Why does it say I have more followers than I actually have?

  1. On my blogs home page, it publicly displays that I have 66 followers. At first I was really happy to see that, but then I realized that I didn't have any notifications or emails. I then went behind the scenes to see who was following me. It says I only have 5 followers. Why does it say I have more followers on my home page than I actually have?

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

  2. See here http://wordpress.com/my-stats/?blog_subscribers
    Know that if your use Publicize your followers from Facebook, Twitter, etc. are included in that number.
