To know you have set up a need and interest for visitors, setting up an option to "follow" and/or "subscribe to your feed" is a terrific way to know there are people out there visiting you. However, comments alone do not provide an accurate gauge of visitors, so be sure to add stats to your blog so that you have an accurate idea of visitors.
Once people find you and they decide to follow you, do you get excited? I know I do! I've never actively seeked followers, it just has seemed to evolve over time. Now that I'm involved with the social network Mommy Bloggers Club, I amd meeting and getting to know mom's from around the globe. I'm in awe of the women involved, many have hundreds to thousands of followers. Amazing isn't it!
Do you actively seek followers? If so, how do you go about it?
If you are not a "follower" or "subscriber" yet, become one and I'll be thrilled to "follow" and "subscribe" back to you. Make sure to leave your blog URL.
Looking forward to your visit and feedback.
Have a terrific day and happy blogging!
