Last Week on Inked Brownies

Feature & Follow Friday #1


The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts: Parajunkee and Alison Can Read .

How does this work?

The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends! Every Friday, they will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas, and pose a question for other participating bloggers to answer. It’s a chance to find some new blogs to visit, and gain some new followers in return. Win/win!

This week’s question is:

If you could take the place of one author, which author would it be and what changes would you make in his/her writing style? – Suggested by NJKinny’s World of Books & Stuff

My answer would be Charles Dickens, because I would have a brilliant imagination and an awesome sense of humour! Plus living in Victorian England in the 19th century seems kinda romantic (I know, SO naive; Dickens’ childhood sucked balls due to poverty). I would probably stay away from the opium though, even though I’m Dutch ^^.
I wouldn’t want to change anything in his writing style. Almost every book I’ve read of him so far is brilliant (apart from a few short stories which felt like one big acid trip…probably works better if you’re reading them in an opiumden).


If you also feel like participating in this Blog Hop, here are the rules for the #FF:

1. Follow the two hosts (this is a requirement)
2. Follow the featured bloggers (also required)
3. Put your blog name and url in the linky thing (you’ll know once you check the post on the hosts’ blogs)
3. Grab the button up here/there and place it in your post. This will give people a place to say ‘hi’ in your comments and let you know that they are following you.
4. 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
5. 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 are a new follower if you don’t say ‘HI’.
6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love…and the followers~!
7. If you’re new to the FF hop, comment on one of the hosts’ blogs and let them know, so they can stop by and check out your blog!

EDIT 6/11: Damnit, I appeared to have forgotten that I’m also posting on a WordPress platform! I don’t have a preference for a specific follow option (yet), so knock yourself out! 🙂

  4. I’ve never read any Charles Dickens. hangs head in shame I’ve read so few classics – it’s something I should work on.

    I think if I were to be an author I would be Neil Gaiman, but only so I could write a sequel to ‘Stardust’!

    • Charles Dickens and Jane Austen sound so cliché, but nothing beats them so far (for me at least) when it comes to sheer awesomeness!

      My first thought was Neil Gaiman as well :D. Then I’d be able to talk myself to sleep for one (love his narrating in audiobooks). I’m ashamed to say I haven’t read Stardust yet, but the movie was great fun!

    • Thank you! And grats on being the Featured blogger this week! 🙂 Followed you on Bloglovin’ and Twitter. You have a wonderful weekend as well!


  6. I just followed your blog back on Bloglovin’, and noticed this post! So I jut HAD to comment, because Dickens is one of my favorite authors! I’ve read four of his books: “A Christmas Carol”, “Oliver Twist”, “A Tale of Two Cities”, and “David Copperfield”. I need to read more!

    Gee, I had no idea he was an opium addict. Guess I need to find out more about his life, especially since I love his writing so much!

    GREAT choice for an author!! : )

    • Haha, GREATness :D. David Copperfield is my favourite so far. I read it when I was 19 or so and just thought it was hilarious most of the time. Unlike other people my age! It’s not confirmed that he was addicted to opium, just a rumour, but you know what they say about Victorian gossiping! (I have no idea tbh, just sounds like a juicy truth to me)


  7. P.S. Just followed you on Twitter, too!! : )
