It's not you...It's them.
Don't panic. If your Followers have disappeared from your blog...don't worry. They are still there...you just can't see them or access them. It is a Blogger-wide problem. Don't go into your html and mess around with things...it will not fix the issue. Looks like several Blogger Gadgets are not working.
If we find any further info from Blogger we'll let you know. If you have info on this we'd love to share it with everyone. Thanks!
UPDATE: As of 7:15 a.m. PST, Followers and other Gadgets seem to be back up and running. Let us know your experience here.
