Book Blogger Hop 5th-8th November
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?"
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 to...at least for the moment....besides, I haven't got my head around how to set giveaways up online yet lol.
