One of my favorite things about blogging, and partially what made me realize that I could do it myself was the blog hops. Admittedly, the ones I participate in the most are giveaway hops because those are what I did the most before starting my own book blog. Kathy at I Am A Reader, Not A Writer is a hop rockstar and has contributed so much to the book blogging world. I don't even think I'd have come as far as I have if not for her. I don't know Kathy very well, but I admire her completely.
I've discovered other hop organizers since Kathy - namely O'Dell at Book Twirps and Dani at Refracted Light Reviews, whose New Release Giveaway Hop I participate in every month. These folks really have given me more of an opportunity to share my love of reading and books with a larger audience, and I am so grateful.
If you're a book blogger and have never participated in one of these hops, I highly recommend it. You can scroll down my right sidebar to see which upcoming hops will fit your blog and interests. You won't regret it.
