Feature & Follow-July 13, 2012

I'm joining in on Feature & Follow Friday again to help get more followers to my new site. I officially closed my old blog and added new ways to follow this one including Linky, Google Friend Connect and Networked Blogs. Don't forget to enter my giveaway here for a $25 Amazon gift card and two free ebooks after you follow. A question for the week is part of the meme and I included my answer below.
To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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"
  7. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  8. If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

I actually kind of just fell into it. I originally started my blog to market my novel and freelance writing projects. I've always been an avid reader, so I started to share a few quick reviews on books I was currently reading. However, I found I really enjoyed talking about books and got involved in more and more weekly memes including Top Ten Tuesday and Mailbox Monday. Although I still talk about my writing projects, the main focus on my blog is young adult books, paranormal romances and thrillers.



  1. Happy Friday! Hopping through. New GFC follower.

  2. Great answer, I kind of fell into it... I found a few book blogs and was like "OMG! I need to make one too!" :P

  3. Thanks! I followed you both back through GFC (glad I finally got it on my site, I thought it had already been phased out by Google).

  4. I participate in Top Ten Tuesday as well, but don't do it on a regular basis.
