Odd Behavior: Two “Bloggers” Are Following Me and Don’t Look Real

2016-10-25

In the past few days, I was informed by email that two different “bloggers” were following my “blog.”  They are “doggies that take selfies” or doggieselfies and catslivepics.  Both have “About” pages that are just stubs and both have rather generic looking pictures, the first of dogs and their owners and the second just of cats.  No text entries.  Both blogs have a significant number of pictures, but as I said, those pictures could have come from anywhere.

There are some other “followers” who are somewhat sketchy but this is the first time I have noticed that the blogs of these “followers” are extremely sketchy.  What is this?  Possibly an advertising effort by wordpress itself, I don’t know.  Any ideas?
