A thought in reply to: Followers on Microblog – Ron Chester’s Personal Blog

Ron Chester lays out an approach to finding people to follow on Micro.blog.

I like Ron’s four strategies, although I might call them four stages of evolution as I went through a very similar process—and still do. Strategies 2 and 4 are the ones that I find most rewarding.

The concluding paragraphs of Ron’s post, however, have some real gold. In particular:

There are no visible scores on Microblog. This is a very good thing. It means I can just concentrate on posting things others might find interesting and then being interested in things I might find posted by others. There’s no way to tell who’s popular, nor a way to game a system to look more popular. I hope that doesn’t change.

I hope that others might see this post, and choose to follow Ron on Micro.blog, or maybe to subscribe to Ron’s new blog on Blot.im.

If you’re a Micro.blog user looking for people to follow, take a look at Ron’s post, and perhaps also take a look at Colin Walker’s Webmentions directory, or perhaps my webmention directory.

  1. @desparoz Thanks so much for your kind comments about my blog post. “Real gold.” Wow! I didn’t know you had a webmention directory too. When I go to Strategy 4, I will surely check it, as well as Colin’s! Thanks for your support.

  2. @desparoz “The concluding paragraphs … have some real gold” – that was my very much conclusion, some great points made. Oh, and thanks for the plug 😉 It’s good to see people getting use out of the directory.

  4. @Ron No worries. I like what you’re doing with your Blot.im blog.

    I’ve been giving serious thought to moving my whole blog over to Blot, but Webmentions in general, and the Webmentions Directory by @colinwalker in particular, are 2 of the biggest draws keeping me on WordPress.
