How To Get People To NOT Follow Your Blog!! (Super-Duper Helpful Tips You NEED)

Hi! It’s that time of the week again: helpful blogging tips from Abby! And this week, we’re going to talk about how to get people to unfollow or completely ignore your blog!

It’s useful to have a very low amount of followers – all the pros know this – because you need room for the other people who want to follow! Otherwise, you’re just going to have a HUGE number. And we can’t let that happen, now can we? 😉 😉 😉

be unoriginal

Post just like everybody else. Readers hate it when you are exactly the same as any other blogger! Eventually, they’ll get disinterested and unfollow. It’s really easy and sure to cut your numbers!


 never change

Be the same. Never try to change. Never try anything new. Keep the same design, style, anything.

And never, NEVER try anything out of your comfort zone. You’ll never realize what works and what doesn’t, so you’ll stay at your same level.


be disrespectful

Here’s a quick story! Once upon a time, I was subscribed to this blog. The blogger put up a post arguing for an opinion I did not agree with. I don’t get offended often and took it with good grace. That is, until she mentioned a particular person who didn’t agree with her and said some hateful words about them.

She lost a follower that day. The end.


talk about yourself… all the time.

Never stop talking about yourself. Even if the post isn’t about you, find a way to weave yourself in there and talk about what you’re eating for lunch.

New readers aren’t here for you. They’re here for what you can give them. To stop them from subscribing in the first place, don’t give them anything beneficial or relatable to their lives. Just bombard them with repetitive facts about yourself. It’s bound to work!!


have bad graphics

People like pretty things! They enjoy pictures that please their eyeballs! They adore nice, interesting layouts.

People don’t like bright cyan and neon pink all over their computer screen. Their eyeballs hurt from staring at pixelated free stock images. And don’t even mention Comic Sans font…. *shutters*


don’t be consistent

How to not get any followers at all in two easy steps!

  1. Never ever post.
  2. Repeat.

count on stats and only stats

If you want to serve your followers less and less, think like this: stats don’t represent real life people. They represent COLD HARD CASH. So treat them like it! Mention sponsors in every post, nonstop. Tell everyone in a ten mile radius to follow you and get upset when people don’t follow after they’ve commented like three times on your blog.


keep to yourself

NEVER EVER EVER COME OUT OF YOUR CORNER OF THE INTERNET. Never comment or visit other blogs. I know it might be tempting to take a peek at what other people have to say and maybe even learn from them, but that’ll only grow your audience. Better not to risk it.

Don’t you just hate it when people follow your blog, especially after all the hard work to make them go away. I totally without a doubt wish they would all unsubscribe. *shakes head sadly*

  4. Make your blog look like everyone else’s blog.
    Review a book that literally a hundred of your blog friends have just reviewed.
    Wiggle the camera! Wildly!
    use As muchh bAd grammer an speling az u cann
    PUT EVERYTHING IN ALL CAPS AND PUT A MILLION EXCLAMATION POINTS AFTER IT!!!!!1!!!!
    Ramble on and on and on about everything and anything and don’t stop rambling until everyone leaves and you’re just sitting alone in the theater talking to yourself like an idiot and a moron without friends or life or home who has no future and will probably end up in an asylum or a busted mobile home or in a Mcdonald’s drive thru.

  6. YES, the Lego Movie GIF!!! This was great, Abby! Makes me want to go watch some Blimey Cow videos, and savor some more good old fashioned sarcasm. 😀 Your point on never changing is a good one. I actually really enjoy your random posts; you have a talent for humor and a real delight/interest in your topics that always makes me want to read whatever you post. 🙂

    1. BLIMEYCOW! Jordan is my teacher xD

      Actually coughs it’s funny you mentioned that, because I’m going to be making a move to more serious and professional posts soon. Like sure they’ll have gifs and sarcasm but less random topics like this. I wanted to be more focused on the advice and encouragement i’m giving than the humor, you know?

  7. I just peaked 100 followers today, and promptly had an anxiety attack as to how I’m supposed to get rid of them all. This post brings such relief to my troubled mind. Thank you for teaching me how to ditch all 100 of them in one fell swoop—I feel like a new woman.
