The stats say I have 575 followers on this here blog. I acquire a new follower almost every day. When y’all discovered my little blog and started leaving comments and following I was thrilled beyond words; so thrilled that I’m a little afraid to talk about it for fear of jinxing myself :-)
Lately I’ve been gaining a new class of follower: the advertiser. You know the ones, they follow a blog in order to get the blog writer to click over to their site to see WTF they’re following and it’s all an ad. Surely there’s a name for them?
The majority of these followers seem to be handsome young men from other countries who want to teach me how to write a better blog, make tons of money and enjoy life, all for a small investment in their blog. Srsly? How to those guys make money? Are they paid for every blog they follow? What’s their game?
Anyway. I guess I know my blog is a success, judging by the number of spam followers I have – they only follow the really popular blogs, right?
