Unable to read followers' blogs

    I went to my 'site stats' page to see who my followers are. When I try to go to their blogs by clicking their usernames, I'm taken to their Gravatar profiles...maybe this is normal, but the profiles never link to the blogs. Is there another way I can see all my followers and commenters in one place and be able to see their blogs? I apologize if this has already been answered, but it did not come up in my search. Thanks.

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

    I can't edit my post, but the Gravatar profiles I'm directed to only give links to email addresses. I do get emails when someone follows my blog, with a link to their blog.

    The only way I have found is to use Google search which is a waste of time. It's up to us bloggers to complete their full gravatar profile, including posting links to their blogs, etc. When bloggers fail to do this either here > Users > My Profile or on the gravatar profile page we cannot compel them to do so.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if there was any other way other that Gravatar profiles.

    Just a side note...I find it kind of strange that some people would enter several different email addresses, but not the link to their blog. Maybe they are under the impression that the link is automatic? I've seen websites that work that way.

    There is no way around the fact that the gravatar images are linked to gravatar profile pages rather than being linked to our blogs.

    I find it strange that any blogger with any internet experience at all would choose to post an email address let alone multiple ones in an [[email redacted]] form that can be harvested by spam bots. Most savvy blogger don't post email addresses as they don't wish to have their email addresses acquired by spammers who in turn sell it to other spammers. They use secure contact forms instead. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/
