I have had either way too much coffee, or I am trying to do too much at one time--probably both, lol.
After surfing and commenting on a ton of different blogs, I just realized that I posted the wrong question for today's #FF-my bad. The question of the week is SUPPOSED TO BE:

Q: Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

I am a HUGE music HOOR and listen to all types, depending on my mood. Right now Avenged Sevenfold owns me. Thanks to the author, Olivia Cunning, I love and adore them. They are my weakness, and listen to them--frequently. The thing that I love is that their style is ever changing. They mainly rock-and do it damn good, I might add--but they can slow it down and it still ROCKS!  Listen to the song, So Far Away--LOVE IT.

If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts: Parajunkee and 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? (1). First you leave your name on the #FF over on Parajunkee's blog page. (2.) Then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post.   (3.) Then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments ~ Leave the comment under their #FF Posting~ You follow them, they follow you. It's a win-win sitch. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature , go to Parajunkee's blog, click on the drop down link above FEATURES at Features and Follow "Hop" to be put on the waiting list.

***NOTE: It is REQUIRED that if you participate in this #FF, you MUST follow the FEATURED HOSTS (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) AND the two

If you’re new to the follow friday hop, comment on Parajunkees Page and let them know, so she can stop by and check out your blog!

Q: The New Year is here — and everyone wants to know your New Years Blogging Resolution! What are you going to try to revise, revamp and redo for 2012 on your blog?

My main goal is to be more organized-and keep up with my blog. I have found several sites that have fallen down on their updates--and I don't want to do that.  However, I am juggling a shit-ton of balls right now...and NOT the good kind (snicker).

I keep a calender by my laptop and write out what is coming up as far as reviews, giveaways, hops, and tours.

I also have been trying to do a little something different every week on my blog. I surf a ton of other book blog sites to see what others are doing ~ but I also want to try to be original in some things. Something that makes my blog a bit unique.

I am not computer savvy; I don't know all the ins and outs of coding in html or other fancy things that are on professionally designed sites. So, I have to get and be creative. 

I am doing this all on my own--but I have found a great many cyber friends out there that have offered feedback and for that I am grateful. 

Please feel free to leave a comment ~ I'd love to hear from you on what you think I should or shouldn't be doing....I want this to be a place where you like to visit!

  1. Hi. I hope you liked A Little Night Magic. I enjoyed it. :)

    New follower from the hop.

    Here's our #FF post

      Thanks for the new follower
      I'll go check out your page-if you noticed, I did a total epic fail this am on my post. I posted the wrong question, lol. I am trying to do too many things at once, I think.
      Thanks for the comment.


    Currently, I listen to them on constant repeat while writing. I completely agree with all that you said about them, but that might be because you're the one who turned me on to them in the first place ;) And I shall forever be in your debt. Their vibe really gets my mojo kicked into gear, and they just might be instrumental while I'm writing a wee bit of smuttilicious as well. *wink*


    1. LOL, C.L.
      Glad to be of service. Please feel free to leave a comment any time, esp. if it's about A7X...they rock mah hoohah!

  3. OOh very nice! I like them too! Although I don't have any of their CDs they've been on some soundtracks I really liked!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

      thanks for the comment:)
      I got hooked on them over a year ago and they still bring a smile to my face when I listen to them. I have all their CD's...would LOVE to see them in concert!

  4. Hey, thanks for the follow over on my blog. I'm a massive fan of Nickleback too, but apparently that's totally 'uncool' according to my 10 year junior brothers. Oh well. Happy Friday.

    1. Kristy~
      LOL--I'm 42--and my kids say that its just 'wrong' for me to love the music that I do. I went to see them back in April of 2010? 2011--And it was the BEST concert I have ever been to.
      Doesn't matter a/b my age--I love to rock!

  5. Hopping through. Never heard of Avenged Sevenfold. I'll have to check them out.
    My Hop

    1. Alison ~
      Thanks for hopping here at my blog, it made me smile :)

    I must say I pounced on this post because I saw the picture of M on the side, and let's face it, he's the sexiest man in the universe and I want to marry him. Anyway, glad to see a fellow A7X fan!! :D

    1. Jessi ~
      Love M Shadows...and Brian...Oops, Sysnnster...the whole band, really :)
      And every time I hear them, I totally think of Olivia Cunning's book--Backstage Pass.


I love getting comments...tell me what you thought of my post!
