The Train Is Coming!

mingle mondays button

I found another hop I want to join. I'm starting to love the hops more and more. So today's hop is called Mingle Monday! It is hosted by KdBuggie Boutique and I found it through a blog I already follow called Chubby Cheeks Thinks. She does lots of reviews and giveaways. You should check her out.

Tomorrow is the Tuesday Train. We've been gaining steam for the last couple of weeks and last week was totally tremendous! I know I said there weren't really any rules, but there are a couple that we're throwing in. There are reasons for these and I will explain before anyone has a conniption fit. We are ONLY looking out for your welfare. So deal with it.

First of all, you must use the Tuesday Train button on your post for that day. If you don't, other bloggers will not know what you are doing and will defeat the purpose of the hop. We all want more followers and this is the way to get them.

Second of all, it is common courtesy to at least follow the hostesses of the hop. Hops are designed to help other bloggers gain followers and be introduced to bloggers who may become your best friend. So for that reason, We are requiring that you follow the hostesses and the blog before and after your entry. That is a total of 4 each week. This will also help you gain followers. I know am more likely to follow another if they are willing to follow me.

Please also remember that we do not require a specific post. What I mean by this is I want to know what your blog is about in its totality. Some of you do giveaways and reviews but also throw in personal stories. If I click on your link and I only see a post that has all the hops you are joining for the day, I have no idea what you do on your blog. Some hops are better off doing it that way if it is a specific type of hop. This one is designed to learn more about our fellow bloggers in their daily blogging lives.

So please come with us and have some fun acting like frogs. We have also increased in participation every week and I am so ecstatic over that. Let's keep building. I know I want to meet some new buds. The button can be found on my sidebar and my co-host's blog, This Little Family. Come on! What do you have to lose? Oh yeah, nothing!!! You might actually gain a few followers.
