Blog Hoppin Party for newbies like me!

Hi everyone!
Ok, I'm starting a linky party. But I just can't bring myself to call it a "linky party".  How about a blog hopping party? I'm creative-thinkinged out right now. It's May 8th, and my creativity is spent. So "Blog Hopping Party" it is.  I'm inviting anyone with less than 100 followers either on your blog (if you have one) or TPT (if you don't have a blog) to join up with us and get your blog hoppin'  on.

I'm new to this, so I think to join you just become a follower, leave a comment, and leave your blog button (I personally still haven't figured out how to make one. ):  ) or a link to your blog or store.  I know there are etiquette rules in the  blogging world, and if this breaks any of them, we can just say we're newbies and didn't know any better. It wouldn't be lying. At least for me. Then all of us who join the party will check out the other blogs and become members. Does that sound right? I just realized this sounds a little bit "if-you-send-me-a-recipe/children's book/whatever- I'll send-one-to-the-top-address", but I hope you realize it's not that. It's just those of us who don't have followers trying to meet the others that are in the same boat. And we want to find your stuff on TPT if you have it! We love the pros! We love "The First Grade Parade" and Babbling Abby! We love Amy Lemons! They're awesome! But we want to meet other teachers who are new to this whole experience, and are equally awesome.

So join us! I can't wait to meet you!

  1. Hi Ann!
    I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly - but here is a link to my store:

    2. Thank you so much! Please include me in on your blogging lessons for Samantha :)

    3. Marge, I'm having a hard time following you. I think you need to add a "join this site" widget. Click on design, and then layout, and it should be one of the options to click on. Or try looking it up at ehow.com . I got a lot of answers there. Come back and let me know if it works, and I'll be your first follower!

  2. This is AWESOME!! I am now following your store and blog and I can't wait to follow everyone else!

    I do not have a blog and sometimes I feel like I get left out of things because of it... one day though!

    Here is a link to my TPT store! It's all K-2.

  3. Awesome!! Woohoo! I'm checking out your stores, and Samantha, a blog is pretty easy, but it takes a little playing. I'll help you out this summer if I can remember how I did stuff. Sometimes I just played around with things until I got it to miraculously work. But if you start one this summer, I'll try to help!

      I've been following you for awhile and love your blog. I don't even feel like I should call you Nicole, because your emails always show up as Mrs. Rios, so seeing Nicole seems weird! Thanks for joining us! Thanks for sharing your great ideas with the rest of us!

  24. What a great idea! I'm your newest follower! I am a Wordpress user and recently lost all of my followers when Google took away the friend connect widget for non-blogger blogs. I started a Facebook page to get to know the people who interact with my blog, so I'd love for you all to follow me there! My TPT and TN links are on my sidebar! I can't wait to follow you all! :)

    1. Hey Bethany
      I tried to join your very cute blog but it didn't work for me.. So I sent you an email, but it said "that page can't be found" once I hit send. I hope you check back in with me and let me know if you got the email and how I can join your blog!
      Thanks!

  25. I am your newest follower. This was such a great idea. I found so many blogs and stores with such great stuff on them. I am just getting started too so I don't know a whole lot about it, but I am slowly learning. Thanks for doing this. :)

    P.s. Sorry if I took up your comment feed with posting. I tried to comment on each post and then went and posted on their blogs if they had one. I apologize. I hope I didn't frustrate you.
