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.

Q: Share something you’ve learned about book blogging or just blogging in general in the last month.

Hmm this a tough question. I think it's the power of google. I've round that using google drive to write my reviews helps me pull them up no matter where I am at. Rather than having bits and pieces all over the place. I also know that writing a review while I'm reading a book works out better for me. That way I don't lose my thoughts about particular areas. I've tried using bookmarks but unless I can write in the margins that doesn't really work for me. Google calendar is my best friend and helps keep me in line.

  3. I was using Google calendar for a while and it was great - now that I've switched to WP I have a calendar that actually has my posts on it, which I'm loving. Either way, a calendar is certainly a must. I don't know if I could write reviews as I read, I think I might get too distracted - but I do mark up what I'm reading hard core so that I can remember what I was thinking as I read.

  5. I actually write reviews wherever it's easiest. most of the time it's a word doc and then my "Notes" if it's my iPod

    Followed!

  7. I LOVE Google Calendar!!! Especially since I have an Android phone and I have my calendar on my phone (it has it's own page on my home screen LOL)I've never thought of writing my reviews in Drive though. I use it to keep track of upcoming releases for my Tempt Me post (and it's turned into my buy list) and I've used it with sharing and creating quizzes with my book group. Have a great weekend Jen!

  9. I usually write my notes for reviews on post-its and then type my whole review in one sitting, so I don't really need to use google drive. That's still a cool idea - I would never have thought of that!
