The first ever Followers to Friends Blog Hop!

Happy hump day! I have something new to announce this Wednesday! I was invited by Sherry from I Am Pisces and Sylvia from Sweet Pea Sylvie to co-host their first ever Followers To Friends Blog Hop! The idea behind their name, "Followers to Friends", is that we start off as followers and then can eventually become friends! I know I have definitely met wonderful friends through following other blogs and this is a great way to get started! Thank you again, Sherry and Sylvia for having me co-host this special blog hop! 

Welcome to the first Followers to Friends Blog Hop!

WHAT IS A BLOG HOP?
A Blog Hop's purpose is to help bloggers network and get new readers/followers for their blog. All you have to do is link up your blog, read the other blogs in the link up list, and follow the ones you like. You can view as many blogs as you'd like and most of the time, if you let the site author know that you have followed from the Blog Hop, they will return the follow!

RULES:
There are just a few rules that will help the overall success of Followers to Friends. These rules are to help Followers to Friends expand. When the Blog Hop expands, the more followers you are likely to get because there will be more people viewing your blog.
Makes sense right?

1. Follow the hosts (#1-2) Publicly on GFC
This helps the host expand the Blog Hop, which means more link ups, which means more followers for you. Also, It will help you stay updated on the start of each Blog Hop every week.
WANT US TO FOLLOW BACK?
Just leave a comment with the following
-The name used to follow us (MUST appear in GFC)
-Your blog/website

2. Follow each co-host!
#3 DRINKCITRA
Expand the blog!

3. We encourage you to visit the other blogs in the Blog Hop! If you just link up and leave your name you probably won't be as successful with the Blog Hop as you anticipated. So visit some blogs, let them know you followed, and get some follow backs!

4. Please do not lie to someone saying you have followed them and request a follow back. 

5.SHARE THE BUTTON
Any way to get this Blog Hop out there is key to the success of the Blog Hop. 
MORE LINK UPS=MORE FOLLOWERS
 So feel free to post to TWITTER/FACEBOOK/or any other social network!
