I just noticed today that I have 10. Yes, count them, 10 followers of my blog. And only one of those is a family member. 9 are people I do not even know (at least I do not recognize any of their user names).
I have no idea if these people actually read my blog on a regular basis, but they must have come across it at least once and thought it was interesting enough to "follow".
Had no idea I was so popular.
