Unable to break 130

I have little of importance to say today, but I thought you might think I had been carted off to the loony bin after my previous post and wanted to assure you that I am fine. Johnny sends his love, BTW.
Anyway, every day I come check my blog and see what's going on in the blogisphere. Who cares if the dishes are piling up and Indy has no clean clothes? I have to check my blog! When I go to my dashboard I always see the number of followers. First of all, I'm absolutely floored that there are 129 of you who are actually interested in what I have to say. I heart you all, just so you know. So every day the number is either 127, 128 or 129. Some days I get all sad because I've lost followers and other days I'm happy because I'm back up to 129. This has been going on for about 2 months now. It's weird. Before the fluctuation I didn't really pay all that much attention to it. I saw the followers, marveled that there were so many and moved on. Now, it's become an obsession. Why do I lose a follower or 2 a week? Who takes their place a week later? WHY can't I break 130? Why do I care? I have no idea.

Don't worry about the numbers it's there loss if they leave you! Once I follow I follow I never go back and unfollow sometimes I don't always get a chance to read every post but always come back. Have a great week.

I wonder that myself all the time. What did I do? Did I write something offensive? Am I really that boring? What the H is wrong with me, darn it? ;) I think you're fabulous!

One thing I read somewhere on Google said that sometimes followers decide to go private so it doesn't always mean you've lost a follower, it can mean they went private instead of public. I guess that means they don't want anyone to know they're following your blog- like that makes you feel so much better and all. hee hee

I always wonder the same thing when someone stops following my blog. What did I do? Did I offend someone? Probably not. I'm sure the reasons are as varied as people are. My bigger question is why people start following my blog in the first place! I'm glad they do!

Can't blame a girl for keeping track of valuable blog stats! Here's one to add - I have a little treat for you over at my place. It's NOT a Thanksgiving turkey!

The whole follower thing can really get in to your head! There are so many fluctuations that I stopped watching that close!

susan said...

I would click follow if I could, but I already do! :) Have a happy Thanksgiving and don't count anything but blessings! :)

Hmm, I also wonder about these things, good or bad. But I did not know about the public vs. private following. Good to know!

ha ha.. coincidence or not I'm wondering about that too... it's just that i can't pass over 100.. argh..
Anyway.. oh yeah my husband is crazy about kartoffelpuffer and langosch too.. I'm just a langosch and crêpes kinda girl:) Oo and St. Nikolaus Eve sounds like a good time to decorate the tree.. we have to buy one first of course:P
As for Thanksgiving, it's on Thursday, and husband works 'til 8pm, but I'll do a stuffed chicken and carrot cake for the weekend probably.
Happy Tuesday!

I'm trying to only follow blogs that amuse me, so congrats. You're on my dashboard and you help me kill many numerous hours at work.

I've recently begun blogging myself, and as no one I know has a clue that I'm writing anything online other than my twitter (makes me giggle every time I say "my twitter"...)status, I was totally syked (right word?) when I saw I now have 2 followers that aren't me. Sad? Yes. Motivational? You bet.

I follow you and I will never leave.

Unless I die or something.

Unless somebody drops out before you read this, you should have 131 followers right now. You're the very first blog I've ever become a follower of! Aren't you proud? :p

Tina said...

Heh, let me see if I can help. I thought I was following already but maybe not so here I am :-)

Kristin said...

I don't know how accurate it is. We're forever going up or down with 1 or 2. Weirdsville.
