Grow Your Blog, Bloghop!

Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Grow Your Blog (or GYB) blog hop! I am so thrilled to be hosting this blog hop with these other lovely ladies.

How has your week been? Do you have any plans for the weekend? What is the Grow Your Blog Hop all about? NETWORKING! Meeting new bloggers, finding new content to follow, building your readership. Why is blog networking great for you? Simply put, it increases readership and traffic to your blog. How do you network? Visit. Comment. Invite. Communicate. These are key to growing your blog


      • Follow your hosts and co-hosts
      • Link up the main page of your blog, not an individual post. You may link up your individual posts to Marvelous Mondays.
      • Visit and follow other bloggers
      • Comment to let them know that you stopped by and how you followed (Email, GFC, Facebook, Bloglovin, etc)
      • Invite them to visit your blog (be sure to leave your blog web address – too many times have i seen bloggers comment and request a visit to their blog without leaving their blog web address)
      • Communicate with them about what you like on their blog. Let them know you are interested in their blog. USE THEIR NAME! A simple “I’m so and so stopping by. I followed you please follow me.” just isn’t going to interest someone into visiting your blog. Sure, you can request a visit to your blog or a follow along but engage in some type of conversation first.
      • Grab a button and promote the party(you can get the button on This Gal Cooks right here.)



All we ask is that you be kind. We welcome differing opinions, but any comments containing personal attacks, sarcasm, etc. will be removed immediately. Keyboard warriors aren’t welcome 🙂 All comments are moderated and may take time to be approved. Anything not pertaining specifically to the content of a post will be removed (including comments about ads).

  • Hi Katie and Forrest. Nice to meet you guys. We just celebrate my babie's birthday this week as well, only my baby just turned 14. Where does the time go? I loved the birthday parties we used to have. This year finds us just relocating to Thailand. I offered to rent Jet Skis, Go elephant riding or take a boat to an island. All Carter wanted to do was get online and play video games with his friends. The days of planning and fussing are over. And there is much sadness in that. Enjoy this time, it flies by. Stopping by from the blog hop. Just followed you via GFC and Facebook.
