I’ve been doing real good with my blog lately. Yep, Getting lots of followers. Every single day. I don’t know why or how. It just started happening. There’s just one little problem.
I’m the follower.
Yep. I keep following my own blog. At first, I would remove myself from my list of those who follow me. But darn it, I kept coming right back. So, then I stopped removing myself, and WordPress still kept notifying me that I had a new follower.
The count keeps going up. So, I don’t know how many followers I really have. The current count says 467, so maybe I’m up to 10 or 15 people who are not me.
I contacted WordPress. I had to send them a screen shot of the notifications. I’m no WordPress expert, but shouldn’t they know what they send me? Oh well. I try not to ask too many questions, if you know what I mean.
During the chat, the “Happiness Engineer” asked if she could work on my problem and contact me later. Sure. No problem. I thought it’d take awhile anyway. The next time and only time I was contacted was to take a survey on how satisfied I was with the help I received. On the good side, the “Happiness Engineer” was very nice.
Perhaps this is how happiness is engineered for us bloggers – something in the system generates lots of followers who will be receiving our updates.
Since I can’t control what’s happening, I’m just going to accept the fact that I like to follow my own blog.
I just hope I don’t start leaving comments.
