I found the advice incredibly helpful then and still do now. In fact I have been spending the last few days going through my list of ‘followed sites’, and quite a few have been unfollowed. In fact I may have been a little bit too ruthless, but I have reminded myself it is easy to follow again. So why have I been unfollowing. Definitely not because they are not great, they are . . it is just I have noticed in the past few months I am missing posts by bloggers who feel like friends. The reason is I don’t have the time to check the reader everyday and my inbox doesn’t need any more mail than it already has!
So the plan going forward is receive email updates from my top 10 commenters – what Hugh would call the A group and probably B too as I don’t have as many followers as Hugh! Any remaining B and Cs I’ll do my best to visit you either when you comment or when I’m having a ‘reader’ day. Sorry no promises as I always try to visit what I call the glorious ‘P’ group – anyone who has recently participated in the same challenge as me. I will though always respond to comments as it is such fun to chat with you. And finally there will always be in my reader and inbox those who post irresistible challenges and/or I enjoy reading so much I don’t want to let them go. . . . . perhaps ever!
