Book Blogger Hop ~ May 14th - 17th.


It's Friday!  Time for another Book Blogger HOP!!

This is for ALL BOOK BLOGGERS (NEW AND OLD) and READERS!  Let's make some new friends and have fun!  It's FRIDAY!!! 
ABOUT THE HOP:
In the spirit of the Friday Follow, Jen thought it would be cool to do a Book Blogger Hop to give us all book bloggers and readers a chance to connect and find new blogs that we may be missing out on!  So, she created this weekly BOOK PARTY where book bloggers and readers can connect to find new blogs to read, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!  So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start PARTYING!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun!  This is a weekly event!

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.

If you start following someone through the Hop, leave a comment on their blog to let them know!  Stop back during the week to see other blogs that are added!  And, most importantly, the idea is to HAVE FUN!!

OPTIONAL TWIST:  
On your blog hop post, tell us about some of the other great blogs you've found while Hopping around!  

DISCLAIMER:
The Hop isn't just for you to throw your link in there and not visit any other blogs.  It's all about networking and finding new blogs that are of interest.  So, in the spirit of the Hop, try to make some time to visit other blogs and don't post your link if you are not planning on visiting other blogs in the Hop that week.  This is a weekly event, so if you don't have time this week, that's fine!  We'll see you next week!

If you sign MckLinky, please share the love and POST ABOUT THE HOP ON YOUR BLOG!  How else will anyone else find out about it and come join the party?

Please use the following format when entering your link below (be careful - Jen doesn't have time to go in and edit your link!!):

NAME OF BLOG (How long you've been blogging; what genres you PRIMARILY review*)
*I know a lot of us read all different genres, but if you had to choose ONE OR TWO genres that you review more often than others, what would they be??

Example:
Crazy-for-Books (21 months; contemporary fiction/mystery)

So, let's do the Hop!

P.S. BEFORE YOU ENTER YOUR LINK - DID YOU READ ALL OF THE RULES AT CRAZY-FOR-BOOKS??  DON'T FORGET TO LIST THE REQUESTED INFORMATION IN YOUR LINK!!!!!
There are some changes to the Hop, so please read this before adding your link! 

Change #1:  From now on, the Hop will Linky will be open each week from Friday through Monday only.  If you miss out, don't fret, there's a new Linky open every Friday!  She thinks this will make it easier on everyone and will give you time to give more quality visits to each book blog!

Change #2:  Jen has noticed some non-book blogs in the Hop.   **sigh**  These links will be deleted. She deleted any links yet, but it looks like she will be forced to.  This Hop is for BOOK REVIEW BLOGS ONLY!  Sorry to sound harsh, but those participating in the Hop are readers looking for book blogs and other book lovers.  She doesn't want anyone to waste their precious time on a site that is not a book review blog.  This creates a lot more work for me, but she will  do what she can to prevent spammers from taking over the Hop.

Change #3:  She will no longer be doing the Linky as a Hop that you can embed in your own post.   It will make it easier for people to follow the rules on adding their link and to make sure that their blog is eligible to be listed in the Hop.

Sorry to take the fun out of your Friday, but hopefully these changes will make the Hop run smoother and easier!  If you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments at Crazy-For-Books!
