How To Gain 1000 Followers? I Have No Idea Really, But It’s Happened – Thank You For Flying With Steve Says…

hiIt’s been just over two years since I decided to start this blog and it’s one of the best things I have ever done. Steve Says… has now reached a new milestone as it’s just achieved it’s 1000 follower so I’d like to take this opportunity to mark this occasion…

The last time I did a follower’s milestone post it was when I reached 300 point. I was amazed then so you can imagine how amazed I am now that over 1000 people have clicked and decided to follow me!

Of course, I would love to thank each and everyone of you personally but that’s sadly simply not possible. Instead, this post is to show my appreciation to each and everyone of you – thank you all! Also, since I’ve gained a lot of followers over the last week or so I’d also like to introduce myself properly to all of them as well as remind all the regular readers perhaps why they decided to follow me in the first instance (they might then subsequently click unfollow as they are also reminded what a bad decision it was but I’ll take that chance!)

I really just want to share my ideas, findings and general reflections with anyone that has time to listen – music, photos, rants – there’s no real theme to my blog and it’s all a bit random (and dare be as bold to say awesome?).

I currently work in the IT industry as:

  • IT Productivity Coach (they say)
  • Service Delivery (they say)
  • Desktop Support (they say)
  • IT Ninja (I say)

However, I’ll let you be the judge…

I love music so it’s quite handy that I also have my own music blogpopmusic.001

I also love cats, Bang & Olufsen, Doctor Who, Superman, the 1980s and wine.

I live with my partner Greg which is fun sometimes


Our two cats are called Bingo Disco



That’s pretty much all there is to say about me and I really look forward to finding out more about everyone of you. What type of posts can you find here then? Here’s a selection of some of my favourite posts.


Well…I don’t take myself too seriously most of the time and there’s a fair amount of nonsense…

If this is your “bag, baby” then keep reading and share me with other random and awesome people whose bag you think it might also be. I have already said that I can’t thank everyone personally but I couldn’t not write up this post without giving a big shout to a few fellow bloggers whose support has been amazing over the last two years and I urge you to visit their blogs too because they are the best!

  1. Congratulations. WordPress tells me that I have 2K email followers, but I don’t trust that number, as they never seem to respond to my new posts. I am waiting until the Followers via WordPress number breaks 2K to celebrate readership on any of my blogs. Right now, I am just happy when I get likes and comments.

  2. Big, big congratulations on this milestone Steve, and thank you very much for the mention. Just keep entertaining us with your wit and I’m sure the next 1,000 followers will soon be knocking on your door. I’ll put the sherry on ice and make a quiche to celebrate.

  3. Wow, that’s fantastic! Well done. I’m on 200-odd, all told and I’m not sure how many have unfollowed – how do you find out, except by watching the number? I’m just thrilled to be nearing 1,000 views…. Cheers to the next 1,000 followers!

    1. Thank you. I just watch the number. I’m not overly concerned about the number really as probs a lot are spam and some people who don’t really follow but I’m happy all the same. Thanks for following and hope you enjoy!

      1. Will do, Steve, but like you, tend to not be overly concerned with numbers. Also they don’t stick in my head, math not being a strong point. Words, well, that’s another matter…

  4. Congrats to you! You forgot to mention that you are videographer, if that’s a real word. I like the updated bio, since I have been forming my own ideas of who you are! 🙂 I do wonder how you manage to post so often, but after watching your IT video, I realize you don’t have a job any more. Very happy for you, regardless!

  5. I love random! (although I may have to draw the line at Aqua…)
    Congratulations on hitting 4 figures… Does this make me 1001? I’ll claim it does because I like its symmetry 🙂 I look forward to reading more!

      1. Yay for symmetry – which kind of contradicts my love of random I suppose but then I am a little odd. I have a guilty pleasure of loving Barbie Girl but that’s as far as dived into the Aqua tank – I’ve probably missed out on some classics 😉
