In case you didn’t know, WordPress has a feature that enables you to invite other bloggers to follow your blog.
Since I started blogging in 2012, I have never once ‘agreed’ to follow anyone who has contacted me in this way, and I still get around five a week on average. The people who use this facility are usually innocent of the implication, I am sure. But nontheless, they expect me to follow their blog without so much as a ‘Like’ or comment on even one of my own posts. In many cases, the blogs are brand new, with little or no content, so I have no idea what I might even be following.
I think WordPress should remove this general facility. If I want to follow a blog, I will find it eventually.
I have ignored no less than three of these already today, though part of me feels sorry for those bloggers who think it might be the normal thing to do.
