Feature and Follow #7

 
Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. 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.


Here’s this week’s question:

What do you hope to accomplish with your blog? Is it to one day become an author yourself, just for fun, maybe get some online attention, or maybe something very different?
 
 
I started my blog several months ago for a variety of reasons. First, I wanted to get in touch with people who shared my passion for both reading and writing. I have always loved books, particularly anything based on fantasy and mythical beings. Being able to communicate with others who share a similar obsession has proven to be both fulfilling and extremely rewarding. I have made so many friends and discovered books I never knew existed.
 
Secondly, as an author who has only recently debuted her first novel, I was advised that blogging was a great way to get noticed. So far, I have not been disappointed. There have been many of you who have offered their support and provided postive comments regarding Mystery Falls.
To all of you, I would like to say:-
 

THANK YOU!!
 
 
 And thirdly, for fun. I had no idea blogging could be so much fun!!

  1. Great answer!! Lucky it has worked out because we may never have crossed paths otherwise. And I would never have had the chance to read Mystery Falls, so Thank You for writing it (And finish book 2 already!! I'm being patient, I promise!)

  2. Awesome! I hope to be a published writer one day too. Struggling trying to get my book out there since it's paranormal and not many agents want to look at another paranormal read, but I am persistent! Also I love reading and love sharing my opinion with everyone!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. I couldnt agree more. Interacting with readers is just as important to me as creating the stories I write.

    I agree, blogging is fun and as an author as well, I know it's more fun that producing a book! (I just published three myself)
