Feature and Follow #10 - Bloggers I Would Like to Meet

Happy Friday, everyone! :)

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers. But you have to know, the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me. The general the rules are:

•  Follow the Feature and Follow Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
•  Follow the Featured Bloggers
•  Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
•  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 and that they are now following you.
•  Follow Follow Follow as many as you can. 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. Thanks!!

Here’s this week's question: What blogger would you most like to meet in real life? Tell us about him or her.

Since I started blogging, I’ve met so many cool people online. I wish I could list them all, but I can’t, so here are some which I’d love to meet.

1. Robyn @ robgirlbooks. Apart from being a very good supporter of my blog, Robyn is such an awesome person. You only have to read her posts to know that. I love her posts, especially the Think out Loud meme, which comes up every Thursday. Did I also mention that she’s a wonderful writer? Well, I haven’t read any of her books, but I have on my ‘to read’ list. And if you want to read nice books, movies and even a zoo review with good concept, do stop by her blog.

2. Uzoma @ 85degrees. Uzoma is my brother from another mama. He’s a good writer; reading his works inspires me. In fact, his 100-Word stories inspired, my 400-word horror story, The Beach Man. He is such a cool artist and did I mention we beta read for each other? Well, the day I’d meet with him I’m going to buy him a lot of beer for all the good suggestions he’s been making in my WIP.

3. Florentine @ Readiculously peachy. I think it was the sweet title of her blog that got me curious about her. Apart from the title, her blog, in my opinion, has the most beautiful design I’ve ever come across. You can’t help but admire the beautiful layout. Sometimes you even want to lick it, because it looks so delicious. Okay, blog title and design apart, I love her reviews. They’re fun to read, and recently I enjoyed her review of The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa. That review made me get the first book, The Immortal Rules, which I started reading today. And Florentine is a good supporter of my blog.

4. Athina @ Between My Lines. I’d love to sit by the beach with her one day, discussing writing and publishing. Even though I haven’t met her, I can feel her passion about writing, especially in her blog posts about writing, editing, and criticism. Athina seems to me like a headstrong person who’ll never give up until they achieve their goal. And that’s what she’s been doing ever since, seriously working to better her debut novel, DAZED. I hope to read that book one day.

Okay, I think I’ll stop here. There are others I want to meet, like Alison and Parajunkee, so I can say ‘thank you’ for hosting such a wonderful meme.

And thanks to everyone who’s ever stopped by The Creative Forum!

I love you all! :)


  1. Those are all new to me! Might have to go pay them a visit!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Jessica. Sure, you'll enjoy their contents. :)

      Have a wonderful weekend. :)

  2. Ah, Kaykay, you rock! I love what you wrote for each blogger turned friend you'd like to meet. Sheesh, I should have done that (I'm gonna have to go back and do that).

    I haven't started The Immortal Rules yet, but I've read so many good reviews for it, and better ones for the second book. I look forward to yours. I enjoy stopping by Athina's blog too. She's candid and passionate about books and getting her own book ready. I have to check out the others. Thanks so much for including me. I still remember when you first hopped on Goodreads to the blogger lift group, follow for a follow. How fortuitous.

    Have a great weekend, Kaykay!!

    1. Yeah, I think it's fortuitous. I still hop on the blogger lift group sometimes. That's where I discovered Athina's blog too, and then she'd nominated me in a Liebster Blog Award.

      I'm enjoying The Immortal Rules. I've also heard good things about the second book. I hope to read it soon.

      Do have an awesome weekend. :)

  3. Hello again Kaykay,
    Thank you so much for adding me to your list. I didn't had the time to write the FF again, but it will not happen again.
    Your choice to write about each one was really good. I smiled while I was reading it. :)
    Thank you very much for your kind words. If I ever finished editing Dazed I will definitely send it you.
    I'd love to meet you and Robyn too and talk about all that beautiful stuff. Indeed Robys is awesome. I agree. :)
    We'll chat again. I wish you a great weekend.

    1. You're welcome, Athina. I'm glad you like the post. As you know, I wish you the best on DAZED. I can't wait to see you finish it. :)

      Have a great weekend too!

  4. Onye m! You rock! And I've to say straight on that I've learnt a lot from you as we beta our works. It's a privilege to be added to this list of wonderful bloggers. I'd like to check out their blogs too.

    You have a group of friends here too who are also writing their first book.I admire this a lot and know it will also motivate you. Nwanne m, you're good writer too and I can't wait to see you in print.

    1. Thanks a lot, Uzo. I can't wait to see you in print too. :) Yeah, they're all wonderful people, and I'm sure you'll like their content.

      Thanks for stopping by! :)
