Blog Hop Ettiquette

Blog Hop and Giveaway Hop Etiquette according to me (and most bloggers I know)

Just a friendly reminder for when you are hopping around entering giveaways and joining weekly, daily, or other meme hops, that there is a nice way to show your appreciation to those bloggers who spend their time working hard to make your hop experience pleasant and fun.

Here are some etiquette rules I've come up with:

#1)  If you join a blog hop (daily, weekly, meme), don't expect to only put up your links and receive.  Show some courtesy and give back to the hop host(s). 
Easy things you can do:
* Like (or 1+) the post,
* follow them in all ways possible (GFC, Google+,Twitter, etc),
* comment/post on your blog,
* share on facebook

#2)  Leave the host a comment letting them know what you did!  "Hi, love the linky/hop!  I'm now following you. . . . liked you . . . shared this. . . "

#3) Leave your blog URL so they can return the favor!

#4) PAY ATTENTION!  What kind of hop is it?  Is it facebook? GFC? Twitter?  Make sure to leave the correct URL for the correct Hop!

#5) Read the instructions for the Hop ~ If you are not able to follow ALL the rules, Don't Join!

Bloggers love to receive comments, and love to know that their hard work is appreciated!  So share back, spread some blogger love!

Clicking the 1+ button below this post is a nice way to say "thank you" or "i like this post" or "i agree".  
Spreading the word through Twitter, Facebook, blogging is also nice!


  1. Thank you, and thank you again for writing this post! I've grown weary of hopping, following and leaving comments all over the bloggosphere with little to show for it. I am visiting from World Bloggers Community and following via GFC, Twitter,Networked blogs and added you to my G+ circles. :)
    My blogs are: http://taylorcares.com and http://giavanne.blogspot.com

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog and following! I am returning the favor and love love love this post!!!!

    I don't know how many times I've entered blog hops and see that they want comments and only 1 or 2 have left comments when 20 have entered!

  3. Great post!
