Linky Followers Blog Hop

I’m not usually one to jump on the bandwagon and forward things or write up a special post for someones link party or what have you…however, this one feels kinda important. As many of you have heard Google Friend Connect will be going away for non Blogger blogs at the end of this month, and in the future they may discontinue it for everyone. This is pretty crappy…I follow all the blogs I read through GFC so I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do. Plus I really like seeing all 445 of your smiling faces on my sidebar and worked pretty hard to get ya’ll there. I don’t plan on being a Blogger blog forever, so even if GFC sticks around I’ll eventually lose you. So thank goodness an alternative has come….LINKY FOLLOWERS. This widget has only been around for something like six days but already has almost 2400 blogs registered. So go HERE and sign up (no, you don’t have to have a blog to use this service).  Then click ‘Follow Me’ on the widget and your all set!

Do it now because I don’t want to lose you…and let’s face it, you need me too :) You can also keep up through RSS feed, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest….I don’t make it hard! The buttons for all these things are on my sidebar.
(Oh, also if you wouldn’t mind heading over HERE and voting for my pantry (#91) and/or table (#92) that would be awesome…I’m totally losing!)
So if you have a blog and want to participate in the hop, here are the rules…(and if you don’t have a blog, then it’s just a fun list of new blogs to read!)

1. you MUST have the LINKY FOLLOWERS tool on your site to participate.

{You can have both the LINKY FOLLOWERS & GFC on your site but you must have the LINKY FOLLOWERS to participate in this party hop.}
2. You MUST follow the person who has the party on their site as a thank you.
3.Just add your blog button to the LINKY PARTY below.

4.Then grab the BLOG HOP code

You will find the code right under the Linky Party where it says CLICK HERE TO ENTER
just under that it says: WHAT IS A BLOG HOP? GET THE CODE HERE 
Click on GET THE CODE HERE and enter it into a post on your site.
You can grab the party button code in the FOOTER at Its So Very Cheri
You can grab info from my post if it helps you with your post.

5. Then you follow other bloggers–(as many as you want)
–leave each one of the blogs that you follow a comment letting them know you are following them and ask them to follow you back.

If you want to add the BLOG HOP to your own site you will get lots of new followers(see rule #2)

  11. Just stopping by from the Linky Party Blog Hop. I hope you will visit and follow back.

  12. Gen, once you register your blog go to your dashboard. There is a little box to the left of your thumbnail called 'Quick Widget'. Click on 'get widget' inside that box. It will bring you to a drop down box, choose your blog and click 'get code'. Copy and paste that code into an HTML box on your blogger layout just like you do any button. Hope that helps!

  13. Cameron, I agree! I hope this is the end of it.
