The Future of Blogging
I seem to be in the mood for cleaning... well, actually it's more like organizing!! It's too late for spring cleaning so I guess I could call this 'summer sorting'.
I've been doing a lot of it in my office but this morning I tackled my computer.... BLOGGER to be exact.
It's just amazing how participation has dropped off (at least in my followers/followings). People aren't blogging like they used to.
Now, I've always been picky about who I followed. I just had 101 friends in my followers list. So, I decided this morning, I'd check to see how many of those people I once was in contact with are still active!
On the design page I clicked on READING LIST. On the right side of the page it listed all the people I was following. So, one by one I click on their blog title to see how long it had been since they posted anything new. I decided that if they hadn't posted anything in 6 months, I'd delete them. To do that, I went back to the reading list. There's a trashbin at the right and by clicking on that trashbin they were gone, one by one.
I now have 89 that is on my followers list.
See what I mean. If you don't post, you lose.
How long has it been since you checked your followers list? I bet you'd be surprised.
