I was contented establishing my foothold on selected social media networks.
However, my next objective (and main concern) was how to attract readers. An unknown like me had to show something original (or entertaining) to get some attention.
Frankly, when I got on board, I felt like an orphan. I tried to get followers by following as many people as possible. It was like promoting oneself to be liked, not knowing if they would be interested to follow back. But, isn’t that the point of blogging?
Lucky me if I am a popular TV or movie personality, a politician, a journalist or just plain rich. Sadly, I am a nobody. Who’ll give a whit of time to read what I wish to share? I hope I am mistaken with this initial reaction.
I think various networks have their own magic for users to interact with online. However, I feel reluctant to follow some people who has no time or interest to return the favor. I may like their sites, views, opinions but I think is is also fair that they have to show their appreciation with even a short visit to mine.
What do you think?
