Reminder: Great Summer Reads Hop

Just a reminder in case you haven't signed up yet!

Everyone loves a good summer read! So this is your chance to share and giveaway your favorite.
I’m hosting my first ever blog hop so I’m hoping to have lots of participation. For my very first blog hop I have chosen to go with a summer theme. Very unique, right, since we will be in the middle of summer July 9-12th. I just have a few rules to go over. I hope you join!
Great Summer Reads Rules:
1. Must give away a book (digital or paper) or a gift card to let someone pick out their own summer read.
2. Each blog will post their own giveaway.
3. No more than 10 possible entries max and only one max mandatory.
4. Your post must include Great Summer Reads image.
5. Posts can go up one day early (July 8th) but must be up by July 9th by 12 am Mountain Time.
6. Limited to 200 participants in the hop so sign up quick.
7. Must email a link once post is active.

Any questions you can email me at


  1. I'd love to participate Cindy, but I'm new to blogging, and I've never done anything like this before. I don't know what to do. It's a great idea.

    1. It seems complicated, I know, but I promise it's really easy. You just run a blog post on the day of the hop, in this case July 9th. In that post you have some kind of giveaway. Ideas are a gift card for Amazon or B&N or the Book Depository, or if you have a book you'd like to give away you can do that. You can give it away in any way you'd like, such as a Rafflecopter, or just by having people comment and then randomly picking someone. At the bottom of the post you put the linky list (which I send you the code for) and that's what people use to "hop" from one blog to another. It's a great way to get traffic to your blog, especially if you're a new blog. (You can require people follow your blog as an entry for your contest)
