Bloglovin' Blog Hop!


I am super excited to be co-hosting a Bloglovin' Blog Hop with Jenny from The NY Melrose Family, Cari and Courtnee from Two Sasters, Amy from While Wearing Heels and Pamela from Sew Much Class for the month of May. 

What's Bloglovin' you ask?  It is very similar to Google Reader, in that you can see the beginning of the post and the first picture attached to the post.  You can add blogs to different categories, which is nice.  I also love that there is a Bloglovin' app for iPhone and Android devices...it makes it sooo easy to keep up with my favorite blogs!

***These are the instructions for sign up, so skip to the rules if you already have Bloglovin'***

In order to participate in this hop you need to sign up for Bloglovin’.  Go to Bloglovin'.   Hit the green sign up button in the right hand corner.  Next enter an email address and create your password.  You will get a confirmation eamil that you will need to follow a link back to Bloglovin' to continue the process.  Once you click on the link you will be brought to a page where it says to choose blogs to follow.  You don't need to do this.  Click next in the bottom right hand corner.  The next screen let’s you know about the mobile app so just click next again.  This screen will show that you are not following any blogs.  Click on Account in the upper right hand corner and toggle down to widget.  Choose the widget you want displayed on your page.  Put your url into the search query and it should pull up your site.  Click on your site and it will say display this icon.  The next page should bring you to a screen that has you display it into your layout.   Once you hit publish you’re done!  If you view your blog you should see the icon and now your followers can add you to their Bloglovin’ feed.  Seriously, so simple.  

So let’s get to the blog hop.  This is a party, so make sure to have some fun and mingle.

There’s only a couple of rules:
1.       Please follow your host – The NY Melrose Family

  If you're interested in cohosting next month shoot Jenny an email at russej10@gmail.com.  Alright, so let's have some fun and mingle! I would suggest leaving a comment on someones blog if you follow them via Bloglovin' so they will know to follow back :)
