Follow Friday, Book Blogger Hops and Giveaway Reminder!

Exciting times today- I have a day off because it's my mom's birthday HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mom!! 
So I have some more time to get into Follow Friday and the Book Blogger Hop that I wouldn't have normally because of work.
Firstly is the Book Blogger Hop which has become somewhat of a phenom (it get over 300 hoppers a week)and a meme I truly enjoy.The Book Blogger Hop is hosted over at Crazy for Books and this week's question is

Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

I do use a rating system which I quite enjoy. It's different words that I use in everyday life to describe different things. From Meh to Giggity (courtesy of Quagmire a la Family Guy). You can see my full system here. I want to get my blog design changed...a change which I've been going on and on for some time now. When that happens I hope to change my rating system as well. Not that I don't like it, I just feel it's time for a change. I really enjoy them and lurve seeing how different bloggers come up with or have their own rating systems...it's all about getting creative!

I haven't participated in Follow Friday for some time now and well with this being a rare day off...WHY NOT! It's hosted by the ever awesome Parajunkee and to take part in and learn more about Follow Friday click here.


Lastly a reminder about the I HEART Jeremy Giveaway. It's been extended till 28th Sept. Yep that's practically an month's extension. I've had a few requests for the extension to allow everyone the opportunity to fully take part in the giveaway task. So for those of you who didn't know about it before or have know but time hasn't been on your side; you can get well into it now!


Happy Hopping and Following Everyone!

I found you through Parajunkee's hop, and I'm now following. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your blog! :)

I've been thinking about doing a blog make-over too. I've been blogging for half a year now (tomorrow's my 6th monthsary!!!) and all throughout that I've had the same look. I'm not sure what to do with it yet, though!

Have a great weekend!

Passing through on the Hop and Follow...

I like your rating system, much more clever than mine.

I used Zoe at Chic & Sassy to design my blog template. She has some pre-made templates or she can work with you. I thought she was great.
