Book Blogger Hop (November 5-8, 2010)


I'm sad that October is over, but some of the leaves are still on the trees to make me smile and for me, November is a time to recoup from my crazy Fall schedule.  But, it's Book Blogger Hop time again!  (And that always makes me smile.)

This meme is hosted by Crazy For Books.  Please check out her blog for complete rules.

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

Answer:  I don't have a lot of followers and luckily I haven't lost any yet.  When I do, I won't take it personally.  I started this blog as a fun project so I could express myself about books and other topics in a creative way.  I understand that not every book blog is for everyone.  

Plus, there are just soooo many awesome book blogs out there, it is really hard to keep up them all.  You kind of have to be choosy.  So why not choose to follow blogs that appeal to you...whether the blogger writes well and in a way that makes you want to discover new books, are funny, interesting, or the blogger has the same tastes as you?  

That being said, I have unfollowed blogs.  The reasons were that they were either poorly written, the blog was too hard to read (type too small, different color fonts for each paragraph, couldn't find anything on the site) or the blog simply features books that I am not interested in.  

However, with each Blog Hop, I find more and more blogs to follow!

Good attitude! I don't really notice if people stop following me. Like you I blog for myself. I hope others enjoy it too but I try not to get too wrapped up in the whole thing.

Hey Midnyte, I agree with Karen -- good attitude :-) I have recently gotten back into friday follows after being off them for a while, and i thought it was a good opportunity to stop by and have a quick chat :-) P.s. I didn't realize that my badge was displaying the blog only with picture but with incorrect hyperlink ;-) Feel free not to re-enter it, but if you decide to, you can always drop my chez moi ;-)

Thanks!
Hope to visit here again soon :-)

Hi there, Thank you for coming over to Fangs Wands & Fairy Dust. I just joined your followers. I think I have over 400 blogs I "follow" and I would follow them all religiously if it was humanly possible. Well, maybe not religiously. Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust

HI,

Thanks for stopping by the hop. Just returning the favour!

I totally agree with your view on unfollowing blogs. I feel the same if I were to lost followers I would probably be a bit sad and wonder what I did wrong, but I wouldn't change my blog to suit everyone else!
