From Yvonne’s site:
I’ve wanted to start a meme like this for a long time. It’s “Anything Goes on Saturday”. It’s a chance to choose any topic you want and talk about it on Saturday – it can be about a book, TV show, movie, a recipe or just an update on your week. Whatever you choose.

Topic: Following blogs…What do you do in this situation?
There are days when I notice the number of followers I have and am amazed…truly amazed. I remember how excited I was when I had my first follower, it was Vicki, my mentor, from Reading At The Beach. Where did all these followers come from and when? Some of them I know because they leave me a note in the comment section stating that they a new follower and sometimes even telling me why, and in return, I usually email them back thanking them and then visit their blog and become a follower of their blog. However, and here is my question and dilemma, what do you do if a person leaves such a note and you visit their blog and search, and search to find something of shared similar likes for and just can’t find one. Do you follow anyway? Or do you respond to their comment explaining why you aren’t following their blog after they have chosen to follow your’s? Is there a blogging etiquette regarding this issue? How would you handle it? What would you do?
