Recently my publisher, WordPress, informed me that I now have over five-hundred followers, now to some that is a drop in the ocean, but to me, it is nice. I have been writing for a long time, since 4 May, 2012. I am impressed, because I do not chase people and I don’t collect numbers. On my page and on all of my Social Media sites, I do not proselytize for followers. I don’t ask for followers on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram; if someone follows me, I will do the same.
I believe in the concept of quid pro quo, and I always marvel at how someone will want to follow me, and then not like anything I have ever written or posted. If that is the case, why bother? Are people so self-absorbed that they think, because they have deigned to follow me, that my life is now blessed?
I have to admit that I have really found some very interesting people since I have started blogging, some I may never meet in person, but I feel that I know them enough to call them a friend. Some of us follow each other on multiple sites, and I must admit that I must get back to Twitter a bit more, because I never know if the one of the World Leaders may wish to chat with me.
