Minus 2

And no I do not mean pounds. It appears in my downside I've lost two followers. To that I say...fuck, whatever. I started this blog for me. I didn't search for others to follow and comment, I searched for others to inspire me, and for which I could comment and encourage them. I'll admit seeing the follower number drop it stings a bit, but only for a second, because this was never about anyone else.

I hope today finds you all well, and finds me less stuffing of face.

Happens to me all the time. Don't let it discourage you ;).

Don't sweat it. They come and go, usually for reasons that might have nothing to do with you. Don't let it get you down, chica!

Amber, I lose followers all the time. It always hurts my feelings and makes me think, was it something I said?

Then a few days later I'll have a couple new people. Funny how that works.

I hope you're doing okay. Kind of worried about you. Sounds like you're going through something bad. Keep you head up, and keep going. Things do always have a way of working out.

Take care of yourself too. Rest, eat right, maybe go for a walk. whoever or whatever you believe in. :) I'll pray for you too.

I understand how you feel. I seem to be stuck at about 45, it goes up one then down one. And as much as I like to tell myself, "this blog is for me, and it doesn't matter how many followers I have," I always wonder what I said or did, or didn't do, that made someone actually go to the trouble of "stopping" following me.

Then again, a lot of folks just follow privately (like I follow your blog). I had a weird experience when I first started blogging, in that someone found my blog through me being listed as a follower on another site, and started to send me weird e-mails. So now I generally just follow folks privately. So you no doubt have more followers (like me) out there than you know.

Take care.

I'm not going anywhere and if you do - I will hunt your ass down! SO there!

There are people who think you are great and would never leave, I am one of them!

I may not always have time to comment, but I will never "un"follow. :)

I have lost and gained followers. I try to console myself with the fact that people might leave because I tell the truth. I don't sugar coat things. I don't endorse one-a-week cheat days. I recommend getting a hold on the mental side of things and getting professional help. Some people don't like that.

Try not to take it personally.
