I can’t say that about WordPress itself, because of all the constant glitches, but I assume that my numbers are growing, due to new followers.
I reached the 3,000 yesterday, which is totally amazing. With my social media followers I run around 12,000 total followers. I can attempt to do this as I am retired, but it pretty much takes up all of my spare time.
Long hours on WordPress and social sites achieve these kind of results, but you will fall behind, as I so often do, with all my followers.
