How many blogs are you following? Probably too many, as I am. And I must complain here about a couple of blogs I follow where they seem to have two blogs and I get duplicates. It annoys me. Then there are the blogs that look really interesting, and they follow me, but they aren’t in English and unfortunately, being American, I don’t speak or read anything but English.
I also follow a few blogs, quite a few actually, that really don’t interest me for various reasons. Sometimes, while I might read these, I have no comment and no interest in responding. I can’t relate to some blogs; people looking for different things than I am. I follow them out of a sense of community, fair play, and support, not of interest. Is that wrong?
Then there are some blogs written by people with wildly different lives than I, but their writing is compelling. Their story is fascinating, and I have become more tolerable of grammar, syntax and spelling. An old pet peeve of mine, having been a bit of an “expert” up until a few years ago. I am much more tolerant now. I know some writers are writing for the first time in English, and others have not had the same education as me. And plenty of people just haven’t practiced their grammar since school.
I appreciate my followers greatly. Without followers why blog, right? I wonder though, am I boring some of you? Do all you wonderful followers read my blog daily, weekly, monthly, occasionally? Why do you follow? Out of some sense of obligation since they follow you? Or do you only follow those blogs that truly interest you and disregard the rest?
