My Friday Follows – Feature & Follow and 18 & Over Blogger Follow


July 13, 2012 by thebookslayer

Feature & Follow #1

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where they each feature a fellow blogger, and ask a question, to be answered by anyone who wants to participate. We then hop around to other blogs, checking out their answers. It is a great way to get to know other bloggers.

Question for this week is…

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


I have to say that I started writing reviews at Goodreads. Thanks to a few groups there I was able to get some free copies of books for an honest review. That was about the time I decided that I really enjoyed reviewing books and sharing my thoughts with others. So naturally the next step for me was to post reviews on a blog.

I did start off on blogger with Sisters Unedited. I have now braved WordPress and would do it again. WordPress seems to be able to allow me some more freedom that blogger was unable too.

I do miss my GFC peeps. That was the toughest part to leave behind. I do feel like a new blogger in the aspect of gaining viewers again. But I have had great tweeps and GR friends who have been great about the whole move. :o)

Feel free to follow me with RSS Feedburner or Email. I do also have GR and Pinterest as well. Yes, all my sexy man pictures come from my Goodreads Peeps board.

18 & Over Blogger Follow # 37

Hosted by Crystal @ Reading Between the WinesEvery Friday hop along with your favorite 18 & over book bloggers! Just for the big-girl bloggers who love romance, erotica , man candy and everything naughty. Join the fun and find fabulous new book blogs to follow!

Question of the week is ….

When going on vacay; do you pack your print books, ereader or both?

Yes!I haven’t been on an actual vacation for years but when I last went I only had paperbacks to bring. It was actually before ereaders came out. lol Seriously, it has been that long.

However, when I pack a bag for the hospital stay after I give birth I usually have paperbacks and my nook. What can I say, a girl needs options. :o)

Your turn…

    Yeah it seems quite a few people had issues with blogger. I am not real tech savvy myself so I’ve stuck with it!

  9. So glad I started with WordPress, it seems I made the correct, uninformed call! Old Linky and Twitter follower, of course!
