Feature and Follow [1]

August 16, 2013 Meme-tastic 20

Feature and FollowLast week I jumped on the bandwagon for the Stacking the Shelves meme, so this Friday I may as well jump on the bandwagon for the Feature and Follow, hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read! You can find out more about it by clicking on the image.

So how this works is, you follow me, I’ll follow you, and we both get new friends out of this deal. Sounds awesome, right? So just let me know in the comments if you’ve started following me (I prefer Bloglovin personally, but whatever you prefer!) and then I can hop over and follow you back!

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

And oh, but there is a lot I’ve learned this past month!

  • Making friends who also blog about books is a good idea (before you annoy your friends who don’t care).
  • A posting/reading schedule is essential especially if you’re as disorganized as me.

I think a lot of that was probably obvious, but when I first started? It wasn’t that obvious at all!

      I try so hard not to babble at my friends/family or in my personal blog about book blogging but it’s so hard! It really is such a big part of my life, too.

      Thanks for the follow. I followed you back! 🙂

    Ha ha … “before you annoy your friends who don’t care.” Yes. This. I don’t have a lot of reading friends in my life, really only the blogging world (and the Edmonton Book Bloggers!), and, I guess, the people I work with at the library. But I tend to read different books from what my coworkers at the library read, so I still feel alone. But you’re never alone with books!

      I have a personal blog and I’m pretty sure I’m this close to being unfriended if I keep on talking about books and book reviews and blogging. I don’t have a lot of reading friends in real life, either, and even the ones I do have don’t read as fast as I do so they get annoyed with all the “OMG, have you read this book yet? Did you get to this part?”

      I am so excited that there are other book bloggers around here! I don’t feel quite so alone anymore (though you’re right that you’re never alone with books).

    Haha I love your advice! Is def a good idea to have book blogging pals…I found out quickly that my friends don’t really care/understand what the heck I’m talking about with blogging / books.
    Happy to be a new book blogging friend!

      Yeah, I’m pretty sure mine aren’t too thrilled with all my babbling about books and blogging. 🙂 Thanks for the follow!

      If it wasn’t for my calendar I would be so lost! It helps so much more than I knew it would before I started using it.

      Thanks for following! 🙂

    I laughed so hard when I read “(before you annoy your friends who don’t care” because I have such a hard time not doing that! I’m so super excited about my blog that it’s all I want to talk about. My poor brother who I’ve been staying with this summer has gotten blog overload and I think if I mention my blog to him one more time he just might scream. LOL!

    Thanks for stopping by my FF. Following you back 🙂

      Oh my gosh, I ramble at my sister a lot of the time. I will call her up and be all excited and she’ll listen to me, but I’m pretty sure she’s tuned me out entirely. And don’t get me started on my poor friends who read my personal blog that’s turned more into the ramble about books… Thanks for coming by and following me!

    Welcome to FF! 🙂 Yep, making book blogging friends is a wonderful thing. And schedules are of the utmost importance. 😉

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m now following you via BL and Twitter.

    Have a great weekend!

    • Laureen

      Thank you for coming by and following me! I’m slowly learning about this whole book blogging thing, but so far the friends are turning out to be the best part.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
    I agree, when I started a book blog I had no idea what I was doing! Good luck and I’ve followed you back on bloglovin.
    I’m trying to make an effort to make more blogger friends so if you see random comments from me all over your blog, that’s probably why 🙂

      Thanks for following back! I think no one knows what we’re doing when we first start, but finding other people who do is such a great way to learn. I’m making an effort to make more blogging friends as well. 🙂
