Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

It lasts Friday-Monday every week. Click HERE to join in on the Hop.



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

Answer: My feelings aren't hurt when I lose a follower, I can't be perfect. I just assume they deleted their blog or they don't like my review style, or I've done something bad. I mean there could be a hundred reasons. I try to be the best blogger I can be, just like in the real world, not everyone will always like you, such is life. I have stopped following people on Twitter, but not on Blogger, that I can recall. I don't really notice my followers so much anymore I've been blogging for a good bit, I mean its lovely to see new followers, but like a lot people have been saying, just because they follow doesn't mean they "follow". I just love to blog, but I can totally get why someone would get a sad feeling if they lost a follower.

Hi Caitlin! Hopping over from the blog hop. You've got a nice number of followers, so I can imagine you don't mind one more or less.

I always like MORE! :-)

I don't like losing followers, not because I want to be popular or have tons of people following me, but because it makes me fret for a minute or two why they left. But I don't get upset or dwell on it too long. I mean, my blog is my little corner of the world to do and say what I want and I'm absolutely thrilled that anyone wants to read what I have to say and come back again.

Like you I have unfollowed people on Twitter, but only because I'm not on there every day, so if I'm following too many people, I never get to see what my friendliest peeps have to say, you know?

It totally makes my day when someone new follows my blog. I love meeting new people online.

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
performance.

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!
