    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.

        For me, I don't care if one reader follows my blog or my profile - but what I don't understand is: why shows the widget on the blog just one of both?
        Isn't it possible to simply sum up both reader number (blog+profile) and show them on the widget?

        When you follow a blog, don't automatically follow the profile.. It's annoying and your following/follower ratio automatically gets unnecessarily skewed.

        Has this been resolved yet? It's been lingering since 2013!
        It looks like many of us want our profile followers on the blog.
        Thanks.

        Hey is this going to be sorted anytime soon??? Its super confusing and this has been an issue since 2013!! Would really like my profile followers on my blog

        I seem to have more followers on my profile than my blog, so I hope this disappears soon. Especially as the under review comment was made in 2013.

        Why is it that everytime I follow a blog it follows the blogger as well? It's such a stupid concept and ruins statistics. I always end up unfollowing the blogger and just sticking to the blog itself but it's so infuriating that I have to do this daily and puts me off following any blog. Please fix this

        The follow profile option seriously needs to be got rid of. I have nearly as many followers on it as I have on my blog for some reason and I assume that some people have followed my profile by mistake. This doesn't bother me but as a blogger it does affect the statistics that I pass on to companies etc please can the two by merged or axe the follow profile completely!!

        hello to everyone!! Wave!!
        When we follow a blog, we noticed that the post saved items belong to other bloggers. If we don't save any post, then when people look at our profile in the list of followed blogs it looks empty. How do we change that?
        Do people follow our profile here or our personal blog?

        Thank you so much for your time.

        I like the option but sometimes I want to follow THE BLOG and when it automatically follows the blogger as well, it's really annoying. I don't care what they're doing to be honest.

        I like the follow the blog option. There is no need to follow me personally. Actually I love bloglovin.
        Thank you,
        Swan

        I love being able to follow other people's feed. It's how I find new blog to follow!

      • StellaStella commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        No need for people following us, just our blogs is enough. It creates a mess..

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        No one wants you to "improve the profiles", we want you to get rid of them. Listen to us. Also it shouldn't take you this long, it's truly pathetic.

        I'm following profiles and I can't unfollow them, it's totally broken. I can edit all the blogs I follow easily but there's no way to see or unfollow/manage all the profiles I'm following. Besides that, there's no functionality whatsoever to the profiles, there's no reason for them to exist, literally all you can do is follow their blog. It's so annoying!
