**Feature & Follow #37 ~ Resolutions**


Happy Friday and welcome to the Blog Hop! 

Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by the talented ladies behind AlisonCanRead and Parajunkee's View. The intent of this blog hop is to get out there and meet other bloggers and gain new followers yourself. What sets this blog hop apart is the Feature. Each week, two blogs are featured, one at AlisonCanRead and one at Parajunkee's View. So make sure to hop over to those blogs to check out this week's Features.


This week's Features are:
Dandelion Wine
The Little Blog of Geek
This week's question is:
What are your blogging resolutions for 2014?


While I didn't officially make blogging resolutions, I do want to do a few things differently this year. 

  • I'm attempting to interact more with bloggers. I read so many blog posts but don't always leave a comment. Since I love getting comments, I've decided to make an effort towards leaving comments more often.
  • I'm going to participate in a few more memes this year. They're a lot of fun and help me interact more. :)
  • I'm reducing the number of tours, promos, etc., I participate in. This will help me to reduce the number of books both on my ereaders and my bookshelves. :) And I hope it'll reduce my stress level as well.
I think that's about it. What about y'all? Any blogging resolutions?

  1. I'm all for you having less stress, more fun, more time reading with no strings attached. I'm thinking of participating in more memes too, but I haven't ventured out yet. Teaser Tuesday seems like a lot of fun. Oh, I just about have my theme song ... topic? challenge? for Feb picked out. I should create a header for it, don't you think? Make it a real meme. Maybe the boys can draw me some musical notes. Happy Friday, Brandee. I hope the quiet isn't so bad.

    1. Teaser Tuesday is fun - I've done it once. :) But I'm gonna try to keep up with that one. I can't wait to hear the theme song challenge for Feb. :) And you and the boys should absolutely create a header! That would be excellent!!

      Happy Friday, Robyn!! The quiet has ended now...the weekend is HERE! *hahaha*

    1. Funny, isn't it, that so many of us have the same resolutions?!? I absolutely agree that blogging shouldn't be stressful and I'd made it that way. So I'm gonna do better in 2014! :)

      Thanks for stopping by, Jessica. Happy Friday!

  6. I think all your resolutions are good, Brandee. I agree about commenting on blogs - since I love getting comments myself, other bloggers probably do, too :) And it's fun to chat with other bloggers, about books, life, characters, plot twists... Once we have that important bookish thing in common, it's easy to get to know each other better!

    Have a fantastic Friday, my friend :) *hugs*

  7. Ohh your resolutions are very similar to mine! I'm a new blogger, but I've been following book blogs for years now! I've just been too shy to ever leave comments, but I'm working on changing that and interacting via twitter as well! But I'm a new follower via gfc! :) Have a great weekend!

    2. I know I'm excited to fangirl! What was your absolute favorite book last year?! Haha, I've found that just trying to communicate and take the time to comment thoughtfully on people's posts has helped a lot with the interaction!! Thank you for following back! :) I'm going to follow you on twitter so we can tweet our fangirlishness! Haha

    3. Oh gosh, Becca...I don't think I could choose just one. :) I will say that I found a new favorite author in J.A. Huss though...I've read EVERYTHING she's published. How about you? Oh, and I followed you on twitter too. :)

    4. haha I have heard of J.A. Huss! I just have never read anything by her! I need to though, because I've heard great things!! Hmm, right now, I'm slightly obsessed with Kasie West's books! She's awesome! Thanks for the twitter follow! I followed you back :)
