a big thank you for the massive response to my last post related to blogging etiquette.
All advice,suggestions and opinions have very much helped to clarify my doubts.
As the question of followers and number of followers has been mentioned frequently in the comments received, I would just like to add that although I respect other bloggers points of view I shall continue to prefer being able to see the number of followers I have on my list.I find this extremely motivating and inspiring. In my case there is no economical reason why I wish to have followers but pure selfishness. I feel it is like knitting a tiny community together and it produces great satisfaction to think that there are some people out there who read my posts and who wish to comment on them and likewise offer the same. I shall continue to wish for a reciprocal contact and as stated on my last post I shall always prefer quality over quantity.
