Can I block followers if I'm private?

  1. My blog was public because I forgot to make it private. Someone followed me and then I made it private. Please help! I don't want to delete my blog name because I love it sooo much! Can I block the follower when I'm private? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!

    The blog I need help with is ohdearjournal.wordpress.com.

  2. Staff can remove this follower now you have made the blog private. What is the identifier email for that follower please?

  3. If I'm understanding it right, her email is [email redacted] and her username is mr688475. I cannot thank you enough!!!

  4. Hi there,

    As long as your blog is set to private, that person who has subscribed to your blog would not be able to see your posts and wouldn't get updates whenever you made new posts.

    We aren't normally able to remove followers since they're just able to re-add themselves, however in this case I was able to do so.

  5. Oh! Thank you so much! I don't know how to thank you! You totally made my night! When I made my blog, I had no clue that someone would be able to ever find me. THANK YOU!:))))))))))

  6. @ash- staff previously advised us that they would be willing to remove a follower from a Private blog just to increase community members' comfort level. Thanks for doing so.

    Just to clarify for anyone else coming across this thread, on a Private blog no one can re-add his or herself, since viewers have to be invited by the site owner/admin to view the site and that permission can be revoked at any time in the Privacy settings.
