Troubleshooting: How to Unfollow

Ok now I swear this was a fucking headache in a can but I finally found a way to get rid of all these dormant blogs I was following. I thought it would be easy, there was a button beneath the reading list that said "Manage" took me to a page where I thought I could easy unfollow/unsubscribe to these blogs. WRONG. I clicked "stop following this blog" and nothing happened. Ummm ok something's not doing it's job right. So of course I googled "I can't unfollow a blog on blogger!" and some forums popped. I would say the only thing helpful about the forums were that I got a chance to see that  I wasn't dumb as a doorknob because other people where having the same problem as me exactly. Every detail. So I had to figure out a way myself. I had to log in log out. Nothing was working. I was getting irritated. THEN I figured out how to unfollow/unsubscribe and I had to write this down so I wouldn't forget it in the near future. I went to manage blogs I'm following (that's a given) and then I clicked "Settings" next to the blog I wanted to unfollow/unsubscribe. After that (since I had unfollowed it plenty of times before but it didn't work) I followed the blog. After I followed the blog I clicked "Settings" again and this time I went to "Stop following this blog" (that's a given) and this time it worked. I only had to follow the blog (or one of the blogs you were trying to unfollow if it was more than one) once then I could unfollow the other ones the usual way. Maybe I can makes some easier steps. Hope this helps anyone else who comes across it.
Step by Step: (after you're on the "Blogs I'm Following" screen)

  1. Click "Settings" next to the blog you want to unfollow.
  2. When the window pops up, follow the blog.
  3. Repeat step 1, this time click "Stop following this blog"
  4. Now the blog should be unfollowed and off of you reading list. If they is more than one blog you want to unfollow, repeat step 3 with those.
Woo, now I have to remember this haha.
