Book Blogger Hop Nov. 5 - 8, 2010: Followers

Book Blogger Hop This week's Book Blogger Hop qyestion is: 

"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"
I have only recently started blog networking and hopping. It has been a lot of fun and I am enjoying 'getting to know' and follow other bloggers. I also like that I have received new followers. That being said, I believe I would be a little bummed to lose followers. I understand that not every one is going to enjoy every post written on a blog they read but I just think it would be a bit of a bummer to see my followers decrease.

As for leaving a blog I've started following - I have not done that.  I also don't believe that I would do that.  It seems tacky to me.  Of course, if someone were to be obnoxios and rude to me on a personal level, I probably would stop following.  However, if it was just a matter of deciding I didn't love the blog - I'd still stay on as a follower.  It just seems right to me for some reason.

It will be interesting to see how others answer this week.  I hadn't thought about this and wonder if others have and how they feel.  Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Thanks for hopping by my blog :) I think you have a point about "unfollowing." I would hate to think that someone thought me rude for doing that. I do think that some blogs have slowly shut down so that's when I stop following. Hasn't happened much so far, thank goodness! Have a great weekend :D

  2. my readers have gotten rather clogged, so when i find myself just scrolling and scrolling through a blog looking for something that catches my interest, i'll take them off the reader. I don't feel bad, and they shouldn't feed sad.

    the follower thing isn't a big deal to me. don't get me wrong, i love hits and comments, but the specifics isn't a big deal.

  3. Hello,
    I'm making my rounds on the Blog Hop and Follow Friday too say hello and share the love. I really try to be a faithful follower that visits often but I don't always have the time to comment like I should. I hope you have a spectacular weekend and Happy Reading.

    I'm a old follower.

    Saw your comment about Blood on Silk. Trust us--you'll love it! It's a very well written vampire romance.
