    Why is my brother-in-laws e-mail address being blocked from my Followers List? He has tried to Follow my blog and I received a message saying he was following my blog but he didn’t appear in my Followers List. We have tried three different times to get him on my Followers List and he never is added.
    “Note that this page will only show active followers. People who have not confirmed or who have blocked following will not appear” shouldn’t apply to him. His e-mail address is (email redacted). What can we do to get him added as a Follower?

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

    Thanks for your help.
    I see that Ii am subscribed to this topic is that the same as being subscribing to the thread or do I need to do something else?

    Hi there – He has to confirm the follow — his subscription is still pending because he hasn’t yet confirmed it. When he follows your blog, he should get an email with a button to click to confirm his follow. Once he clicks that, he’ll be all set. :)

    Let me know if you have further questions!

    Hi “eurello”,

    The last time we tried to get him on my list of followers I received a message telling me:
    “(email redacted) is now following Ron’s Notebook

    (email redacted) just started following you at http://ronsnotebook.wordpress.com. They will receive an email every time you publish a post. Congratulations. “

    When I check my Followers List, however, Roger isn’t listed. I just checked again for registered Followers from 6 days ago and Roger still isn’t listed.

    I’m beginning to wonder if he didn’t hit one or more keys that he shouldn’t have.

    I appreciate your help and I’m sure Roger does as well.

    Thank you.

    Hi Ron,

    His subscription is still pending. Did he get a confirmation email when he followed your blog? There’s a button in that email he has to click to confirm.

    Morning,

    I will have to check with Roger. He may have given up after the first two attempts failed to get him on my Follower list. I did a 3rd try for him so all he had/has to do is click on the confirmation.

    More info when I get through to Roger.

    Thanks eurello.

    Morning eurello,

    Thanks SO much for your help. Roger is now in my Followers list. I will keep an eye on the list to make sure Roger stays there. The first time he followed he appeared, then disappeared. Roger said that he may have picked the wrong options, but this time it appears all is well.

    Thanks again.

    Ron

    Hi Ron,

    Awesome! And I see he is confirmed now, not pending, so you should be all set. Let me know if you need anything else!
