Last week I became aware of an issue with Blogger I have NEVER encountered before, and thought I would share with you guys since you may be unaware as well (or not, I may be living in my cave in the woods!) I have a lot of blogs I follow and I regularly enter the giveaways if it is something that applies here in my home. Hey, what can I say, I like the things you guys list, I support you, hope you support me back, etc.
So, When it asks if I am a GFC follower OF COURSE I AM- I followed months ago. Besides, some of you guys I have actually won from, so I couldn't have won previously if I am not a follower right? (In most cases at least it is a requirement). Here's the snag. Blogger is unsubscribing me from my friends. I don't know why, I am sure it is simply a glitch. However, I was emailed the other day from someone I have previously won from and told I hadn't completed the mandatory public follow entry. GASP, I don't cheat! Say anything negative you want to about Ally, two things are true regardless of what people say: I never lie, and I never cheat. I may speak the truth in love or simply speak the truth, but lie, I do not.
So, now I am aware to triple check with every single blog on every single giveaway. What I have noticed. At least 20 blogs that I would bet my life on that I have joined (again, won from at least half of them in the past year) I was no longer a member.
The moral of the story? Check your memberships! You may be shocked to find you aren't a follower when you have previously joined. And honestly, shame on me for not doing it before, because it takes mere seconds to do it!
I hope this is helpful to you guys, for it has been truly eye-opening for me!
