Feature & Follow Friday


Hello all, it's that day of the week where we learn new things about each other and discover new blogs along the way.  We also help each other by becoming followers of one another.  Normally that following would be through GFC (which would be great if you'd still take a few seconds to do), but with that being eliminated for certain blogs (a big boo-hiss to that) I now ask that you follow through a RSS Feed (or Twitter, FB, or email) which you can find to the right.  I want to thank all of you ahead of time who choose to become a follower and make sure to let me know in the comments if you're new so I doubly make sure to follow you back.  And now for this weeks get to know me question....

Q:  Confess your blogger sins!  Is there anything as a newbie blogger that you've done, that as you gained more experience you were like--oops?

A:  It seems so long ago since I was a newbie.  But honestly, I can't think of anything I did horribly wrong.  It's the little things that bug me still.....like not catching a typo, STILL NOT having a button made (I know you're all mocking me that I still haven't managed to make one--LOL), or not having my post look picture perfect.  I'm a Type A person so it's the little things that bother me.

  1. I'm brand spanking new and I think my biggest mistakes atm, or at least things I should fix pronto, are: requesting too many galleys/arcs, no review policy, and being a bit disorganized!

    Hi!

  2. I know I should review my review before I submit it, but I'm forever checking it a day or two after publishing it and finding stupid typos. Maybe one day I'll learn.

  3. I just started my blog last year. Sometimes I don't catch the typos, and I haven't made a button yet. Tried making one someday but I didn't like it. So that's on pending.

  4. I agree regarding typos. I have to stop myself from going back to posts to correct them further. I do try to edit as much as possible and let things go.

  5. Yeah I couldn't think of anything either! Don't feel bad about the button thing either! I only have one because another blogger offered to make it for me and since I have no tech talent I was more than happy to accept the offer!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  10. I didn't have anything major either, but I remember when starting out, constantly finding typos after I'd already published a post. It was so frustrating and I was constantly kicking myself for it. But, luckily, that was about as bad as my mistakes got. :D Great answer. My FFs are at LKHill or Musings on Fantasia. Happy Friday!

  13. When I made my blog button it took me about a week to figure out how to make it and then another couple days to actually make it.
