Feature and Follow Friday



The Feature & Follow is back with a few changes. 


The Feature & Follow is back after a two-month hiatus! I know you missed it. I've missed it too! But we wanted to make it bigger and better - and I hope we have accomplished that.


THE CHANGES:

  • Weekly Features will be chosen from LIKES on the linkylist and not as random.
  • Bloggers and Authors will get to have ONE spot a quarter (90 days) as the feature. But, you can still participate.
  • The reason we are switching to this method is because we had issues with contacting people. This way we just choose them.
  • We have also switched to THUMBNAIL link list – use a graphic that you want us to use when we showcase you as the feature.
  • Weekly questions have been changed to Post Prompts. Very similar just a little more open ended.
  • We are asking for ideas submitted by participants.
  • We will have the post schedule available so you can schedule in advance.

HOW DOES THE #FF WORK?

  • The goal is to increase blog followers, make friends and have something to post.
  • You create your own post using the post prompt.
  • You leave your link and thumbnail in the linky list that links back to your post prompt.
  • Once you have your post up and linked, visit other posts and tell them hi. The point is to FOLLOW them not just comment.
  • If you see a post that just hit it to the moon, or just want to show appreciation to a fellow blogger friend, like their name on the linky list to show some appreciation.
  • The person with the most likes gets chosen as the next Feature (you can be chosen every 90 days unless we are in need of features)
  • It is required that if you participate that you have to follow the FEATURE. It is a big no-no to participate and ignore the feature. They are the special snowflake in this little blizzard.
  • As a participant it is up to your discretion on how you want people to follow. Please post RSS, GFC etc if you have a follow of choice.
Specific RULES
  • 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 followedFollow 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”
  • 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
THE weekly feature:



THE POST prompt:

  • Top Ten Favorite Book Covers

My answer

It's hard to choose. Both because there are so many gorgeous covers and because - for the most part - I am not a big cover person. I like pretty covers, of course, but I rarely choose to read or not read a book based on the cover. Often, I don't really notice them. Still, here are a few that I really like.

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

Die for Me (Revenants, #1)

The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)

The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4)

What I Thought Was True

The One (The Selection, #3)

Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely, #1)

Endlessly (Paranormalcy, #3)

Dreamless (Starcrossed, #2)

  11. Hi Alison, Thank you so much for hopping over to my blog (The Plot Bunny) and saying hello. I have been following you already on Twitter and Bloglovin. Thank you for hosting this blog hop, it's really great, and I have discovered so many new blogs that I love and made some great connections. I just re-launched/started my blog (I was blogging with a friend before at a different space)...so this has helped get me reconnected with previous friends from my former blog. I love your list! I totally meant to add the new illustrated Harry Potter to my list, but managed to leave it out. I also love The Wrath and the Dawn cover. Have you seen the new cover for the 2nd book? The Rose and the Dagger? It is simply STUNNING.

This blog is now an award free zone. I just don't have time to pass on the awards as they deserve.
