Followers

Am I the only person who has an issue with the word “followers?” Am I over thinking the term? When I hear or see the word I automatically think of religions, and the occult.

I am far from someone that should be worshipped or mindlessly followed, so why should those who choose to read my writing be called followers? Y’all are awesome and as humans we have a tendency to label things. Everything has to have a name, and if it doesn’t we come up with one.

The question is who chooses the term?  Who decided that we should be followers? I understand it is a general term worldwide, but why not come up with a different, better term to use? I know celebrities come up with their own cute names for their fans, so what is the difference?

Any ideas or suggestions? Personally, because I am odd mainly, I love the idea of calling my followers Squishies. I take the term from Finding Nemo, when Dory named a jellyfish. Its better than being called Georges, from Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck (I think…memory is fried this early in the morning. 230 am).
