    HI, I have received emails from people who want to follow my blog but as soon as they start to enter their email address in the “Follow” widget, they get bounced to another page.
    Blog url: http://shariblaukopf.wordpress.com/

    Are you referring to the Follow Blog Widget or the follow button that appears for logged-out users in the bottom-right corner of your page?

    For those who’ve written in to you about this problem, would you be able to get a bit more information? For example, please let us know the browsers that these visitors to your site are using.

    Additionally, if your followers are brought to a new page while entering their email address, can they send along the URL of the page that they see?

    I am referring to this “Follow the sketchbook blog via email” that requires an email address. Same thing happens to me when I try it.
    Here is what the would-be follower said:
    Safari normally and the same problem happens if using Firefox
    From both browsers the curser in the subscribe box immediately defaults to this page: http://shariblaukopf.com/new-workshops-summer-2012/
    Am I doing something wrong?

    The link in your “Summer Workshops 2012” was never closed, which meant that the link was applied to the rest of your sidebar. I have corrected it now.

    It was:

    <a href="http://shariblaukopf.com/new-workshops-summer-2012/"><div>I will be offering watercolour workshops in Montreal, Paris and Portland, Oregon. Find out more...</div>

    when it should have been:

    <a href="http://shariblaukopf.com/new-workshops-summer-2012/"><div>I will be offering watercolour workshops in Montreal, Paris and Portland, Oregon. Find out more...</div></a>
