followers to friends blog party #1


Part of the reason I started blogging was to make some new friends. Plus I love nothing more than discovering a cool new blog! Sherry from I Am Pisces and I have joined forces to make our own Blog Hop to share the blog love. The idea behind this blog hop is that we start out as followers, and end up as friends!


A Blog Hops purpose is to help bloggers network and get new readers/followers for their blog. All you have to do is link up your blog, read the other blogs in the link up list, and follow the ones you like. You can view as many blogs as you'd like and most of the time if you let the site author know that you have followed from the Blog Hop they will return the follow!


There are just a few rules that will help the overall success of Followers to Friends. These rules are to help Followers to Friends expand, to ensure everyone plays fair, and most of all to make some new friends. Woo!

Makes sense right?

1. Follow the hosts (#1-2) publicly on Google Friend Connect

This helps the host expand the Blog Hop and will help you stay updated on the start of each Blog Hop every week.


Just leave a comment with the following:
-The name used to follow us (MUST appear in GFC)
-Your blog/website

2. Follow each co-host!

Every week we will feature some great new blogs for you to follow. Interested in co-hosting? Drop us an email at This weeks host is DRINKCITRA. Welcome!

3. Visit some of the other blogs!

We encourage you to visit the other blogs in the Blog Hop! If you just link up and leave your name you probably won't be as successful with the Blog Hop as you anticipated. So visit some blogs, let them know you followed, and get some follow backs!

4.  Play nice.

Please do not lie to someone saying you have followed them and request a follow back.

5. Share our super fabulous button!

Any way to get this Blog Hop out there is key to the success of the Blog Hop.

Feel free to post to your blog, Twitter, Facebook or any other social network!
