Feature & Follow Friday (16)


Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and
Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet other book bloggers!

This week's question is:
What do you hope to accomplish with your blog? Is it to one day become an author yourself, just for fun, maybe get some online attention, or maybe something very different?

Blogging is something that we do for fun. We didn't really have anyone besides ourselves to discuss books with. Some of our family members were rather tired of hearing our nonstop book chatter, so we thought that we'd start a book blog to meet others who are as obsessed with reading as we are and who don't mind talking about books all the time. The blog has given us the perfect outlet to share our love of books, and even though running it is a job in itself at times, we're extremely glad that we decided to start it.

If you're a new follower, be sure to let us know so that we can follow you back. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I think book blogging has turned my previously mildly frightening book obsession into a shared experience- it always helps to know we aren't alone!

    I'm an old follower!

    1. Ally and I are the biggest book nerds in the family, so it just seemed natural to start a blog together.

  4. Hopping through. There are many reasons I blog, but ultimately it's to have fun. That's most important.

    1. I completely agree- if it isn't fun, then it's really not worth doing.

    1. I think there are a lot of us who took to blogging because we didn't have many other people to chat about books with.

  9. That is the very reason I started blogging, so I could talk to someone other than myself, about books.
    Here's my FF.
    Happy Friday!

    1. If we hadn't started the blog, Ally and I would still only be talking about books among ourselves.

  10. Yes, book blogging is definitely what I'd call a healthy and productive outlet for all the book talk in the world :)

  16. Thanks very much for visiting and following me, I have returned the favour.
    I know how you feel, by the way - plenty of people I know get tired of hearing me harp on about books. A blog is a nice way to get all those thoughts off our chest!

    1. Yes it is, especially when a character gets on your nerves and you need to rant, or something unbelievable just happened in a book and you just have to share it with someone.

  20. I think I drive a ton of my friends and family crazy talking about all the books I read. Since I started my blog, though, I don't talk about books ALL the time :)

    1. When we're among family, we try to save the book talk for when we go on our after dinner walk, but sometimes we can't help ourselves and still try to steer the conversation at the dinner table towards books.

  21. I can't count how many eye rolls I received when I wanted to talk about certain books that I love so much.

  25. Running a book blog definitely feels like a job sometimes! With the amount of work that's put into it. Sometimes it interferes with my actual job haha.

    Nice answer :)
