If You Follow My Blog (Please) Do It Publicly

Just a few days ago I was perusing through other blogs that are in some way related to mine, those who are fashion-based or have similar qualities to mine and out of curiosity I clicked on each respective bloggers' profile and I was somewhat surprised that most of these folks follow my blog privately. I look at the amount of followers I gain everyday, in some occasions I gain more followers than others, and I'm ok with that. But if I really thought about the amount of people that follow my blog, it would add up to more than 49 followers as it indicates on the side column widget. Perhaps even 10 or so more. I never understood why would this server would even have that option. Are some of these people embarrassed to be seen as a follower? Are they trying to keep an anonymous alias? I don't really know the answer, if there is one (let me know if you have one on the comment section). I love meeting new people, that's just part of my personality. Therefore, I wished the people who follow me would do it publicly, not privately so I know who you are and what your blog(s), if you have any, is all about. The amount of views or hits my blog gets is something I can't control, of course, the more the better, but I do keep track of it. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a control freak, but I'd like to know what is going on at all times. 

And one last thing, if you haven't noticed yet, I been getting spam on the blue box dubbed "Give Me Some Love" which was initially meant for you guys to drop me a line vs. dropping a comment on a post. The spammers are spamming daily, which is ok, because they are unconsciously giving me more views and hits, but I wish you guys don't click on them, most of the time they're just pointless ads and even worse can harm your computer with spyware or viruses, so don't do it, unless you have to. 

As always I'll promise to be a good blogger and update daily, or twice a day. I'm working on this piece that is going to get some tongues wagging so just wait and see.
