What Inspires You to "Follow" a Blog?
First off, let me say that I am pleased, tickled pinked, humbled and honored to have you here!
From June to August my "followers" have doubled! That's right---doubled. Don't get me wrong, though the numbers are comparatively "modest", I think it's still a positive statement. And I'm thankful.
In June, my official count reflected "33" ---and I remember thinking when I hit "fifty", how nifty! Oh boy---I was on cloud nine.
Anyhow, it caused me to ruminate and reflect---what factors cause you to actually follow a Blog?
Come on, I wanna know...
Some of you have few amidst your roster, others have dozens. I've sometimes taken a peek. :-)
With thousands, maybe millions of Blogs in the blogosphere, how do you choose whether to be a "regular" as opposed to a casual, infrequent "spectator"?
Is it the design?
The personality of the writer?
Is it a reciprocal thing? In other words do you follow others as a courtesy of them following you?
Educate me. Consider this a poll on human behavior or a blog building discussion amongst friends.:-)
