When someone unsubscribes from The Ohana Mama I get an email notifying me. Yes, I choose to torture myself. And yes you’ve been warned..I see you!
Now, many times it’s a person that probably subscribed when I was doing a bunch of giveaways and it was a way to get an extra entry. Now they are sick of me babbling about non giveaway stuff and going on and on about Hawaii, being a Mom and real life stuff.
BUT, then there are the times when I get the email notification and I see the email address and it’s someone that I more “know” and think of as a bloggy friend.
And I won’t lie. It hurts. It stings a bit. (I’m being a tad dramatic here but yes, it makes me go “hmmmm” what the F?)
I do all I can to hold myself back from sending them an email asking them, “why oh why? why did you unsubscribe?!” I don’t want to sound desperate. No, that would not be good. (but still “why oh why?!”)
But alas I need to realize that perhaps, they just aren’t that into me…and so through this conversation on twitter….
(a la Carrie Bradshaw)
When did blogging become the new dating?
Filled with the pitter patter of an excited heart when those subscription numbers go up, the new twitter follower follows (and @s me! bestill my heart) followed by the ultimate…a comment, maybe a few per week. Wow. Pure bloggy friendship bliss.
And then to see that unsub email…it’s like being broken up via a sticky note.
