Blogger following limits

Pin It

Did you know that Google won't let you follow more than 300 blogs?  Well, they try to stop you, anyway.  If you have been in the habit of signing up to follow blogs by using the Add button under Reading List on your Dashboard - like I was - you will find that once you are following 300 blogs it won't let you add more this way.

But there is a way around it - and I wish I had known about it a long time ago - I would then have only used the "add" button for non-GFC sites and life would have been smooth sailing.  All you do to get around it is to follow new sites by clicking the Google Friend Connect "Join this Site" - most blogs have it and Google will just keep adding the sites merrily into your reading list even if you have more than 300.


  1. Yes, I was so happy once I figured this out! I was so upset when I thought I couldn't follow more than 300 people!!

  2. I found your blog through the GFC Blog Hop.

    That's good information to know. I don't think I'm quite following that many blogs, but I'm sure to get there some day.

  3. I didn't know that! Not that I'm following that many blogs (yet) - I always keep finding so many more to read though so will have to remember that for future reference! Stopping by from the Share the Love hop, you have some great tips here!

  4. I didn't know this. Thanks.
    and thanks for linking up to share the love blog hop

    Now following you on here and your other blog too

  5. Thanks for the information. I hit my 300 blog limit and was annoyed since I wanted to follow people back who had followed my blog.


Comments are welcome. I will answer questions as soon as I can.
