    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.

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

        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!

        Am I the only one who likes the follow profile option?! I love it to see what posts other people save - I always find posts that I like, too! The only thing I don't appreciate is that when you follow a blog, you automatically follow the blogger. That should be changed. But as I said, I like the option!

        Has there been any more movement on this idea? It is extremely frustrating that people follow my personal profile rather than my blog. Is there any way we will be able merge the followers?

        Any news on this yet? And if we can move our profile followers over to our blog followers? Most of the people following my account have done it in trying to follow my blog!!

        If i delete my user profile account will I still have my blog account?

      • Cat ShawCat Shaw commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Is there anything happening with this, it was originally posted ages ago but I can see people are still commenting and it is still an issue. I agree it would be much better to have just one profile, I think a lot of people end up following a profile as a mistake, thinking they are following the blog! So frustrating.

      • BettyBetty commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can I delete the follow profile and still keep my blog. I have more followers on my profile than my blog.

      • Guðrun J.Guðrun J. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree. I really don't want people to follow me but to follow my blog. And I believe that it is just confusing people.

        The reason I like Bloglovin is that it does not try to be a social media. It is simply a blog-following-tool. I understand that you want to "upgrade" you product with these profiles. But it is truly not necessary ! we like it as it is! :)

        Is this seriously still under review? It's a year to the day and we're still stuck with the ridiculous personal profile when all we want is to only have a blog profile.

      • kristenkristen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        take the profile out. it's so confusing! I only want people to fallow my blog,

      • Maribel MMaribel M commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I just started using bloglovin and found this feature extremely confusing. I didn't want to follow people, rather I wanted to follow their blogs. I found myself having to go back to ensure that I was following their blogs and not them.

      • nenacecilianenacecilia commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        If you would add my profile followers to my blog followers I would have so much more followers. Now half of them just follows me as a person. I have no interest in that! Please remove this option. It's not necessary...

        Still looking over it?
        We need the follow profile option gone completely and members just choose the actual blog / blogs to follow and merge the followers together.
