For the record, I am deeply appreciative of all of my followers (The genuine ones, of course).
Having followers will make any blogger feel as though they have not wasted their time publishing blog posts in the blogosphere.
However, followers are human beings and some of them are genuine, while there is a portion of them with some type of hidden agenda.
Have you ever thought about the reasons why people have followed your blog?
Well, I have and that is the reason why I have asked, “Why are you following my blog?”
And, most of you who have followed my blog and are reading this, will no doubt, tell me the reasons why you have chosen to follow Renard’s World.
So, let us get down to business!
You Have A Genuine Interest In The Topics That I Post
From a logical perspective, it would be crazy of you to follow a blog that you are not interested in. So, I can safely say, “You enjoy the topics that I post here on Renard’s World.”
Those of you who have been following this blog from day one would know that I have ventured deeply into:
- Blogging tips.
- Social media.
- Technologically-related things; such as operating systems, computers, tablets and smartphones.
Now, those are the topics that I post mostly on my blog; but do keep in mind, that this is not a blog that specializes in a niche; it is one that deals with topics of a miscellaneous nature (Which is the reason why the tagline for Renard’s World is: My Personal Space On The Web To Post Anything That Tickles My Fancy).
As a matter of fact, this is my blog; therefore, I will continue to publish content based on the things that I am genuinely interested in.
I truly hope that you are the type of blogger who has a genuine interest in the topics that I post.
You Followed Me With The Hopes Of I Following You
To be most honest with you, I am not interested in the “You follow me and I follow you back” game.
The only reason why I am going to follow your blog is if it contains topics that I am interested in (Luckily, a lot of you dealt with topics that I am genuinely interested in).
I would like all bloggers to know, that I do not follow others blindly.
Also, it makes no sense following my blog if you have no intentions of reading any of my articles.
Please note, that although it is nice to have a large following, it is better to have followers that actually interact with you.
It is ridiculous to have thousands of followers when in reality, only a small portion of them interact with you (It is sad when the majority of a person’s followers is actually made up of proverbial dead weight).
You Followed Me With The Hopes Of Me Buying Something From You
There are a large number of business-related blogs that follow Renard’s World (Now, I am okay with that provided that those bloggers are genuinely interested in my blog).
Other bloggers become highly suspicious whenever they see that they are followed by business-related blogs.
Because they believe that those people want to sell them their products.
Now, hats off to those people who have chosen to make a living off of blogging by selling their products online.
And, even though those people may view me as a potential customer, I am not going to buy anything from them that is unneeded.
So, good luck to you if you followed me with the hopes of me buying something from you.
You Are Eager To See What I Will Post Next
Now, in spite of planning out my topics in advance, there are those moments when I will scrap the entire project and create something entirely new at the last minute (Therefore, in situations like those, we are both eager to see what it is that I am going to post next).
Besides, we are all eager to find out what it is that those people whom we are following are going to post next.
If you are one of those people who followed Renard’s World because you were eager to find out what it is that I am going to post next, you are going to be pleasantly surprised (I never fail to deliver).
Well, thank you for following my blog if you possess that genuine desire to find out what it is that I am going to post next.
You Always Learn Something New Whenever You Read My Blog Posts
It is no huge secret, that I enjoy passing on the things that I have learned about blogging to other bloggers.
Bloggers of all levels (whether they are newcomers to blogging, at an intermediary stage of blogging or advanced bloggers) have mentioned to me that they always learn something new whenever they read my blog posts.
Truthfully speaking, it is always a great honour to be of service to my blogging community.
And, I am going to do my best in the area of disseminating useful knowledge; that way, people will always continue to learn something new.
Were you one of those people who started following my blog because you learned something new whenever you read my blog posts?
You Love My Friendly Personality
Most bloggers would quicker liaise with bloggers that possessed a friendly personality (Mainly because of the fact, that a person with a friendly personality is not viewed as intimidating).
I am known for engaging in the following type of behaviour:
- Encouraging bloggers to stick with their blogs and not give up blogging.
- Reading the blog posts of my fellow bloggers.
- Leaving valuable comments in the comments section of my fellow bloggers.
- Welcoming new bloggers to the blogosphere and wishing them all the best with their blog.
Hey, people adore bloggers with a friendly personality (And, you have the potential of making leaps and bounds in the blogosphere by being genuinely friendly).
Please feel free to tell me the reason why you have chosen to follow Renard’s World via the comments section of my blog.
And, those of you who are genuinely interested in following my blog are hereby invited to subscribe to it.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to seeing you around Renard’s World in the near future.
