The Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy-For-Books and the Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee’s View and they are where we get to have one big blog party! We get to meet new bloggers, find new blogs, and have FUN FUN FUN!
Each week Jenn asks a question. This week it is:
I know that I don’t do as well as I should on visiting blogs, but I try to check out as many as I can everyday. Posting on twitter helps cause I find myself linking to reviews more that way then when I look at my overwhelming google reader.
Now the blog hop is to find new blogs. It’s NOT all about getting as many followers as you can get (at least not to me!). It’s not nice to sign up and go to as many blogs as possible, follow them, leave a comment with the link to your blog and not even look to see what the blog is about. My opinion is that you visit a blog. You look around. You find out if they like the same kinds of books and you follow them if you’ll be interested in their reviews. Now don’t get me wrong, I love having followers, YES, I do. But I don’t want a bunch of people that never look at my blog again and are only following me to get more followers themselves. So if you follow me and I check out your blog, I’ll only follow you if you have content that interests me. NOT because you follow me.
So to make things easy I’ll tell you about me. I read a lot of YA. I also read paranormal, urban fantasy and historical fiction. And I’m going to start doing my Wednesday feature of a children’s book (review books are on the way!) again. I don’t care for mystery if it doesn’t have paranormal or urban fantasy aspect (generally). I don’t read a lot of chic lit (just a teeny bit) and I don’t review any non fiction at this time.
I DO do a lot of contests and you can find them at the top of my page.
That stuff interest you? Then follow me! If not and you want to follow me anyway, go for it! But it doesn’t mean I’ll follow you back!
Thanks for stopping by though and I hope you’ll let me know you were here!
