um... I've been blocked. I'm not loved???... boo


So I'm happily reading blogs this evening and I read someone's comment and then decide to check out her blog and see that she's just recently gotten her surgery date and I think - hey a new person, I think I'll follow her and watch her progress too.  I know I love when people follow me and the support out there is amazing - let's pay it forward, shall we.  So I scroll to her followers and see several familiar faces and click on her 'follow' button... and.... boo hoo... whine whine whine.  moan moan moan.  I'm not wanted.
This is the message I got when I clicked the button.  


We're sorry, the site owner has blocked
you from joining this site.

I've never seen such a thing on a blog.  Is it personal?  Do they not like me?  I mean, I can be a little out there, maybe have a bit of a potty mouth.  But I swear I'm a nice girl.  Why don't you like me, oh lovely blogger?  Deep breath in, deep breath out.  Okay.  I will try to not take this personally.  I think I'm going to decide that her follower thing was mysteriously broken and it's not me.  I'll sleep better if I think that.. okay, are you with me?

I'm with you... sometimes blogger goes nutty, sometimes bloggers mess up their settings, and sometimes we all need to simultaneous press Ctrl+Alt+Del

Have a great weekend!

I have never had it myself, in fact now I am curious how you manage to block someone to make sure I don't do it to anyone...

I have come across a few that after I have followed them they have made their blogs private. That was very discouraging but I rty not to worry about it. just know that we love it when you follow us :)

Sometimes people only allow screening of who is joining their site. Sometimes to keep people from "finding" them. You can set it under Settings/Permissions. Some set it to Only People I choose. There has been some nasty anonymous comments being made on blogs lately so I think there has been some screening. I do not allow anonymous posting and I have blocked two people from my blog (not you!). One was selling stuff and the other made a bunch of bloggers angry so I didn't want to let them do the same to me. I blocked but can't remember but I found it in the Blogger help. It only works if the person is a follower though. If not, you can only keep people out setting the Permissions to Only people I choose. I wouldn't take it personally because as mentioned there has been some pretty bad stuff being unleashed against a few bandsters from Anonymous posters. If you see I follow this person (or they follow me) send me an e-mail and I will try to contact them to ask if they will let you follow them.

I don't know how to block either...I haven't seen you do anything that would make anyone else block you either.
