Follow Friday #13 & Book Blogger Hop #12

HAPPY FRIDAY!!  I'm joining in Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop again this week.  I've got a round up of what's been happening on my blog this week to give you an idea of what I get up to, take a look around!  Enter my 150+ followers giveaway here if you haven't already.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee, head on over there to join in the fun, meet new blogger friends  and meet her featured blogger of the week Bibliophilic Book Blog.

Who are your favorite authors??

I've got so many authors I like!  It's hard to pick just a few but here goes.  In no particular order the ones which come to mind are Jeaniene Frost, J.R. Ward, Charlaine Harris, Richelle Mead, Kelly Armstrong and H.P. Mallory.

Book Blogger Hop

I'm also taking part in the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Crazy For Books so head on over to join in the fun!  This weeks question comes from Vicki at The Wolf's Den

"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"

That's a difficult one.  I think it's always sad to loose followers because it makes you wonder what you could have done to hold their interest.  However, sometimes people are just not interested any more, no longer have the time or simply no longer read the genre you review if your blog is genre specific like mine.  

I've never actually stopped following a blog yet because I only tend to follow ones which interest me, it just happens that a lot interest me!  If that changes then I would stop following a blog so I could concentrate my time and interest.  I may stop following a blog if the posts were repeatedly offensive though.

With that question in mind Jen has set us all a challenge:
BLOG HOP CHALLENGE:  With this in mind, I have a challenge for you.  This challenge will take some dedication on your part this week.  I want you to find ONE blog in the Hop list that you genuinely WANT to follow (try to find a new blog, if you can!) and make at least 5 comments on their blog this week on 5 different posts.  Get to know this blogger and what they post about.  Next week, as part of your Hop post, I want you to post about your experience with this challenge.  Just tell us what you thought of the challenge, who you found to follow and link to the posts that you commented on  I hope you will participate and help us all to build our community!  Let's dig a little deeper and get to know each other!  Remember, the point is to be genuine!  Not to follow for the sake of following!  Because, if you are genuine, you are much more likely to get people to follow you back.  Trust me on this.

Note:  If you can't find a new blog to follow, then go ahead and use one of your already followed blogs that is in the Hop list.

  1. Hello Magic Faerie!
    Hopping by for parajunkee's Friday follow, and I like your choice of authors ;-)


  2. Hi Jen,
    I understand what you mean about having so many blogs you love because I'm the same way and sometimes feel like I neglect them.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Stopping by to say Hello! I'm trying not to neglect today! :) Already a follower.

  4. I'm always a little bummed when I lose followers but make every effort to
    turn every lost follower into a learning experience so I can improve my

    On the flip side, I only stop following people when they give me a reason to
    such as being totally off message or being too controversial in an negative,
    over-the-top way.

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!

    Glad to see you enjoyed Sins of the Heart. Sins of the Soul was a great read too....I think you'll like it. I haven't read Sins of the Flesh yet, but I'm anxious to start it!
