Blog Confusion

I’m not sure how or why ‘followers’ or ‘likes’ are added to my stats if I don’t get the views to match them.  Makes me think there are people who are perhaps just looking to promote their own blog.   I’m new to this gig.  Instead of liking will you please visit and then comment?   I’d love feedback on how to make this brand new blog of mine survive.  Seriously.  Thankful for the response I’ve had, but I’m all about authenticity.  Don’t like it if you haven’t read it.  Thanks!

PS- I WILL visit your blog!  Looking forward to it!
