Feature & Follow Friday #42

A weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee's View

How it Works: 

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!

How does this work? First you visit the blogs of our illustrious hosts and leave your name on the post using using the linky tools, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to Wordpress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don't have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.

This Week's Question: 

Blogger Pet Peeves. (like when I've drafted an entire post, ready to publish it, and I see somewhere I've left out an HTML code... when I didn't even do my post in HTML) - submitted by Take Me Away

This Week's Answer: 

Man, I did not think this would be a difficult question because I'm one of those pessimistic people who always has something to complain about but it kind of is.

I've had some problems in the past with formatting images where they get all messed up in the post despite looking fine when I draft them. And I used to do drafts in Word and then copy and paste them into Blogger and it would be a bitch to then change the fonts, but those aren't problems anymore.

I will say, lately I've been a little sad about the lack of comments. Like I usually get at lease one comment on stuff but my past two reviews have no comments and two of my three most viewed reviews have no comments. I haven't been very good at commenting on other blogs lately so maybe there is a correlation.

***EDIT: My pet peeve is CAPTCHA! I get it, you don't want spam. But seriously those things make it harder to comment and you actually lose comments that way. Just moderate your comments***

How about you? What are your blogger pet peeves? Leave me a comment with your thoughts.

 And remember this is a blog hop so take a look around and if you like what you see give me a follow and leave me a comment so I can follow back. I am indifferent to the manner in which you follow so pick your poison: GFC, Bloglovin, and/or Twitter. I'm also on YouTube now so you can check me out HERE and subscribe! I've been posting videos every Friday!

Thanks for dropping by, Happy FF and HAPPY READING!
