Welcome to the Feature & Follow


Increase Blog FollowersThe 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?

The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. 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 just started this July.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
The blogging community! I’ve been receiving some very overwhelming support from other bloggers and readers. Everyone is just so welcoming and friendly!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?
Young Adult and New Adult are my main interest so they’re what I blog the most about.

What is your favorite book(s)?
There are so many but I’m going to have to pick The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare because they were the books that introduced me to YA and got me back into reading. I used to read when I was younger but somehow I just stopped. Then I picked up City of Bones one day because I’d seen some recs online and I haven’t stopped reading since!!

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
Besides meeting other really awesome book bloggers I would say it’s that I got to interact with authors!! They’re like the celebrities in the book world so everytime I get a retweet, favour or a reply on Twitter from an author, I squeal and do a happy dance inside 😀

 

 

 

This weeks Question:

Blogger pet peeves? – provided by Take Me Away

Blogger Pet Peeves are a little too many – but my biggest one is software and hosting issues. OMG I just lost 6 days of post this week, because of some “unknown” issue on my server. When you are your own IT – the only person you can blame is yourself. *head desk*
