B is for Blog Hops

It's the A-Z Challenge and this month I'm talking about Blogging tips. Since most of you who visit today are coming from the hop I thought I'd go over a couple of quick blog-hop etiquette tips. Most of these are common sense, but it doesn't hurt to have a refresher.

1. When leaving comments, be sincere. No one likes to see a comment that says "Great Post!" with a website attached. All that says to me is "Please visit my blog, I'm desperate for attention".

2. Don't ask people to follow you back. Once again, this sounds desperate. We all want followers. The best bloggers will noticed you followed and follow you back. Which brings me to my next point.

3. Don't follow without leaving a comment. Sometimes it's hard to find the blogs of people who follow me. I always try to follow back, but there are cases when the blog simply can't be found. I even go as far as to google the usernames of people - I like to share the love THAT much. If you leave a comment, the chances of me finding your blog increase ten fold.

4. Most important, have fun! Blog-hops are about spreading the love to bloggers everywhere. Enjoy it, don't stress yourself out and don't feel like you have to apologize for every mistake you make. We all make mistakes, just do what you can and we'll all end up enjoying the ride right along with you.

What's your favorite thing about Blog hops?
