Follow me

I recently added the Follow This Blog widget to my right side bar. According to Blogger, "The Followers widget is a great tool to help you grow your blog's audience. Readers often visit a blog and enjoy it but fail to return. With the followers widget you can get all readers to return and become a fan."




I thought some of my regular readers would use it for convenience....but I've been happily surprised by the number of new readers (or possibly, lurkers) who have used this feature. As an added bonus, it's been fun for me to have a look-see at these new blogs.

I recommend this widget!

It's exciting to watch followers add up! Lovely pictures you found.

I keep meaning to come read your blog, but the time has been fleeting! This will help so much!

Jenn said...

Definitely agree that it is a fun widget to add, I love to get out and see the blogs of amazing people who are actually crazy enough to read my blog lol. I would be reading you with or without the follow link :)

I have five whole followers on my new blog! I like this widget too! PS, I loved that virtual trip down the grand canyon, and whenever you're ready to go packin' on a mule, I'm so down with that. Don't you think we could bring the hula hoops and patron to such an event? That cabin looks like it needs reckless some fun to be had in it!

Ahhh, I am not always the brightest bulb in the pack, and have been wondering about this... Thanks, I am going to give it a try! :0)

Ann said...

So nice images... and I've been wanting to do that thing (to follow my fave blogs) but I always run out of time. But I guess I can give it a try right now...Bye:)

Ah yes! I love this new feature.

Hey Harriet said...

I need to investigate this. My followers show up when I sign into my blog but I didn't realise I could put a 'follow widget' thing to display on my blog. I've been wondering how people have been signing on to follow when I don't have a follow link thing. Confused. I'm so behind the times...

I'll follow you to the other side of the planet (being in Australia an' all). Lovely illustrations too.

I'm a-following! Somehow people are following me, tho I don't have this on my blog. I need to figure out how this is done so I can "follow" all my usuals and be in their lists.
