Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger HopThis week's question for the Book Blogger Hop (hosted by Jen at Crazy For Books) is:

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

I have to admit, I don't pay that much attention to the follower numbers. I will say I'd rather have followers who are actually interested in stopping by to read our posts, than in just having the numbers. I don't see much point in having hundreds of followers who never come back after their initial visit.

I will stop following a blog, if I find that I no longer read it or have any interest it. That doesn't happen all that often, though. I generally don't follow without being pretty sure I'm interested. If I'm following your blog, it's because I want to read what you're writing. I might not read every post I see come up, but believe me, I'm checking you for updates every day, hoping to see something new! And if you haven't posted for a while, well, I'll keep following in the hopes that you haven't quit your blog for something more interesting. If you haven't posted for a couple of years, then I'll give up and stop following. But I will mourn!!!

I'm always a little bummed when I lose followers but make every effort to
turn every lost follower into a learning experience so I can improve my
performance.

On the flip side, I only stop following people when they give me a reason to
such as being totally off message or being too controversial in an negative,
over-the-top way.

Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!
