Do You See Two of Me?



Some of you may have noticed that I'm following your blog twice. I am, but not really. To make a long story as short as possible, I recently changed my email address. The only problem was that Blogger/Google didn't like me using a second Gmail address with my Blogger account. When it was all said and done, I finally got my new email address associated with my Blogger account, but it treated it like a totally new profile and I lost my "following" list with the original profile and email. Even though my original email address/profile has been deleted, that profile still shows up on some of your friends lists. Why it wasn't removed when the original profile was deleted is beyond me. I had to go back and follow your blogs with my "new" profile (so stupid). So that's why you may be seeing two of me following you. I don't have a twin and I'm not a creep, perv, or stalker...just so we're clear!


And while I'm on the topic of Blogger, I have a minor rant. Has anyone else been having problems lately when viewing or commenting on other blogs or even when working on your own? I've had tons of "time outs" and problems getting blogs to load recently. I don't know how many times I've typed a comment on a blog and when I tried to post it, the page would time out and stop loading. It's very frustrating and it only happens with Blogger related sites. It's like their servers are slow, overloaded, or both.


Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there. I feel better now.


Stupid Google.


Okay, now I feel better.

LOL!!! Okay, so you're not our biggest fan (by signing up twice) and you're not a stalker or perv. You just have a split personality or alter-ego! Sure, blame it all on Google... We know - we're watching you now... TWICE!

So you don't look like a psycho, I went ahead and removed "original" BJK from my follower block. "New and improved" BJK is free to move about on his own now without his doublemint twin shadow...

I haven't noticed any problems with Blogger on other blogs. And feel free to stalk my blog. ;)

Ha...you perv!

I'll be honest, I haven't had any issues with blogger recently, either on my blog or on others. I was a little while back, but when I switched my comments to a pop up window format, they went away. They must just pick on people with new email addresses or something...

Blogger has been pretty good to me recently - keep the problems down there!

And, I don't care if you follow 8x - I'm couting each one!

I am not going to make a comment about Blogger and/or Google because knowing my luck, the exact opposite of what I say will start to occur right after I type it...

but I will say that you can follow my blog as many times as you like ;-) I dont' mind at all, lol!

Blog looks great Brian...I have problems at times, then it runs smooth, when it acts up it's a real pia...following me twice is kool w/me...look at it this way, at least you didn't follow your own blog in error like I did, I still can't get my ID off my own list for some blogger reason

Emily said...

LOL! I was wondering - just figured you really liked all of us and wanted to read everything twice. Like the others have already said - feel free to follow follow.

I did have some issues with blogger yesterday, but just thought it was my computer.

Mel said...

Like Kari, I am almost afraid to say anything about Blogger. I have had really good success with them. (Knock on wood!). I notice that you were a following my blog twice. Thought you were probably trying to help me "bump up" my numbers. Wanted to thank you personally for that.

Trey said...

Ok with me. I neeed all the followers I can get!

heyBJK said...

LOL! Well, it seems y'all don't mind both of us following you! haha! I'll resume my stalking of your blogs then! I am a huge fan of all your blogs!

I haven't followed myself yet, Dennis, but I may do that when my follower number gets stuck for too long and I want to change it!
