Feature & Follow #2

Increase Blog Followers 

Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop aimed at providing exposure for new bloggers and at expanding blog followers. The hop is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read and is a wonderful opportunity for making new friends and sharing your love for books and reading. 

This week's featured blogs are: Thoughts and Pens, and No Bent Spines

Q: Share something you've learned about book blogging or just blogging in general in the last month

Hmm... well The Hottie Harem was rebooted in August so I learned quite a few new things such as how to change the blog's URL in Blogger and how to manipulate the HTML of a blogger template so that it looked the way I wanted.

I'm not 100% sure that the new look is working for me so there might still be changes down the road. I don't want to spend too much money on the blog as its a part time hobby but I think I'd be willing to hand over a few of my hard earned dollars for a nice looking design.

What did you learn this month?


  1. Good answer. Thanks for sharing :)


  2. It really is a good answer!! I know since blogger has changed a bit, I need to re learn some of the HTML stuff.. There is always maintenance to be done.

    But great job on your blog!! I am loving the Hot Series list.. See some of my favorites on it!!

    Thanks for stopping by BR..


  3. You could ask Ishita from omgitsfishy to create a design for you. She did my blog and I love it! But I don't know whether she still designs blogs.

  4. This is a popular answer. I guess we have a lot yet to learn. :)

  7. I've read where a lot of bloggers have just Googled how to use html, and they have created there own blog designs. They look really good. I however could never do that, because I do not have the patience. :)
    happy Friday!

  10. There's quite a few designers that do blog designing part time and they charge as little as $25 and their work isn't too bad either :)
