Feature & Follow (18)

Gain New Blog Followers 
The Feature & Follow blog hop is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. 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 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

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 have you learned from book blogging that you didn't know before about the publishing industry?

A: I've learned a lot, really. I certainly don't know everything about ARCs yet (I still consider myself a baby book blogger), but I know way more than I did when I first started blogging. I've learned that authors and publishers are *gasp* really just people, and they all seem so much more real and normal than they did when I was just a book nerd without a blog :) I definitely don't know everything, but I'm learning more every day!

  1. Hopping through. Isn't it funny how blogging humanizes so many different people. I was exactly the same.

  6. That authors and publishers are also just 'people like you and me' is also something I recently discovered. I always found them so intimidating :p
