Hello friends, happy Sunday! I hope you all had a lovely week. Today I’m thrilled – also a bit nervous…being a book blogger is HARD, guys – to launch the official, real start of the #SFATW party, yay!
If you have absolutely no idea what I’m rambling about, I suggest you check out the master post I wrote about it all right here. Basically, what’s happening here is book bloggers connecting and sharing the love all across the world. This is happening in two parts:
- the blog-hopping party, where bloggers could subscribe to to be featured in this very post,
- the gifts sending, where bloggers can send each other BOOKS and love!
Before heading into this, a fair warning: this blog post is quite long because I am rambling a lot, but also thanks to YOU, all of the participants in the blog hopping party. I am really excited to see how this project SPOKE to you and made you want to participate.
Below you will find two parts: FIRSTLY, the blog-hopping list, filled with FANTASTIC bloggers you should all check out. Obviously if you have the time to do them all, or not. The goal here is to SHARE the love. Costs a couple of minutes of your time and can make someone’s day! Whether you’re on this list or just stopping by, I obviously encourage you to visit these blogs and overall have fun!
SECONDLY, you will find the subscription link to be able to send gifts to another blogger. As a reminder: if you want to send souvenirs to another blogger, you have to be in the blog-hopping list. WHY, you ask? As the subscriptions happen, there will be a little something added next to each bloggers’ name on this very list, and it will look like this : SENDING GIFTS. This way, coming to this list, you will see all of the bloggers you will potentially be paired with, yay! NOT all of the bloggers on this list are going to be subscribing for the gifts-sending part, because they can’t all participate and that’s OKAY – but no reason NOT to share love and comments with them.
