Feature and Follow #5 Featured Blogger




I'm so excited to have myself and Mountain Rhinestones be one of this weeks Featured Bloggers. This blog is featured over at Parajunkee's View and you can jump over there to view my interview answers and Book Yabber is featured over at Alison Can Read and you can go there to view Book Yabber's interview answers.


Feature and Follow is a weekly feature hosted by TWO hosts: Alison from Alison Can Read and Parajunkee from Parajunkee's View. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way they will be able to show off more new blogs. 


Rules:
1.) (REQUIRED) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts
2.) (REQUIRED) Follow the Featured Bloggers
3.) Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to put it in your post.
4.) Grab the button and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say ''hi'' and that they are now following you. 
5.) If you are using Wordpress or another CMS that doesn't have GFC (Google Friend Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed.
6.) 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're a new follower if you don't say ''HI". 
7.) If someone comments and say they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers. 
8.) If you're new to the Follow Friday hop, comment and let the hosts know so they can check out your blog. 



This weeks question:

How did you come up with your blog title and address? Does it have a special meaning for you? -Suggested by The Paperback Princess.

Answer: 

When I first decided to start my blog I spent almost a week looking at the best place for me and ways to start it, along with coming up with a blog title that suited me and my personality. I live in the Appalachian Mountains, and aside from my book and reading obsession, my favorite things to do are spending time out in my huge and beautiful ''back yard'' fishing, hunting, hiking, and riding my 4-wheeler. I absolutely love my mountains and like just about every other girl, I love diamonds, jewels, and rhinestones of all kinds. I set and tried almost every combination of Mountain and jewel names until I found the one that stood out to me. I would say that Mountain Rhinestones has special meaning because it describes parts of me. 

What about your blog title, how did you come up with it and does it hold any special meaning for you. If you don't have a blog, what name would you choose and why if you started one? 





You can choose which ever way is more convenient for you when following Mountain Rhinestones.

This is a Blog Hop!

I couldn't get the Linky Tool to work right so if you click Here, you should be able to get there. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  12. That's a great story! I love that this has deeper meaning for you. A blog is kind of our way of reaching out to people we normally wouldn't meet or talk to, so to include something so personal is very sweet.
