We're Going Crazy!

OMD! What the &^$# is Blogger doing to us?  

Furst we have lost a bunch of followers.  

Now when we are trying to read everyone's blogs we have to check the box that says we are not a robot.

Then have to verify again my solving a photo quiz thingie and the photos are so small that we end up having to do it several times.  

Stop it Blogger!  Just stop it!

Every once in awhile Blogger goes berserk! We hope we don't end up with that, we have enough trouble downloading blogs to read!

If you check the "BUZZ" header to left of dashboard you will find that Blogger/Google is busy 'normalising' some processes and all the followers who do not have Google profile will be dropped of your membership count.... I was going to write a post but it may be that the one Millie Wife points to above may already be onto it... But as I say you can read all about it on the buzz pages... It is a phased roll out, so not every one at the same time will notice anything. I already experience this sort of thing the other way when I try to comment on WordPress bloggies... and not always signing in helps either. Sigh... we all just have to wait for it to settle. Again.

The pizza check thingo I have experienced when I have been posting and scheduling more than 30 posts ahead... but not otherwise. Yet.

Hope that helps to settle the panic. Huggies, YAM xx

we haven't had problems with blogger so much but heaps of troubles with browsers. We couldn't get Firefox to work and are now using edge - it works with some blogs and not others so then we have to use chrome and that works with wordpress blogs but not bloggers blogs - it is such a pain in the tush !

Our mom read about 87 blogs and had to do the picture thingy --- and then she forgot to hit the "post comment" button - or publish or whatever it is. Mom's head almost exploded!
Cammie!

Oh no! Not now!

NanaNor's said...

Thank you for this-because I just lost 8 followers since this morning-I always wonder who and if I shared something that might have been taken wrong. I'm thankful it's not just me, makes me feel better.
Hunter is happy and eating because Lily is here. Have a great night, if you figure out what blogger is doing please let me know. Not that I have a huge amount of followers, but still.
Wags,
Noreen and Hunter

This stinks. I am new to all of it so I do not know what to say. We are here and love reading!!

Hailey and Zaphod and their Lady said...

I am having non-blogger and sometimes blogger ones I can read, but the comment box isn't working either. I find that when I read a bunch of blogs in a row, as I go, I start having to check the robot box. Then that isn't good enough and I have to answer a question based on pictures . . . . blogger is being naughty.

Charliedownunder said...

Crikey .... so far so good here. I don't think I've lost anyone but I have had a bit of trouble commenting on some blogs.

Lauren Miller said...

Oh no! That is so weird? Are you having that problem with wordpress blogs, too? I went through that with wordpress and I had to contact their customer support.

KB Bear said...

My followers are disappearing too! What's going on?

Ziggy Stardust said...

What is going on??? You might need to get a Mayoral committee together to investigate. I bet it is squirrels. We are ok so far, but I will keep paws crossed for all of us.

Ziggy Out!!

Mark Muller said...

I get that box too when I comment on blogger... the worst is they show me pizzas and ice cream and steaks after I've got die-t kibble... yep, please stop that :o)

Casey said...

And we keep getting notices that someone posted, but when we click the link it says Page Not Found!!

Madi and Mom said...

First of all we loved your WW photos. That recliner is full of love and handsome mens.

Our follower thingie is at the bottom of our blog so we don't see it often but we did look yesterday and today we have 2 less followers!! It looks like from the comments you have answers. Google is being kinda pushy. Currently no problems here commenting nor am I having to prove who I am or take the eye chart test..thankfully I'd fail that for sure
Hugs madi your bfff

Bouncing Bertie said...

Hang on in there guys...

M. K. Clinton said...

Hmmm...I haven't had to do the I am not a robot thing yet, but I'm glad for the heads up. That link from Military Pug Wife is great.

Caren Gittleman said...

Same thing happened to us with the followers. At first I thought i was just losing people like crazy and was wondering what I was doing (or not doing lol)...then I read a few other blogs where the same thing is happening. It's crazy! My cat blog is on Blogger but Dakota's is on Wordpress.

Hey there agin - we wanted tue tell u that mom lost anuther follower tue-day.
We clicked on the BLOGGER BUZZard that showz at the top of the Readin'List on our Blogger Dashboard an'this iz just sum of what it sed "... we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.
We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers."

We Beaglebratz haf no idea how this stoopid move by blogger iz s'poze tue "improve the experience" fer any of us.

I agree, blogger just needs to stop it! I've lost several follower recently as well and was feeling bad about it until I discovered why. The verification thingy is really annoying too.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

And verifying were not robuts,,, stinks
