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.


  • 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.


  • 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:

  • What is your take on DNF books. Do you review them? Choose not to review them?

My answer

I don't review DNF books. I feel like I can't do it fairly when I haven't read the whole book.

That said, I rarely do DNF a book. I'm pretty good at screening my books beforehand and picking ones that I'll like. Or if I don't really like them, I can tolerate them enough to want to finish. And those books are worthy of reviews.

  1. Yes I say the same thing as well I don't review or rate DNF book if I have not finished reading the whole book. I thought I was the only one who does that. I am glad and happy I am not alone in that regard. Old Follower

  2. DNF books are rare for me too, but the occasional few have popped up. I'll write a review for them if it I read a significant amount. Usually I DNF because the book wasn't what I thought it was or there being some other reason with the writing or characters that nags me and just proceeds to do so with every page.

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  3. I can understand your feelings on the subject, but I do DNF reports because some readers who know I am reading it want my opinion so I feel I need to give it to them. I don't rate them with any kind of star, just DNF and why I stopped reading.

  4. I rarely do a DNF review, but if I stop reading due to something really egregious, I feel compelled to be honest about it in a review. If it just didn't interest me, I probably won't write a review, just leave a rating and quick explanation as to why on Goodreads.

    Already a follower! :)

  5. Thank you so much for featuring my blog, this week. :)

    I'm just the same, I can tolerate books enough to stick until the end!

    Thanks again for the feature!!

  6. I like your answer. i am usually pretty good at pcking my books out too. I also read reviews from those I have similiar likes and dislikes or petpeeves as me. That way i have a good idea what I am getting into. Most the time if I DFN a book, I just happen not to be in the mood for it and my ADD caught up with me.

  7. still posting review because it affected me in some ways. I want people to know how I felt reading the book because it might help them justify their take on the book (if it was similar to what i felt). Happy Friday!


I love comments. I appreciate every one! Thank you in advance.

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