Blog Tours & Hops

If you have a hop or tour in progress/formation and would like to have it included in my list please email me with the details.  My list focuses primarily on Stampin’Up! but I’m always happy to put other inspiration out there as well.

 

I’ll try to update these posts month by month so you can see what’s on the horizon.

    Details and blog participant info can be found on the Tours official blog found here – http://royalblogtour.blogspot.com/

     

    Some of my favorite bloggers (yours too I bet) are participating in this tour and this tour site is offering interviews with all participants and looks at some of these bloggers favorite projects as well as general info on the tour.  Check out this wonderfully informative site. 

     

    And if any of you are interested in starting your own dedicated tours or blog hops the experienced Directors of this Tour are also now offering their services to others who want to offer a tour but don’t have the tech skills or know how to pull it off. Information on this can also be found on this site. 

     


      

    ( In the interests of full disclosure I should add that I’m not a member of any of these groups so have no personal stake in the offerings or promotions – I just love the concept of these tours and along with many, many others enjoy the inspiration, project info and chance for blog candy on offer on many of the sites).  Besides who really needs to sleep or eat or….. :D

     

    Hugs and blessings – Jean
