I love blogging and I love getting comments even more.
But I have to say: I only like comments of people who actually bother to read the post they comment on. And I absolutely hate comments like: ‘Hi, I’m a new follower, will you follow me?‘
Those comments, I throw straight into the trash. Just so you know!
Did you réád my post?!
If you’re a guest on my blog, and you want to tell me something, at least preténd you’re interested in me as a blogger, and not just as a would-be-follower. I took the time and effort to write something interesting and witty, so don’t just hit me up to follow you, because I won’t.
Which raises another sore subject with me: what’s with the craving for followers?! I feel GFC is like the emperor’s clothes: everyone is all enthusiastic about it, when in fact it’s an empty shell. I’ve got 478 followers, but it’s not like I have 478 visitors everyday! Not by a long shot. I’ld like to call out to my ‘followers’: where are you guys?! Am I moving too fast for you?
To sum up: I like my comments well thought out, friendly, and crispy on the outside.
How do you like yóúr comments?
And how do you feel about the Followers Myth?
