Blog Hop Announcement!

Update: This blog hop has been cancelled.

Who doesn't feel totally exhausted and worn out the day after Christmas? I know I sure do. The holidays are a ton of work. The last thing I want to have to worry about is a deadline to have a project completed.

During one of my recent thinking moments, this time while doing laundry instead of while in the shower, I came up with a new idea for something to look forward to those days between the big celebration and New Year's Day which will hopefully help make all of our lives a little easier in the coming new year. Now who wouldn't want a bit of that? So.....

I happily announce the 1st Annual Mom Advice Blog Hop!

Yup! A blog hop all about sharing advice with each other, in an effort to help with any struggles you may face and others may have ideas for.

This blog hop will be unlike many others. There will be nothing to make. No supplies to buy. No fancy artistic photos to take, unless you want to of course and you have a great visual to share. You can even write your bit up way in advance, schedule it to post on your day, and then can sit back and relax.

So what will be the focus of this blog hop? Advice, Words of Wisdom, plain and simple, from you Moms (and any Dads that might want to participate too if so I will revise the button). Perhaps you face a unique challenge with your kid (s) and other parents out there would benefit from your experience. Maybe you have found an interesting way to deal with a specific problem. You could have found a wonderful shop to get hard to find items that many others would love to know about.

That is what I would love for you to share with all of the blogging world.

To give you a better understanding of where I am heading with this, on my day I will be talking about my struggles with clothing kids very small for their age. I know that I can't be the only ones with tiny kidlets.  Sometimes it is very difficult to find clothes for them that fit well and I have found a few tried and true things that work for us.

The blog hop will run the 6 days between Christmas and New Year's Day, specifically December 26th - 31st. There will be a maximum of 10 people per day and no more than 3 people total writing about the same topic during the entire blog hop. So there will be 60 bloggers total and possibly more than 20 different topics discussed.

Do you have some wonderful advice that you'd like to share? Email me (address is on my side bar) and sign up now. Be sure to list your full name, your blog address and the topic you'd like to write about. What? You don't have a blog? No problemo! I'm working on adding a place for you to join in the fun too.

Sign ups will remain open until all the slots have been filled. As with any blog event, there are rules (which I am stealing copying borrowing from a dear friend who has already perfected them, I so hope she doesn't mind)

1) All those participating must add the button to their blog once they are accepted until the blog is over (the code is on my sidebar).
2) Your post must be up by Midnight EST on your appointed day.
3) You must turn off your Word Verfication (if you are able) just for your day.
4) You must add the list of your fellow advice gurus to your blog post so everyone can find them easily and we can spread all the great info to everyone.

Who's game?

3 of you added your own colorful comments:

  1. I'm up for it, no idea what I'll share, but I have time to think :-)

  2. Hmmm...., got to think about this one.

  3. I will be watching, LOL, looks like fun!


I enjoy reading each and every comment that you share. And isn't that what it is all about....sharing.
