It seems I do this all the time, I know. But nobody is listening.
Just this week I have had six more new followers who think that all they have to do is add a one-word comment to a post, then ask me to follow their blog in return.
It goes something like this.
First comment. ‘Nice’.
Second comment. ‘Follow me please’.
And variations of same.
This week, they have all been from India, for some reason. And they all have active blogs of their own too, though in most cases have just started them this month.
They still don’t seem to get that blogging is not Facebook or Twitter, and not all about ‘following back’ like we are some kind of electronic sheep. So I am now deleting these comments, and taking no notice of the ‘follows’. I have abandoned my usual practice of politely replying to those people, thanking them for following me, and replaced that by ignoring them completely.
Just so you know, whoever you are.
