I don’t know about you, but yesterday was the most fun I’ve had here since I started blogging. The response to my post on spam-likers was simply amazing. Nothing near “Freshly Pressed” standards, of course, but apparently I touched a nerve. There was conversation. There were likes. I had my first spoof-post based on one of mine (thanks, Daniel 😉 ) and I got one-hundred-and-one views in one day – first time ever! Thanks to everyone who joined the party
I’m also psyched about two new followers (yeah, I celebrate the little things – it’s important). Welcome to The Dancing Writer and The Parasite Guy (excellent names, by the way). I hope you enjoy it here.
(Okay, I actually got four new followers, but two were the very type of spam followers I was discussing in my post – ironic, huh? I was really a bit amused at one’s page: he writes on his “About-page” that he is twenty-two years old. Then he writes that for the majority of his life he had been doing what most people do, namely going to school and getting a job. I don’t know if you can use the phrase, “majority of my life” if you’ve only been out of high school for four years, but I digress.)
And what with reading their blogs, and looking up commenters and likers I discovered a few promising blogs for me to follow as well.
Of course, now I feel like a total hypocrite every time I press “Follow” or “Like”. Oh, the joys of living in my head 😛
Update: A moment ago I got my fiftieth follower on WordPress. And while a number of them are spam-followers, I still like the round number and the little trophy in the notifications, so I’m bragging about it (yeah, today’s all about me 😉 ). Thanks to Ann from Mind Over Coffee for helping me reach this goal.
