Following my blog...

We have had lots of people asking how to become followers of my blog. Being new to blogging myself I've been researching ways of doing this...

The first way I discovered was to click the 'join this site' button which is under the followers heading and then signing in from Twitter. Once signed in it gives you the option to 'follow'. If you dont have a Twitter account it gives you the options to sign in from yahoo, google account, AIM, Netlog or Open ID. If you don't have any of these accounts click here to open a google account.

We also found this information handy..

'You can follow any blog, even if it isn't hosted on Blogger or doesn't have the Followers gadget. Just go to your Reading List in your Blogger Dashboard, click the “Add” button, and type in the blog’s URL which is


If any fellow bloggers can share any more hints or tips for those struggling it would be very much appreciated.

  1. Ooh thank you about the info on if a blog has no follow button. Over at the "Twelve days of Christmas" with Tim Holtz I had to open his blog each day as I couldn't follow it, so thanks for that.
    Hope all is going well in Germany, and have a super Christmas and New Year. Debbiexx

  5. Hy mel I live in the netherlands and follow c and c by satelite now for 3 months. You made me curious and happy with the scanandcut machine. My hobby is parchment but I had the last year problems with cutting the papers. Now I have a scanandcut cm700 and it makes my day I have found joy in crafting and I look forward to all your tips and tricks about this machine. For me I was easy to push your follow button for your blog and follow you with pleasure greetings from almere. Carla
