Welcome Blog Hoppers!

Welcome readers, new and old!

Some of you might already know that Google Friend Connect, the tool which allows readers to follow blogs, will be disappearing at the end of the month, which means...I need a new way to connect with my readers!

Enter Linky Followers.

Linky Followers is a new tool that allows readers to stay updated on their favorite blogs, serving as a replacement for Google Friend Connect. You'll see a Linky Follower box on the right side of the screen. Click "Follow Me" if you're interested in staying updated on blog activity.


As a way of attracting new readers/Linky Followers, I've joined a Blog Hop party. If you're a blogger yourself, you might consider joining. Read the rules and details below. If you're a reader, check out the blogs listed, you might just find a new favorite!

Want to join in the fun?


1.  You MUST have the LINKY FOLLOWERS tool on your site to participate.
{You can have both the LINKY FOLLOWERS & GFC on your site but you must have the LINKY FOLLOWERS to participate in this party hop.}
2. You MUST follow the person who has the party on their site as a thank you.
3. Just add your blog button to the LINKY PARTY below.
4. Then grab the BLOG HOP code
You will find the code right under the Linky Party where it says CLICK HERE TO ENTER
just under that it says: WHAT IS A BLOG HOP? GET THE CODE HERE
Click on GET THE CODE HERE and enter it into a post on your site.
You can grab the party button code in the FOOTER at Its So Very Cheri
You can grab info from my post if it helps you with your post.
5.  Then you follow other bloggers–(as many as you want)–leave each one of the blogs that you follow a comment letting them know you are following them and ask them to follow you back.
If you want to add the BLOG HOP to your own site you will get lots of new followers(see rule #2)


  1. I found you on blog hop and am a linky follower, I would appreciate the same.

  2. So happy to find your blog through the Linky blog hop. I'm now a follower on Linky. Hope you can come check out my site, Thanks!

  3. Thank you both for following! I'll be stopping by your sites after this comment is posted. :)
