Four years ago when I started my blog I took the suggestion to connect
it to several branches of social media as this method was said to gain
more followers and better overall exposure.
This scenario didn’t happen – number of faithful followers grew

I wasn’t about to purchase followers as to me that’s a cheater’s way

Now for a little questionnaire:
My score ranks quite low – laughable since folks state how you should
refrain from the word ‘never’.
Country gals (I’m one) don’t share these interests rather am happy
NOT being superficial.
I asked myself if I should’ve done this / that and the honest
answer is ‘NO’.
