I follow a lot of blogs. Some blogs (like those that have to do with the publishing industry) I follow because I think they are valuable resources that other authors would appreciate. Other blogs I follow are from writers and authors whose work I truly enjoy and some have to do with personal interests.
And I do make an effort to read the blogs I follow-even if I don't stop to comment.
But I do not auto-follow.
Authors Promoting Authors has quite a handful of Followers and some of you have been with us from the very beginning back-when an idea of mine was just an experiment.
