Today I received the 1000 followers badge, and for a blog that is relatively new and does not post regularly, I am somewhat bemused. Most readers arrived here after my featured, apocalyptic post: Metamorphosis: the end is beginning. The ‘Freshly Pressed’ badge that one can display after such a spotlighting, draws in followers like bees to a honeypot, but often without the reciprocally fulfilling relationship.
Some followers are time wasters, self publicists or advertisers and thus make a mockery of the stats and number crunching. I wish there was a way of sifting them out! Others could pinpoint me in the way of a mutual arrangement but fail to fill in their follow-up links and details. My advice therefore is to Get a Grip on Your Gravatar
Best of all are the people who stop by to like, read and comment on my posts. You know who you are and for that I really do thank you.
And since this is also the 1st of November, now is a good time to reach more readers and read more writers. Hence I’m giving it a go on NaBloPoMo circuit and aim to post a one a day for the rest of the month – it was either that or grow a moustache for Movember .
