Weekend Blog Hops!

It's been a while since I've done any "Hopping" so I decided to join a few Weekend Blog Hops! My criteria for following any blog hops is the K.I.S.S. brain is usually running on overload so I will only join blog hops that have very easy to follow instructions and few rules. I like to follow new blogs and leave comments but if I have to remember a bunch of rules then I am a "gonner"! Needless to say any hops I have listed are easy to follow along. If you are new to blog hoping, keep in mind that there is more to "hopping" than just listing your name and link and posting the blog hop button.

If you want a successful hop and your goal is more followers you will have the greatest chances of success by leaving as many comments as you can and make your comments genuine and pertain to the post you are commenting on. Also leave your blog link as part of your signature so you can be found! If it's not readily evident which post I should comment on, always go with the most recent post. Always follow the Hop Host(s) and leave them a comment to let them know you are participating. Good Luck and Happy Hopping!

  1. Your site is so cute, I really love to cook. My grand kids love to come over and help me. I'm always looking for new recipes.

    Following you on friend connect and twitter.

  5. Thanks for the tips...I'm new to this so I needed them. :)

    Following you from the hop...would love a follow back. :)


  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog and I have returned the favor and am now following thru GFC. While I was here I went ahead and followed on Facebook and Twitter. I don't remember if I asked you to follow those also or not but if I didn't I would love a follow on those also. For whatever reason, Facebook and Twitter numbers matter just as much as GFC numbers if you want to do product reviews and I am short on the FB numbers. Any help would be greatly appreciated and if you are already following my blog Facebook, then thank you for that also. Have a great weekend!


  7. Hi KerrieLynn,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
    Came by to return the love and follow back ;)

    xo Have a great weekend!!

  8. I like blog hops with simple rules too. If I have to follow 10 people and do a dance naked while blogging, it's just too much like work to me. :P

    Have an awesome weekend!

  9. Hi. I’m a new follower of your blog from the hop, which is now found on a page on my site that lists more than 200 hops, memes, and photo challenges… some for each day of the week. Check under the header for the link to that page. I’ve also just started a BlogFrog community that focuses on hops, carnivals, memes, and photo challenges. Go to to visit & participate.
    I hope you’ll visit me soon and follow back!

  10. New Google follower from the hop! Stop by and see me too!
