Feature & Follow Friday

Welcome to my resurrected book blog!  

It's really strange coming back, feels like I'm a newbie again but not! Looking forward to catching up with old friends and making lots of new ones.  Please excuse the jumbled look of my blog just now, I'm giving it a serious makeover :-)

What is Feature & follow?

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

The featured blogs:

Alluring Reads

This weeks question

Q: Do you read one book at a time or do you switch back and forth between two or more?

A: I ususally only read one book at once as it seems to suit me better

Lets get following!

What are the rules of Feature & Follow?

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}

  6. 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"
  7. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers

Thoughts on re-entering the book blog world

I have really taken my eye off what is happening in the world of book blogging (but not blogging as a whole but that's another story!) so now that I'm back I need to get up to speed!  What have I missed?

Which are the must reads blogs now?
What should I take part in?
Are people still using Blogger or have lots of people gone over to Wordpress?
What's happening about GFC that I keep seeing?
Does everyone have Twitter now?
What about a Facebook page?
What else do I need to know?

I have so many questions and things I want to know! I feel like I'm returning to a friendly world which I have missed but that life made me take a break from.

I'm Back! My book blog rises again like a Phoenix!!!

Eternally Books
Welcome to my book blog!!
I love to read and I love to write so I love to book blog :-)  I have not had much time to do either in the last few months as life has got in the way. I was forced to suspend my book blog but now I am all sorted and want to revive my book blog which I loved doing so much! 

Some of you reading might even remember my book blog known as Magic Faerie's Paranormal Review. I have decided to revive my old blog rather than start a new one but I am giving it a complete overhaul including a new name.

Over the coming days (weeks?) I will be updating the look and content of my blog. I look forward to sharing it with you. Among other things I will be:
  • Changing the name to refresh the blog (done)
  • Updating the look of the blog
  • Checking out what is going on in the book blogging community
  • Clearing out old or irrelevant content, side bars etc
  • Writing some fantastic reviews
  • And more.....

I'm really looking forward to this!
