I seriously love this post! You are so right–gaining followers is a terrifying thing sometimes. Congratulations on a great start!
After a single blog post, I’ve gained a few followers.
The thought that complete strangers actually care what I might have to say induces a desire to create quality content, which is quite a feat in itself. I don’t even know these people and they don’t even know me, but I fear that I may take it as a personal insult if I lose a follower after posting again.
I realize now that this is not something I need to worry about. I have no one to impress but myself.
Yet I believe that a craving for quality is not a bad thing, so I will do my best to please.
Thanks for your interest!
