Book Blogger Hop: My First Blog Hop!

Okay, so I've seen this for a while and since I've been trying new memes this week, I decided I'd try this one. It's hosted by Crazy For Books. I was gonna do the Follow Me Friday thing too, but I think I'll stick with the Blog Hop for this week.
So, each week we get a question, and this week its "What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"
Okay, well since I'm new to blogging, and I currently have only 5 followers, I'd feel sorry if one of them stopped following. That being said, if that follower felt they weren't interested in my blog anymore, I wouldn't blame them for stopping. And in regards to having stopped following other blogs myself, I have in fact stopped following several blogs. I've been on Blogger for a long time, and only started a blog myself recently, but I've had bloggers I'd follow for a few months, and had them totally stop posting, or post only once every couple months, and I'd unsubscribe to them immediately. I don't think it's fair to clutter up my blogger with blogs that aren't really involved anymore.

Hi, how nice, a new blog! I'[m sure you'll have a lot of followers soon, it goes quite fast, once people know your blog exists. So, participating in the Blog Hop is a good way to let people know about your blog.

Have a great weekend!

Welcome to the hop! I'm just stopping by to say hi, and I looked at your shelf and it seems like are looking forward to reading a lot of the same books so I'm glad to have found your blog this week. The Rachel Vincent Shifters series is one of my favorites, I just finished Alpha last month and loved it. I'm a new follower here and I look forward to more of your reviews!

Like Judith says, the Hop is a great way to let people know your blog is out there - so Hi! I'm here on the Hop :D

I'm sure at the end of the day what matters the most is the conversations you can have with fellow bloggers - at least, I'd like to think so, but I'm glad I don't use that Google follower thing or I'd watch that number compulsively! Way too much stress and pressure to put on yourself ;) I like not knowing. Otherwise, I'd agonise over it.

Hopping by to visit and follow! Welcome to the hop--I'm sure you'll find plenty of people who are excited to stop by and see your blog. :-) I'm off to look at your Zombies vs. Unicrons review!

Hey, thanks for the comment on my blog. It's so nice to have you. I'm pretty new to blogging also. I've only been around for close to a month, but it does seem to go pretty fast. From what I've discovered, the blogging world is fairly simple. We all try to help each other out, but occasionally, you run into bloggers who want followers but then they don't follow in return. No one could follow and comment on every blog you follow every single day, but at least once a week try to stop by. I've commented and followed some that never respond or visit. As time goes on, if you watch,they're not commenting or following on anybody's site. This will surely kill a blog. But I'm not sure they even know it. Hope they figure it out:)

Welcome to the Hop and to the wonderful world of book blogging! 365 books in 365 days is quite the goal. I'm trying to read 200 books this year and I still have 40 to go. I don't know if I'm going to make it!

Anyway, I'm glad to have found you. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi. I am a new follower so I can watch to see if you really read a book a day. Wow. I can only manage about a book a week.

It is comments that I like so I want followers who actually want to read my blog and make comments. Doing things like this Blogger Hop seems to add to the Follower column but doesn't always make me feel like I have loyal followers, if you know what I mean. If you take a look at my blog you'll find my answer underneath the mountain pictures.

I am happy to find this new blog and I am now a follower. Just blog hopping by. Don't worry, even if you don't have the numbers, I find that people stop by for a visit anyway without being an official follower.

Thanks for stopping by the Brazen Broads Book Bash and following! We will do the same!

Nice to meet another from the Hop! We're not brand new, but we're new to Blogger, so we're always happy to have people stop by.

Have a great one!

Welcome to the hop and to the wonderful company of other book bloggers! I think that the hops are a great way to find new blog that have the same interests as yours, and it's always nice when you see people stopping by to visit and leave a comment or two. The followers box is NOT the be all and end all of what we blog for. I think most of us blog for the simply joy of sharing our own love of reading with others!
