Feature & Follow Friday #16

Happy Friday, fellow book lovers! Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The goal of Feature & Follow is to meet new bloggers, make friends, and gain readers.

This Week's Question: 

Blogger pet peeves?

  • When I finish an entry, schedule the post date, hit "publish," and, for whatever reason, it posts immediately. Then I have to scramble to delete the post before anyone has a chance to see it.

  • Other bloggers who do not include a link to the book they're writing about somewhere on the page. Then I have to open a new window and search for it. Half the time I forget and then I don't get to add that book to my to-read list.

  • When I've proofread a post a thousand times and then find a super simple error (such as "to" instead of "too") after it's already been published and I feel like this:

  • Other bloggers who add their link to a weekly meme (F&FF, for example) but, when you click on their link, they didn't even make a meme post. This isn't just an advertisement board, guys!

  • Spending an hour commenting on 7,000 blogs and getting 3 comments back. 

  • Realizing after I've commented on said 7,000 blogs that I linked to my "F&F"... but it's WoW. But none of you saw that, right? Bless all the people that use Disqus (which has an edit button).

**Questions for you**
  1. Does anyone actually subscribe to RSS feeds? I'm trying to decide if that's a social media button worth keeping... 
  2. Who uses tumblr in addition to their blog and why? What are the benefits to a tumblr account?
