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.

Our Feature this week:

Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My!


 When did you start blogging?

I actually started blogging back in 2007 and my blog has transitioned a lot since then. It use to be on blogger, but now I moved it to wordpress and lost a lot of bloggers I had since wordpress doesn’t do GFC followers. So I am currently trying to regain my followers using bloglovin. 🙂

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Being able to have an outlet to talk about the books I read or listen too. No one in my family really reads that much, so I don’t have anyone to chat books with.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

Oh I blog about a lot of different types of books. I also have a blog buddy and it seems like what I don’t blog about she does so we pretty much tackle most genres. My favorites are YA paranormal, paranormal romance, mystery/thrillers, horror and historical romances.

What is your favorite book(s)?

Persuasion by Jane Austen, The Drake Chronicles by Alyxandra Harvey and many more. 🙂

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

Getting books from publishers and interacting with other bloggers about books!

 

This weeks Question:

What living author or authors would you like to have dinner with? (Try to think beyond JK Rowling)

Art. I love to draw and create things. I also like to much about in my garden, but more so, I like to create art that goes in my garden and then I can plant flowers that pop out of my art. I’m a big fan of mixed media type stuff and I will paint on anything.

Parajunkee, Urban Fantasy, Blogger TipsNew Feature! Next weeks question will be a share.

Have you met a favorite author and have a picture? Share.
