We Could Have Been So Good Together

I just read a post by Laura in which she laments being dumped by one of her blog followers. Of course she did it in her typically witty way, and so I laughed along with her. Besides, I thought, she still has about eleventy jillion followers to keep her company.

And then I noticed that someone dumped me this afternoon. Gulp.

I only have a handful of followers, so I know who kicked me to the curb. And I know how pathetic this sounds, but I just want to go to her blog and tell her to please come back. I'm sure it was something I said.

Of course, I am new to the follower feature, and even I primarily use a reader, so maybe that's what she did? Eh, who am I kidding . . .

This is why I stopped checking my site rankings -- too much pressure!

Oh well, I have to be me, but I'll be kicking around the blogosphere if you ever decide to come back, my friend.


  1. You aren't kidding yourself... I'm still here. ;) I can't believe it never crossed my mind that I could be hurting any feelings... honestly, I just have gone on a cleaning spree in my home in attempt to simplify my life, and did the same with my dashboard. I only am following those who follow me or those who are my "real life" friends... and keeping up with the rest through reader.

    I think I need to make a new post on my blog... I have some explaining to do to the blogging community! ;)

  2. I have a few blogs I follow...they are the ones I like to look in on who are not listed in my sidebar links (yours is--and those I check several times daily if I see updates!) but I understand...I have lamented having only one follower myself, and she has never even left a comment! I wonder if she really exists...

  3. I am loyal to you always..I promise. I don't have any idea how to do a reader but I do think I am a follower ( in so many ways!) I don't check my stats anymore or who is following me because, frankly, it is depressing. I just blog away (although not this week) and try to remind myself I am doing this for me, I am doing this for me, I am doing this for me.

  4. That's why I don't pay attention to the "Followers" -- too much inner turmoil! ;o)

  5. Awww... :::hug:::

    I usually read through a reader, so I didn't realize until now that I was "not" following you. But you do know I'm around :) I fixed the following part though.

  6. From that first comment it looks like you didn't really lose a follower. Just goes to show how little those stats really show us. Good thing I'm too busy to look at mine. ;)

  7. Stop looking. It's so much easier that way. Really.

  8. I have you in my reader but I just followed you so don't feel bad about losing that other person. She doesn't know what she's missing!

  9. I am such a newbie I don't have any followers yet and I get excited when I get a comment! haha :)


Go ahead and say it. You know you want to.
