    Finally made it to 700 followers.  I had been sitting at 698 or 699 since the Google slap down.  I suspect many have been closing accounts.  For every one I picked up, I would lose another.  But maybe things are looking up, although my traffic is still down quite a bit.

      I know what you mean, KG!  The bad thing is when you have to flag a new follower because of their terrible writing ability!  smile

      I doubt it is because of closed accounts, it is more because people follow blindly and expect follow back; when that doesn't happen, they quit following you. Besides, what is the real meaning of having more followers?

    Congratulations Kidgas! The Panda slap does seem to have curbed people's enthusiasm for following somewhat!

    Well you've gained one more mate, anyone who seems to be able to tell me how to make money online has got to be worth a read!

    Maybe I should switch tactics (and subjects) accordingly and improve on my rather paltry 38 followers!

    I know what you mean about a new follower and then lose 1 or 2. Guess some have closed accounts.

    Congrats. I am getting close to 300 followers. Most of the time, I may lose a follower, then gain one.
