I love having followers, just like any other writer/blogger. But I want not just “followers”, but READERS who are not only willing to read or even (with luck) glance at my pages, but are willing to say something constructive about the piece.
If you notice on my page, you will see that my FOLLOWERS/Google Reader list’s numbers have dropped.
Because I went on and removed all those “followers” that were using me as a “look at how many I follow” tool, and those that spammed my pages with “I followed, now follow me back” BS.
If you are going to REALLY read my stuff and at least make an EFFORT to comment here and there, then by all means join my page! But if I’m just a tool or “numbers game” to you, then really, I do NOT want you to click the “Follow” button.
On ANY of my three blogs…
Or on my ParanorMel blog.
If you know me well, then you know me well enough to get it that I am not in to FAKE people, users or SPAMMERS.
So, if you are one of those three kinds, then please, don’t bother my page, get my hopes up or waste my precious time.
