Feature Follow Friday: Cross-Posting Reviews

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: 

Do you post your reviews anywhere besides your blog? Where else do you post your reviews? - Suggested by Jessica at A Great Reader

This Week's Answer: 

I always post my reviews to Goodreads. I used to always post a review on Goodreads after I finished the book and then I would use that to build off of for writing my longer reviews. Lately however I have been doing it the other way around. It makes my reviews on Goodreads much longer. I should actually get better at cross-posting. In particular I feel like I should post reviews on Audible. I usually listen to one audiobook a month (currently All Fall Down by Ally Carter) and I don't often post reviews there even though I read them. I'll get better at it though.

And what about you? Where else do you post your reviews? Leave me a comment of 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. And speaking of Goodreads. Feel free to friend me there! I love seeing what other people are reading and checking out their comments.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, and a Great Sparkle Season! Happy FF and HAPPY READING!


  1. That's an interesting way to do it! I've always just copied and pasted reviews straight from my blog onto GR. I've never thought about any editing between the two. Old follower :) Enjoy your weekend!

    Here's my F&F!

  2. I'm a goodreads person too! I usually post on my blog first. That's where I write it all out then I crosspost to Goodreads and Amazon. Though I don't format like I probably should on Goodreads. Oh well!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I post to my blog first, and then to Goodreads later! I usually just copy my review straight from the blog :D I'm like Jessica, I should go back and add italic and bold wherever it's needed... but I usually just post straight away! That's one HUGE benefit of Leafmarks - it keeps your formatting. I really need to start back on that site again, I've let it slide so much the past three or four months!

    Hope you have a fab weekend! (Old follower)

  4. Usually, my review will go up on Goodreads first (most esp. if it's an eGalley or an ARC and it hasn't released yet) and then I'll schedule it to go up closer to the release date on the blog. I also make sure that I'm cross-posting to Netgalley and Edelweiss, since those are requested by me and I feel like it's my obligation. :)

    Happy Reading and Hopping Through! :)

  5. Reviews go on my blog first, then NetGalley if I have one of their books. I've gotten behind on Goodreads and need to spend some time over there sorting out my mess.

  6. Goodreads is a great way to keep track of everything you read. It's also the other place where I post aside from my blog.

  9. I mainly post on my blog and Goodreads too. I love being able to keep track of everything on Goodreads. I have so many shelves. Great answer Cassi! Thanks for stopping by my FF post! :D

  10. I post on Goodreads and Amazon. I always write my review on my blog, then copy and paste to the other sites.

  11. I cross post to a lot of different sites, but I think I'm going to cut back to just Goodreads and Amazon. It's just too hard to manage doing more. Old follower :-)
