Well, today WP notification told me that now 1001 bloggers follow my blob. In reality though, 1001 should be interpreted as a binary number which comes out to be 9. And that is about the right number of bloggers (out of 1001) who actively read and respond to my posts.

I am not complaining because I too follow a lot of blogs but respond to the few I really like. I guess that is the name of the game in this blog-world.

What is your experience? I would like to know.

I do thank all the 1001 bloggers who clicked Follow.

    Yes, congratulations. Well done.

    I used to get excited years ago whenever a new follower signed up, but now I don’t notice as much. I used to follow far too many blogs myself, and after a while, I realised the computer was taking up far too much energy and worse, I was not doing the things I love outdoors.

    The hardest part was trying to think up new comments when I particularly liked a blog and also in replying to other bloggers comments. I mean to say, there’s only so many words you can use when following some blogs for a few years. Headaches, neck & shoulder pain were starting to emerge again (like back in the days when I was working in front of a computer all day) and that was definitely the sign to slow down and change my physical & mental habits.

    When you have serious and chronic health issues that include daily pain and fatigue, you have to be self-disciplined in your daily routine.

    Even when you have good health, I think modern technology should be restricted to ‘x’ number of hours each week for a balanced and well-rounded lifestyle.

      Thanks Vicki. Yes, it takes too much of our time to sit in front of the computer now a days. I do not mind if I am doing some creative work like research, computations or writing and responding to a serious blog entry. But after a while we tend to use WordPress as FaceBook and that is when it becomes boring.

      Thanks again.

    I don’t have nearly as many followers. I usually see the same half-dozen people commenting on my posts, and about thirty or so “liking” my posts. I try to get around to others’ blogs, but it’s hard to do.

    • Dr_IQ says:

      Although I try to avoid comments like we do on Facebook but still mostly we just say thanks, cute, wow etc. I guess we should be discussing the issues being raised in the posts and issues we should raise. But old habits from Facebook and Flickr die hard.

        I’ve tried to provide more substantive comments at times, but doing so consumes a great deal of time. Perhaps our blogs are our communications with each other.
