A while ago I reached 700 followers and at the time I was like “WOW! That’s crazy.” but now as I think about it, I recognise that it hasn’t really effected me in a way where it makes me incredibly happy. Obviously, I’m pleased that so many people like my blog, and find it interesting enough to follow, but I really don’t mind about the follower count.
I feel like I should be caring, like I should feel over the moon and have smiles and smiles, but blogging is what I love to do, and I don’t think that my love for blogging should be limited to my follower count. It doesn’t reflect the effort that I put into blogging, and doesn’t determine how much I like talking to other bloggers.
And I’m sorry if this post makes me seem like I don’t appreciate people following my blog, I do.
I thank you all for 700 followers because it never crossed my mind that this would happen and it does shock me that so many people would want to follow my blog, however that doesn’t determine my love for blogging and how much I care about my friends online, nor does it reflect me as a person. I think that too many people care about follower count and whether their blog is “popular” and “well-known” and if it reflects them.
Thank you for 700.
