I have found it easy that when I am following someone to leave a short comment on their page..like "Stopping by from MBC Follow Me Club to follow and say hello". With all the members here and new ones all the time, by doing this I am assured a response and or follow.
Plus I super appreciate it when the same is done for me, that way I never miss returning a follow. I do not have time to always look through my followers list and when I do, not all the profiles have the followers blog even listed, just a list of who they are recently following. How am I supposed to follow you if I can not find you?
I think if we all left a tiny comment when we follow someone we would have less confusion about who is following who. Just my little tip to share :)
