Book Blogger Hop November 5th Edition

Welcome to Teresa's Reading Corner.  Here we are at the end of another week and its time for the Book Blogger Hop.

If you are new to the hop, head on over to Crazy for Books and Jennifer will explain how this works.

This week question is one that I think every single one of us thinks about at one time or another. 

"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"
I have stopped following a blog in the past.  I generally try to follow those blogs that I'm genuinely interested in.  If a blogger doesn't necessarily read the same type of books that I do, but I enjoy their reviews I will follow them to see if I might want to try a new genre or author.  Sometimes it just doesn't work out and I'll stop following them.

I have gone through streaks where it seems like all I do is lose followers.  I try to remember that it doesn't really matter, but I still wonder why.  Did I do something wrong? 

I have come to realize that commenting means more than just following.  I understand that sometimes you just can't comment.  There are days when I read right in my reader and never hop over to a blog because my time just won't allow it.  When I do have the time to comment, I really make an effort to do so.  I've also been making an effort here at Teresa's Reading Corner to spark some conversation. 

As part of the Challenge for this weeks hop, I am going to make an effort to be a more active member of the blogging community and I hope you will do the same.

I'm really looking forward to getting to know more of you!

Thanks for reading!

I agree that sometimes it just doesn't work, and then I will stop following. Commenting means more, anyway! I'm already following. Hope you have a good weekend.

Teresa, I agree it is disheartening to lose followers, even when you tell yourself not to take it personally. I try not to become a follower of a blog I know I'm not really that interested in--because I hate to stop following. I agree, too, that comments are how we connect with readers--but sometimes there aren't enough hours in the day, so I just read and lurk!

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 agree with you. I follow lots of blogs and I do so because they are ones that I look forward to recommend to me the books that I want to read. I stop following blogs if they stop blogging or if their style changes drastically. When I lose followers I wish I knew the reasons why!
