Follow My Blog Friday #186



If you are new to the FF fun, Feature and Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, myself of course 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, 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!

Now to make this FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link above FEATURES and Features and Follow Friday and get on the waiting list!  It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

This Meme is hosted by Rachel from Parajunkee's View and Alison from Alison Can Read on Fridays.

To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

1.  (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee and Alison Can Read}

2.  (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers

3.  Put your Blog name and 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 followed

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!

Our Feature this week:

When did you start blogging?

I started this blog at the end of May in 2013. I still remember the frustration I had been feeling lately regarding my job and the only two things keeping me sane had been my love for books and my husband. So one day when he suggested about starting a book blog where I could talk about the books I was reading and interact with like minded book lovers, I just jumped at the idea and instantly revived an old blog which I had made while in college but never used. I started with a review of one of my favorite books, A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and have never looked back since.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

I love the reviewing part of my job. I just love to share my thoughts about a book that I have read and interact with other people who also love reading.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I blog about any book that I am able to finish reading. I am not choosy about the genre but still clear away from poetry and autobiographies. I have come across and read some very interesting books so far and hope to continue exploring.

What is your favorite book(s)?

Wow. That’s a difficult question. I love all books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie and so it is safe to say that I really like mysteries. I also love books with a good romance and if it has a suspense element in it then it is a plus. Family stories, good fantasy plots, magic settings also appeal to me. There are so many books I like that it is difficult to name a few.

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

I have met some great people because of blogging and also got introduced to books and genres that I would not have known had I not been blogging. I have finally found a great way to blow steam, enjoy myself, satisfy my bookish and artistic cravings plus meet some very talented people. When people comment, follow me and appreciate my efforts I feel so proud and so thankful that I took my husband’s advise. Life is great because of blogging!
