Feature and Follow Friday #241

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 - Snowbird

We're doing something a little different today. Rachel and I are featuring our pets! I'm interviewing my beloved dog Snowbird.


1. Tell us about yourself, Snowbird.


I'm a Bassador: a basset hound and labrador mix. I'm eight years old. I've lived with my mama and daddy for almost seven years. I love my mama more than anything else in the world. Except for food, but that's obvious.

2. Do you have a blog?

No. I wanted to create a blog reviewing dog food, but my mom said that my opinion was biased. I disagree. I gave every brand I tried 5 out of 5 stars, because they were all equally wonderful. There was no bias.

I also wanted to start a blog about tennis, because I love tennis balls. But I got bored with that idea after 5 bounces. Just like I do with tennis balls. My mom says that if I was a full Labrador I would want to chase balls all day. I don't mind helping mom out and catching a few balls, but personally I think she's lazy. She threw the ball - she should go get it herself.

3. What are your favorite books?


I loved Bunnicula, because a dog is the main character and the featured bunny looked very tasty...I mean cute. I love reading the Vacuum Manual, because my greatest dream is to disassemble the Vehicle of Evil. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was great. Not only does it feature squirrels, but it's about chocolate! I love chocolate. Mama won't let me have any, because she says it's bad for me, but I really think it's because she wants to eat it.

I hated Where the Red Fern Grows because not only do the dogs die at the end, but they don't even get to eat the raccoons they worked so hard to hunt. At first I loved Marley and Me because that dog made me look really well-behaved, but in the end I thought it was too sad.

4. Tell us about a typical day in the life of Snowbird.


Every day is the best day in the world. I wake up in my comfy mattress on the floor next to my mom. Then we get up and I wake for eons until mama gets my breakfast. That's the best part of the day. I eat as fast as I possibly can, because you never know if the food might disappear. Then I watch mama eat her breakfast and make sure the floor stays clean.

After breakfast, mom and I head outside to go to the bathroom and have a few sniffs. That doesn't take too long. In the summer time, we go for long walks several times a day, but in the winter I'd rather get my business done quickly. Soon enough, I'm back inside and lying on my chair that looks out into the backyard. Sometimes mom sits with me - claiming that it's actually her chair - while I take my first morning nap.

When first morning nap is over, I stand sentinel at the window for Bunny Patrol. Anytime a bunny hops by I howl and whimper like the bunny is trying to eat me. Occasionally, mom takes me outside to go look for the bunny but there's too much going on outside - as soon as I step out the door, I forget about the bunny.

After Bunny Patrol, I like to have my second morning nap. Usually followed by my third morning nap. Soon enough, my horribly mean mom drags me down to the Crate of Doom while she leaves me forever! 

Turns out Mom didn't leave me forever. This time. She springs me from the Crate of Doom and we go outside again. Then I repeat the morning. Nap. Bunny patrol, Nap. Nap. Then it's time for the other best part of the day. Dinner! Soon enough, it's time for bed and another wonderful, perfect day with my mom is over. I can't wait for the next one!


Question of the Week: Do you like fantasy or realistic books? - Suggested by The Realm of Books.

I go in phases. Growing up, I only liked realistic books. I abhored fantasy and sci fi. Then came Harry Potter and I was a little more willing to try fantasy. What really got me into fantasy was Twilight. Suddenly, I was excited to read anything paranormal, as well as traditional high fantasy.

In the past year or so, I've reverted to my preference for realistic books. Not to the extent of my childhood - I still get in a fantasy here and there, but I do prefer realistic books. I think I overdid it on the fantasy and needed a break. I'll be back though.


How about you?


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.

  8. I'm pretty equal in reading fantasy and realistic. It totally depends on the mood of the moment.

    Snowbird, you are so handsome. Bet Mom doesn't like that Crate of Doom either.

  10. Nice! I'm like the exact opposite! As a young teen I read more contemps, but then after I got a taste for a paranormal book at 13 that's all I wanted to read! Though those were incredibly hard to find! Not like like today at all!!

    I still just read mostly paranormals. There are some dystopians and the occasional thriller thrown in, but that's all! I can't go back to straight up contemps because I just can't get into them like I do with a good paranormal!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!
