What is/are "Followers" of blogs?

I plead ignorance - what are/is "Followers", (i.e.,Follow this blog) that I am beginning to see on blogs. And how does it differ from "Feeds" that lead to Bloglines (or something probably similar)?

Is is just another version of signing up for Bloglines/Feeds?

sighhhhh --- My "toDo' list is so long today, I cannot face it all, so I'm doing my best at "PROCRASTINATION!"

It should appear on your dashboard page when it is available to you (It wasn't available to me when it was first out). It does add them to google reader, but it also leaves a list on your profile page of who you follow so others can check it out without you having to list them on your actual blog. You can have them showing as followers on your blog or not, your choice.

I don't know about the 'followers', but I do know about procrastination. I'm supposed to be cleaning, and you see where I am.

I really don't know about the followers list except they show up as a list of posts that you can read on your dashboard. I recently changed my fav blogs from just a links list to that feedlist thingy and I really like it. So easy to check all the new posts.

I'm busy practicing my atrocious machine quilting on my PIF gifts. I sure hope the recipients aren't too disappointed with the results.

thank goodness Julie explained followers, only way of dealing is to plan for one job a day, however small or large that MUST be done. Extra is a bonus, less is unacceptable.

HI Elaine,
I don't know much about followers or blog lines but I am good at procrastination VBG. I do have some followers listed on my blog but they just sort of appeared on my blog (I am not that clear how) but they are very welcome to come and visit. There is lots to learn as a new blogger- people have been very kind and helpful to this newbie writer.

Good question, Elaine, and I learned something here too. There's a "follower" on my blog too, but I didn't know how it got there either, until Wanda commented. Procrastination is my middle name.

Hmmm... I don't know anything about Followers since I've been out of the loop of blogging. I like to know too.
