I’d obviously be lying if I said that this doesn’t mean anything to me. I would also be lying if I said that all 100 of those followers were actually following me. Some are spam’y type accounts, some seem to be the “I’ll follow you in hopes you follow me” type, others I have NO idea why they followed me and then there are the ones like you who are reading this.
Now that I am a certified “Power to Contend With”, I figure it is time to unveil my Secret Agenda (no, not taking over the world, I blew the cover on that idea with that Disgusting Popcorn post). Of course, that would entail actually HAVING a secret agenda. It sounds like a lot of work and hassle. If any of you have good ideas for Secret Agenda’s, feel free to leave them in the comments. I promise you though, if I do get a Secret Agenda, you all will be the first ones to know it. Let’s face it, a Secret Agenda is just pointless if you can’t share it with people who can marvel at your cleverness, right?
On a more serious side, I’m pretty happy with my numbers. Numbers of likes, numbers of comments, number of followers, number of people I follow. I have an interaction rate that is above 10% and my time at Booklikes taught me that anything above 5% is doing well. I am content with the people I interact with. You provide me with much mind fodder and enough comments to keep my tiny little “social” tank filled. WordPress leaves me alone, so it doesn’t get much better.
I started using WordPress back in October full time because Booklikes was apparently on the skids. I have found interesting people here, have great conversations back and forth and am happy with how things are turning out.
