Honest, I’m befuddled that I have 400+ blog followers. I only know and hear from 10% of my followers. So this blog post, isn’t directed to my frequent readers and commenters.
Nor is this post for pedestrian visitors who bump into this blog by using a general Google search, but choose not to follow this blog.
There are blog followers here, who have said absolutely nothing for the last few years. They have not even “liked” any blog post. It’s hard to read that type of response: nothing. I’m not sure if they are lurkers who are shy, bored or have unsavoury intentions. To the latter group with nefarious thoughts, don’t waste your precious time blog squatting nor spamming.
Some blog subscribers want to sell to my readers and I, something that they have because their blog is nothing but their product or service which may or may not be related to my primary blog topics. Sorry, I’m not interested in buying anything. I have all my necessities. Thank you. I don’t wish to struggle with Canada-U.S. customs ‘cause I just can’t be bothered to pay extra fees for cross-border online purchases.
My regular readers do give a general sense of who they are and which part of the world they inhabit. I’m grateful for their time, humour, graciousness and curiosity. (Well, they must be curious because they look and make comments on my blog.) So again, this blog post is not directed to this crowd of readers.
So if you haven’t spoken up, speak up about yourself or may I suggest: just quietly go fishing elsewhere. Unhook yourself by unsubscribing from this blog. I won’t be hurt, I won’t be bothered if my reader statistics fall over the cliff. I’d rather not clog up your email with automatic notices of new blog posts which you probably aren’t reading anyway.
I wish you well in search of positive things that benefit your broader community. For both regular readers and those who have left for other explorations: may you leave a long lasting ripple of goodness to also your loved ones.
