Blog Hopping: What is it and How to Get Involved
So, that blogger decided to write a post about a blog hop to help her fellow bloggers understand what it is and how to get involved if it sounds interesting to you!
First, a blog hop is defined as a group of bloggers posting about the same topic, event, set of questions, book, etc. for a set amount of time. It allows readers to hop from blog to blog to find out more about this topic/book, etc. For example, blog A, B, C, D, and E are all blogging about the new Catching Fire movie and giving away a movie poster sometime during the week that the movie comes out. Readers can read each post that week and enter to win any giveaways.
Most of the time with a blog hop, bloggers have to tag a certain amount of bloggers to participate and put links to these people's blogs on their posts.
Does this sound like something you are interested in? How do you get involved?
1. Create your own blog hop and ask bloggers you know to participate.
2. Visit this site, and find a blog hop you can be a part of: http://www.blogaholicnetwork.com/page/general-blog-hops-and-link-ups
3. There's even a Pinterest page about blog hops! http://www.pinterest.com/bethbryan/blog-hops-to-join/
4. Google "Blog Hops"--you will be amazed at all the resources that pop up!
A blog hop is fun, helps you meet new people outside your circle, and hopefully drives traffic to your blog. If you are interested in trying a blog hop, then don't delay. Look for one you can do during December!
