Are you a follower or leader?
I've noticed recently that a few blogs have added a widget that shows the number of "followers" the blog has.
When did blogging become a popularity contest?
Is a blog with a lot of followers better or more important than a blog with none?
To find an answer to this question I turned to that well known sage of social media Mr Bob Dylan.
His classic recording Subterranean Homesick Blues gave me the answer:
"Don't follow leaders, watch the parking meters."
