When I started this, I genuinely just wanted to help people get followers. And for the most part I have enjoyed it. I’ve never asked for anything in return, but a little gratitude goes a long way.
As much as I’ve enjoyed doing my Wednesday shoutouts, I’ve also become disheartened every time I’ve done them. Only one person knew this, but now it’s here. I don’t expect shoutouts. I don’t expect us to be best friends or whatever….but if you can’t even say thank you for something nice done for you, then yes, I find it upsetting. And every time people thank “everyone”, and I’m not mentioned, it’s also kind of upsetting. I love doing it, and no, I don’t expect anything in return, but I feel this way anyway….
So, for the benefit of my healthy state of mind, I’ve decided that I will no longer be adding names to the list every time I get a new follower with under 700 followers. And I will probably not be doing a shoutout for everyone on the already existing list.
At first, I felt bad that I did so many and wouldn’t be able to do everyone….so I’ve continued doing it much longer than I wanted to. I never really had a time line, but I can’t do it forever. It’s become more of a chore than anything…so I hope you can all forgive me for not wanting to keep doing it.
I hope people won’t unfollow me for this decision, and I hope I helped at least some of you in the past. Thanks for reading!
