It's that time of the week!!

Book Blogger HopEvery week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books (http://www.crazy-for-books.com/) hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. Make sure you leave a comment on the blogs you find it helps drive up traffic for my fellow book bloggers. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog? I know some of my followers are just spammers, but they are few. But if I lose followers, I'm not going to stress it. There are so many bigger things going on in the world, I can't let that get me upset. True followers will always be there, they might not always comment but I know they are still around. I have stopped following some blogs, but only when the person doesn't post regularly. If a person has gone a month or more without posting, you've lost me.

Here are some blogs I came across:

Notes: Take a look at the top of my header. There are two standalone pages for my giveaway, and next month's question for What's Up Tweeps?! A review of A Friend of the Family and blog Q&A with author Lauren Grodstein will be up shortly after midnight. Happy reading everyone!!!

  1. Hopping through - I'm the same with stopping followers. I'll only drop if they stop updating. I'm a new follower, btw.

  2. Hi, I'm hopping through from the hop. I think that Jennifer has really asked us to think this week. I have stopped following a blogger if I am never interested in what they are saying. Happy Hopping!

  3. I agree Teresa. It's two-fold if you don't say have anything to say, it's a waste.

  4. I am hopping by -- I agree, sometimes if a person has been gone a while, it's tough to reconcile keeping them in the blog list. Unless of course, they share that they may be unable to post for a while or something like that? I've found I really enjoy seeing what everyone is up to, but I know life does get in the way! Here's my Hop: Coffee and a Book Chick -- Blog Hop...

  5. Happy HOP! Sometimes its hard not to take it personally but I like what you said about there being bigger things happening in the world so you don't stress it. It's always great to have a little perspective.

  7. 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!

  10. Danielle: Judging from the title of your blog, you're probably right. I'm not a big romance reader, but I will be checking out your blog.
