So I have reached a little over 750 followers.
Typically, I reach between 35 to 40 likes on a single post.
This means that only 5% actually reads and like what they’re reading.
Even that, doesn’t mean much.
Yesterday I heard my phone buzzing. Once. Twice. And it kept on going.
A certain person has liked 20 of my post in less than a minute (!)
And this is just one examples.
There have been more instances like this.
Sometimes I get likes literally 2 seconds after I post something.
Don’t feel intimidated by bloggers who have a high amount of followers.
Sometimes I read blogs who say “I seriously don’t know how I got this amount of followers”.
Well hon, allow me to tell you. You schedule the same post a couple of times so that readers simple cannot miss it.
And that’s ok. Just remember, these people are necessarily better writers, they are just better at promoting themselves.
Too often I see bloggers who write consistently and relevant content but have barely 5 followers. They simply might not be familiar with the wordpress and blogging concept.
And certainly I have too. I just don’t really find the time to explore it all.
What does the amount of followers and likes mean to you?
