Feature & Follow { 10 }

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. The two blogs they are featuring this week: The Book Reaper & Ed and Em's Reviews.

Q:What blogger inspires you? It can be any kind, it doesn't have to be a book-blog.
A lot of book bloggers inspire me, especially ones who aren't super popular yet (less than 500 followers), but have some type of original content and a unique layout.

Having original content is important to me because there are tons of book blogs out there; you really have to find a niche to stand out. And a unique layout shows that the blogger is somewhat investing their time and effort into their blog. It doesn't just look nice, but it's professional, easy to navigate and read your content, etc. Those things inspire me besides the awesome content....

So, of course I'll start out with Parajunkee because she is one of the first book bloggers I was inspired by. I've read her blog for years before deciding to jump into my own.

Also, Dazzling Reads is one of my favorite bloggers. She started out a little while before I did, but then I went MIA. But boy, did she blow up in popularity! It's much deserved :0) Love her content & she finds the best books for Waiting on Wednesday, lol.

Smexy Books. Love. Love. Love. Sometimes I feel a lot of bloggers & booktubers are all about YA content. It's great; I love YA, but I also love my adult books too & Smexy Books covers that for me. They're hilarious bloggers too.

& lastly, Lexie Reads. Okay, so I'm a little biased about this blog because she's a great friend, lol. But when you're friends with a fellow blogger, it's so nice to be able to compare & discuss books with each other... especially if the reason you started a book blog was because you have no one in real life to "talk book" with :0)

So that's it! Of course I can go on and on because there are tons of great book bloggers out there & I could add some booktubers who inspire me too, lol, but these are my top faves.

I can't wait to find out who inspired whom. I love finding new book bloggers! Let me know if you are a new/old follower & please give me some time to comment back :0)

Actually, that's why I started my blog. To make bookish friends, as I go to an athletic school. :)
And I'm satisfied so far.

Great choices! I'm going to check out everyone else. I completely agree that a blogger needs to stand out and have original content.
