I have never been able to figure out what following someone or having someone follow you does. It isn't like you get to IM your followers or anything like that. Is it that only your followers seem private messages you post? I mean I don't see normal Kinja blog posts and I doubt anyone following me sees mine. Also I see some people following me who I don't follow. Some I find odd like Rebecca Rose aka BurtReynoldsIsMySpiritGuide from her GT days. I don't follow her and she follows me. I don't have an issue with it but with all she's doing I'm not sure why she would choose to randomly follow a regular poster like me, especcially when I don't follow her. Not trying to make this about one person mind you. I just don't see how this system works.
