I was inspired by a friend’s post about following blogs and blog followers. You can find his post here.

We could not hide the fact that when we gain more followers, we are happy.  Either it means they truly love our blog posts and they would like to participate through comments and likes or they are those who are new in the blogging world and ask us to follow their blogs as well. Sometimes I return the gestures back when I read the content of their blogs and I like it.  There are bloggers who follow you just to promote their site with nary a like nor a comment on your posts. I wonder if they really read what you write. There are those who have deleted their accounts and would still follow you.There are those who just love to  link their sites to  yours but when you try to visit the sites, you would be surprised,  most if not all posts are ping backs. Sometimes I am in a quandary whether to approve those comments or not.

We could always control all those comments  by manually approving them, We could always choose who to follow. I don’t always follow those who follow me. I only follow more than a hundred blogs that I regularly read. Last night though, I learned that you could also remove followers that you are not comfortable with.  I started the process of visiting some blogs and  removed those I can’t even see when I clicked the links.  Never mind if I’ll have fewer followers in the process.  This is a work in progress and it may take sometime to check all those 2,800 plus followers that I have.

A few months ago, I learned how to block  some people who visited my site.  There were one or two that  I decided to block.  I must admit that  I am learning so much in this blogging world.  Sharing a bit of your life in cyber space takes courage but the happiness that you get through blogging, unleashing those lovely thoughts, putting into words those  ideas and feelings, giving vent to something you have encountered and do not necessarily agree to.

Blogging still.
