Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop are weekly events hosted by Parajunkee and Crazy For Books respectively. I absolutely love, love, love both of these weekly events!! It is a great way to promote your blog, as well as find some great blogs to follow! Hurry back to their sites, follow them, and let the hopping and following begin!
This week's question comes from Vicki who blogs at The Wolfs Den.
"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"
My Answer: Okay, personally, I follow like ten thousand blogs. I don't get a chance to read every single post by every single blogger, but I do spend time scrolling through and seeing if there is a post that I really really really want to read. The only reason I would ever stop following a blog is if the blogger stopped blogging, or the content started to bore me. I think when I pick which blogs I want to follow, I do it with the intent that it is something I do like, and will want to continue reading. I'm not going to just follow blogs just to follow them.
As far as losing followers, I think that on some level, all of us bloggers feel a little sting when we notice that number drop. I think that we all pour our hearts into these blogs, and then to see someone stop following you can be somewhat devastating. I think that if my blog is not living up to someones expectations, I would rather them e-mail me and let me know that my content is lacking, than just drop me.
How do you feel about this? Do you stop following blogs?
Happy Reading! Happy Hopping! Happy Friday!!
