Yeap, one of my fav movies is (500) Days of Summer, so I had to use it as inspiration to a blog post title - at least once ! My blog reached 500 followers today -- umm where did you all come from ? :) Last year, at this time of the year I had maybe 60-70 followers via GFC. My little hobby has grown a bit, I could call this my other part-time job almost. Ohh, I couldn't feel happier right now! And I'm extra happy because of the fact that I've "gotten" all of you by just being me - and not trying to fish you here.
First the lovely things, here's few funny, quirky, free spirited and adorable photos (not taken by me.) for all of you lovelies out there. * PUSUJA * = kisses.
Few words about that sort of "following", fishing:
I've seen some of those bloggers who comment to various sites "follow me, I'll follow back!", "let's follow each other" or things like that, just out of the blue! Of course it's always nice to hear that someone has interest in your blog and would like to stay in contact. But most of the times that's not the reason after all, and the "interest" may be insincere. They just wanted to get themselves a new member - and why, to seem more popular or what .. ? There's really no point in that, is there. Myself, I only want to follow the blogs I care about, gain inspiration from, find appealing and sometimes might even feel like I'm friends with the blogger. At least I feel like I've made some pretty good blog friends here, and who knows if we even happen to meet sometime - this is a small World ! :) Well we all have our own reasons to follow different blogs, but I don't really get the whole "follow for a follow"-idea. Someone registers as your follower and that's nice obviously, but they want something in return..that's still reasonable, it's just a click and you've followed them and no further duties ! But those bloggers really never come back to check up on your posts or to comment, which is to me the most rewarding thing in blogging. And the whole idea of blogging being a platform to build a fashionable or what-ever-you-write-about -sort of network, and to communicate with people around the country/world, it gets lost in that sort of business. So don't be offended if I don't immediately want to follow you back, just because you've asked me to.. If I love your blog, I most definitely will do it, or after a while when I see that you have real interest in my blog and I find yours quite appealing too :) I appreciate every single one of you who visit here, anonymous ones included and those silent visitors who never place a single comment - I thank you all for sticking up with me! I love visiting blogs myself too, and there's actually few hundred of them that I visit (not visiting each one daily, just trying to reply to comments and check blog posts that seem interesting via Bloglovin') Pheoow, got that one out of the system. :) Back to the normal schedule now hehe ! x
