I always have high hopes when I follow a person. I try to search for other women who blog (esp moms) because I want to read and share blogs but so often find they don't return the follow. I just want everyone to know that if you decide to follow me, I check my followers daily and always follow back. I also return all comments left on my blog site, so be sure to post your own site address so I can check it out and return the favor!
Julie - I hear you....when you know that you are a good person, blogging about real and good things, it hurts just a bit when you don't get the follow back. One suggestion that I have is this: when you find someone to follow, send them an @reply...it will give them a second nudge that you are following them AND it gives you the opportunity to say 'Hi! I like your blog (or something even more specific).' This makes you a real person, gives you a voice...
Try it out and let me know how it goes! By the way, you have THE most fantastic name...evah!
Hello guys! I'm so glad I came across this discussion. I am brand-new to blogger and didn't know that it was rude not to follow. We have a online community of moms helping other moms (like a charity without the money!!=) so I never thought it was appropriate to follow individuals....you guys have given me food for thought...not sure what to do now! Anyhow, as moms, I'd love it if you came over and read our message...www.passitonbaby.blogspot.com
