I was being selfish these past couple of days. I followed a Twitter page that was simply for follow-backs. And I didn’t get many referrers from twitter as much as I thought I would get after being followed my LOTS of people. I even thought, Eh, at least I got followers. That will add to my followers count at my blog (Yes, I was being dangerously selfish! I can’t believe myself now that I put it in writing! :O) I selfishly stopped following people and then ended up guilty for followeing them in the first place. Most of the people I un-followerd had unfollowed me back, too! I guess I am not the only one who keeps track of my followers. And one of them unfollowed me even though I hadn’t unfollowed them, but I got a little happy because I could unfollow that person without any guilt.
I guess some people followed me either because I follow them back or because they wanted a follow back like I did before. Eh, greed. It got me and made me a stupid, pathetic human being. Although some of the people were my friends and I mistakenly unfollowed them too and I today I saw that one of them unfollowed me and I was all
Ooops! And I am not sure if I should follow them back because they might think I followed them again for another follow!
Days of selfishness…..complete.
Don’t you ever do that, Mon! Joining a follow page for follow-backs and then unfollowing people
Sorry, WM 😦
Update: I am talking about twitter followers 😛 But all the people I followed on wordpress was because I liked their blogs, haha
Update#2: User abyssbrain gave the following info. I found so many spammy links from many follow-back-followers!
Of course, people who offer follow x follow have their own reasons. Others may just want to grow their followers that way, but I will bet that many others are affiliated with some shady websites that just want to build backlinks to their sites…
