A Thank You And Weekend Blog Hop Post
July 20, 2012 9:16 PM

   

So lately this blog has received some award nominations and tags from other lovely fellow bloggers. Recently I also realized that it has been quite a while since I participated in a Blog Hop or hosted a Blog Hop here on my blog, which is why I thought I would create this Thank You And Weekend Blog Hop Post.


♥ Thank You! ♥

Now the idea with this post is to thank the lovely bloggers who have chosen to nominate or tag my blog, as well as to open a No Rules Weekend Blog Hop where all bloggers are welcome to add their blog URL - no strings attached. In other words, this is a post all about blogging and blogs. :p

But before I go into further details of how my No Rules Blog Hop will work, (which is very simple) I first want to give a very Special Thank You to the wonderful bloggers who have chosen to nominate or tag my blog in their blog posts.

Thank You So Much to:

- Melody over at GROWING WITH GOD in my GARDEN for nominating me for a Sunshine Award.

- Nikky over at Nikky's strength and weakness for nominating me for a Sunshine Award.

- Petro over at The Seaman Mom for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award.

- JerseyLil over at JerseyLil's 2 Cents for nominating me for a Fabulous Blog Award.

- Aditi over at Life Of An Indian Girl for nominating me for a Fabulous Blog Award.

- Phipay over at Phipay Takes The Stage for Tagging my blog.

- Rujuta over at Being Me And Other Things for Tagging my blog.

- Journey of Life for Tagging my blog.

Now I sincerely hope I have not forgotten anyone, but if I have please let me know so I can include you in the Thank You List above. :-)

Moving on to the the No Rules Weekend Blog Hop. Which I am having in this post instead of nominating or tagging fellow bloggers, which is usually a part of the rules for accepting an award or continue on tagging. So I am not completely following the rules on that one, hehe. Actually I am probably not following the rules there at all... Hm. But I thought that instead of nominating or tagging a few bloggers, I would let everyone who wants to add their blog URL to my Blog Hop do so freely. So hopefully I will be forgiven for not following the rules...

Anyway, in case anyone is unfamiliar with what a Blog Hop is? Here is a short explanation:

A Blog Hop is basically a list where bloggers can add their blog's URL. The main purpose of a Blog Hop is for all bloggers on that list to visit each others blogs, follow, comment, share blog posts in social networks and so on. In other words, a Blog Hop is a way to find blogs as well as to gain visitors, followers and comments to your own blog.

Because I have chosen to have a No Rules Blog Hop, I do not require you to do anything before or after you have added your blog URL here. Like follow this blog, comment or share this post. Though I am of course very grateful if anyone chooses to do so. And should that be the case, I always return follows when it comes to Blog Hops - just leave a comment below if you are a new follower so I can return the favor. I also want to say that over the years I have found that the more active I am in a Blog Hop - the more activity I see on my own blog (just a little tip).

Finally, to add your blog to this Blog Hop simply click on the Add your link button below and fill out the three fields that pop up:

URL: URL to your blog
Name: Title of your blog
Email: Your email address

then simply click Submit link and you are done.

And like I said, this is a No Rules Blog Hop where all bloggers are welcome to join. So Happy Blog Hopping, and Weekend of course! :p

How to join a Blog Hop - Blog Hop
September 15, 2011 1:57 PM



I am having a Blog Hop - No Rules, Open All Weekend! Simply join below. And if you are a new follower here leave me a comment and I will follow back. Easy right? Well, I know I did not have a clue what a Blog Hop was when I first started to see them around on blogs. Therefore I thought I would also give a short explanation of what a basic Blog Hop is in this post.

Although every Blog Hop usually has its own twist. The basics are that a Blog Hop is a list a blogger put on his/her blog where you can add the url to your blog. The main purpose of a Blog Hop is for all bloggers on that list to visit each other, follow, comment and so on. In other words a Blog Hop is a way to find blogs as well as gain visitors, follows and comments to your blog.

Now there are a thousand different ways you can host a Blog Hop on your blog. Many prefer to ask their Blog Hoppers to perhaps follow their blog, mention the Blog Hop in a post or put up their Blog Hop button on your blog before you can join. Which is perfectly fine. I always follow blogs where I join in and I have a Blog Hop Page with buttons to Blog Hops I usually participate in. Although those are No/Few Rules Blog Hops so they do not require you to do this, but because I like them I feel I want to share them.

But the main reasons why I have No Rules Blog Hops om my blog from time to time is because I think it is fun with Blog Hops. And I prefer to keep my Blog Hops simple. Which is why all you need to do in this Blog Hop is to add your blog url to the list below and you have officially joined.

Of course there are ways you can maximize your result of a Blog Hop. I always recommend, and do this whenever I participate in a Blog Hop, to visit other blogs on the list, follow and leave relevant comments on the blogs you like. Because usually you will get what you give in return. I mean most bloggers who join a Blog Hop want then same thing. Visitors, follows and relevant comments on their blog. Which is really what I think a basic Blog Hop is all about.

Also if anyone is curious on how to add a Blog Hop to your blog. It is very simple. Just sign up for free at In Linkz, follow the instructions on how to create and add a Blog Hop code and your are good to go.

Finally, to add your blog to this Blog Hop simply click on the Add your link button below. Fill out the three fields that pop up;

URL: URL to your blog
Name: Title of your blog
Email: Your email address

then simply click Submit link and you are done.

And like I said in the beginning, if you are a new follower here just leave me a comment in the comment section and I will follow back. Thank You for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! :-)

/A.L

My 72 hours No Rules Blog Hop
May 15, 2011 1:53 PM




It was a while ago since I had a No Rules Blog Hop! So I thought I'd open one for 72 hours. As always, because my favourite blog hops are those with few or no rules, this is of course a No Rules Blog Hop. Which means I don't require you to do anything before you link up. And if you are a new follower here on my blog just leave a comment and I'll follow back.

For this blog hop I use the free text link tool by InLinkz. To add your link: simply click on Add your link below. Fill out the three fields and you are done. (The Name field is where you insert the Name of Your Blog.)

I personally find that the more active I am in a Blog Hop, the more activity I see on my blog. So don't be shy to leave relevant comments on blogs you like and/or follow fellow bloggers.

I hope you have fun! :-)

Welcome to join my No Rules Blog Hop

Fridays have become my blog hop day lately, hehe. So I thought I have one myself this weekend. And because my favourite blog hops are those with few or no rules, this is of course a No Rules Blog Hop. Which means that I don't require you to do anything before you link up. But of course the more active you are in a blog hop, the more activity you'll see on your own blog. So don't be shy to leave relevant comments on blogs you like or follow fellow bloggers.

You can also find 9 other few/no rules blog hops on My Blog Hop Page. So I hope you have fun hopping around this weekend. And if you are a new follower here on my blog just leave a comment and I'll follow back. :p

For this blog hop I use the free text link tool by InLinkz. To add your link to my blog hop simply click on Add your link below. Fill out the three fields, click Submit link and you are done. Happy weekend everyone! :-)

My blog hop page
February 25, 2011 5:39 PM



Because I participate in many blog hops, meaning lists on different blogs where you can add your URL, I thought I'd dedicate a page to it. Below you see which blog hops I participate in and you can also leave a comment on this page if you have followed me in some form. It makes it easier for me to return the favor. :-)

These blog hops have few or no rules and open on Fridays. But keep in mind that they have different close dates so don't wait too long to check them out. And to get to each hop simply click on each button and link will open in new window. Have fun! :p

8 blog hops - no rules
February 4, 2011 9:30 PM



I'll keep this short and simple. Here are 8 blog hops, meaning 8 lists on different blogs where you can add your URL. It's not mandatory to do anything in order to add your link. However, I personally recommend following the blogs which host the blog hops, as a thank you to them. And usually if you leave a comment saying that you have followed them, you will get a follow back. I also find that the more active you are in blog hops - the more visitors/followers you'll get. :-)

Keep in mind that these lists have different close dates so don't wait too long to check them out.

Have fun! And I wish you all a lovely weekend! :-p

Six blogs where you can add your link
December 9, 2010 6:13 PM



There are a lot of blog hops and Linky lists out there, and many require you to do a bunch of things before you can add your link. But on these six lovely blogs all you need to do in return is to follow each blog through Google Friend Connect (actually all do not require it, but I think it's a nice thank you to them). And usually if you leave a comment saying that you have followed them, you will get a follow back.

If you want more followers and visits I recommend that you check out some of the blogs on these lists and leave a comment and/or follow the ones you like. Because usually you will get a follow back and visit from them as well.


These are the six blogs where you can add your link. Click on each pic and you will arrive there in a new window.



Lamb Around


Keep in mind that these lists have different close dates so don't wait too long to check them out.

And if you are interested in a follow exchange, just leave a comment here so everyone knows you are up for it. Also if anyone knows of any other lists or blogs where we can add our link, you are welcome to leave a comment with the url.

Happy linking :-)
