Can't believe I've done this....
I was trying to work out how to follow someone else's blog - and have now managed to follow my own!!! Hilarious, if a bit desperate looking! I'm honestly not chasing visitor numbers that hard... and anyway meglomaniacs don't count (lol)
So, if anyone knows how to remove oneself as a follower from one's own blog, I'd be eternally grateful for the knowledge - it doesn't seem to be a 'help topic'.
