Why I follow… you.

Dear fellow blogger, if I may be so bold as to also call you friend. I follow you because I like what you have to say to me.

I imagine, you are speaking only to me. We’re sitting down having coffee or tea or… whatever you like. You laugh at my comments and then you say hey… this, that and the other. You have me laughing, engaged, enthralled, curious, anxious, terrified, angry, pensive, placated, peaceful, searching, sighing at aha moments, loving the way your prose caresses my mind and basically you have me in love with everything you have to say because it touches me somehow.

I don’t follow you so that you can follow me. (Although you are definitely most welcomed.) I genuinely like what you have to say and for me it’s a surprise whenever I click on my reader or my email. Although… I have to say my email is jam packed with all of your posts and I can’t keep up. Like you I have a life outside this blog. But I do like to take my breaks and my new favorite thing to do besides writing and listening to music, is to listen to all of your thoughts and advice and random rants and jokes and flashes and… a myriad of lose fabric that I can tie into my quilt of pleasure. Varied in content, comforting in thought.

That’s why I follow you. No other reason. Well there is connection. I feel I’ve connected with a few of you and I love that part. But I realize that it may be one sided and I don’t ever want you to be, feel obligated to come over to my end of the blogosphere just because. However, again, you are most welcomed always and I hope that if you do, you find a little nook in which you can enjoy some scandalous work of fiction or some tender moment you didn’t expect or… some crazy rant that might have you laughing or annoyed for that matter.

So… I follow you because I like you and I like spending time in your head. It gets me out of my head and helps me cope with the minutia of life’s little hurdles.

With that… you’ve touched my life in ways I didn’t know I needed and I’m grateful.

Much love from all the fiction in my head to your thoughtful rants!

Peace out!

    Agapi, I had to come back to this post after you prompted Novus to read it after her strange “follow me” post. 😕 For the record, she’s mental for not following you. I’m heading over to tell her!! 😠 I can’t believe she wasn’t!
    I read this ages ago and remembered THAT THIS post was why I followed you. I vividly remember reading and thinking, yes yes yes to all of this. I like this person. So I wanted to remind you. You trapped me in your love Web. ❤❤💋

  2. I only followed you because you followed me.

    And, because you’re awesome as a person and a writer, and as a friend. But mostly that following me thing.

    Oh, and because of your tastes in music and other things that we share. But rest assured, it’s primarily because you followed me first.

    And your wonderful comments and sense of humor. But, follow.

  3. Such a candid one☺️☺️ I have been blogging for more than a year and got connected to some beautiful souls via my blog. I’m happy for that. However, have also encountered people who would just follow and then unfollow too if you don’t follow back😁
    Cheers, Charu

  4. This is a great way to sum it up. It’s always interesting to check out other bloggers and what they are about. Even the various comments that go along with their posts are quite interesting, entertaining, educating, and informative. It’s not all about being followed. It’s about enjoying yourself.

    Thanks for this wonderful post. Stay blessed!👍👍

  5. This is such a thoughtful and touching post. It is the type of thing that says a lot more about the person behind it and their values than just their words alone. This is the type of thing that makes me happy and grateful to have crossed paths with bloggers such as yourself and makes me want to come back for more.

  6. Beautifully summed up Mel – I follow blogs for the same reasons and have met some wonderful people and read some amazing words. Long may it continue and I’m very happy you decided to drop into my little corner of the internet 🙂

  7. ‘I follow you because I like you and I like spending time in your head. It gets me out of my head and helps me cope with the minutia of life’s little hurdles.’ This is the most beautiful description of why I blog too, and the one thing I hadn’t factored in when I started.
