I don't get it...

Somethings I don't get about the blog world. This isn't directed at anyone and these are only my own personal opinions from a years worth of observation on my blog as well as others. 


"oh I love your blog!! want to follow each other?"
I get quite a bit of comments where ppl will tell me, "oh I love your blog!! want to follow each other?" I just don't get it. If you like it follow it, if not then no worries. I don't understand why I need to follow someone's blog just for them to follow me back. Maybe what bothers me about the whole thing is when the person adds, "I love your blog", I think if they just said, "want to follow each other?" I wouldn't have such an issue with it b/c then at least I would know their just looking to have a high GFC number.  I would hope that those who do follow me do so b/c they actually enjoy reading my posts and not because I follow them. Which by the way, if I'm following you it's because I enjoy reading your blog; and really, wouldn't you much prefer to have those kind of followers anyway instead of those that just follow for no other reason other than you following them? I guess to some it's a numbers game and that's fine too if you don't care if people actually read your blog or not, but to me I would rather have those that are genuinely interested. In fact, I would have to say about half of the bloggers I follow don't follow me back. And on some I'll comment on their posts but almost never receive a comment back and I'm ok w/ that, I don't follow them for their comments (although comments are great), I do so b/c I like their blog. Simple as that. However, I want to add that I think the percentage of those that follow others just to be followed back is small. Most bloggers put a lot of time and effort into their blog so I'm sure they would rather have the genuine followers anyway.

Blog link spamming
When someone comments on my blog, 99.9% of the time I will click their name regardless of wether or not they put a link to their blog. Also, when I was just starting out in blogging and looking for blogs to follow, I would just click on random people just because I liked the way their avatar pic looked or through other bloggers recommendations. Wether or not they had a link to their blog did not matter at all. So really, for those of you who will go on a bunch of different blogs and leave one word comments like, "nice!" and then a link to your blog, it's kinda aggravating and I'm sure I'm not the only one who see's it that way. I've seen some bloggers straight up post in their comments intro that if anyone leaves a link to their blog their comment will be removed. That's a bit harsh to me, but hey, it's their blog right? Even though I've only been blogging for a little over a year, I can only remember 1 or 2 times where I've left my blog link and even then I felt kinda silly doing so. I'm all for getting your blog out there and getting followers, but link spamming is not the way to go about it.


So, that's my little rant/outlook on that whole thing. I hope I don't lose any followers over my honesty. I definitely appreciate all of you who take the time to read my blog, it means a lot to me and for those that I follow, I may not comment on all your posts, but I definitely read almost all of them :)

I love your honesty! I can't lie, having followers and a good number is great but it shouldn't be the reason to start a blog. I started mine with the intention to just try it for me and if it worked it worked in the right way. Not me trying to bug people for follows. and spamming drives me CRAZY! I so agree with you!
