Sometimes I think I'm always the last to know.
I have been experiencing a lot of consternation lately about this following thing on Blogger. Not that I don't want to follow and have my little avatar on other people's blogs and stuff. That's not the problem. I already subscribe to a lot of blogs through Google reader. When the following thing came out, I didn't realize it would show me posts in my reader, from all the blogs I started following. If I chose to follow a blog I was already subscribed to - I was getting duel posts, every time. Made me crazy.
I could not figure out for the life of me, how not to get those double posts. I looked all over my Blogger settings to no avail. I ended up choosing to either follow somebody - or to subscribe, but not both. I was annoyed by the way the 'following' blogs were separated out at the bottom, but at least I wasn't getting double posts anymore.
So if somebody started to follow my blog, and I wanted to follow theirs, most likely I was already subscribed. So I would follow, and UNsubscribe.
I'm an idiot.
