Question?

Question - I have a lot of blogs I follow. Some blogs haven't posted in a year or more. I want to remove these blogs from the list I follow. Many of these that I click on tells me that it is a private blog or you just cannot access the blog. Other I click on their blog is there and when I click to un-follow it's as if I am a new follower. I don't get it. I tried deleting these from my 'design' page "blogs I follow" but they are still there. Maybe I should just give up. Blogger can be so frustating sometime. Oh but I already said that today.

I think on your "profile" or home page where you manage your blog, there is a list of blogs you follow and probably a button that says "edit" the list, try clicking that and it may let you delete a blog.
Not mine though, pretty please, LOL.

Darla said...

Not mine either!!! lol
I have wondered how to do this myself. I would also like to delete some of those weird people that follow my blog....I'll be waiting for you to share your answers Becca.

Becca, I came back by to see if anyone had given you an answer and started giggling when I read all of the 'please don't take me off your list' comments.

Hi Becca,

I thought I had an answer for you. I actually did some unfollowing last week! Do you think I would remember how to do? Nooo! It is not as apparent as it was to me last week! Ha!Ha! So stay tuned. I'll get back to you! Nancy

OK, Becca, here we go. Go to your dashboard. On the left hand there is a list of blogs you follow. Go to the bottom of the page, not just the list. There are two blue buttons, Add and Manage. Click Manage, it will give you a list of your blogs you follow. The ones you want to ditch (sorry, bad word choice), you click on settings in the far right column. It will give you a box with a lot of stuff. There will be blue wording on the right hand side that says Stop following this site. Click on that. It will give you a box Stop Following or Cancel. Stop Following. Do these steps for each blog you want to not follow yet more. It's OK. I actually found one more blog that doesn't exist any more blog. So go down your list and make sure your favorites still exist and stop following the ones you want to stop following. I'll stop writing now. If you have any questions, I would be glad to answer them. Have a great weekend, Becca. Nancy

Lemonverbena Lady is right so just follow her directions. I came back here because your question intrigued me, and I went to dashboard, found the manage button at the bottom of the page, and to the right of each blog name appears "settings", clicked on that and I indeed succeeded and stopped following 2 blogs.

Just take your finger off the delete button! No, not me Becca! LOL!
Glad you got your question answered Becca.I go through mine and get rid of the ones who stopped posting too.I hate to see people stop because I always wonder what happened
I am tuckered out tonight and just relaxing and reading some postings. One Festival down and one to go.
Have a good weekend.

I didn't read what others said --so this may be just repeating what others have said. Go to your dashboard. Go to Manage Blogs... They will all come up... On the right side of each blog, it says something like "Quit following" ... CLICK that, and then give Blogger enough time to delete it for you... It takes a little time --but it works.

Hugs,
Betsy

Becca, Blogger drives me crazy sometimes. The last few days it has been giving me fits!!

Hope you have a nice weekend in spite of Blogger. :-)

I don't know about deleting blogs but I do know that if you go to dashboard and click on the title that says how many blogs are following you, it has a button there to block blogs. That is how I got rid of the blogs that were following me that gave me the creeps, Valerie

Hi Becca! I'm glad you got the answer. Now, can I answer Darla's question? Thank you! Darla, to remove a follower, go to your blog's Dashboard and click Followers. Then click on a guy/girl you don't like, and you will see several options, including BLOCK this follower. Click it. I do this all the time.

Darla said...

Well, ya'll have a wealth of information on this post! Thanks Becca for asking the question and thanks Tatyana for answering mine!!

RainGardener said...

Guess ya won't be deleting me because for some reason I never signed your follower list. LOL I think at first I just didn't click much on peoples pages but liked your blog so I kept coming back. I know there are others that I follow faithfully but I'm not a follower. Guess I should fix that. I actually had noticed before but after visiting people a year or more I was too embarrassed to become a follower at that stage.
