REASONS YOU COULD HAVE LOST A FOLLOWER:
- Someone deleted a blog
- Someone left your fandom
- Someone is overwhelmed by their dash
- Someone doesn’t appreciate you [GOODBYE AND GOOD LUCK]
- Someone needs to take some time away and can’t be tempted by your blog
- They don’t like something you love (yes, it’s okay, man! This is why we create the dash we want)
- They feel more comfortable keeping a slow dash and stalking others
- Tumblr is a dick sometimes
Not reasons you lost a follower:
- You suck
Stop worrying. I am not kidding, dudes, stop worrying, stop commenting, know that we all create the dash we want, know that we don’t delete a blog with the hope of having someone feel sad that they are down a follower. Know that it’s better to post what makes YOU happy than what makes others happy.
That insanely popular blog you love too? It loses followers every day.
That underrated oc? It does too. But the people who stay are the ones who matter the most to that one person.
If you value the loss of people who don’t stay over the loyalty of the people who do, you’re missing the point.
I get it. It hurts. But take a step back. Remember why you are here. Think about the people who love you. They are going nowhere.
OMFG THIS. I am actually really bothered when I see people complaining about losing followers. Like dude, it’s just Tumblr. No, it’s not the end of the world. People just move the fuck on. It’s not a goddamn popularity contest. Your blog is YOUR blog and it should be for YOU and no one else. It’s a blog made for sharing what YOU want to share.
And honestly, you look like a winging baby when you point this shit out. I get that you’re upset and if you suffer depression [like plenty of us here on Tumblr do], it can trigger an attack. But seriously, it’s just the internet and it’s just Tumblr.
You’re worth more than that! You’re worth more than a website of numbers. Don’t EVER think you’re less of a person because someone decides to unfollow you. Stop worrying about them and start doing things for yourself.
