I hadn’t been out of the house since I busted my foot – except to go to the doctor twice and take Little One to the vet. With the help of my sister.
So last night I got gussied up and the hub took me, my boot and the crutches out to dinner. Not because it was the one year anniversary of my blog, which it was, but because we had some money set aside for fine dining up in Traverse City, and since my bum foot forced us to cancel that trip, we decided to do some fine dining here.
Caesar salad followed by perfectly cooked and seasoned filet mignon, sweet potato casserole, a medley of lightly sautéed summer squash, zucchini and cherry tomatoes and a glass of wine, topped off with a service of truly delicious french press decaf. By service I mean served with a selection of cream, whipped cream, mini chocolate chips and hunks of raw sugar. Love that.
Yep, yesterday WordPress informed me that I registered my blog and published my first post exactly one year ago. Oooh I was mad that day.
But I don’t want to talk about that.
I want to talk about something I’ve noticed about blogging:
Someone will come along and like one of my posts and/or follow me.
I go check them out, see who they are.
Perhaps they are just looking for reciprocal followers.
They comment. Yay.
They comment again, on another post. Yay, yay.
They keep reading, they keep commenting. Yay, yay, yay!
Maybe we’ll become friends.
I follow them back.
I’m talking COMPLETE SILENCE. Not a dwindling of interaction, a complete dumping…. no more likes, no more comments.
I’m perplexed, but not in despair.
I wouldn’t even mention it except that it has happened several times more than once.
Anyone feel me?
Doesn’t that seem like a lot of work for a follow?
Perhaps they just like the thrill of the chase?
Perhaps they are catch-and-release fishers of follows?
Perhaps someone can explain it to me?
I’m only wondering ‘cuz yesterday was the one year anniversary of my blog….
