Welcome to the Book Blogger Hop and Happy Friday! Hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books, the hop is a gathering of over 200 book bloggers so we can find great blogs, great reads, and get to know each other better.
This weeks question is: What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?
It does stink to sign in and find that I've lost a follower. I wonder, do they not like the books I've chosen? Do they not like my writing or opinions? But there could be many reasons for losing a follower. Maybe they're just not into the genres I've chosen. Maybe they've left the blogging world all together. So I try not to worry about it. Now, if there was a mass exodus of followers, then I would worry a little bit about what I've done.
I know that there are people who follow me but don't comment, just as I follow a lot of people but don't comment there. I follow too many too comment personally on every post, but I do take the time each day to sort through my Blogger dashboard and see what everyone is posting on. I may not be able to always read their blog or comment but I am genuinely interested in what other people reading, and that is why I follow them.
The only times I've stopped following a blog are when they've stopped posting for a very long period of time or if I realize that they only post on genres that I don't read. There are so many books out there that I haven't heard of until I've seen them on someone else's blog, so I feel that if I stop following people I might miss out on some good titles. So I may only check out their blog through my Dashboard, but their blog is still influencing my reading.
So I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I have some stuff that's going to take up a lot of time so hopefully I can get some good quality reading time in there.
