Are you an Influencer?

Just finished reading a Tweet from Nick Daws,

or if you are on Twitter,

The question was about building followers or rather being an INFLUENCER. First of all, when I am in doubt about a word, I reach for my trusty dictionary; searching on-line also works.

So let us see what they say.
1) A power affecting a person, thing, or course of events, especially one that operates without any direct or apparent effort.
2) The bringing about of an effect, physical or moral, by a gradual process.

Then, I looked at this site:

Here the writer of this article, Haydn Shaughnessy, gives a list with some reasoning behind the choice.

I selected these sites because they relate to what I am trying to do when Blogging, Tweeting or writing in general. Develop a group of followers so that we can take over the world? No, not really, but it would be nice to know that when I write about something, one or two people might find it interesting. Sort of like when my boss lady takes me shopping with her; I believe she really enjoys what influence I have on her purchasing choices and that I am not just some mobile cheque book!
