Feature & Follow Friday #43

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Meme: Feature Follow

Day: Friday 

Premis: The meme hosts will 1) feature two (2) blog sites and 2) propose two questions that participating bloggers will answer on their blogs sites and give their followers the chance to join in.

This week's featured blogs: Dear Restless Reader and Mab is Mab

Follow these sites. 

This week's featured questions: Don't forget to leave a comment.

Q: We are about to see a lot of posts and tweets about reader conventions, RT, BEA, ALA and many more are starting soon. Which one would you love to attend? Where and why?

A: I attend so many conventions for my day-to-day job that the word 'convention' is synonymous with work/dread/boredom. As such, I don't get the happy feelings everyone else apparently gets with the mere thought of participation. I suspect if I ever attended one of these conventions, I'd find they are nothing like the boring healthcare ones I've attended in the past... and I'd forever be hooked. Mental note, 'Research the conventions and attend at least one in your lifetime.' 

FEATURE FOLLOW RULES (as described on Parajunkee)

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!


  1. I haven't been to any either, but I am going to one this August. But I can definitely understand your trepidation, but I bet a reader convention would be awesome!

  5. Hahaha! That's so cool that, as an author, the word convention is a daily dose for you, but I bet the books ones will be even super cool! :) Awesome!

  6. I would love to attend any of them. Since I live in Sweden it´s kind of hard though =)
    New Follower!

  7. I'd bet you'd love a book convention. It'd probably be completely different from the healthcare ones you attend for nursing. I've never been to any myself, but after checking some out today on the internet, I'm dying to go to BEA. :)

    New follower :D
