Hop...Hop...Hop... (9)

Book Blogger Hop

This is my 9th time participating in the Blog Hop... I actually went back and counted. :)

Hi! Welcome to Book Infinity! My name is Ava, and if you're a new follower, leave a comment and tell me! I always try to return the favor to the best of my ability.

The question for the week:

"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"

My answer:

Very interesting question, and I'm not really sure what my opinion is. I've never been concious of actually losing followers, but I assume people have stopped following my blog for one reason or another. If it's because they don't like it, that's not my fault. I'm just being myself- people either like it or they don't!

As for the second question, I've never un-followed a blog through Google Friend Connect (I don't even know if that's possible!). But I guess it's true to say I'll went to someone's blog a few times, commented a few times, and never returned. Not intentionally though, it was never because I didn't like the content, it's just that there's so many blogs out there and I follow so many sometimes it's hard to keep up with commenting on all of them!

I'm interested to hear what other people have to say about this. What's your opinion? Feel free to leave a comment!


Other news, my NaNoWriMo progress: I an currently at 6286 words in my NaNoWriMo novel! I started a day late (I didn't write anything on the 1st), but my personal goal is 2000 words a day. So far I am ahead of myself, which is a positive thing! I will admit content wise my novel is a little bit on the awful side, but I believe the goal is just to get writing, no matter how awful it is, because I know without it I wouldn't be writing anything at all. An awful book is better than procrastinating and never getting around to it at all!

  2. Good job on Nano! I really wanted to do it this year but I am so busy right now and if I overwhelm myself I tend to crash and burn and go into lazy mode. I am starting to wonder if I really like writing since I never seem to get around to it. Or maybe non-fiction article type stuff is more suited for me...anyway, geez I am rambling about my life on your blog! Sorry...hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  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
    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!

  4. I think that's good advice in the blogging world as well as the real world - just be yourself. Some people will like you, some won't. Accept it and move on.

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  7. My goal is to get at least 2k words a day. Right now I'm at I think a little over 7k. Ah! It's starting to get difficult!

  8. My answer is pretty much the same as yours. I don't really notice day to day what my follower numbers are and I just try to have fun blogging and hope people enjoy my blog.
    As for unfollowing - I don't know how...lol

  9. If the content is interesting people will always come back. In the beginning, I did stress out about losing followers. Six months in, If I lose somebody it's really no big deal. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
