Wavy cats and where have my followers gone?


Has anybody else suddenly lost some followers? I have lost 24 in a day which seems very strange unless blogger have suddenly decided to delete some unused blogs. I know some people who were regular visitors no longer blog or visit. Just wondered what is going on. Anyway if you are here then I am very glad to see you thank you.

I don't know if you have spotted that Little Claire is changing its name and logo. It will be called LC Designs and the new logo will be this lovely new wavy cats stamp. I think this will be a very popular stamp and I can see me using it a few times, I stamped it with Versafine ink as it gives a stronger image to the silhouettes. I used Sakura rose star and green star pens on the tulips so they are nice and sparkly. I kept it very simple using some LC paper and adding some MB die cut kittens. The sentiment comes with the stamp.

Yep, it's been a topic of conversations on our DT blogs over the weekend, we have nearly all lost some or even lots as have the challenge blogs, yesterday you could watch numbers diminish and we are thinking much the same as you Marianne.

Anyhow, I love the colour palette on your card and it's perfect for our Allsorts theme, many thanks for joining in.

My husband had a gardening blog and he's suddenly lost a lot too - I don't know whether I have on my own blog as being a Bloglovin fan I never look at my GFC follower list! But either it's a glitch or Google is clearing out dormant accounts.

Anyway, FAR more important is that your card is absolutely stunning! I can see I'm going to have to invest in that stamp!

Kelly Lloyd said...

Yes me too Marianne, I thought it was because of me being such a bad blogger of late but I guess not,
Your card is beautiful, I think I will be purchasing some of the lovely silhouette stamps in the new year :-)

Great card Marianne and that is a lovely stamp.
Yep, a few followers missing here too so it seems to be across the board - just wish Blogger would warn folk if they are going to have a 'tidy-up'(if it wasn't them, I'm not sure what has happened).
Have a lovely day.

A lovely card - the LC stamp is so cute! I hear a lot of people have noticed followers have dropped as mentioned I suspect a bit of 'Blogger housekeeping'.

Lovely card Marianne and I love the sentiment.
I too have lost followers, but I thought that is was because they no longer liked my cards!

I love this cat stamp. Love the design. I don't think Blogger is purging accounts it is more to do with they can't count!! my followers list has always had a discrepancy with the number field shown. I have lost 6 followers according to the front page but if I scroll to the last page I have 328 followers but 325 on the front. I haven't lost any icon piccys of my followers and the icons match the tally on the front page. There has always been a discrepancy with the numbering. I gave up trying to follow their logic years ago. I suspect they were doing a fix/upgrade on something else that has had a snowball effect. hope this helps. Hugs Mrs A.

Jane said...

I hadn't noticed so I went back to my blog and yes, I have lost 4 followers. Maybe as you say, blogger is getting rid of some unused blogs, it would make sense!
A beautiful card :o)
