For the record...I follow the blog because the blogger interests me, regardless of style. I do not and never will follow a blog for reciprocal 'obligation'. Or because it is expected of me. Pffttt.
A few times the "I'm following you, follow me?" comment has worked because the blogger interests me but generally... this type of comment makes me feel like cattle. What annoys me is when the comment is made without any action. Why lie?
I do follow many bloggers who don't follow me and that's more than fine. I do because I want to, not because I have to. Likewise with the commenting. It's wit and flair and a fearlessness combined with honesty that gets me. I LOVE strong women who are not afraid to show their strengths and I love "just try and stop me" attitude and if you've got that in spades then you've got me!
I lost a few followers after my 'Why Do You Comment?' post, which I found rather amusing. I'm always losing followers! I don't seem to accumulate the follower numbers like most bloggers do... guess I'm just not interesting enough.... J ...although my traffic stats tell me otherwise... which confuses me.
Let me get this straight... I don't blog to not be seen. I do care about my readers and my traffic and my non-blogger readers and am very grateful for all of you. What's a blog without a followship?
And also...I just discovered that I'm not actually following the blogs of some bloggers that I do like! Bloggers who read my blog! eek. Sorry! I've rectified that now!

Both outfits, I'm wearing an awesome Coco LIberace coral leather & studs cuff. (close-up pics soon)
