Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!
How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!
What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to Wordpress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don't have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.
Hello! I just recently started my blog and have been having so much fun playing around with it! I had been becoming more and more obsessed with reading and lurking on Goodreads...then I began commenting, making friends, and writing reviews on Goodreads...then I decided that I MUST create a book review blog! Its like a wonderful sickness!
In my 'spare time' (when I'm not engrossed in an urban fantasy or paranormal romance) I'm actually a Kindergarten teacher in the public school system. I used to keep my book habit a secret...but then I found out that there are many out there with the same obsession!
Q: What would your prefer: reading your favorite book over and over again until you got sick of it OR reading 100s of mediocre books? And why?
Lately it feels like all I've done is read mediocre books. A few good ones have been in the stack, but a lot of duds. At least for paranormal. I've read some great contemporaries (Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and Amy and Roger's Epic Detour), but I've been disappointed with my recent paranormal reads. I haven't even managed to get all the way through Everneath yet; I put it down because I was disenchanted with the genre.
So I would much rather reading my favorite book(s) over and over again. I'd rather be bored than frustrated.
But then again, a book wouldn't be my favorite if it wasn't one I could read again and again. Like Harry Potter. Ever time I read it, I discover something new.
Now for the Follow Fun!
With GFC going the way of the dodo bird for many bloggers, there is no better time to start following blogs via RSS feed. If you use a reader, it would be great if you followed my RSS directly.
We have a new button, so update your blogs if you are used to doing this meme!
Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say "hi" in your comments and that they are now following you.
If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn't have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
Happy Follow Friday! Come back at midnight CST for the Facebook & Twitter hop!!
