Early this week Blogger stopped allowing me to not count my own pageviews.
i've seen the articles about how to work around this, but they aren't working for me, and in any case don't offer much hope of going back to the way it was before, though the hotlink to what was the option window is still in the same spot. It just pops up when i click and does nothing, until prompting me to "Try Again Later."
This seems to me to be artificially inflating the pageviews. i use the blogroll to access the blogs i follow, and regularly look at the pages to curate this blog. (Which means if a post looks different when you return to it, i've seen it on the page then made changes.)
i'll keep trying, but it looks like i'll have to live with this.
