Blog Hops at Your Fingertips

by M. J. Joachim

You don’t need to join a blog hop to go hopping through the blogosphere, although I highly recommend them. Simply engage with other bloggers and you’ll find yourself hopping like Little Bunny Foo Foo in no time at all!

How to Engage

Start by making valuable and thoughtful comments on other blogger’s posts.

Follow, follow, follow them…be a true blog collector and gather as many as you can in your treasure chest. Oh, sure, you won’t be able to paste them on a board like Pinterest or anything. You can’t sort them like you do your laundry. But you can accumulate them and read them as time permits, making comments each time you do.

Reciprocation happens automatically. Bloggers are friendly people; they like it when people visit and comment on their blogs and they do the same in turn.

Revisit from past comments you’ve received. This is your unofficial blog hop! Ta dah!

Many bloggers make a point to post regularly. When you revisit from past comments, you remain current with their posts. Then you comment, and they comment and everybody gets to know each other better, keeping up with all things current.

Blog hops at your fingertips – all’s well in the wonderful world of cyberspace!
That’s all for now kind followers.

Until next time, I wish you every good thing,

M. J.

P.S. There’s a very annoying anonymous spammer out there, constantly hitting up the blog hop scene. You may want to block anonymous comments on your blogs, to prevent him from spamming you!
