Welcome to my weekly Clever Chicks Blog Hop! You’re invited to enter the giveaway, hop from one fantastic blog article to another and share links from your blog (if you have one)!
The 4 Ss of attending a Blog Hop/Link Party
A Blog Hop/Link party is essentially a pot-luck gathering where everyone brings a little something to share. Whether as a blogger linking up a blog post, the party host or a visitor, everyone is enriched for being a part of it and there are a few niceties that can make the party even better for everyone.
Show it off. Don’t be shy, link up your stuff! The more party guests, the merrier!
Share it. Link back to the host’s blog on yours somewhere, preferably in the sidebar or post itself. Either use a party button code if provided, or the link to the host’s post.
Shop it- Notice the sponsors and advertisers in a blogger’s sidebar. Chances are, they financially support that blogger, allowing them to be able to write their blog. So if you appreciate the author’s work, click on ads that interest you and patronize the sponsors’ sites!
Shmooze it up. Leave a comment for the party host if you’d like, then visit other blogs in the party- you never know when you’re going to find new, favorite blogs!
WHAT IS A BLOG HOP?
A blog hop, also known as a linky party or linkup, is a gathering of blog authors who share links to their articles on the host’s blog. The articles appear as a collection of thumbnail images & clicking on them brings you to the author’s blog. Blog Hops are a great way to network with other bloggers, gain exposure to new readers and discover blogs and ideas you may not have stumbled upon otherwise. No invitation is necessary to attend! Link up and have fun mingling!
