As many of you know, there have been some problems with Internet Explorer and the Followers widget on several blogspot blogs of late. This issue has caused an "operation aborted" message to pop up every time a visitor comes to the site when using Internet Explorer. When it first started to happen when I visited my own blog, I thought it was just a fluke. Then I started to hear about it at other blogs. There is an outstanding issue ticket for it in known issues on Blogger, but it is still being worked out. I had heard that removing the Followers widget might help and then some have said that if you move the widget to the bottom of the page it works things out.
This has all left me scratching my head about what to do (smile). I mean, I love the connections that I've made with all of the readers/friends that come to read my blog, so I don't want to remove my widget. There is the other option that I didn't mention, and that is to just view my blog with Firefox and I do that some too. However, everyone doesn't use Firefox all the time, so I wanted to make the best decision all around about what to do. Therefore, I've taken the path of moving the Followers widget further down the page and this has seemingly done the trick, so we shall see. I'm hoping that the issue is sorted out soon so that I can move the Followers widget back up top where it belongs. Until then, I'll look on the bright side, at least with the widget at the bottom, I can see everyone's face. That's cool to me! :-)
