Somebody Is Sour Graping

24 February 2009

My sites are subject for template change (again). Something doesn't feel right about the new set up for both sites. My traffic went down, I lost followers and regular comments. I say, I take blogging very seriously. It's a big thing for me. Losing all these are risks once you get into blog advertising.
So now, I'll be doing the best I can to preserve what I am grasping at the moment and improve as I move forward. Sorry for the frequent template change. I love tweaking. Even with my other sites. I don't really stick to one design. For a time I thought of having a personal template made, but since constant change is already in my system, I will not consider having it done. At least for now. And if you have noticed that I already removed my Followers page element. Well, I got disappointed when I logged-in today. From 38 it went down to 32. And I can't blame anybody, they have their reasons. I take, that my site lacks interest already. And this is one thing that made me cancel my first 2 blogger accounts.
But I gained friends. Lots of them! For that reason, instead of feeling bad, I will develop this site even more. I was able to blend in a circle of moms that inspired me. We inspire each other. It's rare to get this kind of inspiration and strength nowadays. And I don't want to lose these people. We may not know each other personally, but they make my day complete too.

I've lost followers too, talagang you can't please everybody. What really matters is you've got friends. :D buti ka pa you know how to tweak. I'm not so techy to those things. I like changing themes too, siguro if I know how to tweak ang dalas ko rin magpalit ng template hahaha.

Hey, I lost a bunch of followers yesterday too. I started looking around and a few people have posted about it being a problem with blogspot. So, it's not just you! (people still love your blog :)

I've read some blogs posting about loosing followers too this week. So I think Blogger must have done something that triggered this problem. Just give some times mommy, they probably will solve this problem later.
Have a good day.

This link may be can explain about what happen:
http://groups.google.com/group/blogger-help-troubleshoot/browse_thread/thread/b1c638731a27ba37

Blogger is integrating with Friend Connect so "To avoid linking the profiles of Blogger and Friend Connect users without their permission, we have set these users to "anonymous" They are still following privately and will able to make themselves public again."

hi enchie.... read my post about losing your followers... dont take it personally.. blogger is doing something which caused us to lose followers... http://www.mommyjourney.com/2009/02/where-did-your-followers-go.html

Im here too, dont worry true friend blogger stays with you no matter how many times you change layout. I dont even bother thinking about followers, I dont follow much too, but that doesnt mean that I dont visit them. Heck, I dont even have a blogroll. So dont worry about it.

Mommy Ench bothered ako with this followers issue.. Google launched a new application.. beta testing (I signed up for it last year) and now they integrated it with blogspot.. my settings for the blogs I followed were changed.. nalungkot talaga ako because some thought na I am not following them anymore.. slowly I am changing the setting back to publicly following blogs..

Mommy Ench, I think the followers you have lost were those na nasama sa beta ng Google Friends COnnect.. nainis ako sa Google.. they should have at least warned us with it.. ang daming nalungkot because of that..
