It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
- Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
- Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Mad Hatter Reads and The Fiction Conniption.
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
- Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
- Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
- If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
- If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
- If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
For the purposes of this question I'm going to leave out people who I would like to meet for other reasons but just happen to blog such as John Scalzi, George R.R. Martin, Neil Gaiman, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Nicola Griffith, and so on. They all have blogs that are interesting, informative, and fun to read, but their blogging is not why I'd like to meet them. In all of those cases, they are well-known for something other than blogging, and their blog is merely a conduit by which they communicate with the public outside of their "real" work.
With that in mind, I'm going to pick someone who is an author, but who I know primarily through her blogging and other online activities: Julia Rachel Barrett who writes the blog Julia Barrett's World. I know, I sound a little like a broken record because I've referred to her so many times before, but that is because she is just that awesome. Her blog posts are always interesting, and interacting with her online is always enjoyable. In addition to being smart and witty, she is also one of the nicest people you could meet online.And for all these reasons, and more, she is the blogger that I would most like to meet in real life.
