Happy Valentine’s Day & Mega Monday Blog Hop

Spread the love

“Practice makes the master. It’s not about learning; it’s about taking action and practicing your art. As an artist, if you practice love, and you keep practicing and practicing, the moment comes when everything you do is an expression of your love.” Don Miguel Ruiz

Happy Valentine's Day & Join the Blog Hop!

When we think about Valentine’s Day, the idea of loved ones, chocolates, flowers and kisses floats in the air and our heads are filled with memories of magical or miserable moments. Do you remember your first Valentine? Your memorable Valentine? Your saddest one? A Valentine’s from 10 years ago? They all count for something and add to our cache of life stories that we carry with us; sometimes as scars, other times as sacred events. Today, I invite you to step out your comfort zone, join our Blog Hop and share a story; we’d all love to read and connect with you. Whatever your back-story, I wish you a very ✿♡✿Happy Valentine’s Day!✿♡✿

As a way to celebrate your writings, your loved ones and you, add your posts to the blue Linkys below and share some blog love with this week’s Mega Blog Hop. Yes mega hop = 2 Linkys. The goal is to motivate each other and help us stay committed to the DailyPost 2011 Challenge. Our Blog Hop is open to all Bloggers everywhere 🙂 Join in! Read on! 🙂



What is a Blog Hop and why join one? It is a popular way to connect with other bloggers & make new friends on a variety of topics, themes, or just for the fun of connecting. It’s a terrific way to meet new people, refresh a post that needs some loving attention and get a few new comments from others in the blogosphere. Thanks again to all of last week’s bloggers for our first successful blog hop! To new friends, your participation will help us all meet bloggers outside of our usual circle. Join in now and share one or even three fantastic parts of your blogging life; your favorite post, your Facebook fan page and your Networked blog. I invite you to add your posts and make some new friends.

How does this work? Every week, we will have a new topic: THIS WEEK’S TOPIC is to add a favorite post you’ve written about something or someone dear to your heart to Linky #1. Thank you Arva for the suggestion. Also, if you add the tag RandomBlog2011 to your post, you will benefit from another wonderful idea/ blog challenge from Classy Rose of WhatsBuggingMeToday; others who use the tag will find you and read/comment on your blog. 🙂

STEPS/RULES: The rules are simple.
♥Add your post to Linky #1,
♥add you fan page/networked blog (if you have one) to Linky #2,
♥leave me a comment or question especially if we haven’t already met,
♥Click on the links above your post & visit as many fellow blogger posts as you wish,
♥comment/like their post, and/or fan their Facebook page/networkedblog,
♥Let them know you’re from our Mega Blog Hop ~ they will return the love
♥and spread the word. 🙂
✿♡✿Thank you All and have a very Happy Valentine’s Day!✿♡✿

What STEPS do we need to take to participate in the Blog Hop? Click on the Blue Linky #1 below, follow the simple steps and add your chosen post to the mini form: Your link, your title and your email and then hit submit. It is safe. Next, click on the links above yours and check out posts from other bloggers. Like/leave them comments. Once you’ve added your post to Linky #1, then fan/follow your fellow bloggers they will do same for you. ✿♡✿ 🙂

If you have a Facebook page and Networked blog, add it below to Blue Linky #2 and follow same steps as above.The Linkys are open from Sunday through Thursday. Feel free to recommend a post topic for next week. As we progress, we’ll add a poll too and we can vote on topics. LINKY TIP: Click on your Facebook fan page and Networked blog without logging into your account that way you’ll get a clean URL without data.

Last week, we started a weekly “Get To Know” feature of a fellow blogger beginning with but not limited to my blog buddies. I send a few quick and helpful questions to the selected blogger. And feature their blog and interests for the day. Other bloggers get to meet you and learn about your world. If you’d love to be featured, leave me a way to contact you. Again, the goal is to motivate each other and help us stay committed to the DailyPost 2011 Challenge. Join in!
✿♡✿Thank you All and have a very Happy Valentine’s Day!✿♡✿

Add your suggestions and Stay tuned for more ways for us to join the conversation!
Positive Motivation Tip: Cherish the ones you love and share some love with new friends… all are expressions that widen the circle of love.

    How do you do it, Eliz? But however you manage, I’m glad you do!
    I meant to have the post you requested to you by today…but that didn’t happen. 🙁 Hopefully, I will be able to do it tomorrow. I have some unexpected dental surgery coming up Wednesday morning, so I’ve been a little distracted by that. 🙁
    Happy happy Valentine’s Day to you also!

    The Blog Hop is great and I’ve joined in this week alongside Classy Rose’s RandomBlog2011. You guys are a real inspiration. Thank you so much for helping to get our words ‘out there’. Where you all find the time to set these things up is beyond me…but I’m so glad you have!

    Happy Valentines Day Eliz! I haven’t been able to join any of the blog hops (mainly because I don’t know how). It’s very uplifting seeing how you are able to connect with a lot of people. Keep it up!
