I always used to joke about Facebook that people would not be so quick to delete people if Facebook send a notice to the person saying something like “john smith is no longer your friend”.
Well, it seems a blogger that I actually was holding in my mind as a mentor unfollowed my blog and it has me very upset.
In my mind I know I should just shake it off and move along. I mean really, I have never even met this person! Yet for some reason it’s late at night and I am sitting here with my stomach in knots losing sleep over it.
Yes, I admit, part of it may be guilt that she deleted me over a hasty comment I made. I spoke my mind when I should have kept my mouth shut, but I did apologize for it.
I guess the reason I am so sad about it is that I learned so much from her blog. It was her encouragement that made me see my blog as more than just an online diary. I am very sad to have lost her (and I still hope one day she will come back, but I doubt it).
It also bothers me becwuse one of the reasons I blog is because it is fun for me, my one hobby. Now because of this I feel upset and I don’t want to blog anymore. It sounds silly to me even as I write it, but the thick skin I have developed over the years does not cover social media yet. LOL
So since I am relatively new to the blogging world I thought I’d ask. Has this ever happened to you? Does it bother you when you lose followers? Have you ever gotten into a fight or misunderstanding with another blogger?
