Lovin' The Weekend Blog Hops Week 41: July 13-15, 2012

Welcome to the forty-first weekend of Lovin' the Weekend Blog Hops.

Giveaway Linky is the bottom linky!

First things first:
Don't forget to check out my co-host's blog
Adventures of the Mommy Homemaker

In case you didn't know, I have also started randomly choosing a Featured host each week from the Lovin' The Readers linky. This week I would like to introduce you to Becky from Mozart, Picasso and a Princess.

Here is what she has to say
" I started "Painting With Picasso" as a way to process through our son's special needs.  The name was chosen because "Picasso" would steal crayons, pencils, markers and even Sharpies, and "paint" around the house - beds, cabinets, walls - despite us watching him almost every single moment of every single day.  We started calling him "Picasso" because that was the first artist's name that came to mind and it just kind of stuck.  When I started the blog in March of 2011, I chose "Painting With Picasso" as the site address since that's how we referred to his art.  The blog also includes some stories about our other two children - "Mozart", our oldest who loves music, and our "Princess", our sweet daughter."

Please make sure to stop by and say hi, let them know you are visiting from the Lovin' The Weekend Blog Hops. Don't forget to link up to the Lovin' the Readers Hop if you would like a chance to be a Featured host next week. Please comment with a way to contact you, especially if there is not an obvious way mentioned on your blog. I would love to include a little write up about you and your blog in the next week's Lovin' The Weekend Blog Hop post, including a link to your blog. And you will get to include the linky codes on your blog. Sound fun? I'm looking forward to getting to know my readers better.

Here's how this blog hop works. I would appreciate it if you would follow myself,  my co-host and the Featured Host via GFC. If you no longer have GFC please follow me some other way. After that there are three different linkys you can link to. Whichever one you choose to link to, please grab that button and share it on your blog (the codes are on my sidebar). I'd love it if you could tweet or in some other way share about this blog hop, the more people who know about it, the more potential visitors and new followers of your blog. I'd love to meet some new friends this weekend.  
I have noticed that some people are more interested in just increasing their numbers, while others really want people who appreciate their blog and want to keep up with their posts. So, I decided to create two separate linkys. The third linky is for you to link up your giveaways.

If you are interested in increasing the number of followers to your blog via GFC, Linky Followers, email, Twitter, Facebook or Google+ link up here. I will follow you back if you follow me (just note which one you are linking to):

If you are interested in gaining followers to your blog who will read and comment and truly find an interest in your blog, link up here:

  1. Thanks for hosting kewkew! Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Thanks for hosing the hop, I was off for a couple months for medical stuff and was surprised to see how many hops are gone! :( Thank you again for keeping this going, hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  3. Thanks for hosting! Have a great weekend!

  4. Hi! I am new to your blog hop this weekend. Can't wait to explore all the links and also take a look around your blog. I saw that we have homeschooling in common ~ well actually unschooling for me. I was the same as you mentioned, I started homeschooling my sons thinking I could never unschool. I was wrong! You may find that unschooling begins to make more sense as your girls show you the way...

    Most important thing that unschooling has taught me ~ Trust your child!

    I love that you have a blog hop for readers! I started blogging in January with the hopes of making some real connections with my readers and helping my readers connect with each other. I have found that while I get lots of page views and emails, I don't get much interaction on the site. Any suggestions for me?

    Thank you so much for hosting these blog hops. I hope you are having a lovely weekend with you family!


Thank you for visiting my blog today. I love to read your comments, so please leave me one if you have the time.
