Feature and Follow

Feature and Follow Friday is a blog hop that is designed to provide some much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog for the week, it's an interesting way to get to know one another.

If you would like to follow me, you can do so by GFC, Twitter or Linky .

I also make sure to go back and follow everyone that comments and I try to always follow twitter along with GFC/Linky. So if you have a twitter that is not on your page for some reason leave it in the comments and I will follow you that way too!

 Q: Confess your blogger sins! Is there anything as a newbie blogger that you've done, that as you gained more experience you were like -- oops?

Well I've made it through my first year of blogging and to be honest I didn't expect all the crazy personal stuff that happened to me to happen. So I felt like there were times when I just couldn't keep up but that's life. So I had a period where I didn't really get reviews up when I wanted to. I still have a bunch sitting in word files.

I'm terrible with email, I think that's my biggest sin. I haven't had a chance to really even read all of them.

  1. It drives me crazy when I open my email and there's a 100 new emails. I'm like OMG WTF...most of them end up being spam or something completely stupid like Direct TV asking me if I want to do ANOTHER survey.

  2. I'm still trying to figure my way through my reviews. Right now, I write them on goodreads and then use their tool to copy it into my blog. I like how it gives the cover of the book and a link to the goodreads shelf. My first few reviews I would DL the image, link it to the amazon.com purchase page, and then copy from my blog to goodreads. I seem to have reversed it. :)

  3. The good thing is, you have reviews waiting to be posted and if you have a few days open, you can post an old review. there's nothing wrong with that.

  4. I just started writing and accepting book reviews, so I have just few reviews on my blog at the moment. I check my email regularly, like twice a day, and I try to unsubscribe to sites I no longer find useful.

  5. Blogging can be hard. Sometimes we have things going on in our life and we just can't review as many books as we would like.

    Old follower. Have a great day.

  7. I am really horrible with reviews - I review as I read. I would love to get a stock pile of reviews so I can post them more often, since life gets in the way (kids, work, etc) of reading at the pace I would like. :)

    Great answer!

  8. I went through a bout of laziness where I was reading plenty of books, but simply didn't feel like taking time to write reviews- I just really wanted to read the next book in my pile since they all looked so good! I'm hoping to combat the laziness now lol!

  9. It's too stressful sometimes to take too much on at one time.

  11. I think it's important to remember that our blogs are supposed to be a fun hobby! I love sharing my views on books I've read, but sometimes, life does get busy.

    I'm an old follower stopping by, here's my FF post for this week.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  12. I have also waiting too long to review books. And I get quite behind on emails too! We just have to remember what's important...what our priorities are. :)
