Welcome to Lovin' The Weekend Blog Hops with your co-hosts:
Karen from Tots and Me, Maria from Adventures of the Mommy Homemaker and Rena from An Ordinary Housewife.
Thank you to every one who has stopped by, whether this is your first visit or you have been a faithful ongoing participant!
We would love for you to stop by each of the co-hosts and follow us, then feel free to add your links to any or all of the following linkies.
We also randomly choose a Featured host each week from the Lovin' The Readers linky. This week we are featuring John from Java John Z's.
Here's what he has to say:
"I'm a software engineer by day and a sweepstaker and couponer by night. I've authored several books related to Java technology, hence the blog name of Java John Z. I started blogging just last December (2012). I had always toyed with starting a blog and the triggering point was literally when I hit the 2,000 follower limit on Twitter and couldn't follow any more. I liked getting the extra entries in the giveaways so followed nearly everybody, except insurance agents. I'm still finding the right niche for my blog. It definitely has a Boston slant on things, from local giveaways to area happenings. I tend to have a ton of blogger opportunities posted as I'm just growing an audience and welcome the exposure they bring. I really don't sign up for all that I run across. And, I'm not afraid to tackle technology-related topics. (One of my most popular postings not related to a giveaway is instructions on how to cancel your NFL mobile subscription.) I've been toying with a series of posts with tips for bloggers, like article pagination and linking in Rafflecopter, but haven't started that yet."
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. We 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? We're looking forward to getting to know our readers better.
Here's how this blog hop works. We would appreciate it if you would follow Tots and Me, Adventures of a Mommy Homemaker and An Ordinary Housewife then please head on over to our Featured Host and follow as well. If you no longer have GFC please follow in some other way. After that there are three different linkies 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 Tot's and Me's sidebar). We'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. We'd love to meet some new friends this weekend.
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, there are two separate linkies. 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. We will follow you back if you follow us (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:
If you have family friendly giveaways to link up, here's your spot. Please make sure to include an end date for your giveaway.
We are so glad you stopped by. Please leave a comment if you link up and we will be sure to stop by and follow back.
