Much like Mary Shelley
Who wrote about a doctor creating a man
From  body parts not yet cold in their graves
I wanted to write on a cool blog
But I didn't like any of Blogger's templates
So I created one myself
Piecing together bits of this and that
Until I created 
It looks like a real blog
But doesn't behave like a real blog.

And if that isn't horrifying enough
After months of my blog acting lifeless
Not able to handle new changes
It's come alive again!!!
I know this to be true because the other day
I went to write a post and
My blog background was changed!
All by itself!
From black to white!
And I didn’t do it
It had to have been my zombie-fied blog!

And then for the last week
Every time I open up my blog
I’ve lost followers!
But I don’t believe for a minute
Thirty people have taken the time
To “unfollow" me.
Because you know how it is

You follow someone
But you don’t always comment
Nor do you “unfollow” them.
So my zombie-of-a-blog 
Must have devoured those followers!
Or wait
Do you ever unfollow someone's blog?
Do freaky things happen to your blog too?

There's been an issue with Google/Blogger lately regarding Followers - a lot of people have noticed a drop in numbers. Don't worry - you're not alone, and it's not personal! :)

Oh dear... a blog with a mind of its own. Hopefully it won't demand a bride next...

Hart Johnson said...

(and yes--I've lost a ton of followers, too--I think Blogger may be cleaning out inactive users or something--I am down about 100 people)

Google changed their policies and now only those with a Google account can follow via GFC. So it's not just you and your zombie blog.

Mine's not changed its background on its own. Yet. I did lose a bunch of followers, but everyone did this week.

Karen Walker said...

Yeah, I blogged about this just the other day. I've lost dozens of followers and thought it was me. Thanks for your visit and follow, BTW.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I freaked out a little about the loss of followers too but then I learned it was something blogger did. I don't know what it means but it's a little creepy that some AI type thing steps in and changes your blog. But I just followed you so now you got one back..

Thanks for all the comments. Phew! I'm not alone.

I think blogger has been doing some clean-up over the last month. I lost six or seven followers recently, and many of my followers commented on losing their followers too. This week I lost three. The first time it happened I thought I'd offended folks. Now it just is what it is.

I KNEW Google was behind the follower drop recently. Siiiiiiigh. Not that it matters much nowadays anyway, since people use other ways to keep track of blog posts.

Ha ha!
You've just made me wonder if Blogger has a time of day function the way Gmail backgrounds do -- they get lighter or darker depending on the hour!
