Follow Friday

This is a weekly blog meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read
 
The Rules:

  • The goal is to increase blog followers, make friends and have something to post.
  • You create your own post using the post prompt.
  • You leave your link and thumbnail in the linky list that links back to your post prompt.
  • Once you have your post up and linked, visit other posts and tell them hi. The point is to FOLLOW them not just comment.
  • If you see a post that just hit it to the moon, or just want to show appreciation to a fellow blogger friend, like their name on the linky list to show some appreciation.
  • The person with the most likes gets chosen as the next Feature (you can be chosen every 90 days unless we are in need of features)
  • It is required that if you participate that you have to follow the FEATURE. It is a big no-no to participate and ignore the feature. They are the special snowflake in this little blizzard.
  • As a participant it is up to your discretion on how you want people to follow. Please post RSS, GFC etc if you have a follow of choice.

Specific RULES:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed 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”
  • 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”
  • If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love…and the followers


This week's prompt is: How Do You Track New Releases?


MY ANSWER: Well when it comes to new releases in a series, I will use Goodreads to find the future title and its release date. Other times it's through the author's website/twitter/word of mouth in some way and I again, refer to Goodreads to double check sources and what not. And then I make a list!! I love list making! Though I have to update my list several times as the first draft is usually printed out in January after I've been learning about all my early year releases. And it pretty much acts as my shopping list! LOL!

  1. I find fict fact to be a great resource for tracking new books in a series, even new series by authors I've read.

  2. I love lists too, but I don't track new releases. Maybe I should start. :-) Have a great weekend.

  3. I track everything on goodreads. It is so handy for keeping track of books. I find out about a lot of new releases from netgalley, edelweiss, and other bloggers in addition to authors.
