Welcome to Thursday Blog-Hop.
1. Please follow the hosting blog- bassgiraffe’s Thoughts and the STAR blog in spot #2.
2. Please visit as many blogs as possible.
3. If someone visits your blog please visit theirs back, but I know that we don’t like all blogs we visit so don’t feel obligated to follow back if you don’t want.
4. Family friendly blogs only, please.
5. You will need to link to your blog post that has the above blog-hop button. Without a post it makes it harder for people to have a proper place to comment and let you know they stopped by.
I will be featuring one blog from the week before who made a post containing the blog hop button. This is a random draw from here on out. Each week’s STAR spot will be chosen via random.org. If the blog chosen does not have a post containing the hop button I will redraw a name. I hope that made sense. (PLEASE– in order to be the “Star Blog” you HAVE to have the button on your blog post, please make it easy for me to find. I had to re-draw last week 11 times before I found a winner.)
Starting this week I thought it would be fun to get to know the “Star Blogger”, so I asked them a few questions.
1- How long have you been blogging?
I’ve been blogging since September of 2009. I first started Busy Mom’s Tips and just recently started Blogging Hints.
2- What got you started on blogging?
I have a degree in Information Science and a background in website design. I’ve been a WAHM for over 10 years and really wanted to get back into web design. Starting my own website/blog was something I always wanted to do but just never took the plunge. Finally I bit the bullet and started Busy Mom’s Tips and I love every minute of it. In fact, I wish I had more time to devote to blogging and interacting with other bloggers.
3-what is the main focus of your blog?
Blogging Hints main focus is to provide helpful tips to bloggers just starting out. When I started, I had a lot of growing pains. I knew web design but I didn’t know the basics of blogging, how to gain followers and all of the other little things you need to know to help your blog grow. Therefore, I want to share everything I’ve learned along the way and are still learning with other bloggers so that they won’t have to constantly search the Internet looking for answers.
4- Is there anything else you’d like to share with my readers?
I’m always looking for ways to do things better and I’m still learning from seasoned bloggers. If someone has some great advice for bloggers, I would love for them to be a guest blogger on Blogging Hints.
