Let’s be honest for a second, does anyone don’t enjoy seeing our followers count increase?
I’m no saint here on this either. I have to admit that seeing my followers count increasing on a daily basis, on top of the much appreciated encouragement, does give a little boost to the ego. The affirmation that your blog and articles is connecting with a growing audience.
No doubt, there will be a group of people who genuinely enjoy your blogs. But it is still important not to stray from your heart.
Do not make the number of followers become a do-or-die goal to be the reason for your blog. Remember the time when you started your blog because you have so much conviction for your message? Never, ever, forget that.
The most enjoyable part of blogging is to forget about whether people follows you or not.
So, smile, open your heart, and keep writing.
