Problems with Blogger and the Follower Widget

I was having problems with my blogger page opening. I checked out the help topics and found that the widget for Followers might be the culprit. Blogger is aware of it and is working on this glitch. The only way to display my blog is to remove the "Followers" widget, so I have removed it for now. No one seems to know that when and if Blogger is able to fix this problem and we restore the Follower's widget - whether all our friends who are on the Followers list will restored...? I kinda like that widget so I'm sorry I have to take it off my page for now.

Anyone else having this problem?? Share your trials and tribulations.

Have a lovely day!

Hi, I have that same problem since this morning. IE is not able to view my blog. Safari and Firefox are working fine. I really don't want to remove the follower widget but If it is the only solution for now I really hope I won't "loose" all my followers, will I???

I wish I knew if I will loose my followers or not...I tried to put it back on my blog but I kept getting knocked off so I really couldn't check - maybe try in a few days.
Good luck : )

I use Safari browser, and have had intermittant problems. Hope the blogger teams sorts it out soon!
That's a real pain. I have noticed lots of people seem to drop off and then pop up again, but maybe that's not a blogger issue??

Yes! Follower widget dropped me from a bunch of blogs and now the Dashboard hasn't been updating me on the newest blogs!!!

Did you take it off after you posted this? If it was after, then I just want you to know that your follower link showed up in my little following box. I hope that makes sense...

I've been having problems since yesterday. Firefox works fine. Hope they will fix it soon. I'm not removing my widget yet--hope it doesn't come to that. :(

Angela - that is really interesting because I took the Follower link before I posted the blog and then later - when I wanted to see if my follwers would show up intact I added the widget but my blog would not open. so I immedidately pull it off. You must have checked my blog at that moment - maybe-fingers crossed- - when I display the follwers widget all will be fine.
Sheila, Liz - I'm just glad I'm not the only one with the proglem. Wouldn't want to have suffered alone, eh?

I'm in the same fix as the rest of you. I noticed it late last night. My blog opens very slowly and I'm not seeing any updates from the blogs I follow. Hopefully it will be corrected soon. I haven't removed my follower widget yet, but might have to...

I'm not really sure what problem you all are experiencing, but I have been following well over 100 blogs for the past year and have noticed all along that as I add new ones, I don't get updates from the old ones! I try to go back and pick the old ones up again.

Hi Carol,
The problem I was experiencing was that when I go to my blog page I get "unable to connect to internet" error message and cannot see the blog. I can still get to my dashboard. I saw a number of people this was happening to on their troubleshooting forums so I opted to take the followers widget off for now.
What have you tried to do to fix yours?

Hi Judy,
I still have my followers, but I was trying to get the side panel of my blog list showing the works of other artist. This is all so confusing.
