I Am Pleased To Announce That The ‘Walking On Sunshine’ Blog Party Has Now Officially Began

I’ve seen a lot of blog loving happening here on Planet Blog over the last few months, and I thought it about time I threw a party as well, and ask you all to help me spread some blog love this weekend.

Walking On Sunshine Blog PartyI’m going to kick this party off and hope that during the next three days bloggers from all over the world will join me and spread some blog love.

It’s very easy to join in and there is not much involved.  All you have to do is choose a fellow blogger and do what I am about to do below.

I’d like to introduce you to Sally Cronin.  Blog name: Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life.

Sally Cronin

I’ve only been following Sally’s blog for about a month, but she has bowled me over with the support she has given to me, fellow bloggers, and authors.

She re-blogs posts, gives out excellent health and wellbeing advice, interviews authors, promotes book reviews and tells really good jokes (especially parrot ones).  In fact, I am trying to persuade Sally to become a standup comedian and she’s promised that I can be her agent, if she goes ahead with my advice.

I’m spreading the blog love this weekend and am asking you to check out and follow her blog to introduce you and your blog to her, give her a big ‘hello’ and to start enjoying some of her already published posts, as well as those she has yet to publish.

Click the link below and it will take you straight to her “about me” page on her blog.

That’s it.  That is all you need to do.

1. Choose a fellow blogger who you think spreads blog love.

2. Write a short post about them.

3. Entitle your post Walking On Sunshine Blog Hop Party (so others can find your post).

4. Create a pingback to this post, so that the link appears in the comments section, so that other participants can read your post.  Click here for details on how to create a pingback.

5. If you are not sure how to create a pingback, then copy and paste the link to your post in the comments section below (so that other participants can read your post).

You can mention as many bloggers as you want in your post and write as much about them as you want, but try to not make your post too long.  You can also use my Walking On Sunshine Weekend photo in your post if you want to.

Enjoy the party everyone and keep spreading the blog love.

  1. Fabulous bloghop Hugh. I’m with the ‘late’ crowd here. Nonetheless, you picked the perfect blogger to blog about, Sally. I look forward to your next Hop. 🙂


    1. Thank you, Debby.

      Yes I chose Sally, not only because she was a new blogger I had discovered but, because of in the short time I had got to know her and her blog I was overwhelmed with the support she gives so many authors, writers and bloggers. A very worthy first guest of mine.

      I’ll be doing another blog hop party again, so I hope you will be able to join in the next one.

      1. I look forward to it. I know I missed the first one because I am severely behind in reading blog posts. It seems I can’t keep up after returning from vacay. I know many writers don’t get a chance to read blogs more than once or twice a week, so perhaps the next one you will give people like us a good heads up. 🙂


    1. Hi Janice, no the party carried on for a good many days after it officially finished, but welcome to it.

      I’ll be holding another blog hop party in the near future so look out for that one when I announce it on my blog. 🙂


      1. Following your blog. I can’t tell if I became an email follower or if it went into my word press reader. I want to be an email follower. I want to make sure I get apprised of your meet and greets and other posts. Thank you so very much for listing me as an inspirational blogger. I am so touched. I love the feeling of community that you and me and Sally have. It’s becoming one of my favorite things about blogging.


      2. You should get an email from WordPress every time I publish a new post, unless you have turned off the email notification. I published a new post yesterday called “Welcome to the Hotel of Change.” Did you get an email from WordPress notifying you of that post?


  2. Hi,
    A reader of mine just wrote a beautiful comment on how lucky he is to have the support of the blogging community, so I am giving him this link. His name, if he comes over, is Island Traveler.


    1. Well I hope I can entice you to my next blog hop party, Judith. I’ll have to see what I can do.

      I’ll be popping over to visit your blog today, just as soon as I have tucked into my Welsh Sunday breakfast. 🙂
