Losing Followers!

29 August 2010

I keep losing a follower every day, 1-2 followers. I'm a little sad, but I know it's my fault. I'm losing it!
I have so many reviews I've got written up, and I keep postponing them. I'm sorry, I'll get them up!
Also, it makes me wonder if the people who followed were only interested in the giveaways?

I do giveaways to thank people for following me, and yes, to get followers. But only to get people aware of my blog, I want people to follow only if they like my blog, otherwise, it'll be pointless. You know?

Yes, yes, it's my fault, but I'm back, (I think) for now!

  1. I have been absent here and there to, but honestly only your dedicated followers stick by you, thats why im never in a hurry for giveaways because they are only following you for the giveaway and can unfollow as soon as its over, don't be sad because you have many loyal followers whoever chooses to unfollow its their problem and loss

  2. Awww don't take it too personally. The followers who are faithful fans of your blog will stay just so. I think it's a wee bit of growing pains, you know? I've lost followers during my hiatus, but I was also pleased to find that the ones who stayed were loyal followers. Giveaways are good for followers, but don't necessarily deem the quality of them. Anyhoo, I'm a follower, and so I shall stay! :)

  3. Don't worry yourself, it is the followers that comment that count the most.

    I agree about Giveaways, I always say in mine, this is a thank you to my followers.

    You can't please them all.

  4. Try not to worry about it! There are more readers out there to follow you, just give it time :) sometimes it is hard to keep up with all the reviews, it happens to everyone i think.

  5. Bloggers have lives outside of blogging? ;) Sometimes it is just hard to get to - I am still here.

  6. Kirthi, I understand how you feel but try not to worry about it. The ones that leave will quickly be replaced.

    Reviews do have a tendency to back up, I know mine do. I have learned to start a post when I start a book. Then I go back and take notes right after I finish. That way even if I don't get to the review right away, it is started (which really helps me later) and I can refer to my notes when I go do actually write it.

    Stick with it, there are tons of readers who adore you and your blog. Me included.

  7. unfortunately it does seem like some "followers" are only in it for the giveaways. I've seen my numbers spike up and then dwindle down. I love your reviews, and so do a lot of other folks out there! Keep your chin up and continue to do what you're doing - and pooh pooh to everything else

  8. Aw, don't worry about it! I've had that happen, too. I wonder why those people started following in the first place if they weren't serious about it? Anyways, I'm here to stay!

  9. I've had this happen before numerous times. Don't feel bad. We all get a little busy and backed up, but your content continues to be enjoyable and high quality. :-) I love visiting your site and reading your updates. And like the others, I'm definitely here to stay.

  11. You'll earn them back! Your blog is a great blog! :D

    though, I would prefer it if your music player doesn't autoplay so it won't interrupt the song I'm already playing. Then again, I usually read from google reader :D

I just want to share and hope that people just like who i am and what i do to contribute. don't give up and keep looking forward!

  15. Don't let it bother you too much! Just keep blogging. :) I'm certainly not about to stop following.

  17. I'm with everyone else, don't take it to heart, you've got yourself a fabulous blog and it's supposed to be fun not super stressful, ignore the drop outs and enjoy the constants!

  18. Don't take it to heart! It's ok if you lack in your post here and there, because really people should be here just for the content of you blog - which is amazing! And remember when you were so excited to have just 100 followers? Look how far you and your blog have come now!

    I can't really give you good advice about not enough time to post, because as you move onto high school you will only have less and less time. But if anything, don't procrastinate and you will be able to maybe have enough time to post. As it is, I'm mystified as to how you have the time to post as much as you do now, but I'm sure you'll figure it out! :)
