My blog is called "Creative Smiles" because my designs are the result of incorporating mistakes. With fumble fingers that drop whatever they are holding - repeatedly, it takes a lot of giggles, smiles and creative patience during my crafting process. xx

***UPDATE*** - With the 2020 Blogger format, is your Blogger blog loading very slowly? Mostly in the sidebar? If so, THIS INFORMATION may be helpful.

Important Blogger Profile Options STEP-BY-STEP

Good Morning!
A quick STEP-BY-STEP on how to enable your profile and help your blogging friends find your personal blog(s). It especially helps bloggers return the favor of leaving a comment on your own blog when you have left a comment on theirs.

1. Go to your Blogger Dashboard (the "draft side" of your blog)
2. On the left, scroll down to settings and click on the little gear.
3. Click on BASICS just under the gear.
4. On the right, under BASIC, click on PRIVACY and click on YES to both those questions.
5. Click on SAVE CHANGES.

Now, Stay in Settings and scroll down to USER SETTINGS. It is the last setting option on the left..

2. Click the box for SHARE MY PROFILE (very important).
3. Show my email address (use your preferred email address)
4. Select blogs to display (click on that)
5. UNCHECK any boxes that are not your personal blog. That way, when visitors see your profile, they will know exactly what your personal blog is, and not have to figure out if it is one of the others.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Donna, apart from the fact that not only my personal blog was checked everything else was okay. My problem is that when I want to follow somebody's blog I cannot see anywhere on their blog to do so. What I have to do is add your blog address to my reader list manually. That means I do get your posts showing up on my reader list but my name/picture does not appear on your followers list. I really don't know what to do about this. Do you have any suggestions?
