Since Google has removed the Follow button from the NavBar, following blogs has become increasingly difficult and annoying. For me personally, I have been manually adding the blog I want to follow via the blogger dashboard by copying and pasting the URL if they don't have a Networked Blog Widget or Google+ ~ this works fine, albeit a little long winded.
For those trying to follow me:
The Google Friends Connect Widget (GFC) doesn't show anything if I place it on my blog (even using GoogleChrome and FireFox browsers), it's blank and unusable. So why display a completely useless widget? That's why I don't, it's worthless in my opinion and looks unsightly.
I have many, many people saying they can't follow me because of this. That is why I signed up to Networked Blogs, however not everyone is using that, I also offer the Google+ facility to connect that way too, as this is being touted as the 'New GFC'. But there are still those that can't follow, so here is the solution, check out this link and it will solve all your following dilemmas.
The Real Blogger Status: Follow Blogs, Without A Followers Gadget: Recently, Blogger cleaned up the Navbar somewhat - and removed the "Follow" link. This left some blog would be Followers inconvenienced. Ho...
I hope this helps solve your following woes...
