"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"I don't actually like the word "followers" as it makes me think of a cult; I prefer "readers."
I'll start with answering part two of the question. I follow a lot of blogs, and enjoy coming home from work and reading what people have to say about the latest books and their own favourites. With such a lot, though, it's inevitable that I will visit some more than others, and every so often I will prune the list so it doesn't get out of hand.
I don't like to see the number of followers go down, but it doesn't bother me, as I know I'm not the only one who thinks this way. It's flattering to see the number go up, but if they don't actually read the blog it's nothing but vanity. If everyone stopped following at once, though, I would wonder what I was doing wrong.
