Blog Hop on Nov. 5, 2010

Fridays are good days to make new friends. Jenn at Crazy-for-Books and Parajunkee at Parajunkee’s View both are offering opportunities to put your blog out there for others to see and to see other blogs too.

Check this post for the description and rules of Jenn’s blog hop. And check this post for the rules of Parajunkee’s Follow (My Book Blog) Friday.

Jenn also has a question of the week:

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

I am always disappointed when I lose followers. But I can understand. I know that I will go through my Google Reader occasionally and stop following blogs that haven't posted in a substantial amount of time. I will also stop following blogs that consistently review the kinds of books that I don't read or blogs that only review products.

Even with occasional weeding of the list, I still follow 607 blogs and add at least a few new ones every week. I try to comment when someone says something that strikes a chord with me. I can't possibly comment on everyone's blog or I wouldn't have time to read anything else. That would leave my own blog bare and neglected.

What are your thoughts on this topic? Stop at Crazy-for-Books and link up your blog. Also, please take a look around and see if my blog is one that you want to follow.


  1. Hi Kathy. Hope you have a great weekend! Like you, I follow tons of blogs and can't comment on them all. I like visiting as many as I can though. But I try to balance blogging and living too.

  2. Hey! I found you through the hop. I'm a new follower. I hope you can check out my blog sometime!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Hi Kathy! Found you through the hop :) Have a fantastic weekend and it sounds like we have similar interests!

  6. 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!
