is not an owner initiated conspiracy.
The Blogger Followers gadget rewrite is taking shape.
If you're trying to use a non Google account to login to Following, you'll be seeing this, for some blogs.
If you want to Follow some blogs, you will need to use a Google account. The OpenID and similar non Google logins are not usable, with Following, any more.
We were warned, several months ago, about changes to Followers.
As we mentioned some weeks ago, starting this week, we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. To follow a blog via Google Friend Connect now, readers will need a Google Account (the same they use for Gmail or YouTube).
It's happening, finally. One day, we'll have a new - and more stable - Followers gadget.
The #Blogger Followers gadget rewrite is continuing. This month, some would be Followers are seeing a notice, instead of the gadget, when they try to Follow some blogs, without Google accounts.
