58 thoughts on “Reasons Why I’ll Follow and Unfollow Your Blog

    1. Hi Cheila!
      I’m saddened to know that you weren’t notified of all of my responses? I commented back (some were really quite lengthy) to all of your comments. I hope you can find all of my responses somehow! :-/
      Glad you thought this post was lovely!! ❤

    1. Yeah, she wrote it in a post like this one, actually and I commented on it and said “I think it’s really thoughtful when people leave long comments” and she said “if they feel so strongly about something they can write their own post about it” ??? Why would someone write a post on their own blog responding to a post you wrote on yours? She made me mad lol.

      Thank you!! ❤

  1. I agree with everything you wrote here. I love finding new blogs to follow, and if I see someone has followed me, I’ll check out their blog, too. But I won’t follow back unless it’s content I would actually read. For example, I’ve noticed a few accounts that follow me don’t even post anything in English lol.

    I’ll also unfollow blogs if I notice they become inactive, and if I would’ve been following someone who mentioned they didn’t like long comments like that, I would’ve unfollowed, too. That is rude!

    1. Yeah, I mean some of those non-english ones have translate buttons on their page but I won’t follow because the reader doesn’t translate it lol.

      I thought it was rude, too! I was already on the edge of unfollowing her because she had also said she hates to read. How do you have a blog and hate to read?

      1. Ohh do they? I read off the app so I don’t really notice that. I don’t really trust translations all that well because it doesn’t make sense in English that well lol.

        And what? Yeah that makes no sense at all lol. You can’t enjoy writing and not reading 🙈

  2. Ohhh, I didn’t know there’s some juicy stuff going on there with the long comment thing. I appreciate long comments SO much! For me, it just means that they’ve read my post and really want to share their thoughts about it. They took time to comment long enough so why would you feel obliged to answer? You should be appreciative! Not everyone comments like that! Hahaha omg why am I affected?! 😂

    1. LOL, Amielle! I appreciate them, too! They make me smile every time! Boyfriend always is like “what is wrong with you?” and I’m like “it’s just these people on WP are sooo sweet” lol. Right!! I’m happy you feel the same way as me lol ❤ ❤

  3. Wow! I don’t see how someone could not like long comments? I would definitely appreciate someone who took the time to write so much about my blog/posts! Whether its constructive criticism or appreciation, they still put in the effort. I agree with all your points here as well!

  4. Love it! I’m the same way, I don’t like to clutter my reader with posts I’m not interested in. And besides, people’s lives are far more interesting than mine hahahaha
    okay anyway, I agree with you on the unfollow too. I unfollow inactive blogs and even then I think I’m pretty easy-going in regards to those lol. I haven’t checked recently.. I also get many people who just go on a liking spree on my blog, like yay for likes but then again they’re not really engaging.. and I like to be as genuine as possible, if I’m not going to read your post I won’t even like it.
    and I’m NOTORIOUS when it comes to LOOOOONG comments.. seriously.. take this one for example lol. I just have a lot to say sometimes haha 😉
    and good for you, cutting out that negativity lol 🙂

    1. Yeah, I just can’t follow someone if I don’t like their writing! I love reading about other people’s lives!
      I haven’t done an inactive blog unfollow in awhile but I was gonna do one soon lol. Yeah I hate the liking sprees and most of the time if I get comments that tell me to check out their page I mark it as spam or delete it….lol. I don’t want a like if you didn’t actually read it, there’s no point! And I love long comments, thanks for leaving me one!! ❤ ❤

      1. Omg I remember someone in particular who used to use generic comments on my blog along with their blog URL. One time she commented something about “great photos” and I commented back that I didn’t have any photos on my post, and she goes “oh, really, I didn’t mean to write that”, well then, what did you mean to write if you clearly haven’t read it?! LMAO
        Yeah exactly, like I know some people want as many follows and likes as they can get, but then it makes me feel like the engagement isn’t real. There’s no substance lol.
        Yeah no problem! 😉 Don’t take it personally if sometimes I don’t leave a comment or they’re short. At times I have too many blogs to read that I want to catch up as much as I can lol

      2. The blog URL is ok to me because sometimes their picture doesn’t lead to their blog but if the generic comments come with it then that’s annoying! LOL, I literally laughed out loud a little. I’m glad you commented back at her!! I would’ve prob spammed it! 😛

        I think I care more about the engagement and my enjoyment more than the amount of followers I have! 😛 But I know there are a lot of bloggers who only care about the followers and you can always tell who those people are, too!

        Don’t worry about it!! I don’t expect your to read or comment on all of my posts at all. 😛 I know how you feel about being behind on blogs!! ❤

      3. That’s true! I never thought of that, because there are a few blogs that follow me and I’ve clicked their avatar and it took me to their deactivated site. Lol, I don’t think I have ever spammed anyone but I have deleted or denied their comments lol.
        Yeah, I’ve never cared much about my #s, I’ve been blogging for two years and there are a few people who have been blogging for less than a year and have twice as many followers than I do. Of course I don’t use social media to my advantage and haven’t up until last summer I think? LOL
        Okay, good, I don’t expect everyone to read ALL my posts either 🙂 I know different people follow me for different kinds of posts 🙂

  5. Definitely agree with these, especially “People who are unappreciative of their followers. (For example: I once unfollowed a blogger because she said she doesn’t like when people leave her long comments because she feels obliged to comment back. Rude.)” – I saw that too and was extremely shocked!! I love long comments so much, I’m so appreciative of the fact people have actually taken the time out to read my posts and then let me know what they thought about it. Also agree with “It may be petty…but if I disagree with something you say, like very strongly disagree, I’ll unfollow because I have learned it’s better to get rid of what I disagree with rather than to continue to follow and get myself wound up.” – I’ve had to unfollow a couple of people before who have basically trash talked in such a rude way about something I really love, I just couldn’t see their blog the same after that! xx

    1. Yes I def unfollowed her right after I left her a comment which she also responded rather rudely to. 😛 Thank you! I love long comments too. 🙂 Yeah seriously. I just can’t get myself to see them the way I did before they offended me somehow! So happy you agree. ❤

  6. Love the blog and that’s one of my pet peeves when other bloggers aren’t appreciative of their followers. So wicked wrong! I am ALWAYS thanking my followers. I might not do it that day but I always do. Also it’s okay to disagree but if you get stuck on stupid with your shit, BYE FELICIA ! As for the blogger who you unfollowed- that’s what I’m talking about stuck on stupid . You don’t like long comments, say it with me, gf, BYE FELICIA !

  7. Really enjoyed reading this so while you are unfollowing people on Wp I am going to follow you for speaking the truth. I also wrote a post just now about unfollowing and I will send it to everyone who made a big deal when I unfollowed them, along with yours 😂
