Non-Bookish Related Post: Unfollowing Blogs

Hi everyone! So this is rather a random post. I am not sure if anyone is experiencing this but some of the blogs I’ve been subscribing/following are no longer appearing on my feed, only to find out that I have “unfollowed” them without my knowledge.  I’ve been wondering as to why posts of some occasional bloggers here on WP of whom I follow no longer pop up on my WP reader. I discovered this when I was looking at tags and found that one of the blogs I follow (this blogger posts a lot so that’s how I recognized their blog), I am no longer following. I think there must be something that is causing you to “unfollow” a blog. So is there anyone experiencing this? Do you think it’s a bug? Or maybe it’s just me (i.e I may have accidentally unfollowed someone while scrolling on my reader)

If I was a subscriber/follower of your blog (to your knowledge), and is no longer following you, let me know! If this is an issue that WordPress is experiencing in general, I hope it gets resolved soon!

Have a great day everyone!

    1. I think so, too. For some reason I’m not following you either–but I do recall following your blog.Oh my goodness I hope WP fixes this.

  1. I had that problem when some people were moving over from a wordpress.com site to a wordpress.org site. When you move, your followers should automatically migrate with you in most cases but I wasn’t migrating. I think I had to hit follow multiple times before it worked and they started to appear in my feed.

  2. Oh dear, that does seem like a lot of unwelcome trouble! I’ve been quite on and off WP lately, just barely skimming through my Reader, so I haven’t really noticed. I’ll definitely check, though. Thanks for sharing this, and I hope it gets fixed soon!

    1. It’s probably not happening to you which is a good thing. I had to refollow a few blogs, even multiple times because WP keeps telling me that I’m not following them.. :/ Hopefully this problem gets acknowledged.

      1. Oh, that must be quite the hassle! 😦 I can imagine your frustration of having to refollow blogs multiple times. :/ Best of luck! Maybe it’s glitch that will go away soon…? Perhaps as more bloggers notice this issue, something will be done to further investigate the problem. 🙂

        1. It is. :/ I do hope it is just a glitch..

          So far I only know a few who at least experienced this, but if it does start happening to a lot of bloggers then hopefully WP resolves it.

    1. Could be. But then there’s some inactive blogs that I have been following for months now. Moreover, I mostly read people’s post via reader so I don’t go visit their blog site unless their post is only partially showed on the reader hence I have to go to that blogger’s main site.

      You’re one of the blogs that I had to refollow because for who knows what reason you were on my recommended blogs to follow which I found odd because I already knew I was following you. I had to refollow quite a few blogs actually, and these bloggers were the ones that usually post mostly on a daily basis.

    1. Yes that’s so true. I could have been following a blog for months now and just assumed that the person is inactive, only to find out that they were actually unfollowed. If there is a bug causing this then I hope it gets fixed.

    1. I know quite a few people who is experiencing this. I think it has been asked in some WP forums but it’s not being acknowledged or at least no answers are provided for this issue, if there is any.

  3. Me too!! I once had to follow my friend 3 times in one day because it kept showing that I wasn’t following her. It’s so weird! There are times when on the mobile site it says I’m not following someone even though I know I am and then on the website version it’ll say that I am. I’m not sure what’s going on but it drives me nuts.

    1. I know what you mean. On my followers section I have to click follow multiple times until it lets me know that I am following the blog….It’s indeed very odd.

      And yes on my mobile app some of the blogs I follow don’t even pop up on my feed but does on the website.It’s so weird.

  4. I think that sometimes, it may be our fault that we accidentally unfollowed someone. However, I don’t believe that this is the case every single time.

    I think that this nonsense has been happening during the last 2 months or so. I personally have to “refollow” several bloggers, sometimes, I even have to refollow a single blogger for a few times.

    This issue has been asked on the WP forum several times but no one seems interested on enlightening us on the reason for this…

    1. It’s definitely a possibility.

      That happened to me as well. I have to keep clicking “follow” multiple times….I hope it gets resolved soon, if there really is something that is causing this particular problem.
