Blogging friends, I need your help. Wendy from http://wendyswritingnow.blogspot.co.uk/ has kindly nominated me for the Liebster Award. Now, according to the rules of the award, I must nominate 11 other blogs which I feel worthy of the award – but they must be blogs with under 200 followers.
My question, learned bloggers, is how can I be sure how many followers a blog has? On the list of blogs that I follow, WordPress gives me a number of followers for that blog, but I am confused by this figure, given that blogs I know have a massive following sometimes have a very low number of followers according to the list. Does that mean WordPress only counts the WordPress followers, not the Blogspot followers and so forth? Some of the individual blogs themselves have a number of followers listed on their pages, but some don’t. So how can I be sure? I don’t want to offend someone by nominating them for the award when in fact they have 6,000 followers I don’t know about!
So, a) if you know of a foolproof way of checking the number of followers per blog, please could you let me know, and b) if you have a blog with fewer than 200 followers which you think I might have missed, please send me a link.
