My Followers Widget

Okay, so I try not to take these things personally...because I know people use different ways to bookmark their favorite sites...or sometimes the blog is just not their taste or style anymore.

But I was a little sadden when I realized that the number of people following my blog decreased. :( At least on Feedblitz you can turn off the notifications so you don't get them when someone un-subscribes...but I can't do that with the numbers on the Followers widget.

Would you all be offended if I took it off my page?!? It wouldn't take my blog off your list...you just wouldn't see your cute little picture on the side anymore.

  1. I have you in my reader, but was never a "follower"... for what it's worth though, I've stopped following all of the blogs I had been following and moved them all to my reader. They showed up there when I was following them, but I couldn't organize them right with the other ones, so I just stopped following everything.

    Maybe that's what some of the other people did too?

  3. I never really care about being seen as a follower to the author - I just like to follow the blogs that inspire me, like yours!

  4. Aww...don't be sad! Maybe something happened and they deleted it by accident or something. I'll always be a follower and I read your blog daily! Keep it up girl and don't let that get you down!

  5. Sparkle, I was never on the list, but you are in my G Reader. It's one of those things, don't let it get you down. Take comfort knowing you give a buzz to those who do pop by, rather than how many are on the 'list'!

    Keep well

  7. I'm following your blog in my Google Reader :)
    Recently I had to block a few followers on my followers widget, because I absolutely didn't like what I saw on their blogs. They are absolutely not interested in stamping :(
    I didn't want my readers to click on those.

  8. I'm not a follower either but I read ya on google reader. Wish I could comment from there too but perhaps that's a feature that's coming. I agree, it's hard not to take unsubscribing personally but so many are switching to google reader that I'm sure that's all it was. :)

  9. As you can see there are lots of us that you don't know are stopping by. I too always watch from google reader. I don't personally know you, but I first saw your stuff on CTMH BB and started following you since then.

  10. I personally hate that widget...lol!! I read lots of blogs, including yours but they are all in my reader. I skip on blog candies that you can only be entered to if you are a follower.

  11. Don't be sad Sparkle. I admire the bravery of bloggers to even have that widget in the first place! You are in my Google Reader and perhaps that is what people are doing...just switching things around. I can't imagine people NOT wanting to stop by your blog, for a daily dose of Sparkle! Keep smiling, friend.
