Today I added the Followers gadget back to my sidebar.
It was removed because so many visitors, and MYSELF, received "Operation Aborted" messages when trying to access my site.
Blogger first said the problem was the Followers gadget, so I removed it.
Then I was advised it was conflict with Internet Explorer, v7 and v8. Sorry I don't have access to version 6. I am reluctant to confuse my computer with two browsers but many do. I have to have IE to get Windows Update. But this advice was certainly believable, a la past experience with Microsoft products.
I removed my fish tank gadget.
Nothing seemed to help.
Arkansas Patti suggested I make the Comments section a separate page which appeared to solve the problem. Not my preference, but if it brings peace, let it be.
VOILA!!! It seemed to have worked.
Several viewers have asked where the Followers gadget is, so I have added it back in--hope it resides in peace. It is located far down on the sidebar, a suggestion of blogger. However, the gadget had NEW beside it so maybe there was some revision, who knows!
