A while back I migrated from wordpress.com to self-hosted WordPress (you can read about it here).
At the time I thought that the migration process would bring all my followers across, but it didn’t.
Well, today I found an option hidden away in the settings for JetPack that does exactly that, and I ran it. And now all my followers have been added back. Yay!
So, if you were previously a follower and haven’t heard from me in a while and now suddenly have, then that is why. 🙂
