Category Archives: Blog Hops, Linkups & Round Tables

A blog hop or linkup is sort of a virtual meet and greet where you add your blog to a linky list and visit other blogs on that list, sometimes requiring a specific post. A round table is an assembly for discussion. In this case, it will refer to when bloggers post around a common topic. These are the ones that I have participated in.

30 Day Blogging Challenge Round 2: Day 9 Recap

Time flies when you’re having fun. One day I decided to rest before a trip thinking I could knock out my next post when I got back, and here I am two weeks later after trips to Venice, Berlin, and several cities in Switzerland, finally ready to post again. I Read more →

How I Come Up With Blog Ideas

Although most of the days of the 30 day blogging challenge I’m participating in have a task that could fit with any topic, Day 23′s challenge was to write about how I overcome blogger’s block in my niche. I posted my childfree link party (open til January 12th) on Day Read more →

On Christmas Eve/Christmas Morning last year, I made M&M cookies using my Grandma P’s recipe, which I’ll share with you today. One of the things on my 101 in 1001 list, is to “try 100 new recipes” and, while I might have made these before at some point, I can’t Read more →

Blog Every Day in July Days 20, 23, & 24

I recently got to go on a discovery flight. Look at all those knobs and twiddly bits you have to be able to see to fly the plane (and of course the view is one of the main appeals of flying).

I hope you all enjoyed my Spain series. I have some more adventures in Germany to tell you about in upcoming posts, but first I thought I’d take a break and do a few of the prompts I missed from the Blog Every Day in July challenge with Cause Ya Read more →
