that is if you don't know about it already of course
this happened to me this morning; a fellow blogger commented that she was following my blog but she didn't appear among the icon pics on the Google connect gadget and when I checked the list she didn't appear there either. I verified it with her and she told me she had followed me by adding my link to the blogs on her blog's dashboard. I commented that she had to sign in as a follower via the Google Friend connect gadget for the blogger to see who is following their blog. She did this and there she was on the followers list. Since then I've been browsing around on the web to pick up a little bit more info about this and this is what I have discovered. If you add the blog you want to follow via the dashboard it will not appear on the Google connect followers gadget or list. This means that you may think a blogger is not following you but the blogger thinks he is. It also means that you may have more people following you than what you think....the ones who think they follow you via the link on the dashboard.
This is where you have to go to follow a blog :
|Google Connect Gadget|
and this is where you go to add a blog to your blog list
Sorry to say Tabiboo I don't see you on my follower's list please add via the Google Connect gadget on my blog. :-)
Blog etiquette advice please.....confused
I hate being confused,I hate not understanding and as I tell my students if you don't ask you don't know!
I wonder if I am lingering where I am not wanted?????
Now bear with me a minute and I'll explain my doubts and hope that some kind soul can clarify for me
I am still a blogger learner but learning more and more from you the experienced bloggers out there as I go along.
However its not my intention to disrupt blogger etiquette so please correct me if you think I have misunderstood how one should go about this blogging business:
As I understand it this is the procedure:
- You blog-hop to find other blogs that coincide with your own interest (or you just like)
- once you have found the blog you find interesting you follow said blog
- you comment on the blog that you are following
- if you receive a comment back that blogger then reciprocally follows your blog
- the blogging relationship commences up until one of the blogger decides to cut it short (for whatever reasons).
Is it the norm in this case to just stop following or just continue as an anonymous reader?
If you are following a blog have received replies and comments from the blogger but said blogger does not follow you. Does one just ask are you going to follow my blog or what?
Thanks in advance for your help
PS: I want followers but I want the reciprocal relationship that goes with it more. Quality more than quantity!
