Follow Me... I DARE YOU!

I love having followers, just like any other writer/blogger. But I want not just "followers", but READERS who are not only willing to read or even (with luck) glance at my pages, but are willing to say something constructive about the piece.

If you notice on the left of my page, you will see that my FOLLOWERS/Google Reader list's numbers have dropped DRAMATICALLY.


Because I went on and removed all those "followers" that were using me as a "look at how many I follow" tool, and those that spammed my pages with "I followed, now follow me back" BS.

If you are going to REALLY read my stuff and at least make an EFFORT to comment here and there, then by all means join my page! But if I'm just a tool or "numbers game" to you, then really, I do NOT want you to click the "Follow" button.

On ANY of my three blogs...



Or on my newest creation, The "Mental"-ist Mom.

If you know me well, then you know me well enough to get it that I am not in to FAKE people, users or SPAMMERS.

So, if you are one of those three kinds, then please, don't bother my page, get my hopes up or waste my precious time.

Wow, ouch. I wonder if you are talking to me. I follow a lot of blogs- and I know that I don't read all of them every day...or honestly, sometimes not even every week. I try.

I read you but don't often comment. I use google reader and when you have a new post I jump over here to see what is going in your blog world.
Sorry I don't comment enough.

Sometimes it is best that I don't. Like the whole Bible thing turned me off so I left. No reason to comment it's your blog and your world. To each their own I say. So I know on the two days you do that I won't be around.

Hopefully you'll still let me in on the other days because I enjoy your writing.

Right On! That's how I like to see my button, used by strong women! Dare all those people to show some genuine interest and respect you as a writer, mother, and fellow blogger!

Also, to brighten the day, I have awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award because I think you ROCK, and are great friend. Plus, you have so many interests and you have lots to say which I LOVE.

Just stop by here...

for more info!

AubrieAnne... Thank you so much! To say I'm versatile is maybe even an understatement, huh? lol.

Margaret... I'm sorry you don't care for and are turned off by the Bible Q&A.. Where even I myself QUESTION the Bible. I'm not a hard-core, Bible thumping Christian. Believe me, many "real" Christians don't care for me and my views on the way I choose for MYSELF to believe and "practice"...I will ask you to at least give one or two posts a try just to see what I'm talking about where my beliefs are concerned. You may be pleasantly surprised.
