I am a bad, bad, blog follower. I have great intentions. I click JOIN SITE with an excitement for gleaming raw and glorious information from my fellow bloggers. My problem? I don’t know how to organize myself. I don’t know what the heck I’m doing. I’m a complete mess.
I follow quite a few blogs, I do. And that’s a problem, I know. I always think I will remember which blogs radiated the most and be able to find them again, but I can’t. I need a better way to figure this blog following thing out. I suck at it, but I don’t want to. I don’t wanna suck. I want to be a good follower. No, scratch that, I want to be an AWESOME follower! Not just a face that sits on your site and who never reads you (I have those on my site as well and it BLOWS). And scanning through so many blogs to find you, well, that's tedious. I feel overwhelmed.
AND I WANT TO READ YOU. I do. I swear.
I want interaction. I want connection.
I want to stalk you completely in a non-creepy way.
So, here’s the solution I’ve came up with, my fellow bloggers and followee’s, leave me a comment. Just drop a line or two and say, “Hi, there, Angela. Come support my blog by leaving enormously long comments. Tell me how I’m doing. Encourage me and tell me a joke, if you’d like. Let’s be more than faces on a blog. Let’s interact, let’s be pals.”
AND guess what?
I will! I will be your pal. I’ll be the best darn pal you’ve ever had! Even if I'm already following you, leave me a comment--your blog will be moved up the blogging status. I will read you MORE.
I will take your blog information and put it in a folder on my Google Reader that says: THE BEST DARN BLOGS EVER! And I will check that folder weekly for update. I promise. (Expect this coming week in which I will be in lovely HAWAII—more to come about that—but otherwise, I’m yours. Completely. Starting the middle of April). All other blogs will still be there in my reader, but first reads will go to those in the THE BEST DARN BLOGS EVER! folder.
So, join my BEST DARN BLOGS EVER! by commenting below. Simple. Easy.
Let’s be pals. Let me stalk you with love.
AND, if you know someone who could use a good stalking, tell them to pop over and add themselves to the list too. The more the merrier.
