What's a Blog Hop? Meet New Writers & A Chance to Win a Free Kindle!

Not a Bunny Hop, but Blog Hop


Collin Kelley is participating in a Friday the 13th blog hop today.
What a fantastic idea!

Basically, what you do is you go from writer's blog to writer's blog until you get to the end when you have a chance to enter to win a Kindle among other prizes.

The fiction authors sure get things done!

Here's what I liked about it:

1)  You get to "meet" new authors and learn about their books.

2)  Authors get a chance to increase their readership and have more people connect with them through their books and blog.

3)  It's rewarding-- both in clicking through the links, then finishing and being able to enter to win a Kindle

4)  It's fun and was set up on a very memorable day-- Friday the 13th!

5)  Each author had his/her own style, but you could see how this blog hop was all connected.

6) Everyone did it correctly-- the concern with such a big blog hop is that one person doesn't link up correctly or forgets to do their post, then it would be a not-so-happy mess (but it wasn't).

7)  I think it's a win/win for readers and authors.


Poets should do something like for poetry month to learn about new poets.

Anyway, a great idea!

I'd participate in something like that....

And you're right, it does sound like fun.

Thanks for the shout out, KRA. :) It really is a lot of fun. I've had over 800 views on that post today.

I love the idea of a poetry blog hop, and I'd love to participate! Maybe instead of April 1, do it on March 31, to launch (hop?) into National Poetry Month, where each poet could showcase their work and tell what they're planning for National Poetry Month.
