Then there is a bunch of followers that I never knew about but they appear on top right in a drop down. Are they using a different tool to “follow” my blog. Is it that follow button on bottom right? I’ve never used that button. Does it function the same as suscribing to a blog?
A subscriber and a follower of your blog is the same thing. The drop-down menu might be your notification which tell you when someone follows, comments or likes a post. I’m assuming that the follow button on the bottom right is the same.
