Am I the only one that likes finding obscure blogs? When I come across a blog that already has 1200 followers or 25 comments on every post I get a little turned off. Of course there are some exceptions. But as a general rule for me I like finding great new blogs. I don't know why this is.
I am the same way with following people on Twitter. The only people I follow on Twitter with thousands of followers are people like Oprah. I'm also this way with discussion forums - unless it's something I feel I MUST respond to I'm generally not interested om replying to something that others have already responded to a million times. I have no clue why this is. All I know is that's the way I am.
Perhaps a part of me wants to know I'll be noticed and my follow will be appreciated. Maybe I want to know my tweets and comments will actually be read. That's not so bad is it??
Am I hurting myself in the long run? Can this be bad practice for my own blog? Am I the only one who likes "discovering" amazing blogs?
