For some bloggers followers are really important. For others it appears not so much. My followers are just under 50 at this point in time and I’m happy with that. Sure I’d like there to be more but I’m not planning on doing anything to increase the numbers except for be myself. Of course being so close to 50 could mean that I throw a celebration once I actually get there. Don’t hold me to it.
While I was blog hopping recently I noticed a few people with 800 plus followers. Now, I generally just follow blogs I’m interested in and figure there is no way I will ever have 800 plus followers. But I had this weird thought. How does the amount of followers a blog already has effect you? Do you follow people with a lot of followers or do you think well you have have a lot of followers then you don’t need me to follow you as well?
I’m not sure. I do think the that little people need to be supported more than the big blogs. But then maybe it’s just me feeling inferior around popular people.
So does the number of followers someone have change whether you follow them or not?
