When I opened WP this morning, I saw on the side column that I had now tipped over 8,000 followers
I checked the Insights, and these are the totals.
WP Followers. 7607
Email only followers. 44
Social Media Followers. 356
Regular readers will know that I always mark such milestones. The last time was when the number of followers exceeded 7,000.
As usual, I would advise everyone that the number means very little. Well over 2,000 of those were only trying to sell me something. Around another 2,000 or so only followed hoping I would follow back, then never looked at my blog again when I didn’t do that.
Far better to have 750 followers who read your posts and leave comments, than 20,000 who never look at your blog.
To all my genuine followers, old and new, I once again send my sincere thanks.
