Followers not showing up in Internet Explorer
There are times that the Followers widget will not show up in Internet Explorer. I recommend you switch browsers to Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari, or any other browsers.

Sometimes the issue of Followers widget not showing up is a matter of allowing the browser to finish loading the page.

If all else fails
Go to Blogger Help.
