Follow Friday & Book Blogger Hop (16)

, by Kt Clapsadl

Book Blogger HopOn fridays I participate in both Follow Friday and the Book Blogger Hop.

Follow Fridays is hosted by Parajunkee's View, and is just Fridays.

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books, and runs Friday to Monday. There are new rules for the hop, so make sure to check out Crazy for Books for the details.

This week's question from Crazy for Books:

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

I think it is just something that happens. However, it is very frustrating to run a giveaway to encourage new followers, and then as soon as the contest is over, the followers drop off. I'm not sure if I've ever stopped following a blog as I started following them for a reason. I have stopped following on twitter however, when someone tweets pointless stuff non-stop. That really annoys me and clogs up my tweet deck, so that always is an "unfollow"

This week's question from Parajunkee:

Who are your favorite authors?

Wow that is a long list, but here goes:

(In Alphabettical order)

Ilona Andrews
Kelley Armstrong
Keri Arthur
Patricia Briggs
Rachel Caine
Karen Chance
Cassandra Clare
Jocelynn Drake
Jennifer Estep
Jeaniene Frost
Yasmine Galenorn
Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Laurell K Hamilton
Charlaine Harris
Kim Harrison
Kalayna Price
Richelle Mead
Karen Marie Moning
Chloe Neill
Rachel Vincent

I know the list is ridiculously long, and there are other authors that I love that I didn't include. However, I would have to say the ones I have listed are my top favorites. Please don't make me narrow it down, it's just too hard. ;)


  1. I'm still following you promise :0)
    As for my fave authors....hmmmm that's a hard one since I'm a book junkie-so much so I went and started a
    but I would have to say Lynsay Sands and Kerrelyn Sparks are the top two.

  2. We have a lot of similar favorite authors!

    Also, I know what you mean about running contests and then afterwards, having the followers drop off. I try to avoid this by not making my giveaways for followers only. That way, people will only follow if they're truly interested in my blog!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Hi, Kt! I love your fav author list. We have some in common. ;)

    Have a nice weekend,

  4. Happy Hop day! I agree about the twitter unfollows! I generally check out tweet feeds before I "follow" anyone. I hope you have a wonderful Friday!

  5. Well I have stopped following blogs if I find there's been no updates for several months. But other than that, I don't think I've stopped following any blogs yet. Though I might unsubscribe from google reader, blogs which I do not read on a daily basis.

  6. Found you through the hop and now following! Sounds like we have a lot in common (although I WISH I was only 20!

  7. New Follower and I totally agree it's really frustrating to run a giveaway and then lose them right after the giveaway is over.

  8. I have a ridiculously long list, too! We probably all do. I keep seeing Patricia Briggs' name popping up - maybe I should give her a try.

    I am running my first giveaway right now, so it will interesting to see if I have a follower drop off after Sunday - it crossed my mind, but I hope people like my blog enough not to.

    Happy Hop,
    Linds, bibliophile brouhaha

  9. Hello,
    I'm making my rounds on the Blog Hop and Follow Friday too say hello and share the love. I really try to be a faithful follower that visits often. I hope you have a spectacular weekend and Happy Reading.

    I'm a old follower.
