I am not sure if you are aware, but if you follow me that entitles you to be an exclusive. Which means that there are special tags that you will receive that the Always list doesn't. Only following does not put you on my always list. Therefor, if you wish to be on there AND receive exclusives please send me a message or comment here with the name you would prefer on the tags so I can add you to the always list.
ALSO, if you are a follower only, please send me an email or comment here with the name you would prefer me to use on the tags. Otherwise, I will just use the name that it shows you are following me by.
Thank you everyone
