We all get excited and happy whenever we get a new ‘follower’ in WP and also when the total count jumps.
It’s natural and part of the human mindset.
These followers ‘follow’ you for different reasons
✔Some are genuinely interested in the topic or niche you have chosen
✔Some follow you because of the same wavelength between you both in the communication matters
✔Some follow you because they expect you to return favors
✔Some follow you to get your attention regarding donation
✔Some follow you to sell their products
You can enlighten me further, if you find more reasons.
And I have 15 questions for you and I want you to be frank because this can clear doubts of many and can be helpful to all, as everyone continues their saga in the blogosphere
I know that every blogger is a King or Queen in their own way and need no explanation to give and are the deciding persons but still, I just wished to know the correct answers from people like you who are good in your observations.
#1. Do you ‘follow’ every blog that follows you?
#2. Do you ‘like’ the blog posts, though the subject is of not your interest, but still click the ‘like’ button for some of their posts because they regularly ‘like’ your posts and you don’t wish to displease them? Are you justified by your act?
#3. Do you ‘unfollow’ a blog, though they are following you? Any specific reasons? Too many posts or deviations from the original concept of the blogger?
#4. How do you respond to the bloggers, who ‘follow’ you and you in turn ‘follow’ them, but when you check their blog, you are surprised to note that it’s in a foreign language?
#5. If the blog is in a foreign language do you still attempt to check the post via Google Translate?
#6. Do you regularly check who all ‘unfollowed’ you, after ‘following’ you in the beginning? who is at fault?
#7. Are you the type, who is least bothered about who is ‘following’ or who has ‘unfollowed’ you?
#8. Did you any time get angry/helpless because nobody is following and you even decided to quit once for all?
#9. Are you able to join the discussion in every blog that you ‘follow’?
#10. What is the ‘ideal number of blogs humanly possible to ‘follow’ and join the discussion regularly?
#11. Do you check your WP statistics regularly and either get excited or depressed?
#12. What you have decided when you have exhausted the free quota? Do you go for a paid account or start another blog in a different name and transfer your hard earned ‘follows’ to your new blog?
#13. How frequently you donate or buy in the blogosphere?
#14. Are you not surprised that everybody is advising everybody in the blogosphere and how much these pieces of the advice having an impact on you and your life?
#15. At any time, somewhere in your mind, did you feel jealous, because you noticed that a blogger having 100 ‘follows’ getting 300 comments and you having 3000 ‘follows’ getting less than 50 comments?
I know my friend, too many questions and difficult to answer one by one.
Take it easy.
Inhale and exhale.
The human mind is too complex!.
Two quotes come to my mind about the human mind
“Our mental limitations prevent us from recognizing our mental limitation.” Dr Robert Burton
“The moment we think we know the answer, or even the question, we close down our options to explore & we can no longer find the things that we didn’t know to look for.” Sonja Blignaut
Thank you in advance.
