5 Awesome Blog Features

We are in a lull with our Monday content this week, and I had a crazy weekend of chattering on threads so I don’t have anything substantial loaded. But I don’t want to publish just a photo on a Monday, so here are five regular features at other blogs that I just love. And by the way, regular features are very helpful for keeping a blog rolling and developing a regular audience.

Taylor Grace’s “Posts I Loved this Week” is great for finding new blogs to read. It always features excellent blogs, and sometimes my own posts make the list.

Therefore I Geek’s “Around the Web” always includes a collection of geeky and interesting stories from (you guessed it!) around the web.

The Comic-Verse: Awesome Art and & The Top 15 Featured Links” at the Speech Bubble combines a roundup of comics links with high-quality images from Deviant Art. It’s an awesome feature, and our comics posts have landed on the list many times.weekendcoffeeshare

“#WeekendCoffeeShare” is a feature a lot of bloggers do on the weekend. The posts can be about practically anything, and the idea is to write them as though you were having coffee with someone and chatting. Part Time Monster (run by my sister Diana) hosts a weekend link-up for the coffee posts.

You can find “Top Ten Tuesdays” at several blogs, including the always-fabulous Write On! Sisters. It’s sponsored by The Broke and the Bookish, which hosts a weekly link-up for the posts and announces the topics in advance.

Got a favorite feature you try not to miss or one you use for your own blog? Tell us about it on the thread!

Posts I loved this week

I intended to do a roundup of roundup posts this morning, but I ended up at a mechanic shop first thing, and ran out of time. Here’s a roundup you might like. I do my best to check out Taylor’s weekly “Posts I Loved,” because they’re always packed with good stuff, and I often find blogs I’ve never heard of that way. Have a great day!

There were some truly awesome posts this week. Check them out!

My ongoing obsession with Outlander wouldn’t be complete without reading this review and this one. A huge thank you to Penny Dreadful Book Reviews for continuing these lovely posts. Can’t wait for the next one!

If you’re into reviews, check out the blog Natacha Guyot. It’s consistently reviewing movies and has outstanding posts. Check out this one on the movie Maleficent.

If you’re into photographs, the site That Montreal Girl is amazing. Check out this picture of flowers. It took my breath away.

A fantastic post on Banned Books Week to finish it off, I cheered out loud at it. Don’t miss this wonderful post by Winter Bayne.

A huge congrats to Infinitefreetime for releasing Skylights and to Mishka Jenkins for releasing The Magic Spark.

I am supposed to be putting things together for tomorrow, but I just discovered this and it is information that demands to be shared. I have my own wordpress tag. Seriously. Go to your reader and follow “Gene’O.” The reader will take out the caps and the apostrophe, but allow you to see everything I’ve written that’s either tagged with my name or filed in the “By Gene’O” categories at PTM and Sourcerer.

It was Taylor Grace who helped me figure this out. I read this post over there, which was kind of inspired by one I wrote earlier, and if you want to learn something about how to deal with frustration in a healthy way, you should go and read it. I noticed that post was tagged with my first name, so I had to go and take a look.
