My question Tuesday

So this is my question today, which leads to... 

 Question Tuesday.

Why do girls hit that follow button and not follow, EVER?
Is it a game? Is it so you'll come and 
follow them?
When I had my iWeb blog with Apple, there was no follow button, so I never knew who was following,and still don't really pay attention to it, but I'm curious. WHY click it, if your not going to come VISIT, EVER?

That's it, nothing more, or less so to speak.

Hello pretty one....I know. I always ASKED that same question, and I stopped wondering. I think that some people COME TO SEE but don't leave comments. My husband has a BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN blog, but has rarely any commenters. BUT....apparently FACEBOOK people read it and leave comments on FB. I don't know, but I sure understand your query!!!

I LOVE YOU!!! Anita

Hi Claudie,
I think a lot of people do follow but just don't comment. I have spoken to several bloggers who just don't care to leave comments with every visit they make.
I plugged into one of those blog rating sites just to see how many were visiting. I might get 30-40 comments/post but I will have 200 or more visitors a day. Just my thoughts.
Have a great day!
Cindy

I'd follow you to the moon, gorgeous! I don't visit my blog friends on a very regular schedule... (I'm a bad girl), but I still LOVE YOU and think about you and my other soul sista's more than you know. I am correspondence challenged, it's true. Hope all of you are doing well... LOVE YOU,
love me

Well I know a few people who like to have alot of "followers". So if they follow they will be followed. lol I love comments and so appreciate my blogging friends! I went to an event and 2 girls were so excited that I was Grace in the Pink City...I cracked up!! But they have never left a comment. On FB the same thing! I have family that never leave comments yet they know what is going on...Stalkers? Admirers? love us from afar??? whaha. Love ya girlie girl and so proud to follow you!! lol Grace xoox

I have no idea, Claudie. I don't keep my followers online because I think it dissuades people who aren't interested in following from doing so. But that's not the case, either, because they just click the follow button on the top of my blog, and some rarely if ever visit. LOL! I try to follow everyone who follows me, and I visit everyone who visits me... or despertely try to do that. If I miss, it's an accident.


Pink Saturday I didn't get to visit even though I told Beverly I would play. I had two HUGE trees from the neighbor's yard fall in our yard within five feet of the house. They dug trenches in the ground, took out parts of the fence, including brick columns, and squashed sections of the hedge and also my topiaried podacarpus. So I am up to my eyeballs in stuff. They got it out on Saturday for king's ransom. Poor Mr. Magpie (who is sick with flu) has a very light wallet as a consequence. Five men worked All day to get those trees out. The stump is still there, but it's my neighbor's problem from here on out... except for all of the landscape damage which I will have to fix.

Don't sweat it about the other. You still have friends who follow you regularly, and they will always be your blog buds. I followed you back then and now, too.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Alot of people follow faithfully buit don't always comment. I know some people ahve THOUSANDS of followers and TRY to get back to them but just can not do it. I try so hard to get to my blogs but I follow so many I can't always comment either. It is a dliema. But if someone leaves me a comment I always try to go to their blog and comment and thank them. XO, Pinky

Yup, like they all said!! Definitely those peeps are visting- but don't have time to comment. when you call, I will tell you how to read your fav. blogs without even going to their blogs. Now I'm off to hit your 'follow' button. It never occured to me to do that because you weren't on blogger before. Talk soon!

Your blog looks SO beautiful! Love your new background and banner. I know what you mean about not hearing from followers. I SO appreciate you taking the time to comment. You are a doll!

I dunno.


I'm out of gas.


Baking a cake for Parker.

I should be in bed.

Dragon boat'd in the pouring rain tonite, Got soaked.

Now I am sore. Many muscles that haven't been used for a winter.

I need someone to do my dishes.

What should I wear to work tomorrow?

I haven't checked my bank balance in weeks. Is that bad?

My bed is going to feel amazing tonite. Wish I could sleep in tomorrow.

Thats it,

Love ya.

Love that you don't have word verification!

THAT is the exact reason I DO NOT have a follower button on my blog. I used to...then I was getting all wound up in "how many" followers I had.
Kinda like a popularity contest and it was drivin me nuts......so I said SO LONG.
My followers will follow me without clicking a button
doesn't matter to me.

Same with Facebook...it's like some people profess to have 100's and 100's of friends...Really?? and just HOW many of those people talk to you on facebook.

I love to hear from my regular followers, whether it is facebook of on my blog...It bothers me when the PEOPLE I REALLY CARE about and thought cared about me, if they don't leave a comment.
I am flattered when I hear from others,
but I refuse to loose sleep anymore about who is "following me"

I am rambling aren't I.
I have always been kind of a needy person...I need my friends.
BUT..there are FRIENDS and there are followers...who don't follow up.
so silly.
stupid follow button
I am going to FOLLOW YOU all the way to Ottowa this year...Cause I LOVE YA.
you're my friend

Hey... Excellent question! and I love the song, by the way...very you I think...I really stopped by to reply to the comment you left on my post about the video! Wow, how about that! I never could have known that when I posted it...My mother sent it to me in an email and I just felt the need to share it. I was hoping someone would click on it and watch it...it is a powerful message I think. I am so glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed life so, especially your hero of a father! My daughter watched it with me twice...she is 19 and says that one of her college teachers, psychology, I think, showed it and she learned so much and still loves it...kim

Claudette,
Great post and great question! I'm so glad you stopped by my blog and left the sweet comment. I would already have removed the Follow button from my blog but I didn't know what it would do to the ones that are already following. I need to find out. If they're not disconnected then that button is gone!

Thanks for your input!

Sherry @ A Happy Valentine
