Feature and Follow Friday #214

Welcome to the Feature & Follow

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 ayou 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.

How To Become a Featured Blog?

We pick our featured blogs randomly each week from the blogs who participated the week before.

Please be sure to feature your e-mail address clearly on your blog. Either on the main blog, on a Contact page, or on an About Me page. If I can't find your email easily, I will choose a different blog to feature.

Our Feature - Watcha Reading

1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging on October 27, 2013 but I had created it before. But I consider this the official date since it's when my first post was published.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Connecting with authors and talking to other bloggers about bookish stuff. And getting the books earlier to review them.

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I blog about YA, New Adult, and sometimes Adult books. The genres I have reviewed so far have been paranormal and contemporary. But it's mainly YA paranormal books.

4. What are your favorite books?

This is probably the hardest question any reader can get. But I think I'm going to with The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout and The Sweet Trilogy by Wendy Higgins. But I love any book that Jennifer L. Armentrout writes. She writes the best romance books ever!!!

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?

Talking with authors. I love chatting with them and I squeal when they reply back to me. I feel like I'm talking to a celebrity especially Jennifer L. Armentrout. But I have also enjoyed talking to readers that have the same interests in books like me.

Question of the Week: Suggest a question! We need questions of the week for future FFs. Any ideas?

*First thing:  A reminder that if you want to be chosen as the Feature for #FF, please have your email address somewhere on your blog. I know there are other ways to contact people including Twitter and contact forms, but I've set up my #FF system in such a way that I need an email address. So for better or worse, that's the requirement for now.

Help us! We're out of ideas.

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.

Follow on Bloglovin

We have a new button, so update your blogs if you are used to doing this meme!

  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  6. 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"
