Book Blogger Hop #7

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books  and is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! 

This weeks question:
"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"
Now I'm still fairly new to the blogging arena and so far have been lucky not to lose any followers (touch wood!), but then again I don't have a huge number to begin with! Considering the excitement when someone does agree to follow, I think it would be hard to loose anyone. I hope that people are following me because they like my reviews and random content! But at the same time I don't want people to follow just because I follow them. I'm still working on trying to develop a style of my own and if there is anything people would like to see more of, I'll be open to giving anything a try (within reason!).
As for the second part, no, I've never stopped following a blog but I try not to follow too many. I have been known to lurk on blogs I like for a while before following though... I don't currently have Internet access so for the last few weeks when I want to go online I've had to go to my parents and use their Wi-fi as an Internet cafe! This means I haven't been able the time I'd like keeping up to date with all the blogs I follow.
PS - I really appreciate all the comments you guys have been leaving! So sorry I haven't had time to answer them all - I'm hoping that will change on Thursday when the Internet finally comes to my flat!


  1. Oh wow, you're reading Shadow Souls. That kind of broke my brain and not in the good way! Good luck!

  2. I agree- the 'follow me and I'll follow you' reminds me of high school!
    I have been a lurker previously, but now I know how nice it is to receive comments, I like to try to return the favour.

  3. 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

    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!

  6. Hehe. I can relate to reading on mass tranportation. I used to take the bus regularly. Sometimes I could read and other times I'd get too queezy. But my schedule's changed now and I have to drive cuz I work past when the busses run.

    P.S. I found you through the Hop! Have a great weekend!
