It’s amazing that if you have a great many followers that you only seem to get a fraction of them interacting. Sometimes having more following means less connecting. Quality seems to be the ideal whereas quantity is not all it’s cracked up to be. So the more the merrier might not apply in every situation.
For a personal blogger the rules are different than that of a business or commercial blogger. Making friends is something they both want to do but for different reasons. I have a lot of followers but seem to connect with just a small portion of those who are following. It’s funny how that works.
