Let’s play a game..

Answer these 2 simple questions –

  1. How many new followers you gained in the past 7 days?
  2. Why do you think they followed you?

The answer to the second question will make you think and observe closely as to why people follow you, what is it that made them follow you and you can work in the direction of achieving more followers in a powerful way.

Start doing what works best for you. You are the best judge to your blog!

    1. I loved the way you have taken it. Tells me that you are courageous enough to take things forward. It was zero the past week, and I must say that I need to ask you the same question next week and the answer is going to be different.. 🙂

      1. Ya I guess. But considering who I am , I don’t really care about the number of followers. I’m just glad I’ve got the support from people even if it’s not a lot of people. So even if it doesn’t change I’m still thankful for what has happened. But thanks!

      2. Yes my dear… even if numbers don’t matter, the supporting of our fellow bloggers does matter. We must support each other to help everyone around and take advantage at the same time.

  1. 😎53.. I think my tagging worked.. as I was not tagging my old posts .. recently started tagging and categorizing it. From the very first day of tagging I have got bunch of followers and 53 is such a big number to me.
    And few might be from follow to follow policy 😀

  2. About 5, it’s actually decent for me considering my shyness is also online as well as in real life. And in all reality, I don’t know why people follow me, I don’t have the foggiest. I don’t really follow a theme, I swear a lot, and my thoughts tend to be random. I’d like to think my words are helpful, but I don’t know whether I’m helping in the way I think I am.

    1. Being interesting is the best way to attract people.. I am sure it helps most of us here… and 26 seems to be a good number too.. happy blogging and thank.You for sharing your experiences..


  3. In last 7 days I have about 30 new followers. They are mainly because of your and gama’s efforts plus my efforts in appreciating others blogs and following them. What I loved most is all who followed have not just followed as courtesy to follow back but have taken good interest in reading and liking and reflecting my blogs. Zigyasa dear you are a thinker and initiator. You want to see things moving on..no matter what. Cheers and keep on.

  4. 20, glorious 20. That’s about 1/4 of all my followers. I hope it has something to do with consistency. Networking on blogs like yours has made a big difference. Thank you Sestina!

  5. 9 in the past week. Which is pretty good considering that I’ve less than 50 total followers. As to why, maybe I write something interesting occasionally and I comment on other people’s blogs. Could be something else entirely as well. Thanks and cheers.

    1. You know my dear, my intention behind this post is to make people talk and share with others the idea of how they relate to have more or less number of followers. There are bloggers, who do not worry about that at all. There are bloggers who just want to write what they wat to and not to impress others.. and some of them are fond of having more followers.. Every one is unique in their own way and every one is beautiful the way they are… Thanks a lot for sharing your numbers here. I am glad that you are satisfied with the same.. all the best..

  6. I don’t really pay attention to how many people follow me in a certain amount of time.
    I TYG as I go. 🙂

    Question 2? Hmmmm… good question… I’m hoping it’s because I have inspired or empowered them which is my goal.

  7. Seven in the last one week since I started the blog 😊 Some just visited and started following, I hope that’s because they liked what they read 😊 Some likely follows for a follow.
    Thanks for your posts where we can comment and your tips are great too. I need to now learn how to tag and categorize.
