Bloggers Seeing Their Icon Displayed As A Shadow, On Followed Blogs

A few bloggers this week are reporting Following some blogs, and seeing the icon representing them, in the Following gadget, displaying as a shadow, with no name popup. Clicking on the icon, they see no profile name, though they do see a list of Followed blogs.

Previously Followed blogs do not seem to be affected - icons and profiles display normally.

We have a rollup discussion, in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, where this problem is being explored.

If you are observing this problem with your Following profile, please provide some details, as best as you are able - and help diagnose the problem.
  1. When you sign in to Following, which button / link do you use?
    • Google
    • Twitter
    • Yahoo
    • AIM
    • Netlog
    • OpenID
  2. If you are using a Blogger or Google account for Following, is the account based on a GMail address, or a non GMail address?
  3. Are you logged in to Blogger (separately from the Follower login!) using a GMail or non GMail based Google account, when you Follow and observe the problem?
  4. Do you publish a Blogger blog of your own? If so, do you Follow your own blog, and what is the BlogSpot URL?
  5. Are you sharing your Blogger profile?
  6. What is your geographical location (city, province / state, country), and what Internet Service Provider do you use?
  7. Please Follow my test blog, and observe - and report - the result. Continue to Follow, as Blogger Support diagnoses the problem.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
