Gain New Blog FollowersWelcome to the Feature & Follow


Increase Blog Followers, gain Book Blog 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.

All features are chosen randomly to be the feature. They are not chosen by content or name.

When did you start blogging?

I started really blogging a little earlier this year in May after my father passed. Seeing as how I didn’t feel like I had anyone to talk to, I thought prose & poetry could help with that. I’ve had a book tumblr for a while and it just didn’t feel like it was enough for what I wanted to venture into. I thought I wanted to make a bigger splash in professionalism and seriousness by starting a real blog, in which people cared just a little bit more about what I had to say.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Feeling that I have some sort of purpose. It feels nice to be acknowledged and have my opinion on something matter, even if for a second. It’s also extremely satisfying to get to know the other bloggers out there who share my interests in books and writing. Before, I was led to believe by others that my constant love of reading was a waste. People can be funny in that way.

What is your favorite book(s)?

This is a loaded question and you know it, haha! WELL, as my answer for this week’s question would show, one of my favorite series is the Charley Davidson series, which I just discovered this year. I also love some of the Harry Potter books, Agatha Christie Poirot mysteries, the Song of Ice and Fire series and a lot of Dickens’, Hemingway’s and Steinbeck’s works. If I had to simplify it further, I’d have to say in non-fiction And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie and in fiction Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt are my favorite books.

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

Well, I suppose the best thing so far has just been my state of mind is more stable. Although I’m still unemployed (and seriously still looking) reading, writing and blogging seem to be a great way of uplifting myself, even if my family think it’s a waste of time. It keeps my mind occupied and helps maintain my creativity, and for that I am truly grateful.
