Not a rambling post per se, simply an observant [self-indulgent] one … leaning toward followers and friends.
I know my blog has [very] limited likes and [very] few followers (mostly friends). <LOL> That’s okay. It’s not as if I post anything enlightening or eye-opening. And, in truth, the blog itself is rather blah. It’s not “pretty” like others. Not fetching. Not much of anything, really. But it’s mine. And, given what my personal life entails (or doesn’t), I take pride in what I’ve accomplished thus far.
I follow a number of blogs. When I like something, I can read the post via email or visit the blog. When there, I see some have no likes at all except mine, or maybe a small handful. I can relate, being in the same boat. Do I feel bad for the blogger? No, just a little sad. They’ve put their hearts and souls into something and have received next to no accolades. I suppose that annoying saying is, alas, appropriate here: it is what it is.
On the flip side, other bloggers receive an abundance of compliments/likes and I must confess I am a bit envious (but far from jealous). Kudos. And, undoubtedly, well deserved. I suppose blog likes, followers and friends, are much like life: unpredictable (which can prove exciting) and sometimes unfair (which just plain sucks).
Merely a meager observation. And a heartfelt thank-you to fantastic followers and fabulous friends; I love that you care.
