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!

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.

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,
Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!
Hi there! its my first blog hop and I'm enjoying all these book lover blogs! I love the look you have here. Very cool...reminds me my blog needs a makeover LOL Thanks for a great post!
Stopping by from the Hop! I don't follow blogs, just bookmark those that interest me (that's a lot!) and I don't follow people just to enter a contest either.
Your blog has a beautiful layout! I'm stopping by from the hop.

Just hopping by. I think being bummed is normal, as long as you don't dwell on it :)
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.
