Follow my blog, fellow hobo mamas

Hop on the freight car with me!

Have you noticed? Blogger has introduced the "Followers" widget that allows fellow Blogger users to show their allegiance to a particular blog. Well, you can follow anonymously as well, but that doesn't declare anything out loud and proud.

I've been following blogs left and right lately, because I love that the new posts show up on my Dashboard page as well as automatically being added to my Google Reader.

FollowersSo I decided to add the Follow widget to my own blog, in hopes of attracting some followers of my own. But I'm embarrassed to have so few public followers that I shamelessly added myself just so I could see the number tick from 2 to 3.

Please follow me. Please? I'll be your friend. I'll follow you back. I'm not a stalker, though -- honest. But I do read, and I even comment! Because what are blog friends for?

P.S. I thought it was cute when I was visiting a blog that her list of followers had the title "Stop following." (See above picture.) I thought it was quirky humor, like, "Hey, stop following me!" Then I realized it was on every blog that I followed, and I was curious that everyone had stolen the same joke. And then I realized that was Blogger's link for opting out of following. Oh.

P.P.S. Guess who found out you can add text to pictures in Photobucket. Life will never be the same.

I would totally follow you if I had time to figure out a) how to do that and then also maybe b) how to do Google Reader. But as I haven't done all THAT yet and have very little spare time these days to mess with it..yeah...not so much.

Maybe someday. I'm not scared by the technology factor so it's more the mental hump I have to get over of how much time is this going to take and what if I forget someone and they get mad or sad and what if I eff it up the first time and it takes forever to fix it and I don't have forever and have to leave it messy...anyway. Just FYI. Someday I'll try to get it worked out and follow you. Sorry!
