Number of email followers widget vs. site stats

    I can’t figure this out. According to the widgets I have 54 WordPress followers and 78 Email followers. When I go to the site stats, it also states 54 WordPress followers, but 0 Email Only followers. Is it possible to find out where the 78 followers and the email addresses of those followers? I’m assuming 54 are the same 54 WordPress followers and there are 24 from somewhere else? Is this wrong? A little help would be great and very much appreciated!

    The blog I need help with is



    That number of 78 followers refers to your 54 wordpress followers combined with any followers you have on social media accounts you have connected via publicize (e.g. facebook, twitter, etc). The widget allows people to follow your blog via email but does not give the number of email followers. That you can only find in the stats page, so if the stats page says you have 0 email followers then that’s what you have.

    We do not have access to the emails of people who follow our blogs. The only time you will see someone’s email is if they comment on your blog and you have the option enable that commenters must provide their emails in order to leave a comment.



    Thanks so much, that makes perfect sense now. I appreciate the help!
