In the mainstream blogging world people get upset if they lose one or two followers and try to figure out why and are consumed by it. I have lost and gained hundreds of readers while blogging on Tumblr and sometimes I find out why I was unfollowed but most of the time I have no idea why (and it’s better that way - I don’t need to know the details).
I’ve found out that people unfollow you for so many reasons i.e. you become annoying to readers, you post too many bracelets, you post too many times a day, you post something they don’t agree with, you become boring, you post roundups etc… I know this because if something rubs me the wrong way (big time) about someone’s post I’ll just stop blogging DIYs from their site and unfollow them without a word. Today one blogger posted a gorgeous handpiece and called it a “slave bracelet” and another posted examples of real fur - two of my “deal breakers”.
Some of you may unfollow me for this post. I don’t take these things personally anymore and now understand that you never know what may piss someone off and if you lose followers don’t dwell on it or keep asking why. Because you will probably never know why and it’s all for the best.
EDIT: The site that was calling panjas/handpieces “slave bracelets” changed the name.
