Maybe it’s just me? I think I’m a little bit paranoid, sometimes? Lately I called a bank because their ATM looked suspicious: some strange plastic appendixes, where their shouldn’t be any, at least in my opinion … You know, that degree of paranoia.
False alarm, by the way.
Yesterday and today I did get, by my standards, a huge amount of new followers. Usually I’m quite happy with that. But as I looked closer, almost all of their blogs have only one topic: the secret of making money with blogging. The posts are pretty bad, the writing, as well as the overall appearance. And of course their secret isn’t revealed in the first post nor in the second or third.
After the fifth new follower, thats being you: Super Nate, I came to the conclusion that this is just a new clever way to spam real bloggers. Auf Dummenfang gehen, we would say in German. Maybe if I had followed a link here and a link there I would finally be encouraged to order something for a ridiculous low price.
Hopefully WP.com will get rid of this soon. A spam checker for followers?
Might be, that you (my beloved and real new follower) can make a living by blogging and are so generous to share your secret. And that you even pick my lesser self to follow … geez … I guess that’s no one … or …
To every real person out their, which I have falsely accused, I apologise sincerely. It’s just my twisted mind.
