Book Blogger Hop


Book Blogger Hop With Jenn @ Crazy For Books
The Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that they may be missing out on!  This weekly book party is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!  So, visit Crazy For Books to grab the logo, then post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs  that are posted in the Linky list.




Here's This Week's Question:

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

I have noticed that I get quite a few new followers when I hold contests, but when some new followers don't win, they unfollow.  I'm cool with this because I don't want people to follow just because I'm having a contest, I want them to follow because they actually like my blog and reviews.  

I admit that I have stopped following blogs because they only post every blue moon or if when they visit me, they only leave a comment just to promote what they have going on at their blog.

Like you, I don't want people to follow me just because I have contests. I like it when they follow my blog because they enjoy reading what I write about!

I hope you have a great weekend! :)

I agree and it's for these same reasons that I've reduced my participation in memes. It is a great way to find new blogs or even introduce mine, but I'd like to have my reviews read as well. :-)

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!

I'm with you as well. That is usually why I offer a follow as an extra entry. That way if they don't want to follow they don't have to do so.

I'm an old follower here to stay. Just stopping by to say Hello!
