People who unfollow you. Every blog has them. It's an inevtable part of blog life I know. But does it ever bug you? It did me today. My followers go down and my mind begins to wonder. Did I do something wrong? The doubt and worry begins to eat at me. What if? What if? I know that my blog is not right for every one but still. I wish people would send me a message and just let me know why they were following me. Do you ever feel that way when people unfollow you?

EVERY SINGLE TIME! Sigh ... it's part of life though and I am learning to accept it and move on. Sorry it made you sad!

Yes, it has happened to me, too! But, I sometimes stop following other blogs, so I guess it is a "give and take". I'm over it.

I don't think much of it but sometimes I wonder if I might have offended someone

I think we probably all wonder that. I always look at my number of followers to see if it has gone up or down. I haven't had much time to blog lately, so I am surprised mine hasn't gone down.
Your blog is lovely. I am still here, just not as often as of late. School is almost over and summer is just around the corner. WOO HOO!

I don't like it when they unfollow me. I've had unfollow some and only because that person posts 50 times a day or really offensive material but that's rare. Or, they stop writing for months and months.

Don't worry, I won't stop following you.

I guess I've been lucky to not have that happen, but I only have 32 followers. I follow everyone who follows me. I've had people drop me on facebook, though, and it really does hurt my feelings.

It's all just part of the blogging world, try not to dwell on it. People follow and unfollow for various reasons. I myself will follow people for a while and then occasionally unfollow them. Life changes, as do your blogging interests.
Blog what you want to and don't worry about offending people, it's YOUR blog.

All a part of blogging I suppose but I do understand. I was bothered when I noticed someone had stopped following me especially since I'm a newbie. But I have done it to others in the past for various reasons.

I really haven't seen the problem exactly-- a few times I've seen one go away, but get immediately replaced by another so I don't know if the two are related. I like having the followers, but I rather see commenters.

Some of my followers I don't know where they came from or why they follow-- will they disappear eventually if I haven't followed them.

I agree-- I wish people would send a note when they decide to unfollow so we know if something needs to be done better.
