I've lost a follower. I don't know when, where, or why, but it was sometime last week. Some of the more popular blogs have enough followers I'm sure they wouldn't have noticed if one dropped off along the way, but we ONLY HAD SEVEN. So I'm bummed and feel like I've been dumped, which is stupid, because I don't even know who the follower WAS!
On top of the feelings of rejection, I'm upset because I don't like even numbers. There is no order in my life, my desk drawers, my closet, my house, my brain...so why should numbers fit into a nice little package? It bugs me that there are SIX followers, not because it's a paltry amount and I feel unwanted in the blogosphere, but because it's the number SIX.
So, here's my goal--gain at least one new follower this week to get me back up to Lucky Number 7, OR increase my followers to another suitable odd number that I can live with. Now, mind you, I don't plan to do anything exciting or drastic to increase those numbers. I'll just be here, writing if something strikes me, commenting on my followed blogs if I can add to discussion, but there will be no fireworks, no giveaways, no awards, no "bells and whistles".
If you're reading and not following, come over to the dark side and add me to your list. If you're lurking and not commenting or following, come out of the shadows and make yourself known. And if YOU'RE the person formerly known as Follower Number 7, at least write me a "Dear Jane" letter to dump me properly. I thought we meant more to each other than that.
