Feature & Follow Friday #2

Welcome to Feature and Follow Friday! This is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee that is aimed to help bloggers grow their audience and make new friends. They feature two bloggers every week.  I decided to do something a bit different this week.  I made a video in response to this weeks question: What book are you embarrassed to admit you loved?  My son says it's bad form to do a video up and down like I did but it was hard to hold the phone the other way.  Oppsie!  Sorry 'bout that guys.  

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

  1. (RequiredFollow 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
  8. If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

  5. I've read some middle-grade books and also enjoyed them. I wish there wasn't any embarrassment to be found. I don't even have an excuse of having a child, I just thought the books were cute. There should be no shame in admitting that! :)
