Don’t bother. I’m not going to follow your blog, read your shit, or “like” you back on an automatic quid-pro-quo basis. Engage with me as a novelist, writer, fan, friend, or whatever. Comment. Send me an email. Offer to be a beta reader. Tell me what you write and read.

But don’t slap a little star next to my name because it happened to be at the top of your WordPress feed. It bugs me.

That is all.
