Follow me, and I will follow you. I will never read your posts and rarely like anything about you. But, you know. Numbers… It is all about numbers. And it will look good on your profile. On mine too. Obviously. Follow me, and I will follow you. No matter how much, I really don’t care about you. I couldn’t care less about your account. I just need you to make me look better, more famous, more liked. And if you dare to call out my follow-for-follow strategy, I will call you fake and block you. I don’t want any superficiality on my account. Does this new filter show my good side? Like me! Follow me, and I will follow you.
I’m sorry, but I don’t play that game.
We all know this: we post something publicly, and we receive a generic comment asking us to visit their blog or profile and follow them. Truth be told, for me, it is an immediate deal-breaker. You see, I am a curious person, and I visit profiles when I see new names popping up; I also visit profiles and accounts of new people who comment, but not if they ask me to do it. I don’t know what that says about me, but I never do follow for follow. Maybe that is why my numbers are quite low. I am stubborn like that. 🤷♀️
