Also on each blog they will give you a link to the next blog. Basically, you just hop from blog to blog and leave a comment. I've found that some of them will come back and post on my blog.

Another way to get blog followers and comments is to take part in the different challenges. I made up a challenge list last night. I'll post a copy here in case your're interested. When you take part in a challenge and post your card on their website, then you can get traffic from that post also.
great idea Maggie...I have been looking at different challenges, but not near as quick to participate as you I have started writing down the ones I like tho and the key words if on SCS... I really have not wandered far from here tho

When you hear about a blog hop, go to the start blog. They will, generally, have a list of all of the blogs in the hop. On some of them, you have to comment on every blog to qualify, but on others, you get a chance for every blog you comment on. Does that make sense?

If you just happen along on a blog, comment (or follow the instructions there) on that one, and then follow the link on there to get to the first blog in the hop. Hop to each of the blogs and comment. The blog hosts really enjoy valuable comments. Be specific about what you like about their project or comment about something personal that they shared when presenting their project. Think about what kind of comments you'd like to get on your projects.

Blog hops are fun. Clear Dollar Stamps has a blog hop every third Sunday of the month. Our next one is February 19th. I hope you get involved and enjoy it.

We're talking about how to get more people to our blogs and also to take part in the Wednesday challenges.

I also have made a spreadsheet of the challenges that I'm following so I can see what's due when and which ones I can combine. And I forgot to check out the SCS ones except for TPT. I did include that one.
The Spreadsheet sounds like a great idea, Maggie. Might be something to consider. Could you email me yours so I could get an idea of how you have laid out?

Strange as it may sound, I don't regret my first marriage. After meeting Bob, I learned the way things were supposed to be, but I learned a lot from that first marriage that helped me be the person I am.

There are no mistakes if you learn from the experience. At least that's what my heroine's Mom tells her in Chapter 2

Also I was told that when you blog hop and make comments on someone's blog to leave your blog address so they can find you and come visit your blog. I have gotten Followers that way.
I could be wrong, but I'm thinking I read where the powers that be here preferred we did not do that as it took traffic away from SCS (bull feathers!) That's why they have the blogging threads.

That said.. onto your other part.
You don't have to put your blog address in on every post. Unless you post as anonymous, your name on the post will automatically become a hyperlink to your blog. All they have to do is click on your name.

okay. I'm caught up for now. I need to go get a pepsi. Yes, NEED is the keyword. I've wanted one for 3 days. I'm caving in hehe

I have my kit stuff cut. Just need to envelope everything and they'll be ready to go out on Monday. I have some things drying for a couple projects so I can move forward with those when get back from the cafe. I'll check in this evening when I'm ready for another break.

Shell, I'll email you the dates Bob goes on the boat so you can start coordinating Flat Jaydin's travel itinerary for the spring/ summer LOL She's going to be a busy little thing.

I wouldn't say that I regret my marriages since I got 2 wonderful DD's out of it. I also learned a lot each time, which is how I was finally able to grow up and be my own person.

Got my errands done and had some lunch. Now I think I'll work a little bit on the Newsletter and announcements. Need to make a couple phone calls.

Hobby Lobby!!! It's on the small side, maybe 12"x18"..it's still in the car, no sense in bringing in more stuff while the house in stuffed in bathrooms & all furniture is on the hardwoods.. It was only $15..not even on sale and I had no coupons, used it on my nestie.

Yes, I saw it after I'd posted. I'm going to see if I can open it now.

That would be super cool! Just let me know.

I have my kit stuff cut. Just need to envelope everything and they'll be ready to go out on Monday. I have some things drying for a couple projects so I can move forward with those when get back from the cafe. I'll check in this evening when I'm ready for another break.

Shell, I'll email you the dates Bob goes on the boat so you can start coordinating Flat Jaydin's travel itinerary for the spring/ summer LOL She's going to be a busy little thing.

Awesome, thanks!!!


I think we're going to make several of them. I know that's cheating a little, but I have a couple of people that want him *right now*. If we make a few, then we can get them out when it's convenient for people and not have to work around one traveling flatzy. LOL!

Okay... I've been up to the cafe and had a pepsi. Didn't do the writing I'd planned on doing as a friend from St. Louis was in so I wound up visiting instead of writing.

I've taken care of the outside critters, squelched the chocolate craving with a Fiber One brownie. Ready to head back to the studio.
