Feature & Follow Friday 10/05/2012

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! 
Q: 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 got into blogging at the urging of some of my friends from Goodreads where I have been posting my reviews since 2009. I also started because several years ago I wrote (2) books that never really went anywhere. I honestly didn't believe it would be so hard to sell them to agents. Before you ask, yes, I still have them in two separate shoe boxes just waiting to see if I can find an editor and perhaps a beneficiary who can help me with self publishing. In the meantime, blogging has become a way to connect with some awesome people, especially here in Florida! It's a way to take away the boredom and mundane of my rather lousy life since losing my job several year ago.

I look forward to hearing your commentary, and please by all means, leave me your links so that I can check out your answers!

Have a great Friday and a fantastic Weekend!

  5. Yeah I want to be published myself some day. ANd it is totally hard to get an agent to look at my book. Kind of depressing, self publishing may be my route next year. I also love reading though so a blog is the perfect outlet to gush about those reads!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!
