Fab Friday-Week One

Hello and welcome to Fab Friday. What is Fab Friday? Well, its a day when I feature a blog that I love. If you'd like involved please feel free to email me and I'll visit your blog, then email you some questions!

This week I'd like to welcome Laina of http://lainahastoomuchsparetime.blogspot.com Just don't expect her to know the link off the top of her head. She told me she cant remember it to save her life.

I also wanted to know how and why she started this blog. She told me "I actually explained this in my first review, and the story still amuses me. I started it because a friend of mine said I should start a book blog because she loved my reviews. Proving I was a genius, I said, "But they aren't reviews, they're just what I think of the books I've read." But that'd put the idea in my head, and I decided one day, when I was extremely bored, to start one. " That actually is an interesting story, much better then my own.

Twelve people subscribe to her blog, she thinks that's pretty cool.

Her advice for new bloggers, "... ask other bloggers questions. Read lots and lots of different blogs to get an idea of what you want to do, what you like or don't like in a blog. Ask to do link exchanges, offer to do guest blogs, talk on people's chatboxes, put it in your signature if you're on a site like Book Divas, and, oh, I once read that you should never go more than a week between blog posts. Now, I know I'm sometimes guilty of putting reviews off, so a really good tip is to write some reviews in advance and save them. That'll save you if you're in a pinch, trust me."

Her favorite review she has written is "...the very first one I did, which was The Silver Kiss. It amuses me and I looooved that book." I asked her for a snippet and this is what we got, "A snippet of that review? Okay... how about the beginning. "*Ahem. Please excuse me for a moment. I'm about to lose all dignity.
OH MY GOD!! THIS WAS AMAZING!! ABSOLUTELY FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!!
*Okay, I'm done. I'm back. I have (some) dignity again. I'm good. That amuses me."
I just think that is too funny!


Well Laina, I must say your blog will always have my vote! Great job and keep up the good work!
So who's next?!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
