WordPress Wish List

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.

We read to learn, to feel, to laugh, to understand others. We write to teach, express, communicate, to inspire others. I created Invisible Ink as an outlet of sorts, an area where I can organize the chaos; a place where hopefully I can be true to myself, and my readers. Writing is personal, it takes a brave and dedicated soul to formulate a piece and then share it with the world. That being said, I get just as much out of reading other's work as I do sharing mine ( I am always open to manuscript review swaps, just send me a message). Words read off a page evoke emotions. When taken out of context, or through an out of focus lens - anyone can mold the words, shifting their meaning to fit their agenda or distorted outlook. Staying true to form and myself, I won't censor my content, but I will censor my audience. Whatever lens you happen to be reading this through - I hope you enjoy!

One thought on “WordPress Wish List

  1. I’m more interested in learning if someone is actually following me or not on WP. I have over 1000 followers, but less than 100 hits per day, even with new posts, and many of those followers have been spam sites, so how many people are actually following me? It’s difficult to tell.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
