When I started this blog last year, I noticed that a lot of the bigger and popular blogs had their own feature. Something they came up with that was different from other blogs. Like Pabkins Art It Up, or Nosegraze’s Blogging and Coding tips. I thought it was a fun idea, and came up with my Fantasy Creature Friday posts.
I love mythology, and it never feels like fantasy books use more than the standard creature types. So it was fun trying to find books that had lesser-known creatures in them. I don’t tend to get a lot of comments on them, and hardly ever get any links added. But it’s fun for me to come up with a new creature every week and see how many people I can stump!
So basically, for me at least, it’s still a win. There are blogs I follow especially because of their Features, as well as discussions. And there seem to be a lot of unique feature posts out there. I know things like the memes “Waiting on Wednesdays”, or “Stacking the Shelves” are technically features. But I don’t consider them all that unique since it seems like nearly every book blog has some kind of variation on them.
It got me wondering. How many other bloggers have a unique (or mostly unique) feature they run? And what kind of feature is it? Do you do the same sort of thing every week? Every month? How did you decide on your feature? I want to see what kind of fun things you all have come up with! So feel free to link up below, and then tell us about them in the comments.
