Book Blogger Hop, November 5 – 8, 2010

Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. It is a great way of discovering new blogs and meeting fellow book bloggers, talking about books and authors and sharing our love for literature.

This week’s question is “What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?”


I started book blogging in August and just began getting followers when I had major problems with the Internet connection and my computer, so I was forced to stop blogging for a couple of months. I resumed blogging last week and discovered I had lost a follower and I was a little sad. I have also just started discovering new book blogs, so I do not follow that many blogs to stop following any of them.

Otherwise, I agree with Jennifer, I also believe it is important to follow you actually want ot follow in-dept, not just for the sake of a number, and the same goes for the followers of my blog. Even if I felt sad about losing a follower I cannot and do not expect people to follow me if they do not like my blog. I do not want follower just to make the number. Neither do I try hard to please the followers. I just write what I think, especially since I started blogging to practice writing in English. This way at lest I will know who likes my writing because of my way of thinking not some pretence.

I also have very little time for blogging, so I will try to participate in the challenge, but probably with one of the blogs I already follow. 


  1. It's important to follow a blog if you enjoy it, and that's what I want people o do with mine also! Welcome back to the blogging world, I'm glad you got everything worked out! Here's my Hop: Coffee and a Book Chick -- Blog Hop...

  2. That's sad that you lost Internet connectivity and followers a a result! I do leave a blog if it lies dormant for very long and I happen to notice. Never fear though. There are lots of people on the Web to find you. =)

  3. Hi Pepca, I'm here on the Hop! Personally I'm drawn to blogs that have interesting content and not much bling - busy blogs take forever to load and give me eye strain! I love the beautiful autumn leaves here - do you change your theme based on season or is this what you always have? (Some people change theirs I've noticed).

    I agree with you about sticking with blogs you enjoy for the content and the blogger, not just trying to get numbers like it's a contest. I don't have that feature on my blog so I have no idea who's "following" or how many and I like it that way!

  4. @ Shannon: Thanks for the compliment. Yes, I've just recently changed the theme because of the season and I will prpbably do it again when I feel like it. I'm glad you like it.


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
