Check Out the Cool Kids

One monumental task accomplished, countless others to go

So call me OCD or whatever you want, but when I joined Rachael Harrie's great Platform Building Crusade, I knew I wanted to follow all the people that signed up.   I knew I'd get great tips, book reviews, and all sorts of information from this group of people.

And then I found out that 215 people are taking part!

First off, that's really amazing.

Secondly, holy crap what have I gotten myself in to?

Well, I've finally gotten around to adding everyone to my feed list, and now want to go around and comment on everyone's blog.  I have a sneaky suspicion this will take a while.

Perhaps a very long while.

So, if you're a fellow crusader that's come across my blog, or even just a random visitor, feel free to leave a comment and introduce yourself. 

PS--I've now met my limit of followers on Blogger and am now just adding people to my google reader.  Does that mean that people I follow from now on don't get a boost in numbers?

Hey crusader! Thanks for the follow on my blog. I hear you about the crusade--it's ginormous this year!

Hello, fellow crusader! It's crazy, isn't it? There's so many people. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who's stoked!

Hi fellow crusader! I'm a little confused on that Blogger vs Google Reader thing too. I thought as long as you click the Follow button on someone's site it meant you were following someone--and it automatically put the content on the Google Reader. Hmm. I didn't know about a limit...yikes!

Anyway, nice to meetcha! :) Yes, it WILL take a while to plow through that intimidating crusade list...I've only gotten to a dozen so far (trying to finish my WiP!).

I think I'm finally following everyone. I'm following over 500 blogs, possibly six. I have no clue what the cap is or if there is no boost if it only goes to google reader.

I've taken to commenting on 20 different crusaders blog each day, and then on the weekends I hope to catch up to those I missed. It is alot of people to comment on, plus my college classes, and my kids...yeah its a lot. But I think It might be worth it even if I only get to each person once a week.

I'm not an official Crusader but I'm doing the same thing. Have you joined up with the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge 2011 yet? The two pretty well go hand in hand and many bloggers are doing both. Check it out if you haven't done so already.

Hey! Ok, I always assumed that once you clicked follow it would show up in both Blogger's dashboard and Google Reader (but I've hardly used Google Reader so I'm not sure).

Anyway, I'm impressed that you've managed to follow everyone already! So far I've just been following back everyone who's followed me because I haven't had a time yet when I've sat down with the whole list to follow everyone... But that time is coming soon!

Fellow crusader here... MAN, I'm impressed you've gotten everyone in your feed already. I am working my way through... trying to comment as I go, but I am just now to YOU--#78... I can't believe how nuts this round is!

I'm STILL making my way down the (long) list! Zoinks. o.0

But, I am now your newest follower. :)

Hugs,
Lola

Hmmm, weird. I follow thousands (really) of blogs and have over 700 followers and I've never heard of a limit? Did google/blogger email you?

Maybe it just limits how many you follow/day? To stop spamming?

Anyway, I've never heard of that.

Hello fellow crusader. I'm a new follower. Nice to meet you.

Claire Gregory said...

Hey Crusader! Following you back from All the World's Our Page. You're amazing to get onto it all so fast- I still feel like I'm running behind a car that just took off without me :P

Carol Riggs said...

Yay, the follower button finally cooperated and now I'm following you, buddy crusader!

Deniz Bevan said...

Hey there fellow crusader! I've been wondering about that follower thing too - I didn't even know there was a limit...

Hi Crusader :)

Thanks for commenting on my blog :) I don't even have google follower and I have no way of checking how many people have signed up for my RSS feed (the joys of wordpress :) ) so don't worry about it.

I look forward to seeing more of your blog and you :D
