Thank You: Over 500 Followers & 500 Likes on my Blog

Thank you!


This is so much better than any award I could ever achieve. I have reached way over the 650 Follower mark and well over the 500 Like mark on my pages, I am only at 250 comments, but we’re getting there.

I never thought my writing blog would ever gain this much interest and attention. I know it may not be in the thousands but I have gained over 500 followers in 3 months and on a new writing blog, for many that is an achievement all on its own.

But thank you. You guys make my work what it is. You put in the time to read and follow my creative writing blog on wordpress.com and to me that makes you awesome. It may not be 22,476 followers, but hey! I have over 650! ….YES!!!!!!

I’d like to also thank, little baby jesus. And my mommy and daddy…. Haha! I’m just playing.

But honestly all of the comments, likes and followers are appreciated at this side, if it wasn’t for you guys I wouldn’t even try.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! Yeah, you…. Yes, the person reading this right now, you!

Keep reading and if you haven’t before, have a trek to see what I have written before, you might find something.

Keep being awesome and keep those pens busy!

I love you.

Hundreds Of Followers On WordPress.com But Only A Few Likes. Why?


Is anyone out there?

Who knows? Who cares?

Follow my blog?

All of you don’t like so don’t share.

Alex to the rescue, again!

Sarah King E-mails. – “Hi Alex, I love your writing. (Thanks, Sarah.) I have been blogging about a year longer than most bloggers on WordPress.com but why are they getting the followers and likes? Thanks. And when are you going to post another story online, I need my fantasy fix. Sarah King – New York”

Hi Sarah and everyone, I am going to explain WordPress.com blogging quickly from my P.O.V. (Point-Of-View)

I have hundreds of followers on my blog, yes. – But why? You ask, am I getting perhaps 10 to 20 likes on each post. The reason behind this, WordPress.com is like a stream of information; once you throw your rock in, it gets a few glistens before it is washed away.

The same principle work on your behalf but what you have to remember, if you live in New York, the time difference from all your followers elsewhere are going to be. And let’s just say that most of your followers live in Great Britain (I do! I do!) By the time you have thrown you post onto your blog and left it; other posts would have taken over; so when the tired-eyed Brits wake up and log-on to WordPress.com they completely miss your post.

I mean yes, you can wade through the information-stream, but it takes time, so if you would like to reach a larger market make sure you tag and categorise your posts properly.

Don’t be one of those quitter-type-people-the-ones-who-quit! Because blogging is not as easy as everyone thinks, go make paper-planes. And I see blogs all over with 35,677 Hits or thousands-upon-thousands of followers. But this is a craptastic world we live in because we love crap! But these blogs have been web-steroid with geek-power and a butt-load of money, so obviously they are going to get all the followers, subscribers, first page on Google and Bing searches and all the post likes.

Hey, I am happy in my corner with my 10 likes every time I blog, it may not mean a lot to you, but it does to me. I sleep better knowing this, I mean I would still sleep if it were 15,000 hits on one post, but sadly that reality is just not meant for some of us just yet, bide your time on the blogging scene, you may find all you are looking for.

Oh… And can I just say to some of my followers, yes, I will be posting some more stories online, perhaps Sunday about Midnight GMT.
