As lots of you are aware there are plenty of blog 'hops' to go to, many of which ask their participants to answer a question of one type or another which is where I got my inspiration for this post.
As you can imagine most bloggers answered by saying how they were upset to loose followers and yet understood that life happens and they try not to dwell on it (loosing followers that is). HOWEVER a few blogs answered in greater depth saying they were considering allowing only followers of their blogs to enter their competitions/giveaways.
Umm, I have very mixed thoughts about this. On the one hand why shouldn't followers be rewarded? But then what about the people who are regular visitors/regularly leave comments but never actually sign up as followers? Then, on the other hand, isn't it better to have 'true' followers who visit simply because they want to and not just to enter a competition/giveaway perhaps never to visit again?
I'm very aware that in writing this I may risk offending people - that, believe me, is not my intention - I'm merely interested in your thoughts on followers.
