In the absence of a 'who is following who' feature I thought it might be a good idea to write a list of the 200wad-ers I'm following, including the reason(s) they've earned my attention. 

(I'm not saying this is a critical feature, but if we ever do get some insight into who is following, it would be very cool to understand why our followers have chosen to follow us.) 

As an aside, there are people I should be following because I've enjoyed their writing, but, for whatever reason, never visited their profiles to click that big blue button... maybe we should get a new big blue button under our posts, right alongside 'Comment' and 'Reply' ;)

Without further ado, and in no particular order, here is my list:

@basilesamel - Only officially followed today. Turns out he's so consistent with his posts I thought I had already followed him.  Not a bad 'software craftsman' either ;)

@aravindhb4 - We had a nice exchange of ideas on one of his posts where he wrote about Victor Frankl. Wanted to make sure I keep up with his writings.

@keni - We've bumped into each other on various posts and comment sections. I like what she writes and that's a good enough reason.

@efran - I love the short, honest posts about his life. He has a down to earth approach and is enthusiastic about putting it all out there. A very genuine writer. 

@sandergroenlund - Like @efran, he's got some personal stuff going on. He's made some big life decisions lately and is living interesting times. Fun to see his updates. 

@jasonleow - He writes about interesting things, most recently about wabi-sabi. We had a long disagreement thread on one of his posts, but he was a gent about it. 

@danielmiller - He is writing a fictional story that he shares in parts, but also shares some interesting thoughts on minimalism. 

@antoniogaryjr. - I don't remember what posts I commented but it was worth the follow. He writes marketing-oriented content, but keeps posts simple and to the point.

@RealNegotiator - I think I like almost all of Mark's posts. The street smart series is a creative, story-driven take on lifehacks and winning mentality. Fun to read his very regular updates.

@timsubiaco - I'm enjoying his 'novella about a strange year' and he's very engaging on posts and comments. I also think he's right about not fighting men with pigtails

@jessica - Followed her back from the '20 things that make me smile' posts. Keep smiling!

@jeffriddall - Does not write too much web and marketing oriented stuff, and yet I started following because of his very concise post about SEO.

@lucjah - Well, what's to say. Lucjah is very far from conventional, but she is clearly enjoying pouring it out there with every update and I enjoy reading what's next.

@philh - Writes well and I really enjoyed the Vacation in Cannes story.  Also, seems to be in a relationship of sorts with @lucjah... 

@paulp - I was so amused by his Bob and the Cat story I had to follow. But looks like he hasn't been too active lately. Ah well. Fun while it lasted.

@abrahamKim - Based on some of his posts and comments, I'd say there's some 'synergy' between us. I wanted to follow and keep up. 

@brianball - I followed after reading what he wrote about getting back on the horse if you've fallen off. 

What about you, feel like sharing? Seems like this might be a good use of that big blue 'Reply' button.

      @danielmiller No problem! By the way, is your story written for 200wad, a chapter at a time, or is it sourced from existing material?

      @gabrielgreco only here, making it up as I go along! (Although I have had to create a flowchart to keep the timeline straight for myself.)

    @gabrielgreco Thanks for the kind words Gabriel! And this is a great topic for a daily post, I'll do that as well in the future, so thanks for the inspiration! ?

      @philh Yeah for sure, a good way to intro each other. I'm looking forward to your version.

    Ha I feel the same about you. I don't 'follow' you with the feature here on 200wad.com but since I come on here so much, I just make sure to check your profile at least twice a day for new posts. lol so I do in practice follow you.

      @abrahamKim It's also nice that it's still a small enough community so casual scrolling through the main list will regularly show familiar faces.

    @gabrielgreco wooow... amazing job! a lot of effort and such wonderful comments.
    And that's true (like with @keni) that we follow a lot of the same people. So I will check out the ones I dont know yet, there might be many wonderful surprises.
    Well, Im definitely less technically oriented, and so it's so great that you described why you follow whomever you follow
    And I feel honoured to be here. The way you described me pumped my ego a bit :-) Thank you.
    (I think Im too chaotic to make such a list, but maybe)

    @gabrielgreco Thanks for the follow/mention. I'll see what I can do about inserting a few posts on web/marketing in the not too distant future. Hope you find some of my other posts entertaining.

    @gabrielgreco I mostly write for myself and rarely read other's posts. https://200wordsaday.com/words/why-am-i-writing-200-words-a-day-26935c30c51b9f717
    I feel sorry for that now :(
    But thanks for the mention, I'm really glad and inspired! I'm gonna start reading posts and make my own list of interesting people soon. :)

      @aravindhb4 Everyone has their methods and reasons, nothing to feel sorry about. I would write either way, but I like the community and engagement aspect of 200wad quite a bit.

    @gabrielgreco - Awesome post. Thank you for the mention. I think we like most of the same type of posts and writers. You created a nice list of post that I want to look at in detail myself - marketing and SEO in particular. I will put that to good use.
    I accept the challenge to create the posts I enjoyed as well..

      @keni Just thought about how we don't have any idea whether people on here find our posts interesting enough to keep an eye out. I'm looking forward to yours, too, it's a good way to spread the knowledge and broaden horizons a bit.
