Well I must say that's a bit of a relief thank you for putting my mind at rest, it's good to know that I wasn't the only one to lose nearly a dozen followers overnight. Blogger should warn us about this I think, anyway in light of all your comments I have reinstated the follower thingy but It's at the bottom of my blog where I can't see it and worry when I see someone has flown the nest as it were.
As for my follower numbers you must realise that I have been blogging since the end of 2011 and for the first year I had practically none. Some blogs seem to be a hit overnight whereas for others it's a long slow process. Having said that the number of followers you have is not a good indication of whether your blog is popular, I follow many blogs who's follower numbers are quite small but the comments they receive are many. Surely that is a better way of knowing just how popular your blog is if people leave a comment you know that they are interested and will want to come back again.
Then again sometimes you receive no comments but if you look at your stats you can see that people have been and read your post but probably just haven't had the time to leave a comment or perhaps they are just lurkers who just like to browse.
I have noticed that many bloggers seem to have disappeared over the past year or so and that saddens me because I used to love to visit and see what they were up to, however there are always new blogs to explore when time allows, that is the main factor don't you think there is never enough of it.
Anyway I have found that many of the disappearing bloggers can be found on instagram probably because using instagram is a quicker way of doing things it's like a mini blog thing, take a photo add a little caption and that's it. I have been a member of instagram for quite a while but I keep forgetting about it maybe I will try and be more proactive this year I'm lindasolaiman on there if anyone wants to follow. Do you use it and what do you think?
I have decided to continue with the stash-link party and thank you to all of you who want to join in with the stash-busting. I'm going to take Preeti's idea and make it a fortnightly party and it will be launched on the second and fourth Sunday of each month so the next one will be this coming Sunday, I hope you will join in.
I'm hoping to show you pictures of my Moogly blanket soon if I can find any decent ones it's been so dull and I had to take them in a hurry.
Speaking of picture's do you like the one I have for my header, this was taken locally by my brother who is a fantastic photographer he makes even the dullest landscape look spectacular.
Have a great week. :)
