Time for the Book Blogger Hop! A weekly event hosted by Crazy for Books!

This weeks question is...

"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"

I think it always sucks to lose followers, it kinda makes you feel like you're doing something wrong or you're boring. I know that's probably not true, but I seem to always come up with the worst reasons as to why someone unfollows me. But at the same time, maybe the person shut down their blog or maybe they needed to clear up room for blogs they would rather follow other than mine, and that I can totally understand.

And yes, I have stopped following blogs. Sometimes I lose interest or they haven't updated in the last six months. Or like for this account I've hit the max amount of blogs I can follow and I let go of the ones that aren't really related to book blogging to follow blogs that are.


  1. Nice answer.

  2. Just stopping by to share some Friday blog love! Have a great weekend!

  3. There's a maximum number of blogs you can follow? Wow that's not on!

    Sorry. Hi! I'm here on the Hop :) I have WordPress so I don't use the Google friend thing - sounds too complicated and too much like a contest half the time! Plus I'd watch the number too much and that seems like pointless stress to me (I wouldn't be able to be unflustered like you - I'd agonise I'm sure!)

    Anyway, nice to find your blog through the Hop, and I hope you have a great weekend :)

  4. 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.

  5. thank you for stopping by my site--I appreciated your input :)

    And ahhh, losing followers DOES suck. I've sometimes lost as much as 4 followers in a day and while that is a bummer, I don't let it get to me. Like you said, they could either be shutting down their blogs or maybe they just want to declutter their dashboard. No problem with that--besides, I would rather have a follower who genuinely likes my site than have someone that follows me just for contests or something of that sort.
