First I don’t like to use the word followers to me a follower has to have a leader. I don’t have one do you ? I prefer to use the word friends because in my world I think that is what we are becoming over time. For the purpose of this post though I will use the term followers. I was at a friends site yesterday and she lost all of Her followers for the majority of the day a lot of Her friends did as well but it was resolved by the end of the day.
For some reason the gremlins at WordPress take away about three of my followers every week. I now keep track of the number of blogs I follow and as of this morning that was 53. That may sound like a lot but I have followers who only post once a week all the way to a couple who post six or more times a day. That is a reasonable number for me to follow and catch up with every 24 hours. I do need help from you all. Every time I post I always without a doubt catch up with everyone within 24 hours. If you see I am not doing this let me know. You can just comment hey Bob you forgot about me or what ever you like in my comments box. Without that help it may be a week or more before I figure out who I am missing.
This part is just a FYI. Today I sign for my new apartment and with some help from my friend Hilary who works in the office my 18 day or so count down to complete my move starts. I have everything in place, My last obstacle was the painting of this place and Her husband is a contractor who hates to paint like most, but is doing me a favor and painting my old apartment. I have no idea if I can keep up or not during this time, if I can’t I wont post anything.
I decided to break this post into two separate ones. My next post in this area will be my highly conversational expectations of my followers. I have posted about this in the past but have also mellowed out a bit.
Update I just lost 15 more followers !!!!
