I just suddenly thought to check and found, much to my astonishment and delight, that I have 34 followers. Now, that may not be enough to conquer even a minor City-State, but still. Which realization made me wonder: am I evil for not being a follower? I subscribe to any blog that I like, meaning I get updates whenever there is a new post. I make comments anytime something grabs my attention. But I honestly never think to be a follower of anyone's blog. I don't really even know what it means. Should I? Is it a sign of respect or just something to put on your virtual lapel?
