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.

Parajunkee, Urban Fantasy, Blogger Tips

Fandomly Bookish

1. When did you start blogging? – I actually started blogging around 2010, I think. But it wasn’t the kind of blogging that I’m doing now. It was for a fansite called RobstenDreams.com. So, I was just dealing with updates and uploading HQ photos only. With this one, Fandomly Bookish, I have this blog since 2012 but just made it fully active last year.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging? – The community itself, the authors, bloggers and readers! I love them and it’s so much fun interacting with them. I get to share my thoughts about a certain book to everyone and people could throw in their comments about it too, or even find a way to fangirl with me! Plus, there’s just so many cool stuff happening around our community everyday! 🙂

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about? – Young Adult and New Adult books! <3

4. What is your favorite book(s)? – Oh dear. I’ve got loads of favorite books and series! I’ll probably tire you out with my list but I’ll just do a quick rundown … 1. The Mortal Instruments Series & The Infernal Devices Trilogy by Cassandra Clare 2. Colleen Hoover books 3. Making Faces by Amy Harmon 4. Abbi Glines books 5. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (You can stop by my blog for my full list of favorite books, though.)

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging? –  Hmmm the best thing would probably be that I gained a lot of friends (from across the globe) when I started book blogging! Seriously, even my personal Facebook accounts is filled with book readers! Then every now and then I get a message from them asking for recommendations on what to read next and all those bookish questions. *happy dance* Always happy to help them! <3
