Does the new Blogger Follower gadget remind anyone else of the dreaded Homecoming Queen voting in high school? You know, you want to know how popular you really are, but you don't want to have to face the reality that you might not be as popular as you think in your own little world that you really might be, but only if nobody tells you otherwise... but you kind of want to know.
Maybe it's just me.
So anyway, since it became available I've been waiting to see my many followers roll in. Thanks to all - ahem - 9 of you very brave and a little bit crazy souls!!
I don't really understand the protocol of it. Is it like the blogroll, where I feel bad if I don't include everyone who has ever been to my blog and left a comment?
Is it supposed to replace the blogroll? Because if you have both, isn't that a bit redundant? Aren't you saying that these up here are the blogs I FOLLOW, but these down here are the blogs I LIKE. You see how that could get kinda messy really quickly.
SO this morning, I did the only thing I could do. I added everyone I know to the "blogs I follow" list. Seriously. If somehow I missed you, ( and I know you) and you would like to be added to my following list, just lmk.
( fyi, it won't add private blogs. I tried.)
And if you have any ideas on how the thing is supposed to work, feel free to lmk that, too.
And PS, I'm voting for ALL of you for Homecoming Queen, too. All of you.
