See on the left side all the followers? There are 122 listed, not to mention any that follow me privately - to ashamed to let your name be associated with me? Good, my job is done. My blog is not for everyone, I know that, but I am unique just like everyone else. I do know that probably on 10 to 15 percent of those names actually follow me and fewer even comment. That’s okay, too.
However there are some that I wonder why? In going over the list the other day I noticed some of you are very religious and blog about it regularly. That’s okay with me because I am not offended by your beliefs, but I have to wonder why in God’s name you follow me.
Some of you are poets and, though your prose are great, I just don’t have the time, interest or smarts to understand poetry (unless it more like There was a lady from Cass who had a dimple in her ass… - that kind of stuff.)
Some of you have hundreds, some thousands of followers, so why me? And some of you get hundreds of comments, so what could I say that means anything?
I do follow (lurk) many of you and never comment because there is nothing to say. Everyone has said it already.
And some of you have stopped blogging or blog so infrequently that I just don’t go there anymore.
But the ones that are bugging me the most are those of you who are followers that I cannot find. You have no blog or your name on you picture does not carry me to a blog. So WHO ARE YOU?
Now, as I said before, if you don’t want the world to know you follow me, I can understand that. And if you prefer to say anonymous like this, that’s okay, too. But I would appreciate it if you would email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell me something about yourself and how I can read your stuff, if you have a blog. And to tell my why you follow me when you don’t blog. How do you know me?
Here is a fast list:
Lígia Guerra - Darning you are from Brazil - and your bolg is in Portuguese. Do I look like I can speak or read Portuguese? Didn’t think so. So why are you following me?
Thanks in advance for contacting me…and for following (if you still do).
