The Followers Gadget on Blogger - Part II - How to Follow a Blogspot

In my first blog about the Followers feature of Blogger, I showed you how to add the Blogger feature to your own blogspot. If you missed it, just scroll down. That post will be at the bottom of this one.

  • Today, I'm going to tell you how to become a Follower on someone else's blogspot.

  • Tomorrow I'll finish this series by revealing the benefits of following other blogspots. You may be surprised by what you find out.

Part II - How to Follow A Blogspot:

  1. Look for the section marked "Followers"

  2. Click on the phrase, "Follow this blog"

  3. A popup window will come up asking if you wish to follow by using your own name or being anonymous

  4. Indicate your choice and click Follow at the bottom of the popup

  5. If you get a question asking if you really want to follow, answer yes

  6. That's all there is to it. Now you're a follower. If you answered yes, your photo will displayed with the others. That means anyone visiting my blogspot will see your photo. That's not all the benefits you'll get by being a follower. Stay tuned for much more.

Please come back tomorrow for Part III of my series which will explain the many benefits you'll now receive because you've become a Follower.

Did this mini-course teach you how to be a follower? Or, were you already a follower here? If so, I thank you.

If you're one of my new followers as of today, I also thank you.

Do you need to learn more about the benefits of following before you commit?


  1. Oh, thanks for the info. I have a blogspot blog too, but I haven't use the "follow" features...maybe I will try it today. Thanks.

  2. Thanks for being my first follower, Morgan! This is a fun and interesting blog series.

  3. Thanks for your helpful tips, Morgan. I'll be very curious to read tomorrow's post. I have never used the "followers" button on my blogs, but I'm about to start!

  4. Morgan, thanks for the clear instructions. I always appreciate hearing about how to do "something" in a clear and concise manner.

  5. I just discovered the follow thing on my own blog a little back, so I am interested in seeing the third part!

  6. Thanks for all this useful information! I ended up upgrading my old template as a result, so I could even SEE the layout menu, then adding both the Subscribe and Followers gadgets. Can't wait to read more tips!

  7. Thanks, Morgan. I love to run across techie stuff that even I can understand!I'm now a follower.

  8. This is a very imformative blog! I'll be sure to come back. I see that you write romance novels. I write for children. I find I do my best writing through the day, especially in the morning. I do agree with you that ALL people should be included in stories. Not only the types (professions or disabilities) that are 'in'.

  9. Oh, this helps me understand the new features in blogger. Thanks for sharing!!!
