Blog Hop...(17)

Blog Hop is a meme that is hosted by Crazy For Books each Friday until Monday.

Book Blogger Hop

This is my seventeeth hop and I am still finding great blogs out there and loving the weekly questions!!

Blog on =)

Question: What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?
Answer:  Hmm..I don't know my answer to this LOL! I'm not sure I HAVE lost any followers on my blog but I know if I were to then I would probably be a bit upset by it. But at the end of the day, my blog is about me and what I enjoy reading and reviewing etc. Every one is different and may have started off with the same taste in books as myself but I understand that people change and their tastes change. So basically I would be a little sad but I wouldn't take it personally.

Second part of the question - I think I have stopped following a few blogs but it's not down to them doing anything wrong. It's just that what I may have seen at first sight being a blog I would enjoy reading, later on down the line I might realise that that blog isn't a fit for me due to style, content etc. But it wouldn't be anything personally against the blogger, it's just that we have different tastes. That's all. I wouldn't want to follow anyone that I can't contribute anything to, i.e. comments.

Have a great weekend =)

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

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!

Hi, I'm stopping by from the Hop. I liked your blog name and I agree with you that each time I do the Blog Hop I find a great new blog. It's so hard to keep up! I'm interesting in Supernatural books, so I'm going to peruse your blog a bit.

Have a great weekend.

Hi. Hopping in for a visit again. I used to be pretty concerned about the number of followers I have but I'm learning to take things in stride now. :-)

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.
