I have a few “follower” questions which I am hoping you can help me out with. I’m curious to know..
- Do you “follow” everyone who follows you?
- If so, why or why not?
- What about someones blog makes you want to “follow” them through EMAIL?
Here is my thing, I have many people who follow me (which I love!). I always try to follow people back unless something seems off about their blog or blog picture. I’m sure you know what I am referring too….those profile pictures that look like the person just got out of a prison camp haha. Anyway, lately I’ve been wanting to get more involved with my follower’s blogs. However, I have followed so many people out of respect for them following me, that I’m having a hard time finding the blogs that I legitmately followed because we shared something. Whether it be a mutual understanding, hobbies, photography, DIY, motivation, past hardships, etc.
I know the great majority of us want followers! 🙂 But at the end of the day, do we want a high number of followers who don’t all participate in our blog (or read it for that matter), or a lower number of people who do take the time to stop by and say hi or browse through our material every now and then. Here is my thing, I’m all about following people & following them back! If I’m being honest here though, I don’t foresee myself setting aside 20 minutes of my day to read about (example) comics, star wars, animated characters, etc. It’s not because I don’t appreciate your writing! It’s just that we are humans and by nature we are attracted to things that we personally find appealing.
The following people through email thing is something I’m considering cutting back on as well. I hate to say this, but to follow you through email I literally need to know you by first name and have a desire to know what’s happening on your page before I go to bed. I know I set this bar really high but again, I follow a lot of blogs and cannot do the same through email. I would be SWAMPED with updates. If only I had more time to read everything! 😦 Anyone else feel this frustration?
So friends….hoping you can help me out with these questions above! Thanks in advance. ❤
