Today I thought I’d blog about one of the most stressful things about blogging. If you haven’t read the title yet, no, it’s not about trying to stick to your schedule and rushing to finisish the post before midnight like you said you would, and no, it’s not when you spend hours and hours tagging people.
This post is about accidental following.
When you accidentally click that conveniently placed follow button when you’re only trying to do something else, anything other than this. But suddenly you’re a follower, someone who likes this persons blog and would like to receive every notification about what they’re posting. Dilemma.
You want to unfollow, because although this said person’s blog is probably really good, it’s just not for you. But you’d feel terrible, because a notification is still going to be sent, ‘Very Punny is now following your blog.’ And that person gets really excited (because I’m so famous) and goes to makes sure it’s true and-
-And I’m gone from the following list, because it was just not meant to be.
In reality, the person may not even care or not even bother to check, and eventually forget about you, but it still pains me.
Do any of you have the same problem?
