The Golden Eagle said...

Simon: Thank you! :)

Old Kitty: Thanks! :D

Summer: Thank you!

Sarah: I wish Google Friend Connect didn't push the avatar-less followers to the back. It makes them a lot hard to find that way!

Thanks! :)

Madeline: Thank you!

J.L.: I saw someone else linking and thought it was a good idea; and since it's one of the few things I can do for my followers, at least this way they all get noticed. :)

Laila: LOL. Thanks!

Deborah: Thank you. :)

Dana: Thanks for giving me the link! I wasn't sure of your URL, and it didn't come up on your profile.

Bethany: Thanks!

I know--it's a number I didn't expect to reach so soon!

Jane and Lance: Thank you for following; I really appreciate it!

Beth: Thank you! :)

Gracie: Crazy--I didn't expect to reach 700 this fast! :D


As for advice: I'm no expert here, but there are a few things I try to do.

Follow, comment, and participate in things. Blogfests are an easy way of finding people who share your interests, and most of the time there are a good number of people; easy enough to get around to, but also enough to find new friends. Starting or joining other kinds of events also helps.

That's auxiliary to commenting and following, though; those are the two most important things when it comes to getting readership, IMO. Also make sure that your site is easy to read and somehow unique so it catches the eye, just to be sure potential readers don't get chased away. :P (I used to have a crazy background and colors; didn't look so good.)

The Golden Eagle said...

Alex: Thank you!

Which, I'm sure, would quickly get done in by your own formidable forces. :P

Jenny: Thank you! :)

Peggy: Thanks so much for following me.

Charles: Thank you!

E.R.: So you're E. R. King . . . LOL. There was no link on your profile, so I wasn't sure who you were on GFC. :P

Thanks for following! :)

KarenG: Thanks!

Cherie: Thank you. :D

Susan: I'm not sure . . . but at the moment it looks like I might reach 1000 before the end of the year!

Michael: Thanks! :)

Li: Thanks!


It just seems like the best way I can do something for the people who follow me; giving them the spotlight in turn. :)

Kristal: I'm thrilled by the number. :)

Lydia: Thank you!

The Golden Eagle said...

Jules: Thank you!

No need to apologize for being busy; it's quite understandable. :) Life sometimes gets in the way of blogging.

Pamela Jo: Thanks!

I'll do my best. :)

Misha: Thank you!

Followers deserve the spotlight--I really do appreciate them!
