Blog hops and link parties – blogging tips

May 22, 2014


Blogging is not just about showing your pretty frocks, it is also about sharing and communicating with others and creating a community with other fellow bloggers – you will not only meet new people and make new friends but also gain more visibility for your blog.

Knowing this, it is important to participate and contribute, and a great way of doing this is by organizing or joining link-ups for other bloggers. As there are more and more of these available, I started losing track of all of them. I am sure I am not alone in this so here is a little list I compiled of a few bloghops and link-ups anyone can join. Some will have a theme and be quite flexible, others a bit more specific. Regardless, I am sure you will find a few you can join in and have fun! So get sharing!

Shoe Shine Tuesday Ephemera – every other Saturday of every month – share the shoes that make you shine.

Hat Attack –  The Style Crone – 1st of each month – share your headgear , hats scarves, or anything else you adorn your pretty head with.

    Sara. You are the most generous and organized and adorable little blogger EVER! Thank you so much. I don’t join in to these things very often, even though I want to, because I simply cannot get my s#*t together. This will certainly help.
