I wrote a post similar to this awhile back and it took some heavy criticism from some of my followers. I still am ready to defend my position on the topic. This post is mainly for all the new friends I have gained since then and the old ones who ignored the last one, but they are for the most part gone. I am sure some of you will get upset about this post but I also believe each and every one of you has your own guidelines on all of your followers.
This is what I choose to do to every one of my friends post. I like every single one of them. For the most part if I didn’t like the work they were doing I wouldn’t be following their blogs. Sometimes I will run into a post that I highly disagree with and use the comments section to deal with that. I try to comment on as many post as I can, some don’t need a comment and some my lack of knowledge on the subject prevents me from commenting.
I normally take of from positing on Wednesdays and Thursdays to keep from getting burnt out on this site. I found it was getting to be too much like a job and not a hobby or a pleasure if I didn’t. I used to leave a message on my Wednesday post that said I will catch up with everyone who has caught up with me, that still applies. If I am gone for two days and you have ignored my last post I will ignore yours. I always have caught up with all of your post when I return from my days off. I just lost track of the days this week and forgot to take off.
I have friends who keep up with my post even when they may not post for a week or more I do appreciate you taking the time to do this.
OK here comes the part you all get a chance to take a shot at me. I don’t expect all of my friends to do all that I do. I have a lot more time than most of you. I normally only post 3 or 4 times a week so I am not a hard person to follow.
All I need is for my friends to simply acknowledge the fact that I exist. You don’t have to like my post or comment on them, If you want just type in one letter in the comment box that way I can see your name and know you are aware that I am here. I don’t think that is an unreasonable request at all. I know a couple of you are going to say you are too busy to do this even though you found the time to post yourself. I was with flicker for a couple of years and we used to call this fishing. Think about what you are doing to all of your friends you just slap up a post go back to your busy life and ignore most of your friends.
I have rambled on enough about this, you can either argue with my simple request or just unfollow me either way works for me.
