Writer Wednesday Blog Hop

Okay, I have had enough. I have done enough Blog Hops lately to realize that there is ONE missing factor in all of this.

But wait! Did you just ask what a blog hop was? Okay, a blog hop is basically one day where we all get together and post our blog link, and find other bloggers to follow just like us. I am making one for writers because I know there are a ton out there that I am missing that I want to read. And its a cheap/easy/fun way to promote your blog and get new followers.

So, where are the blog hops for Writers?

I tried googling it, but I couldn't find anything. Although I know there are themed posts we can do, there isn't a simple way of us all getting together one day a week and finding out where all the writers are. And I know you are out there. And damn it, I will find you.

So! That creepy intro aside here's my first blog hop! I'm so excited! (I even have a jumping pumpkin to prove it!)

Wait! Before you go, here are a few "rules" I would like to have in place* --

1) Follow your blog host (Me)
2) Follow three other blogs
3) Leave a (good) comment on their blog (not just "Hi I'm From Writer Wednesday Blog Hop"...leave them something good! Or just do the best you can.
4) (Optional...sort of): Tweet about the blog hop!

*No, technically, there is no Blog Hop Police that you will come find you if you don't follow the rules; we are running on the honor system. I know we're all honest folk, and it makes Blog Hops more fun if you follow the other bloggers.

Side Note: I know many blog hops allow for Guest Hosts, and I am hoping that this becomes popular enough that I can have a guest host. For the next few weeks it will be just me, but if I find it really is popular, I will post something about a guest host.


  1. This is a great idea.

    By the way, I'm happy to swap links with other bloggers on my site.

    Good luck with it all :)

  2. Hi Nicole - thanks again for doing this blog hop! My first one, and so fun to discover new blogs. Will check back later today to see if there are more!

  3. Hello Nicole,
    Thanks for this opportunity to participate. Take care and have a good Wednesday.

  4. I have been overdoing the blogfests lately. Must write novel....I will sign up later when I have more time.

  5. Thank you for introducing me to many blog centered activities (like blog hops) that I didn't know existed. I'm excited about the blog hop - I think this is going to be fun!

  6. Hi Nicole. I've tweeted, Facebooked, and blogged the Hop. Thanks for hosting. I'm looking forward to catching up with the linked writers after work today :-) Peace All!

  7. This is a great idea! I just added my link and I'm going to start hopping! :)

  8. Hi Nicole! I've only recently started doing blog hops and things like that, but I always enjoying finding new blogs to follow and meeting other aspiring and established authors! Thanks for hosting this WW event! I'm going to go do some hopping and I'll see you again next week!

    :-) I've already added my link.


  9. Nicole,
    Good idea.
    My name is there
    c: Fun idea. Now I know what a Blog Hop is. If you need a guest host, you have one right here (points to self)

  10. I'm going to try posting my link again above. It hasn't loaded yet.
    If it doesn't, my blog can be found at:



  11. I am easily confused...so thanks for the clear instructions!

    Looking forward to getting to know another bunch of fun bloggy folks.



  12. Hi.... Thanks for giving me the opportunity to participate. This is another clever idea to get to know other bloggers/writers out there - other than those we normally connect with! Thanks xx

  13. This is a fabulous idea, Nicole!!
    I look forward to getting to know

  14. Love this blog hops, following everyone up there.

  15. Nicole,

    Love the new look of your page! Like the jumping pumpkin (can see you are getting into the spirit)!

    Great idea! I actually do follow a few blogs and do try to leave meaningful comments when I can.

    Take care and look forward to seeing what else you are going to do!

  16. Hey, Nicole, I've joined your blog followers here, since you have come to my Writing Journal and such.

    This is a very good idea. Looks like you've got a nice little group. I'm doing a blog hop all week and so can't participate this coming week. Perhaps another time when I'm not quite so busy.

    Keep the faith, and don't give up,

  17. Great idea Nicole! Love the new look and I totally meant to come and write ya about the award but I got caught up... Time keeps moving even when I don't want it to. Go figure.

    I'm gonna send my writing friends to your blog hop.

    Have a good weekend

  18. Hi, hopping by from the Lots of Lovin’ Weekend Blog Hop. I am your newest GFC follower. I hope that you can stop by www.indianacouponsavings.com and follow me too!! Thanks, Erin

  19. Hi this is Nicole from Colie’s Kitchen I just discovered your blog and wanted to drop by and say hi. I am now a new follower. I would love to have you stop by Colie’s Kitchen if you get a chance. www.colieskitchen.com

  20. *singing*

    I'm hopping...yes indeed, I'm hopping. For you and me, I'm hopping, I'm hopping, that you'll come back to me!


    Fun idea!

  21. I guess i am too late this week, but still following. Great idea, I try and write for humor, but sometimes I can get sappy. I try to keep my posts to around 500 words, and am also trying to drum up interest in my book.

    Cranky old man

  22. What a great idea! This is my first Blog Hop. I promise to support all of you, if you support me too.I'm so excited to find new people.




  23. I have hopped, tweeted, commented & plus 1ned! This is fantastic.

  24. Great idea! Can't wait to meet everybody!


I love comments! The good, the bad, and the ugly, so tell me what you have to say! And if you like what you read (or at least find yourself entertained), follow my blog to read more. Although I'm not always able to respond to comments immediately, I appreciate every one of them.
