THE MYSTERY OF THE MISSING FOLLOWERS FOLLOWED BY THE MYSTERY OF THE NEW FOLLOWERS

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Recently I had 242 followers. Then I had 241. Then I had 240.

I bemoaned the loss of followers in a post and before the day ended, I had 250 followers.

I couldn't see that anyone had disappeared, and I don't see anyone new.

Life is a wonderful mystery.

You still have plenty of time to sign up for the Favorite Christmas Memory Bloghop on Monday, December 22nd. Sir Shady, have you signed up yet? If you haven't, someone will come to your door to give you a spanking.






Sign up after you accept my infinities of love, dear friends. I can't wait to read your posts.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  1. I love that card. I still don't understand what a blog hop is. So, I did not sign up.

    1. You can Google "bloghop" to get an explanation.

  2. Hello, dear Janie Junebug! Inspector Shecky here. I've come to probe the mystery of the vanishing followers and their equally puzzling return (and anything else that needs probing).

    First, to wrap up old business, I was delighted to read your reply to my comment on your previous post and to learn that you pee submissively when excited. You and I have a bright future together, Janie Junebug. Let us elope at once!

    I bribed a Blogger official and obtained secret documents which reveal that you lost followers the days I was out of town and unable to comment on your blog. They further reveal that your numbers went back up the day I returned. Coincidence? I think not!

    I already shared a Favorite Christmas Memory on Cherdo's blog and I fully intend to share another on your blog the day of the hop.

    Here's hoping you have a safe and happy weekend, dear Janie. Please give Franklin lotsa lubbins for me!

    1. Coincidence? No way. I don't believe in coincidences. It has to be you. Where do you want to go when we elope? If you say England, I'm in. For about a month, as long as you pay and we go places I want to visit. Franklin has had a lotta lubbin today. He rode in Willy Dunne Wooters' 'stang with us, and then the three of us went for a long walk around the hood.

  3. Followers come and go I've noticed, but 250 is better than 240, so a good thing in the end.

    1. I don't think the follower counter works because I don't see any new followers. I could look at the entire list and count how many followers I have, but I don't care enough to spend that much time on it.

  4. I don't worry too much about my followers, because it's not the same thing as those who've hung around and stayed readers, but a drop of two and immediate increase of ten? Spooky.

    1. I don't think the follower thingy works. I probably have five or six followers in reality, and the other people who comment are figments of my imagination. Their comments aren't even here. I just think they are.

  5. At least your follower numbers are now moving in the right direction.

    1. Until the follower thing gets a correct count--which may not ever happen.

  6. Had a good laugh at your illustration!

  7. I'm too new at this to get all the way up into the 200s. But I've decided I'll put my stuff out there and not worry about whether there are followers or Google+ers, etc. Got my thinking cap on the for the challenge.

    1. The number of followers mystifies me. The only time I've fretted about it was when I couldn't get past thirteen followers.

  8. Followers come and go - much like a chest infection.

    Love the card :)

    1. That's cute. A chest infection or a rash.

  9. Following you still. I've never done a blog hop. Don't know what is required.

  10. I have one follower who seems to have followed me twice. I suspect that's it.

    1. A couple of times I've accidentally followed myself. Once I followed myself twice.

    2. I didn't like me and stopped following.

  11. I rarely write anymore, and therefore my readership has gone down. So I don't put much stalk in the follower count... plus I know many no longer blog anymore, so there's that.

    All that said, kudos to you!! I never managed to break 200. :)

    1. I still look forward to reading your posts. You are a very busy lady. If you had time to go after more followers, then more people would love you.

  12. I never pay close attention, I guess. Glad you got more new followers. :)

    1. I'm not so sure I did. I don't see anyone new.

  13. Followers come and go. I used to fret about it, but I find they still come and go.

    1. I fret more about my spices being in alphabetical order. Furthermore, coasters must be returned to the coaster holder on the lazy susan. We need some sense of decorum around here.

  14. Don't worry. I'll never go away. That's not necessarily a good thing. Ask Mrs. Penwasser.

    1. I already asked her. She wanted to know if I would take you off her hands. No, Mrs. Penwusser, I said. Fuck off and take that asshole with you.

  15. Our follower number fluctuates wildly. And half of them are probably bloggers that haven't even signed into a blogger account in years anyway. We stopped keeping track of that number ages ago. The most important number is screaming female fans that send us their underwear. That number is currently zero, but a guy can dream.

    1. Would you like a pair of my pink granny panties?

  16. You know I rarely look at how many followers I have just saying

    1. I don't think the number is accurate anyway.

  17. Ah crap, I did sign up for the blog hop. The sad part is that I don't know if I'll be able to visit all of the others because I'll be traveling that day (and probably, subsequently complaining about air travel whenever I arrive).
    I never could figure out the whole follower thing, especially since the number of followers never translated to pageviews. Let go and let Google. That's the mantra of Blogger.

    1. I have about the same number of pageviews per day as I do followers, but I know some non-followers sneak in. Sorry you will travel because I don't want to read your bitching about it. Write something sweet, Pickleope. Something that brings out the goodness in our hearts.

  18. Hmmm, I don't know if I'm actually a Follower? I mean, yeah, I'm a follower, but a Follower under the auspices of Google? Not sure. So, if not, you can count yourself at 251! Yay! :)

    1. You show up. You're a follower.
