Quick question...

I'm going to write a blog post soon.. We are doing great, just for the record. We had a great mini-vacay too ;)

I have a blog showing up on my feed that I'm NOT following. I even followed it, then unfollowed to take it away. I can't read it.. It's not in English or any other language I speak, lol. Is it spam? I'm confused.

My twitter has been hacked, but it's not tied to this at all. I don't even use twitter, I just have an account... And it keeps following all these bizarre twitter-ers. <--- see. I don't even know what they're called lol.

So, how do I fix it? It's posting like,  a ton of blogs each day and that's all I can see on my blogger dash board.

Thanks in advance!


  1. Hi Elle, happy to hear things are going well with you and Fireman and that you had a wonderful mini vacation. Looking forward to hearing more from you :)

    I'm sorry but I'm no help with the blogger issue. I'm sure you will get plenty of advice from some of the others and hope you manage to resolve it soon.


  2. Hey Elle, have you gone into your dashboard to look into the problem? Have you also clicked your profile while out of your dashboard, like clicking your name at the end of your post here? You may have to visit both to make sure you have deleted that blog. Other than that, I am not sure, sorry. :( Email me if I can help more.

  3. Glad to hear things are going well! I bet the mini vaca was so much fun! As for the blogger issue, I'm sorry I don't have any advice - but I hope you figure it out. :)

  4. Hi Elle,

    Sometimes when a blog you were following gets deleted, someone else picks up the name and starts a new blog. Same URL but totally different contents.

    To unfollow a blog:

    On your Blogger dashboard is your Reading List. At the top of your reading list, click on the Gear icon on the right side – "Manage Reading List”.

    Click on “Settings” beside the blog you wish to remove

    In the window that appears, click on “stop following this site”. You may need to maximize the window in order to see it.

    Hope this help!

  5. Hey honey :) glad to hear from you :) happy things are going so well.

    Sorry haven't got a clue as I'm always on war path with blogger myself. But try asking Hermoin she's always good at this stuff, she's got a wealth of knowledge :) hope you get it sorted out x

  6. Hey Elle...

    I think one of blogs you are following got hacked. If so, you can stop it pretty easily. You just need to identify which of the blogs on your reading list has been taken over, then delete it.

    Here’s the easiest way to do it: on your dashboard page just select each of the blogs in turn that are listed at left under "Reading list." Once the spam shows up you've found the culprit. Delete that blog and voila!

    BTW, I had this happen with a blog called ‘frog and lily’ that had hijacked the following blog:

    Let me know if you have any questions.
