I admittedly have limited experience with all of the different blogging sites. I have only tried a couple, and once I experimented with WordPress – I was satisfied and stuck with it.
I like the ease of sharing, I like the templates available, I like the scale of it (in terms of other users), I generally like the support they offer. Widgets are always fun to incorporate and help utilize other social media tools.
But what I really really really would like to see from WordPress is an easier way to tell if the blogs you follow are following you back. Yes, I know you can look in the “blogs I follow” on your admin page to find the people you are following. And I know you can look in your site stats to find the people who are following you. But there is no easy way to determine in one spot if the blog you are following is following you back.
I’m a follow for followback kinda girl. I like viewing things that interest me, as well as expanding my horizons on topics that don’t at first glance. I’m open minded. I like some blogs more than others, and have made a few great colleagues from the blog world. All that aside, I’m not really into supporting those who don’t support me as well. It comes off as well….egotistical and unfriendly. I’m not looking for someone to “like” and/or comment on every post, just a stop by every now and again – as I do with others when an interesting blog title pops up in my email.
There is an app for instagram called Followers. I love it. It shows who follows you back, who doesn’t. It shows who you followback, and who you don’t. It shows who stops following you, as well as other paid for insights. The app is free, and my deep dark wish for wordpress is to create something like this, so if any if you WordPress genius gods are reading…pretty pretty please with sugar on top. What you have is great and all, but I’m a girl, and I always want more.
