    We are looking over how to improve the profiles and make it more clear to everyone what the blog profile is and how it differs from following the blog.

        Hi
        I just wanted to figure out what's the status?
        I know this is a free service, but it's almost a year now.

        I don't see what following a profile does?! I doesn't actually do anything so is quite pointless being there.

        I do agree that it is a bit confusing having a profile and and blog profile, I think keeping one is more that enough, thank you very much for taking our feedback

        I too would like to have all followers following my blog rather than a split between the blog and profile. it's confusing and doesn't help my followers keep up to date with my blog posts. Could you amalgamate all followers and just have the profile as a reference?

        I'd like to keep the profile, I ahve found it useful, but I agree that it it needs to be more distinct from the blogs

        I agree, I have 300 people following my profile instead of my blog...this does me no good! Can I consolidate them so that my blog/profile are one and the same so all my followers are in one place?
        Thanks!

        If a person follows the profile & not the blog, maybe put up a notification asking if they would like to follow that person's blog or keep following their profile. (If you guys are keeping that option.) Seems like a reasonable solution to me.

        If you have a blog connected to your account, I'd rather see the personal followers automatically combined and have one count, not two. There's really no need for it.

        At the very least, can you make it optional to follow profiles? I find it extremely irritating to follow a new blog, then suddenly find I'm automatically following the profile of the blogger as well. I think it should be an opt-in, not an opt-out kind of thing. Thanks!

        Please keep the follow profile option. While bloggers provide the content here, bloglovin is essentially a reader service.

        Keep in mind that the writer's work and the writer's social presence are two separate yet equally important factors to readers.

        I may not even want to follow every blog, but I may be interested in a writer's perspective, likes, and other activity.

        Following the person and not just the work is an important reader feature, and it's one that enhances bloglovin above the many rss alternatives.

        Thank you.

        I don't mind that you can follow profiles, I just wish you wouldn't automatically follow someones profile when you follow their blog!

      • Daisy WaltersDaisy Walters commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agree with the I use BlogLovin' to follow blogs, not profiles. I have more followers following my profile than I do my blog, but it's completely pointless as you can't even see anything through my profile? PLEASE GET RID!!
