        I can't stand how when I follow a blog, automatically the person's profile gets added to my follower list. I want to follow 1 thing, not 2 and then if I decide to unfollow the blog down the line, when I go to 'edit blogs you follow' and unfollow the blog, it doesn't get rid of the person's profile so you need to manually find it in order to unfollow - why make it so difficult? It's ridiculous.

        what's the point of following profiles? this is bloglovin' not profilelovin'! I don't think this is a necessary option and I don't understand how many people are actually following my blog...

        I don't think it's confusing, I just think it's irrelevant - I use Bloglovin to follow blogs, not friends. Trying to become a social network outside of blogs just dilutes the uniqueness of Bloglovin!

        Yes!! I agree! I don't need people following my personal profile, it's not exciting. I want people to see the posts I spend hours on! Aka, MY BLOG.

        Plus it is totally unnecessary and even annoying that I end up following profile when I follow a blog. I have to manually unfollow in my profile. Hate this. Sorry

        I totally agree with getting rid of following profiles! Just have following blogs.

        I use to not mind the profile option because there was alway just a 1 or 2 number difference but now it is almost up to 10 difference. The profile follow option need to either be removed or when someone follows your profile it should automatically follow your blog.

        I'm really unhappy about this....my blog shows that I only have 116followers but I have 221 following my *profile I think people are getting confused and following my blog via my profile....seriously what is the point....people either follow you or they don't SIMPLE!!

        I can't understand the profile/blog following either.
        If someone follows me, I start to get messages of their activity, because I'm automatically added as their friend too. Totally unnecessary.
        Also, I have the feeling, if you follow a blog, not the profile, the blog owner does not get a message, because nobody of more than a 100 has followed me back. Well, that may also be because my blog is boring.

        I like the follow profile option because I have friends on BlogLovin who are not bloggers. I can follow their profile and see what blogs they are interested in. I think it's a great way to find new blogs to follow. Don't get rid of this feature!
