Missing Followers Gadget Content - March 2011

This evening, we are seeing a small flood of reports about missing Followers, in various Followers gadgets. The reports posted so far, in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, have been inconsistent and incomplete, and identifying a pattern isn't possible.

We have a rollup discussion, where we are collecting details about your personal observations.
  1. Are all Followers icons missing? Is the Followers count also missing? Is a blank space visible, where the icons should be seen?
  2. Are the icons missing when you are logged in to Following, with your icon visible at the top of the Followers gadget?
  3. Are the icons missing when you are not logged in to Following, with the "Follow" button visible, at the top of the Followers gadget?
  4. Are the icons missing on blog(s) which you own, or blogs which you do not own? Can you see the Followers, in my sidebar, to the right?
  5. Are Followers missing also, from your dashboard list for your blog(s)?
  6. Please identify blog(s) where you do not see Followers, by URL.
  7. Where are you located (city, province / state, country)?
  8. What Service Provider connects your computer to the Internet?
  9. In what browser (name, and version) do you observe the problem?
  10. In any browser (name) do you not observe the problem?
If you are observing this problem, a complete description of the problem which you can provide may help identify a pattern.


Blogger Support states that the problem has been fixed.
We believe we've fixed this problem. Please try viewing your blog again- simply reloading the page should do it! If you have any problems please don't hesitate to update the forum.

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.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
