- followers to friends blog hop 1 -


Welcome to the first Followers to Friends Blog Hop!
 I worked with Sylvia from Sweet pea Sylvie to create Followers to Friend Blog Hop and I am so excited to meet some new bloggers. The Idea behind the name is that we all start as Followers and can end up Friends! 

WHAT IS A BLOG HOP?
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!

RULES:
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. When the Blog Hop expands, the more followers you are likely to get because there will be more people viewing your blog. Makes sense right?

1. Follow the hosts (#1-2) Publicly on GFC
This helps the host expand the Blog Hop, which means more link ups, which means more followers for you. Also, It will help you stay updated on the start of each Blog Hop every week.

WANT US TO FOLLOW BACK?
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!
#3 DRINKCITRA
Expand the blog!

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

5.SHARE THE BUTTON
Any way to get this Blog Hop out there is key to the success of the Blog Hop. 
 MORE LINK UPS=MORE FOLLOWERS
So feel free to post to TWITTER/FACEBOOK/or any other social network!

  4. I plan on doing this down the line but I have too many things on my plate at the moment (2 blogs + YT channel + real Job + hub) to give my full attention to it properly. But I'll be keeping track of it so that I can join when I can.

    Your new template looks awesome by the way! <3

  11. New follower. Added my site, http://www.Strangekitty.ca.

    BTW, GFC is actually discontinued for non-blogger sites :< They suggest putting a G+ badge on your site, which i'm gonna do, but can the original post be updated to reflect that? OR maybe people can also subscribe to RSS. It's not actually possible for me to add GFC :<
