Book Blogger Hop!

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.

  3. Hi there!
    Love your blog, and I'm now your new follower...
    Happy blog hop Friday my friend

  4. My attitude on potentially losing followers is fairly c'est la vie - it's just the way it goes, and tastes do change... I'm new, though, so it hasn't happened just yet. Sure it will eventually!

    Happy Hop,
    Linds, bibliophile brouhaha

  5. Your response to this week's Book Blogger Hop question is thoughtful and well expressed. I feel the same way about the whole followers thing. Have a terrific weekend!

  6. Here here, Shan :) I only stop following when someone hasn't posted for a month or more, and usually I don't follow blogs that don't interest me anyway. Have a great weekend & enjoy the hop :D

  7. Great to hear your thoughts - I love following your blog. :)
