I thought I could give some insight as to why I follow the way I do.
Don't Bring Illamas to the Dramas – Bringing Illamas means more drama, and this is probably directed to Twizards (because this is who I see the most drama from) who bedazzle like nobody's business over free codes from official fansites. I get it. Not all of us have a job and can get adorable polar bears and penguins. That doesn't mean I want to see fights popping up all over my timeline.
Be Interesting/Funny – I might follow back most book bloggers (note I said most, because I don't catch everyone), but they're interesting, funny, or the combination of both. Bonus points if you're mildly sarcastic, snarky, and sometimes exaggerates for the purposes of being funny.
We're Like Real Life Friends – Although Roberta from OffbeatYA and I live across the world from each other (oh, and there's a whopping age gap, too), we nag each other like I nag Lupe (and vice versa). Of course, in the Lupe situation, she knows more about Sophia than anyone else (like my real name).
Don't worry, Ella is after Lupe. Then everyone else. :D
Tweet Moderately – No one cares if you're in the bathroom. Nor do they care about one letter popping up after the other just so you can elongate CRAPTASTIC in whatever many tweets. The end.
Inspirational/Relatable – Perhaps if you're quotastic... (I adore quotes, okay? They inspire me and I favorite them far too much.)
Oooo, Giveaways. Gimme gimme gimme! – Nope. Just nope. I'm okay with giveaway entries through Twitter, but I like my timeline remotely clean. And mildly entertaining with a dash of seriousness.
I Have (or Have Plans to) Read Your Book and I Adored It (or Think I Will When I Read It) – Only reserved for the special peoples (write a love triangle in which I love both and you just might find me advocating your book to the school librarian). I have nothing against authors, of course.
Don't Follow and Unfollow Repeatedly – Here's what really annoys me: people who follow and unfollow me repeatedly. It just means they want my attention, and I'm probably not going to give them my attention. (It goes to my notifications, okay?)
It doesn't matter if they're a book blogger – I follow most book bloggers back, but there are some I've come across who unfollow as soon as I follow them back. I'm not going to run in a vicious cycle with them if they're just going to follow to get my attention, have me follow, and then unfollow. (I pay attention.)
Besides, why are you even following me if you're just going to unfollow shortly after I follow you back? I'm confused there. Someone tell me why. Hands down, if you're going to do that, then don't follow me. Simple and easy.
