Grand Hop at Mandy's Escape

I love blog hops. Being relatively new to the world of blogging, blog hops have been a great way for me to meet new bloggers and discover some awesome blogs out there. So I've decided to co-host a GRAND HOP once every month with my great blogging buddy over at The Things We Find Inside.

This GRAND HOP will include a blog hop, a twitter hop and a Facebook fan page hop all in one. We will be looking for two guest hosts every month who will be willing to add the code to their pages on the 'grand' day. If you would like to be considered for the guest host position please leave a comment here. We will ask you to place the code for the hop on a post telling others of the GRAND HOP. Your blog address will be featured in slots 3-4 of the hop. To participate, we will ask ALL who link up to follow the blogs in slots 1-4. The ones who follow this rule will be considered for the following month's guest host position.

As this hop is all about making new online's only fitting we call this hop 'I love my Online Friends'. So...we've decided to host the first Grand Hop on Saturday, the 18th of September.

Come on back to Mandy's Escape or TTWFI to sign up on the link. Hope to see you all on the 18th.


  1. oh my goodness, just finished a great one! I think you would really like it! I did the review this morning, so check it out if you would like to :)

  2. Maybe vampire was not a good reference. They do bite, but if focuses on the blood itself, the symbolism rather. Power in the blood, cleansing with the blood, healing, and the love of Christ through the shedding of His blood. I am glad that it made your TBR list! It is a must read!

  3. That sounds like such fun!

    I am your new follower on Twitter and via Google Friend

    Hope you will visit us at

  4. Just found you on the book blogger hop hosted by Jennifer. I really like your blog. I'm now a new follower. :D {I heart all my online friends too!}
