Trying the Blog Hop for the First Time

Okay, so this is what’s called a “blog hop.”  I’ve never done this before and am not sure I’m doing it correctly. The purpose, I think, is to introduce bloggers with common interests to each other.

For this blog hop, I began at  125 Pages blog.  Please feel free to follow me on WordPress or any of my social media sites.  Those links are available in the side bar.

If I’ve done this properly, then you should be able to see the list of participating bloggers below, and sign up yourself. I think the idea is to follow those on the list, as was the host site at

Like I said, I’m not sure if I’m doing this correctly, so here are the rules that I’ve cut/pasted from 125 Pages blog:

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme that allows book bloggers to interact with each other and find new blogs! It has two hosts, Parajunkeeand Alison Can Read. The rules are…

  • (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
    Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  • Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.
  • If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed.
  • 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”

If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love…and the followers.

  1. I am not doing the hop, but I am visiting some who are. It is nice to see you participating. I actually had The Edge of Nowhere on my post for most anticipated 2016 debuts the other day. Congratulations on your book! I look forward to reading it.


  2. Congratulations on your book. The description has piqued my interest, so I am adding it to my GoodReads TBR. I just started following you on Twitter. My book blog is called Pondering The Prose.

    1. Hi Ardis! Thanks so much! And it’s a pleasure to “meet” you! I’ll go check out your blog as soon as I leave here! I’m actually looking for book bloggers for my blog tour. I don’t know if that would interest you or not, but you should take a look and let me know if it does.


  3. Congrats on your book! Love the cover! New follower on WordPress and Twitter :).
