Book Blogger Hop 5th-8th November

Book Blogger Hop

This is a weekly PARTY hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books. It's a chance to discover new blogs and to garner new readers for your blog as well.

This Week's Question:
"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"

My response:
To date, there's only been one blog I've stopped following. When I follow blogs it's because we have something in common, a shared interest and similar tastes in books, or it may be that I'm entering a competition.  If that's the case I only follow if I really do want to keep up with what the blog owner is doing or reviewing/reading...otherwise I won't enter.

I won't loose sleep over losing followers...I like to think that those who follow my blog do so because it inspires them to try a book they might not have otherwise read, and because they enjoy reading more on here.  I've yet to branch out to do giveaways and competitions...whilst this is a great way to increase your follower numbers...I'd rather have people follow me because they want to, not because they need least for the moment....besides, I haven't got my head around how to set giveaways up online yet lol.

I follow a lot of blogs because I think I will find some good titles from them, so I tend not to un-follow because I don't want to miss out on good titles. I really wish I had more time so I could comment on more blogs, but that's not happening right now. I think I would only be really worried about losing followers if I lost a lot all at once!

I can't get Linky's to work on my computer so I'm not on the list but my blog hop is here

Thank you for visiting my blog :o)

Just popping in via the hop to say hi! I agree, I'd much rather have people follow me because they want to instead of just wanting a return follow:) I see you're reading Angelfire, I can't wait to read that one, so I'll be looking for your review. We seem to have similar tastes so I'm glad to have found your blog! I'm a new follower and I hope you 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!
