Add your blog hop to the Blog Hop Master List!

If you've been wondering why I haven't posted much in the past few days, it's because I've been busy tinkering! I've been reading tutorials online and trying to figure out how to give my own blog a (small) makeover! I'm not at all proficient with HTML, so it's been a slow process. I made a test blog, though, so hopefully there will be as little "dust" on this page as possible.

Don't worry, it'll still be the same Twee Poppets you know and (I hope) love - just with a few minor changes. I'm working on widening the usable space on the page as a whole, adding a second sidebar over on the right, including space for sponsor ads, perhaps making a few stylistic improvements, and - best of all - adding a...

Blog Hop Master List!

This list will be just for follower-based blog hops - that means that it will include blog hops that specifically focus on increasing followers ONLY. It does not include not those that are meant for posting giveaways, answering questions, sharing photos, writing to a certain theme, etc. Those types of blog hops are fun, too, but this particular list is for follower-based hops only.

This list may include blog hops that focus on getting followers of any type (blog followers/Google Friend Connect, Twitter, Facebook, Networked Blogs, email subscribers, RSS feed subscribers, etc.).

If you would like your blog hop added to the list, please email me with the following information:
  • Name of the blog hop
  • Which blog(s) host it
  • Direct link to the blog hop
  • Which day(s) it runs
  • What time the linky opens and closes (include time zone)
  • Which type of followers it aims to increase (blog followers/Google Friend Connect, Twitter, Facebook, Networked Blogs, email subscribers, RSS feed subscribers, etc.). Please remember that this list is ONLY for blog hops that are geared toward increasing followers!
  • The code for your blog hop's button, if you have one. (I'm not entirely sure if I'll include these in the Blog Hop Master List or not yet, though.)
  • Any other pertinent information
Please feel free to pass this info along to any blog hop host(ess) you know, as I would love to make this a completely comprehensive list! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me (!

I'm so new to this I don't know the difference between my blog and a blog hop. I'd like more followers but I also post every other day about stuff I'm (and hopefully others) are interested in. Will you help me understand what the difference is?

Ashley Sisk said...

This would be so helpful because there are so many out there that I often lose track. I look forward to seeing your new look!

@ Miss Kat - a blog hop is something like Facebook Like You Back or Friday Follow. It's just a list of participating blogs...usually hosted every week on a Mr. Linky or InLinkz.

Simply Stacie said...

I don't have direct links to mine. I file them under Blogger Resources. Can I still add mine in?

Twee Poppets said...

Miss Kat - Lindsay explained it really well. A blog hop is a bit different than just a blog. It's where a bunch of bloggers come together and enter their blogs into a big list, then everyone can visit other blogs from that list. If you'd like to see a good example, take a look at my Tuesday Tag-Along blog hop (and feel free to join in this Tuesday!):

Ashley - Thanks! I can't wait to add in the new changes! I think the list of blog hops will be really helpful, too, because I have the same problem.

Stacie - Of course! You have some of my favorite blog hops! We can just use either a link to your main site or a link to the label you file them under. Whichever works best for you. :)

there's a 'feel good' energy to twee poppets, and that particular logo is good. everywhere i go i see it, and it catches my eye. makes the internet feel less large, and more like a community.

anyway. if you need any help with your blog let me know. i do graphics, and customization. i have a bloglift special for moms. can do a makeover quick! can check it out here...

keep up the great work!!!

Hi, I was recommended to add my blog hop to your list by Java over at Never Growing Old. The intent is for everyone to increase followers, but I did ask for a really broad range of topics to post, so it is not just one theme....ANYbody can post on it. Please visit me to review and hopefully accept my blog hop at "La Bella Vita"

Thanks so much! Roz

Hi there...

Thanks for all your hard work in coordinating Tag-Along Tuesdays. I'm just getting started with it and I can tell it's going to be great!

Hi Twee,
Your Tag-Along Tuesday badge is beautiful. I will add a badge once I create one for a specific Hop. I like your Tuesday hop and have added it to the group list I created for the same reason.
Thank you,

I really like Friday Fragments @
The link is usually up Thursday around 11:00 and throughout the weekend.

Christy, said...

keeping the hop open through the weekend is a great idea. I may start doing that. ;)

Such a great idea!!
The Blog hop that I run is called
We keep it PG-PG13. That way whomever links up can keep it as clean or as bad as they want.
It runs on Wednesday. Opens at Tuesday night 8 pm west coast time. Closes Thursday at Midnight west coast time.
It increases blog followers.
I have 5 co-hostesses:

The link to the blog hop:

Blog Hop Button, it won't let me post it here in the comments so this is the link to it

We ask everyone who links up to write a post with our button confessing 3 naughty things they have done. Anything from feeding the kids cookies for breakfast to sleeping around on your spouse. Instead or with, They can also answer 5 questions that we ask each week.
This blog hop is kept friendly for all!
