    There are some kind of blogs keep showing in Blogs I Follow. They’re like animation blogs which I never see or follow. When I go to Edit List, there is none of them in my list too. And when I click on one of them, it also says I’m not following it. And no one also reblogs it too. They’ll appear for quite a while and gone. What is this?

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

    From what I can see, you’re following every blog that appears in your reader.

    Specifically, what is the URL of the post from the blog you aren’t following?

    Thank you for your attention. The blogs I’m not following are
    http://theegoco.wordpress.com – The Ego Co.
    http://colorsunited.wordpress.com – Colors United!!
    http://iwillfearnoevil.wordpress.com – I Will Fear no Evil
    http://inventorymaintance.wordpress.com – inventorymaintance

    I didn’t copy the specific URL code of the post, sorry. Now they’re all gone again. It happened twice.

    Oh, they all disappeared again? That explains why I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary.

    If it happens again, would you please reply immediately with the URLs of the unwanted blogs?

    Are you following any Tags? Seems to me there is a follow Posts with a specific Tag – I get some strange results from time to time in my reader here from Tags being followed

    Yeah, that is a strong possibility. Tag misuse is, and will probably always be, a big problem, blasted human nature and all. :(

    @macmanx – I just look at them as a mystery gift or something like that – I find it amusing at times the strange tagging

    I don’t think I’m following any Tags…Or if there is, I might have done it accidentally. How can I check it? Lol, it’s that mystery? Sounds interesting.

    Anyways, if it happens again, I’ll send you the URLs immediately (they’re always from these four blogs, I don’t know why, maybe Tags following? And why did they disappear?). Thank you :)
