Blogging: L = Link-ups {Blog hops}

Link-ups and blog hops are very popular.

One of the main reasons to have a link-up is to find new blogs to read {that may or may not be similar to yours}!

When hosting link-ups, you have to have plenty of followers and readers, otherwise no one will participate.

Link-ups can be held one day a week {such as on a Friday}, one day a month {such as the first/last day}, or even for a whole month {like the A to Z Challenge}!

When participating in link-ups, it is always nice to visit the other blogs who link-up and comment on their post.  In addition, you could read some of their other posts, and you may even find a new blog that you enjoy reading and want to follow.

Have you ever hosted a link-up?  What are some tips for hosting a successful link-up?

{P.S. - Sorry this post is late - Blame it on Friday the 13th!  I will be posting about my experiences that did happen yesterday.  It was a crazy and busy day for me!}

I really like blog hops, link ups, etc but don't think I'm ready to do my own. :-(
