I know fuck!! Why the hell would you want to read a blog post which pretty much tells you I am going to get all whiny?!
It’s because I am adorable and fucking funny right? Okay maybe not, but just bear with me anyway!!
I understand that your’e just dying to hear all the juicy details about my naughty weekend away with Mon Capitaine but suck it up buttercup, you are about to be terribly disappointed… I know, I am such a shit!! First I forewarn you that I am going to bore you with my whining and then I don’t even have the common fucking decency to fill you in on all my debauchery and wild monkey sex.! I do promise to fill you in on all the details in the next few days or so but for now I need to write this whiny arsed post so I can get it all off my chest!! I mean, after all it’s MY blog and I get to decide what the fuck I want to write about okay?!… now we have that all straight lets get on with it!!
I have been writing this blog now for a little over a year and for the longest time the only followers I had were my friends, family and some friends of friends. It was getting rather embarrassing to be fucking honest with you. It can be a little awkward to sit opposite a friend over dinner and talk about normal shit when I know they have just been reading about my latest fuck!!
A couple of months ago I was messing around on my blog, well actually I was trying to get some fucking help from WordPress and while I was on their main page there was a little synopsis of a blog which sounded fascinating so I clicked on the link and fuck me dead if the blog was not fucking awesome so despite the fact that I am batshit crazy I did what most normal people would do and followed the blog.
Later that day I got a notification that the person was following me and I thought fuck, that is awesome they like my blog too. It was after this I started looking for blogs of interest and opened up a whole new world of reading which is fucking fantastic because Y’all know my job right now is as boring as shit so I need some good crap to read.
Anyway it kind of spiraled from there, the more blogs I followed, read and commented on the more that other bloggers started to follow me until it got to a point where I was following over 100 blogs and I had around the same number in followers.
And then the crazy shit began, I mean seriously, my fucking email was just blowing up with new blog posts and I could not keep up on reading. I found that I was reading some awfully boring shit that had absolutely ZERO interest for me so in the end I started to just hit the like button, delete the email and move on to the next email. After a few days of doing this I thought seriously, what the FUCK am I doing!! This is total bullshit why am I being dishonest and clicking “like” on their post when I did not even fucking read it… So I stopped doing that…I think I am a pretty fucking honest person and clicking “like” when I had not even read the post was NOT being honest and it was not making me feel good.
So what I started to do next was read the first few lines of the email and if I found it interesting I would click the link to their blog and read it. Also, to show that I had read it I would make some comment and click the “like” button BUT once again this still did not feel right. Honestly sometimes I would sit there for five fucking minutes trying to come up with a comment. I mean, I read the fucking post and I enjoyed it, but fuck me dead… I just did not have a comment to make and I would have to rack my fucking brain to come up with something to say. Well NO MORE!! The fucking madness has got to stop!!
Honestly…It really HAS to stop!!
I have over 100 followers on my blog but I can absofuckinlutely guarantee you that 100 people do not READ my blog, I consider myself lucky if 20 of you read my blog!! So why so many followers? I just do not get it? Am I missing something?
I simply do not understand how I got on this fucking roundabout of illegitimate blog followers but I can tell you now that I am abandoning ship!!
I realize by doing so I am going to lose a LARGE chunk of my following, but that is okay!! I don’t give a fuck!! Well I kind of do, because fuck, we all want to be liked but really and truly I only want legitimate followers. I honestly ONLY want people to follow me if they are really interested in reading all this random bullshit that I have to say.
I am not interested in the “follow for a follow” mentality. I see absolutely NO value in it!
So in the last couple of weeks if I clicked LIKE on your blog post it is because I have read your post and I genuinely liked it. If I commented, it is because I had something to say and not because I tortured my batshit crazy brain trying to come up with a comment.
Also in the last week or two I have slowly stopped following blogs that have no interest for me, if I consistently delete the emails without reading the blog after a few times of this I un- follow. I am not trying to be mean or hurtful but I do need to be honest and true to myself!!
So if by some weird strange chance you follow my blog and you NEVER ever read it but by some miracle you happen to be reading this one it is okay if you unfollow me. I promise not to cry and pout and stamp my feet. I also promise that I will not retaliate and unfollow you. I will however unfollow ANY blogs that I don’t read and if that happens to be you I am sorry, please do not take it to heart. Understand that what might be interesting for one person may be as boring as shit for another. I get it!! I hope you do too!
