U is for Unfollowing

For one of my lasts A-Z posts I wanted to address the issue of unfollowing.

Most of the time, I wouldn't recommend unfollowing at all, but sometimes it's necessary. Just make sure you use caution and judgement before unfollowing anyone.

Here's  the reasons I would unfollow someone's blog:

1. They post more than once a day, almost every day. This spams my google reader, I don't like it. there's nothing you have to say that makes me want to listen to you that much. I hate to put it so bluntly, but that's the truth.

2. No matter how much I've gone to their blog, they never once come to mine. Did you just want me to follow you to make your numbers look good?  That's not why I followed you, so I won't be coming back.

3. Someone is outright hostile on their blogs. I don't need negativity in my life, and I don't want to read about it. Plus, if you're that rude to other people, how do you feel about me?

Thank goodness these types of blogs are the exception and not the rule. I've only had to unfollow half a dozen blogs these last two years. Most bloggers are fantastic. No one deserves to be unfollowed 'just becasue' but sometimes it's needed.

Have you ever unfollowed a blog?
