It happened again.
Somebody, somewhere in the world made a decision they may soon regret. He or she decided to follow my blog, and in so doing, became follower number 2,000 of Borden’s Blather.
I wrote a post last November about how it was kind of a letdown when I finally reached 1,000 followers, and this time it’s no different.
And while it didn’t take as long to add the second 1,000 followers as it did to get the first 1,000, I am living proof that the number of followers doesn’t seem to matter. Despite the increased number of followers, the number of daily views of my blog has been declining for the past three to four months.
What does matter, and what many people have told me over the years, is the amount of engagement.
And thanks to so many wonderful readers, the number of likes and comments has continued to increase or at least hold steady over the past few months.
So a big thank you to all of you for taking the time to read my daily blather and to share your thoughts.
And as a token of my appreciation, I thought I would offer some free advice as to how you too can get 2,000 followers.
First, you start with 1,000…, and then you just buy a few more each day…
