Feature and Follow Friday #34: FREE AT LAST!!!

★the Changes:☆
  • Weekly Features will be chosen from LIKES on the linkylist and not as random.
  • Bloggers and Authors will get to have ONE spot a quarter (90 days) as the feature. But, you can still participate.
  • The reason we are switching to this method is because we had issues with contacting people. This way we just choose them.
  • We have also switched to THUMBNAIL link list – use a graphic that you want us to use when we showcase you as the feature.
  • Weekly questions have been changed to Post Prompts. Very similar just a little more open ended.
  • We are asking for ideas submitted by participants.
  • We will have the post schedule available so you can schedule in advance.


  • The goal is to increase blog followers, make friends and have something to post.
  • You create your own post using the post prompt.
  • You leave your link and thumbnail in the linky list that links back to your post prompt.
  • Once you have your post up and linked, visit other posts and tell them hi. The point is to FOLLOW them not just comment.
  • If you see a post that just hit it to the moon, or just want to show appreciation to a fellow blogger friend, like their name on the linky list to show some appreciation.
  • The person with the most likes gets chosen as the next Feature (you can be chosen every 90 days unless we are in need of features)
  • It is required that if you participate that you have to follow the FEATURE. It is a big no-no to participate and ignore the feature. They are the special snowflake in this little blizzard.
  • As a participant it is up to your discretion on how you want people to follow. Please post RSS, GFC etc if you have a follow of choice.

specific rules

  • 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.
  • If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followedFollow 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

What's been going on?

hello everyone!  So, i've noticed that you've seen the title of this post.  well, let me tell you what happened. i was just "let go" from my job at dollar general and even though this should upset me, i have to tell you the truth:
i'm not upset about this at all!!! :D
i was just so unhappy at this job and the fact that they "let me go" was probably the happiest moment of my life! when i was working at dollar general, i was undergoing a lot of stress and my health was suffering for it. so, now that i no longer work at dollar general, i can actually get my health back on track and i can also start looking for a job that i really like. i've always wanted to work at the library or do a job that deals with data entry or business and i've already started sending job applications while i was working at dollar general, so hopefully i'll get some call backs in the near future.
Wish me luck!!!

THE POST prompt:

Bookstagram Challenge: Fall Color Books Photo

My answer

Great challenge! Here's my lovely fall photo!


  1. That's great news! I can totally understand about being unhappy about where you're working. It's scary to leave a job without one waiting, but if the job was making you that unhappy, then yeah, leaving is for the best! I wish you luck in your job search!

    And of course, pretty picture!!

    Here's my Follow Friday

  2. I didn't have any Fall Themed covers myself. So I found a pic of a book I read a while back on my kindle.

  3. Can totally relate to the that should be sad/upset but not feeling. I recently just left my last job, NO REGRETS GIRL. It started effecting my health and the stress just wasn't worth it. You seriously have to think of yourself, and put you first especially when it starts effecting your health, mental or physical!

    Great list of books. I ALMOST added The Secret Life of Bees to my list as well!

    Here's my Follow Friday.

    1. Thanks! I mean, I know I need the money from the job, but if the job was giving me so much trouble, then it's not worth it sticking around. I really need to read the Secret Life of Bees soon!
