"Me too! I also have few enough followers that I check out all the new ones and look at their blogs, if they have one! "

"I NEVER follow a blog when someone says "follow me"...even if they say "if you like"...I think it's the same as shamelessly self promoting...when someone leaves a genuine comment on my blog without even linking their blog…"

"I tend to avoid 'follow parties' mostly because I don't want to follow a blog that I don't want to read again. But I DO surf around the links on a follow party, as I find them, to see if there's anything I like. Then I…"

I've noticed a real difference between the way British and American bloggers promote their blogs. It seems that whilst American bloggers happily post a 'follow me i'll follow you' thread, UK bloggers tend to be a lot more discreet in their blog's marketing. This is in no way meant to sound offensive - I just found it interesting and wondered what other bloggers thought.

Hi there and welcome from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time. Don't be too overwhelmed by MBC. The ladies are awesome here and sooo embracing. Hope you enjoy your stay :)
