Blog Hop Saturday! Guidelines


Welcome to Blog Hop Saturday!

Do you have a blog or particular blog topic that you'd like to share? Do you have a Facebook Fan Page that needs a few more "likes"? Are you interested in meeting new people or networking? If so, join me here on the first Saturday of each month beginning May 5th. ***Revised linkup time - see below***  No rules...just a few simple requests:
  • You may add links to your blog(s) AND/OR Facebook Fan Page(s). Inactive blogs (i.e no activity for at least a month), duplicate links, links to adult, drug, spam, illegal/inflammatory content, direct marketing/affiliate sites or work from home sites are not permitted and will be removed. I visit every link, so please don't bother linking up if any of these categories apply to you!
  • Blog Hop Saturday! is all about networking. If you wish to linkup, please include a link back to this blog somewhere in your post or on your blog so others visiting you can find Blog Hop Saturday! too - thoughtsofbeautyinthestillnessofdawn.blogspot.com - you'll also need it to complete the linkup steps.  Alternatively, go ahead and grab the Blog Hop Saturday! button in the right sidebar. It's a great way to share and encourage your friends to join the hop. To grab the button, simply select code, press CTRLC to copy and CTRLV to paste to your blog. To post the actual hop Linky on your blog, just click "Get the Inlinkz Code". That way, anyone visiting you can join Blog Hop Saturday! right from the comfort of your blog! (neat huh?)
  • Do try to visit as many blogs in the Linky as you can. Take your time...you might discover something new. The links will always remain visible even after the hop has closed. Don't forget to comment and let them know you found them through Blog Hop Saturday!
  • Mention Blog Hop Saturday! on Facebook, Google+, Pinterest & .
  • PLEASE BE KIND TO HOPPERS BY TURNING OFF WORD VERIFICATION!

***12/22/2012 UPDATE: BLOG HOP SATURDAY! IS BEING RETIRED. MY SINCERE THANKS TO ALL THE NEW & EXISTING FRIENDS WHO PARTICIPATED. ***

    1. Dear Mary,
      It will be early for me and even earlier for you (lol), but I hope you'll join in. It will be a monthly linkup on the first Saturday of each month...great way to get some attention for your blog too. I have a countdown & will issue reminders closer to the launch. Depending on the number of blogs that actually link up, I may extend the hopping time or change the start time. Thanks for showing an interest.

    1. My dear Nargis,
      How are you feeling?
      You don't have to write for this one if you don't want to. All you need do is link to either your blog or a single blog post (new or old), or you might even prefer to link to your FB an Page to get a few more "likes". Then, visit as many blogs in the link as you can (hop) & follow the ones that appeal to you. You'll have a whole month to do this. May 5th will be all about having fun! (smile)

      The collaboration/writing blog is over at Lovers' Cove. I haven't put up the challenge line yet, but if all goes to plan, Linky should open on May 15th. To enter, just write 1-line/15 words or less BUT your line has to continue on from where the previous person left off...that's the twist in the challenge! Make sure to come early as there will only be 30 places. Am looking forward to your contribution. Take care & see you soon! <3

    3. Dear Ram,
      Thank you for the interest. All you have to do is either link to your whole blog, a particular blog post or a Facebook Fan Page (if you have one). To give everyone a fair chance of linking up, only one link per blogger is permitted. I'm hoping to make this a monthly get-together and depending on the number of entries, I might extend the time for linking up. Thanks again & see you Saturday!

    1. Dear Corinne,
      I hope it will be. I'm sorry you won't be able to join this time, but the event will be repeated again on the first Saturday in June.
      Safe and happy travels. Enjoy your vacation and see you when you return.

    1. Dear Suzy,
      Thanks for the show of support. I had a hard time deciding on the linkup time due to so many different time zones. Maybe I'll extend the start time from 12:00am instead. Hope you can make it!

    1. Dear Nilanjana,
      Yes...Blog Hop Saturday! is my hop that I host every first Saturday of the month. It's meant for friends and readers to linkup, relax and just have fun visiting everyone. In that way, they can discover new friends and blogs that they might not ordinarily be exposed to. Too many times, as individuals in blogland, it's all about me, me, me. I'm a very social person and like interacting with my readers, so this is an ideal setup. I hope you will linkup and have a great time. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
