Follow My Blog Friday #203

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 Review 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!

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.

Our Feature - A Kernel of Nonsense

1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging last November, but I don't think I really got the hang of it until earlier this year.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

There are so many wonderful things that come from book blogging, but what always stands out to me is the camaraderie I see between book bloggers. There is something infinitely special and beautiful about seeing people from all over the world meeting on common ground over books. Despite how different we may be, the power of the written word transcends these differences and I feel blessed to be a part of it.

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I'm a big YA reader, though I also enjoy some adult and middle school reads as well. More specifically, I'm all about fantasy. Give me magic, dragons, druids, Fae, swords fights, curses, kingdoms, or assassins and I'm good.

4. What are your favorite books?

This is single-handedly the hardest question for any bookworm, so I'm going to shamelessly name a bunch. Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, The Raven Boys, The Knife of Never Letting Go, Wildwood Dancing, To Kill a Mockingbird...and many, many more.

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

My love and appreciation for books has multiplied tenfold. I feel like book blogging has opened a whole new world for me. And of course, there's that moment I think we've all had when you realize, "These people get me." Sure, people may call us weird or nerdy, but finding other people that understand that books are more than just words on a page, that they're these capsules waiting for someone to open them and let loose the magic within, is the best part of blogging for me.

Question of the Week: Blogger pet peeves?

Too many but the one that most bugs me is you know you pre-posted an entry and when you check the next morning it didn't post.  Another one is the formatting isn't working properly.
