I don't see that it can be something we've done, with an ever-growing group of us suddenly encountering this problem after months or years operating without any trouble. And we're all encountering the same symptoms. This must be a wider Google hiccup not individual user error - or why is it suddenly clustering like this? And when I haven't altered any of my activities related to Blogger/GFC?~~~
As other bloggers have indicated on this thread again and again, the inability to follow other blogs via the Join This Site button is a wide-spread issue which has been going on now for weeks. Please expedite this matter and work to resolve it. It is a popular feature that is widely used and enjoyed by your bloggers. It needs to be a known issue and be fixed by your expert technicians as quickly as possible. Thank you!
I realize that many of you are not having trouble using the Join This Site button, or you may no longer use it, or have it, or care that much about following other blogs in this way; a lot of you follow now through feeds. Nevertheless, I would ask that you also join in because it's a matter of principal. Today it is the follow button, tomorrow it might be an issue that does impact you. It would be appreciated if all of us who publish our blogs through Blogger could stand together on this.
To post to the thread, click on the blogger thread and make sure you are at the bottom of the thread. Go to the bottom of the screen and you will see that there is more than one page, click on 3, or 4 or whatever the highest page number is. Then go to the end of that page and after the last message in the thread, to the right, you will see an arrow which toggles, "Post reply." Click on that and a dialogue box will open. Paste my wording above in red, or write your own message in the box, and click "Post."
