Is a lost follower bad?

I've lost a follower. I don't know how that happened. I am always very happy to see that someone is following me, but I've had seven for a while now. Today when I rolled down on the screen, I only have six. What happened?

Am I not posting enough? Do you think I finally irritated someone, because really how could I not ever have a troll but irritate someone enough to unfollow me? The first thing I thought of was that I must have made a bad comment on someone's site who I follow, but really that's not possible.

I am very conscientious about my postings. I try to never post, or respond to a post when I am angry. I try to always put myself in that person's shoes, and think about how I would feel if someone said what I was thinking to me. Are you confused yet?? I am.

Anyway, I know I really probably shouldn't worry about a lost follower but it makes me a little sad. :(


  1. I have learned to totally ignore the stats.

    Sometimes they don't even mean anything. When I first started, I wasn't sure how best to track blogs, and I often "followed" and "subscribed," meaning I was getting double copies of everything.

    So when I streamlined, I undoubtedly ruined several blogger's days.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

  2. Pfffft! You know you have what's important to you.

  3. I understand you. Losing even one of our followers really is very sad. But, don't worry too much about it. We never know what happened. You lose some, but I know you'll gain more.:-)

  4. @The Mother - thank you for helping me see the light. I mean really, why let it bother me???

    @Elle - I know...

    @Edie - Thanks, and thanks for visiting my site!! :)

  5. I don't think I was "following" you before... though you are in my reader. Now, I am. So guess what? You now have seven. :-)
