Feature and Follow Friday #30

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Hey guys, this is my Feature and Follow Friday post! This post is hosted by two different blogs, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read! This meme is here for everyone to be able to get their blog out there and get more followers!! Links are below for you to look at others, follow them, and link your own blog!

Have you come up with any special memes or features on your blog that you’d like people to visit more?
 I do have a feature that I started up back in September. It was the first time I ever did it, but it turned out to be a bigger success than I had planned. It is called Swag September. I spend the month reading books by authors that I have swag for. If I don't have the swag, I won't read it. I ask you all to tag along, though you don't have to read only swag books. I just do it myself. Along with my readings I talk to indie authors as well as published if I can find any that want to give some goodies. I give away tons of swag ranging for a couple bookmarks to big prize packs with all sorts of trinkets inside. I also gave away some ebook copies as well as the authors donating ebook and physical copies. The authors give guest posts or interviews or excerpts to go with a spotlight for them. It was awesome to get in touch and get to know so many of them. I hope to have it even bigger this year. Click here to see more about it for when it comes around in September! I also left all the author spotlights and giveaway links for you to see how it all went last year!!

I also came up with a few memes before. I started off with trying Pick-A-Book Thursday. I made TBR Jars all pretty and would pull one out of the jar. I would then tell you a bit about it and then write the review for it the following week. If I wasn't able to get around to the review yet, I would tell you a little more about the book with either an excerpt or a teaser until I got around to it. I never got anyone to join in on it or even comment so I just gave up on it.

I then started a meme with my bestie, Kristalyn. We came up with Memory Lane Monday. In where we would re-read books. We were wanting to re-read a lot of them, so we would trade off weeks. One week she would post the book she was going to read and the next week and I would write the review for mine and then we would switch the next week. It had us reading 2 re-reads a month. We both tried really hard on that one as well but didn't get it going either.

I will get one going eventually that will stick :) If you guys like the idea of any of these and might be interested, let me know and I can try to get them going again!!

Next Week's Question:
Have you ever been inspired by a book character to do something? Who was the character and what was it?

3. 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
4. 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.

  1. This sounds like a very interesting meme! I have tons of swag for books that I've not read that I've gotten from giveaways and such. I may have to join in! I hope you have a great week, Amber! I'm an old follower. :)
