Sigh. Ain't technology 'wunnerful'?! This evening I discovered that I was following five -- count 'em! -- five blogs twice: once under the auspices of Google, and once under those of Yahoo. What a way to make those bloggers think they had a larger-than-real-life audience! Furthermore, though I was following them, I wasn't getting notification of up-dated posts on those blogs...because "Yahoo" following doesn't register through in my Blogger blog reading list. Go figure.
So...bless you, "Material Moments", "Plays With Needles", "Surface Design Alberta", "Wil's Art" and "Artystuff" -- you haven't lost a follower; you've just had your follower stats tightened up!
