It’s easy to get caught up in the stats of followers and page views and it happened to me, too. But then I realised I was doing something wrong and started encouraging commenters on my blog. I tracked back every single commenter and took the time to read and comment on their stuff. These people might not be very many, but they’re the backbone of my following and many of them have become great friends. Lovely article, thanks for sharing!
