    “Note that this page will only show active followers. People who have not confirmed or who have blocked following will not appear.”

    What does this mean? Can people and/or other bloggers follow you without you ever knowing or showing up in any stats? Can you somehow sign up for someone’s blog privately? I am confused!

    Can people and/or other bloggers follow you without you ever knowing or showing up in any stats?

    Anyone with WordPress.com blog can follow your blog if they choose to do so. You will receive an email notification if you set up this page for that:
    Settings > Discussion
    E-mail me whenever
    Anyone posts a comment
    A comment is held for moderation
    Someone likes one of my posts
    Someone reblogs one of my posts
    Someone follows my blog

    I can’t find the answer in your links and thank you so much for providing them. I am wondering if someone is able to read my blog without showing up on any stats, etc…is this possible and it would seem to be according to the wording I referenced above.
    Conversely, how do I follow a blog without showing up in stats, etc.? If I am logged into wordpress and peruse other blogs, will i show up in their stats?

    Be aware that any public blog can be followed by anyone online without them subscribing to get email copies of posts. Every WordPress blog has multiple RSS feeds and anyone online can subscribe to the feed(s) on any blog they wish to. http://en.support.wordpress.com/feeds/

    What we mean by “People who have not confirmed or who have blocked following will not appear,” is that people who have not clicked the activation link to confirm your subscription, or people who have chosen to block all emails from WordPress.com, will not appear in the subscriber list, simply because they cannot be subscribers.
