Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (13).

Book Blogger Hop




I came across the Hop and Follow Friday while I was blog hopping - how appropriate! - and decided to join in on the fun.

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly thing going on over at Crazy-for-Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. If you're a new blogger, like I am, or have been blogging for a while, stop by the sites and get involved!

--------------------------------------------


Weekly question: What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?


I don't think anyone personally likes to lose followers. At first, seeing I've lost followers feels like a slap in the face - like personal rejection.  Then I realize that I'd rather have followers who are genuinely interested in following my blog, and who actively show their interest through comments. Sure, having a greater number of followers would be nice, if they were all interested. I'm not going to say I'd rather have less followers, because who honestly wants that?


And yes, I've previously stopped following blogs - it only happens if the blog becomes inactive or I lose interest in their posts.

  9. 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!

  14. I'm completely new to this book hop business, but it's great. You've worried me that you stop following blogs because you get tired of the posts... (I'm paranoid :-) )

  16. Hey Alissa, just hopping on by! I agree, having followers who are interactive and post comments is really much more rewarding than a bunch who don't. Actually getting to know my followers through their comments has been one of the best parts of the blogging experience for me!

  17. I'm an old follower hopping by to say hello! I haven't stopped following any blogs yet either. I would be afraid I'd miss a great giveaway or an interesting book review since I'm always searching for some new book series to get excited about.
