To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
    • (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
    • (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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
    • 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”
    • If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love…and the followers
    • If you’re new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!     This is a Blog Hop!
    • Weekly question?  What would you do over if you were to start your blog over from scratch?

    • MY Answer:   I would have thought through having a second email address and a second GFC ID  so that I would not confuse myself and suffer such frustration....oh and I might have some of the beautiful wall papers for my blog...sparkly, colorful and artsy!

Juli Rahel said...

Yeah, that's probably my only thing, having a proper email adress for my blog. I wasn't expecting to love book blogging so much and really get into it and now I'm stuck with a stupid email adress -.- Thanks for sharing, I'm a new follower!

That's definitely great advice for people starting out. I didn't make an email for my blog until a little while in and it was so confusing. I know have my GFC and blog email as two different accounts which is annoying bc I have to switch accounts often. Maybe I should change that lol thanks for stopping by today! I'm going to follow you back.

I think I'd get *more* confused if I had a separate email address! :-)

When I first started blogging I had a separate email address so I wouldn't get confuzzled or anything like that!(:

Hi Beth, I agree with the second email - everything was getting all jumbled and my friends and family started getting angry that I had trouble finding their emails! lol

I'm visiting from Mother Daughter Book Reviews and I'm now following you via GFC (which I don't have), Linky and email. I'd love for you to reciprocate. Here is the link to my FF post:


Have a wonderful weekend! Cheers!
