Followers are a blogger’s street cred.I was following a lot of blogs. A lot. And they didn’t follow me back. This hurt me. So I clicked “unfollow”. It's like they didn't even want me to succeed.
I need you to follow me. Because I really need more followers. See over there, where the little heads are? That number is too low. I am embarrassed. I need you to click on Follow This Blog. That number needs to be much higher.
For (ahem) my book deal.
Follow me, and I’ll follow you. It’s a win-win, even if you don't have a blog.
Edited to add: Do I need to bribe you with some junk from my house? Just say the word.
Edited again to add: I still subscribe to hundreds of blogs in my reader. And I'm thankful for all the little heads who are following me. Are you sure you don't want some junk from my house?
Edited again to add: If you want, you can follow me anonymously. I won't even know it's you.
Edited again to add: Just follow me, dammit.
