Apprently Blogger has made a change to the Followers add a gadget and it is not working correctly. I deleted mine, thinking it was a problem on my end...when I went to add it back, found out that Followers is now showing up as a new add a gadget and is not set up correctly. I checked a couple other blogs and their Follower title is there but does not have any followers listed. I am so upset, because now I have lost those people who had signed up as followers....man, worked so hard to get where I was.
Just wanted everyone to know there is a problem and don't delete and try to re-add your followers, as I'm sure Blogger will be fixing soon. I'll be asking that you reset yourself as a follower, as soon as I can.
