This year I’ve taken a much more active approach on my blog and I’ve gained some new followers because of it.  Yay!

With new followers, I’ve followed back a lot of new bloggers.  This has been so fun!  I’ve made some new friends and have added to my “favorites”.  I’ve also discovered a lot of new writing, etc.  So cool!  Now, I have a lot more coming into my Reader Feed to keep up with!  It’s a challenge, but I’m enjoying it!

Tell me, do any of you fellow bloggers know how I can find out how many bloggers I follow?  I don’t have any idea.  It would be nice if I could see a list somewhere.  Please let me know if you know.  Thanks!

  1. If you are reading other posts in your WP Reader, then just look at the left handside of the page. There should be a column there, the first of which says Followed Sites – Manage.
    Click on Manage and you should see all the blogs you follow. The total number is at the top as Followed Sites.
    You can manage them all here – eg maybe you don’t want to receive an email every time they post. Click on settings underneath their Follow button and select that option.

    You are right – the more you put in to blogging the more you get out, but it is very time consuming! Enjoy! 🙂

      1. You usually end up following a lot less – as many “followers” aren’t really! – Maybe 5% actually follow anyone. The few that you do interact with are all that matter 🙂
