    I changed my blog URL from rgonaut.wordpress.com to changedrgo.wordpress.com (and a second blog, rgoswordsandsong.wordpress.com to changedrgowords.wordpress.com), it looked like my followers were correctly tranferred. The new URL shows 86 followers, however, only new followers (after the url change) actually see my posts in their reader or get notified by email. I would like to correct this situation on both blogs. I could go back to the old URL’s or I could stay, I just want my followers to get notifications of new posts.

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

    Would you be able to give us the username of one or two individuals who cannot see your posts on http://changedrgo.wordpress.com/ ?

    Sure angrygaijin .wordpress.com
    and beautifulmess7 are both examples that do not get notified or updates in their readers.

    An example I believe does get updates is smittenwithhim
    Hope this helps!

    Both uses seem to be getting the blog, but they also have over 100 subscriptions, so it could be getting lost in the “noise”.

    Just in case, I’d ask them to unfollow and refollow, but it does appear to be working for them as of now.

    Ok I’ll make a test post and ask each to comment if they see it in their reader.

    Sounds like a good plan. :)

    If they don’t see it, just have them unfollow and refollow.
