The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer, at Crazy-For-Books. The hop is a great place for bloggers to connect, get to know each other a little better, and share a love for reading that can't be matched. The Hop runs from Friday to Monday, you can hop now or throughout the weekend. You've got to try it... it's a blast! There is a Mr. Linky provided at Crazy-For-Books, so let's start hopping!
Here is the question for this week:
What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?
I think there are different reasons for losing followers. Usually I think it is just a matter of not having content that appeals to them. Over time they just stop following the blogs that they don't like for whatever reason. Also, I think some people just follow for the duration of a contest or giveaway and then drop you back off, which is a bit disconcerting, but there are ways to get around that, not requiring giveaway entrants to be followers, etc. etc. etc. I expect it to happen sometimes but it pans out in the end. I have stopped following a few blogs on occasion, usually due to the blogger not posting content for a long period of time, or basically not updating their blog.
