Feature & Follow #7

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by the The lovely Parajunkee & Alison Can Read

Q: What would you do over if you were to start your blog again from scratch?

A: First off love the question.It really made me think! I've only been blogging for two full months so I don't really have any regrets or any do-overs. The only thing I can think of is maybe knowing how I wanted to write my review.I have changed my format a lot in this short time.It would have been great if I had a basic outline before just thinking I knew are to write a review.I'm still learning maybe five months from now I will read my first reviews and think "what was that". haha

I Still don't know this one but I wish I knew how to do cool things with my blog layout.I love that everyone can use block quotes but I can't, and if I could stop from scratch I would study up on that.(which I'm doing now)

P.S Comment and I will make it to all of your blogs and return the favor
P.P.S think about following me :D I'm pretty cool and I'm on twitter come say hi ,but be warned I tweet a lot :D 


  1. I've changed my review format a lot. Well just how it looks really. But for the last year and half all my reviews have just been rambles. They have no format to them. I am not that organized.

  2. I was just like that when I first started blogging. I would go back in forth with the way I formatted my reviews and they were kind of rambly. I just hope people don't go back and look at my archive and see how horrible they were. And by the way I really, really like your blog layout. It's super cute! :)

  3. OMG! I have the same problem with my reviews, after a few months blogging I started to check out my first reviews and OMG! they suck :) I have to be honest.

    I believe that practice makes the master don't you think?

  4. A great answer! I am completely clueless when it comes to formatting my posts but would also love to know how to use the block quotes etc. I'd even like to know how to do the networking buttons (like your connect with me) - one day ;)

    Have a nice weekend.

  5. I completely agree with your review! I still don't have a review system down that I'm 100% satisfied with. *Shrugs* Learn as you go, right? LOL. And yes, wordpress is a lot better because it's more professional. I've used it before for a professional photography blog.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF :0)

  6. Great answer. It does take time to get good at reviewing, I still really don't have a format, whatever comes out just comes out on the page. lol. I have been blogging for over a year and I still don't really know how to do all that fancy stuff maybe I should study up on it too. Old follower. =] Thanks for sharing and visiting My FF

  7. Hey, blockquotes are easy. Let me know if you want me to help you out ^_^

    I find myself changing the format of my reviews at times, so I think it is a continual process.

  8. I think (*hope*) my reviews are getting better, but I've only been at it for 3 months now so I'm going to cut myself some slack lol. I've changed the layout of our reviews a lot since the beginning. Now I've just been tweaking little things here and there, hopefully I'll be satisfied with it soon lol.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, I'm an old follower, but I did follow you on twitter too :)

  9. Lovely blog you have here! Planning is the best way not to make mistakes. And I think that's what I'm doing now! I'm quite afraid to do a review because I'm afraid that it's bad. But I can say that you can always learn from your mistakes :)

    Followed you on RSS :)

    Happy Friday! My FF

  10. I have also changed my review format. My first reviews were one liners. Now I go more in-depth. Live and learn!

    Here's my Follow Friday. Have a great weekend.

  11. I wouldn't have done anything differently. It's been a great learning experience and I am happy with where I am at!

    Here's my Friday Hops

  13. I'm still trying to figure out some of the blogger widgets (thank god for Google! I'd be up a creek if I had to figure this stuff out without online tutorials).

    I'm an old follower via GFC -- my blog is nickieanderson.blogspot.com

  15. Gawd you've done really well in 2 months, mine is nothing compared haha. I worry about my reviews as well but some books are so hard to chat about!



  16. I'm very satisfied with mine, it takes a little time before you are really liking it.


  17. I've just started my blog and I can't wait for it to grow!(:

    New follower! Care to do the same?(:

  18. Getting widgits is a real trick. And settling on a design. I've changed mine so many times - I call it a work in progress. You have a nice looking blog, so don't panic! I'm a new follower. you can find me at: http://todayinshenaya.blogspot.com

  19. Great answer. I had to learn a few things from trial and error here as well. I used to have my blog on blogger so you can tweet me and I can help with some of the things you need. I had to relearn things for wordpress when I went over. lol But I found that wordpress was a better fit for me.

    Have a Great Friday!
