Around this time last year, after blogging for a few measly months, I was fortunate enough to find the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop hosted by Beth at Plum and June, which was a program led to help new quilt bloggers learn the ropes of quilt blogging, get involved in the online quilting community, and make connections with others in the same situation. After realizing that many of my favorite “big shot” quilt bloggers had participated in previous years, I signed right up. I am SO grateful that I did. Not only did I learn a lot about the nuances and lingo related to quilt blogging, but I made some fabulous connections that have forged into strong friendships in just one year. You may remember that I even met some of them at Quilt Con!
A fabulous team of alumni are hosting this year’s hop, and sign-ups are officially open. I am hoping to be a resource and mentor on the sidelines, since I have a new baby arriving any day now. The talented team of mentors for this year’s hop are: Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl, Stephanie @ Late Night Quilter, Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs, and Terri Ann @ Childlike Fascination.
Here are the details on how to sign up to participate in this year’s 2015 New Quilt Bloggers Blog hop.
