    For the last week or so, I have stopped receiving emails when people like my blog. I checked my Settings and they are still set to receive emails after comments and likes.

    Today someone followed me (and I got a WordPress email saying they followed) but the total no. of followers did not change in my stats.

    Hoping someone can help!

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

    I am having the follower count problem too. It seems that older followers drop off to make way for the new followers. The total number of pages of followers hasn’t changed so each time I get a new follower the oldest follower on the last page just disappears. Seems others are having this problem too. Maybe a hang-over of the issue a few days agao where all followers disappeared for many people???

    Alarmingly I have noticed that 2 of the followers that have been pushed off my last page by new followers have re-followed, ie, appeared as new followers. I hope their following wasn’t removed and they’ve clicked follow again. I have had about 50 new followers over the last 2 or 3 days!! I’d hate to have lost 50 old timers. :(

    I only had 70 followers when this started- but they were steadily mounting and I wondered why they stopped! It would be hard to lose 50! Is there anything we can do?

    It seems to be resolved for me now so thank you to whoever sorted it out. And I really don’t think this was a browser issue. I woke up this morning and on all devices I tried the count was as it should be and my old followers were returned to my last pages.
