I have noticed that many blogs I’ve been following seem to somehow not be followed by me? Anyone else having this problem? How do their posts show up in my feed if I’m not following them? I follow a ton of beauty bloggers, but haven’t seen much lately from them lately.
Yes, I noticed the same thing. I’m not seeing peoples blog posts anymore
I wonder what’s going on?
I too don’t see much of my older followers as such.. I have to go and look them up most times..
I have not noticed that but I did notice that wordpress did have traffic trouble this morning. I don’t know if they were doing an update of their systems or there was an internet attack. Keep us informed on the follower thing. Hugs
WORSTpress has been “updating/upgrading the blog platform for the past 6 months. During these VERY UNNECESSARY NON IMPROVEMENTS things at WORSTpress are messed up. More like FUBAR would be more appropriate.
I’ve posted about this same issue a few days ago. Not sure what it is, but it’s irritating.
I know, what a bunch of hooey!

Yes. There seems like there are some issues with the reader.
the problem I have is that on some of the blogs I follow, I suddenly can’t post a comment. Some work and some don’t. I have no idea how that can happen.
Have been experiencing similar problems. Annoying.
I can’t get it to accept my password so can’t leave comments unless using my phone. And it keeps crashing, AND the preview doesn’t change when edited😱
Yes, this does happen from time to time – blogs I follow drop off my ‘following’ list and other bloggers have told me that mine does the same thing to theirs. Bizarre!
Yes I noticed the same thing too. It’s very frustrating.
This happened to me some months back. But I wasn’t getting any notifications at all, for any of the blogs I follow. There’s a button in the Reader settings which switches off all notifications, and somehow WordPress had activated it for me! Might be worth checking your settings too.
Hope the problem is now solved.
Yes after reading your comments, I seem to get all these problems, but I accept it as like most things today it works some of the time which is the best I can expect 😂
I guess since I’m only paying $26 a year, I shouldn’t complain! LOL!
WordPress is a law unto itself.
This happened to me also, there is a lot of weird things that I don’t understand on here. xx
Same here. All my friends posts, can’t see any of them.. Only when they like my post I go to theirs immediately and read it up. My reader is behaving weird since a few days
I hope the whole site doesn’t crash! I would hate to lose all of my content. Thanks for stopping by.
I don’t know why it happens, but it happens to most of us eventually.
It’s an evil plot for sure! LOL!
Are you getting the posts via email or through the WP Reader? I get mine that I subscribe to via email. I have heard that strange stuff has happened. have you contacted WP Support? They are always super helpful!
I get mine through the WP reader. I haven’t contacted support yet, it’s more fun to complain! LOL!
Yes I’ve had the same trouble. I culled the ‘business’ blogs awhile ago to limit what comes up in my feed, leaving those I do follow … who apparently I don’t follow! It’s been happening for quite awhile now and I’ve given up trying to figure it out … if you have some insight, pleas share 🙂
I’ll be sure to let everyone know what I find out.
It’s happened to me since I started my blog a few years ago… Seems to be a glitch no one wants to fix. I just go to my settings and find the list of those I follow, then visit them periodically to “catch up.” Shame, though…Would like to read most of this stuff in real time!
Me too! Thanks for stopping by!
They are def having issues. I just found some comments from long time followers in my Spam box!? Which explains why sometimes when I comment on blogs I don’t get a response from people who normally would. I have had posting glitches as well. 😒
I’m finding most of the bloggers I followed when I first started don’t post any more. Maybe they said what they had to say…..my administrator told me not to get attached. (Too late) and I find many of my followers don’t give me a Lke even to let me know they stopped by……thanks for the visit this week. Cheers,H
It does seem weird. Thanks for stopping by.
Read and comment on my first blog post
I would really need brushing up on how to handle my blog
It’s very frustrating as I follow many beauty bloggers, and poof, all of a sudden I am no longer following them!
I believe that I read something about this a few weeks ago. Evidently, WP select blogs that they deem more ‘readworthy’ and those are the only ones you will see. Obviously the opposite is true, with regard to followers. I’m sorry if this has been commented on on here already. You have a lot of comments and I haven’t had time to read them. X
Thanks for the info.
Half of the blogs I follow don’t appear and I am now working my way through the alphabetical list of followed blogs to try and catch up!
Wow! Thanks for the comment.
I gave up trying to understand the mysterious ways of the blogosphere. WP and various sites I contribute to seem driven by some back-end moderator or a marketing guy with a plan, so I had to give up figuring it out and just keep on searching and hoping that I’ll stumble upon great articles now and then. Not a very encouraging response, I know, but it’s less stressful.
Thanks for stopping by.
I have the same problems.Some og persons I follow don’t give me that email and some other where i write also a comment ,has loose that buttom and i can only like them.Hope this change again
I am having an issue with the recommendation tab under the reader. Anyone else having this issue?
I have this problem, too! I was thankful to see this post because I thought it was just me!
I think it’s happening to a lot of folks! Very annoying for sure!
I’m having the same problem! X
It’s super annoying for sure!
