Meeting your blog followers is something that doesn't happen very often - at least for me. We all have little square-shaped pictures of our followers on the sidebar or header/footer of our blogs. Some people don't click the "Follow" button but still view our blogs each day and leave comments. And lots of those little square-shaped images don't view or comment on your blog anyway. Which leads me to believe that the "Follow" button is not a very accurate way to show who truly follows your blog.
Anyway, back to the point of this post. I have interacted with a few followers of my blog in recent times.
Jenny, over at knees and paws sent us a pillow from her little shop on her blog and we received it a couple of days ago . . .
It was nice to feel that Jenny was very much 'alive' and our friendship was enhanced with the receipt of this gift.
Last week I went to Robert's house here in Kuantan. He's from the Netherlands and lives here with his wife and children. It was great to meet him and spend some time at his beautiful house. I discovered that he, like me, loves nature so I hope to go on some interesting walks up hills with him in the future!

At Robert's house was another one of my followers, named John, with his wife Beverley, from Australia. I have since met John and his wife again at MS Garden Hotel on Monday, and today we invited them to our home for a BBQ lunch. They are lovely people and we enjoyed their company immensely. I am planning for John to do a guest post here soon so you all can get to know this lovely man a little better. We share the same interest and views of Kuantan and want to help this town keep moving and progressing in the right direction.

It's great to actually meet in person those people who follow your blog. It brings them and your blog to life. I now have renewed motivation to continue working hard on my blog and have a great hope to continue meeting more of my followers in the future.
Have you ever met any of your blog followers? How did you feel?
