This morning when I logged in, I noticed that I had another new follower. I’ve had a lot of new followers recently and now it seemed my follower had joined with 102 others in being beguiled by my blog.

But this new follower had a lot in common with many of the previous followers, in that the follow had appeared without an actual visit to the blog.

So not beguiled by the blog.

I went through the list of followers and checked the sites their avatar led me to, deleting those which were obviously just cut and paste, unoriginal or generic marketing bollocks blogs. I also deleted a few god-botherer ones too, just to see if I’d be struck down by a thunderbolt for daring to.

Nothing so far.

Anyway, this blog now has 63 followers. I know deleting followers is ultimately a waste of time–they’ll be back soon–and the number is meaningless really, but at least it has exercised my typing fingers this morning.


Thank you for visiting Scribblans today. Sorry it probably wasn’t very good.
This bit of text here used to be me wittering on and effectively begging you to share the post, but I have decided not to bother with all that for 2021. Most people ignore it anyway.
