Why Do You Unsubscribe from a Blog?

Do you know the orange icon with radar-like waves? Well, that’s a RSS (Really Simple Syndication) subscription icon. When you see that icon, it means there is a feed (A feed is the queue of updates you receive) you can subscribe to.

When you subscribe to a blog, it means you like its content and you want to be notified whenever it has a new blog post.

You can either subscribe to an RSS feed via email or a reader. A reader is a place where you can read the updates of all the blogs you subscribe to. If you subscribe via email, you get updates sent to your email.

When you unsubscribe from a blog, you’ll no longer receive updates from it.

Sometimes, I unsubscribe from some blogs because of these following reasons:

  1. The blog updates too fast and I couldn’t catch up with all the posts.
  2. The posts has dropped in quality.
  3. It suddenly changes to a whole new topic (e.g. From blogging tips to golfing tips).

Why do you unsubscribe from a blog?

So, why do you unsubscribe from a blog? What makes you unsubscribe from a blog? I’m looking forward to hear your views in the comments 🙂 .

Probably if the author starts drifting into topics other than what they said the blog would focus on. I don’t mind some drift, but sometimes they change completely.

Also, if the writing is poorly edited and overly wordy.


Thanks for the comment.

I don’t mind some drifts too, but changing to a completely different topic bugs me.

Poor writing bugs me too, but if the content is really quality, I won’t unsubscribe.

Because the content doesn’t interest me.

Joel Drapper’s last blog post..EasyWP – Install WordPress in Seconds!

Yes, I agree with your reasons. Sometimes when the blog is updated too frequently, my feeds get too clogged up. I think this usually happens for those blogs that have multiple authors.

And also when too many graphics are used. It takes up too much space, even when I have them in labels. Cause the window for the feed is smaller so it gets inconvenient to scroll around.

Lina’s last blog post..What types of maxi dresses do you have?

I unsubscribe to a blog when I find that the last several posts just aren’t interesting to me.

Maxie’s last blog post..Rain Roses

Yeah. I subscribe to a few tech blogs, and I browse through them in list form and choose what to read, too 😛 .

Some blogs may get boring sometimes, and run out of useful information. So, we must ask ourselves, “Will my readers benefit from this?” before posting anything.

Cool post, Gloson 😀

Personally I don’t subscribe to blogs for one main reason… I hate the look of the email you get. I’d much rather think of a blog I like and actually go to that blog to read it’s content 😛

Simon | Teenius’s last blog post..Blog Design Series: Interview With Gaya Kessler

LOL. I subscribe using a reader because

1. I get updates from the blog and I’m unlikely to miss anything (exciting).

2. I prefer to read all of the updates at once rather than spending time loading websites.

3. It is easier to keep track of the blog updates.

But I don’t like subscribing by email because it clogs up my inbox! 😛

if it useless blog or dead blog. I do that. Leave it because that blog not anymore give me anything.
.-= titan´s last blog ..Edisi Siasat: Apa itu MLM Shamelin? =-.
