I never got any kind of notification from WordPress telling me that my blog had reached a significant milestone. I found out by scrolling down my blog’s stat page and discovering that, at some point on Wednesday (I think), I reached 2,000 followers. Woo hoo!
I admit that I was surprised that I didn’t get any notification. The last time I received a notification from WordPress was back in October when I was notified that my blog had reached 1337 followers. Now, almost six months later, I reach 2,000 followers and not a peep.
Maybe it’s because WordPress knows that I don’t actually have 2,007 people who are following my blog. Based upon regular interactions (e.g., likes and comments), I may actually have maybe two or three dozen people who are legitimately following my blog, since I never hear from probably 1,950 of my 2,007 “followers.”
Anyway, regardless of whether you really are a follower of my blog, or if you’re just someone who randomly or accidentally clicked “follow,” thank you.
On a different, yet related topic, didn’t WordPress used to have something it called a “trophy case,” where you could see all of the notifications for things like number of posts, likes, followers, etc. that you achieved? What happened to that? If it’s still around, I can’t figure out how to access it. Do any of you know?
