Lockdown: #followonenewblog

Pete has always been a supportive and generous member of this blogging community. This idea of reaching out and following at least one new blogger is a great idea, especially in this time of quarantine and isolation. Thank you for encouraging us to expand our community, Pete.


Most of us already follow too many blogs to keep up with, I know.

I follow 112 other bloggers, and more than 60% of those are active, and posting regularly. Making sure I read their posts and make a relevant or pertinent comment takes up a lot of time. But it is important to me to be a ‘good follower’, and keep up the community spirit in our circle of bloggers.

I get asked all the time to follow new bloggers, and sadly have to decline. Sometimes it is because they are blogging about hair and make-up, something that is of no interest to me, or their blog might be evangelically religious, something else I have always avoided.

But the main reason I don’t follow when asked is because of the amount of blogs I already follow, and the time that takes. I am sure that this applies to everyone…

  1. Thanks this was a great article and I am going to take up the challenge. I admitted to Pete that I have not always been a good follower. Time and these circumstances are making some permanent changes in me though and this is one of them.

  2. Thanks, Maggie. I hope that most bloggers agree it’s a good idea. Something quite positive, when we are all surrounded by a very big negative. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
