Book Blogger Hop (11)

Book Blogger Hop is a fun meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy For Books. This is a great way to discover new blogs and connect with more people. If you'd like to participate, visit Crazy For Books where she explains how it works.

This Week's Question/Topic:

"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"

Sheesh! Every time I lose a follower my heart sinks just a little. Then I give myself a little pep talk lol. To be honest, I find that I lose the most followers when I've posted a negative review. Everyone has different tastes and I'm just giving my honest opinion. Isn't that what blogging is about? So I really try not to let it get to me. The amount of followers of a blog isn't everything. I want people to follow my blog because they like my content and they are genuinely interested in it.

Yes I have stopped following a blog.  Firstly I hardly ever have the time to do this because the process annoys me. Second, the reason is usually because they aren't discussing books/content that I am interested in. It's nothing personal. I always scan through my reader and when someone posts something that interests me I comment on it. I try not to follow just to follow because I'd like to be an active follower!


  1. Hi! Old follower here. :) Yup, it's really sad when we lose followers but we have reasons why we unfollow. And besides, it's really not the followers but the readers who value and are interested in your blog. :)

    Have a nice weekend!

  2. I'm always a little bummed when I lose followers but make every effort to
    turn every lost follower into a learning experience so I can improve my

    On the flip side, I only stop following people when they give me a reason to
    such as being totally off message or being too controversial in an negative,
    over-the-top way.

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!
