So I was looking at my Bloglovin’ list of blogs I like to read, and it’s looking a bit sparse – so many of the bloggers I used to enjoy reading have stopped writing, and I’d love to find some new blogs to follow.
And I had this idea – sort of along the lines of a chain letter or, as we call it in Blogland, a tag.
The idea is that I will pick two blogs from my reading list, share their link and a brief introduction to the blogger, and ask those two bloggers to do the same in a ‘tag’ post.
Then I (and you, if you like) can follow the tag as it is passed along from blog to blog, and find lovely new blogs to read.
Hopefully this will be beneficial to all – bloggers increase their readership, readers find new blogs to enjoy, and we all get to ‘meet’ some new people in this lovely friendly blogging community we inhabit.
What do you think?
Do you like the idea?
I hope so, because I’m going to start it off right now.
Here are my two recommended reads, both of whom I’ve been following for several years now:
Pamela currently lives in Washington State, USA, but has moved around a lot as her husband is in the US Navy. She has a daughter who has just started college, and Pamela is currently thinking about going back to work after being a ‘lady of leisure’ for many years.
Jenny and her husband have recently moved back to her native Yorkshire from Scotland, into a beautiful apartment with amazing views. They also spend a lot of time in their second home in Italy (the lucky things) and Jenny knits a lot of socks – although she doesn’t wear them, as her preferred footwear is flip flops, as the title of her blog suggests!
So, Jenny and Pamela, I now pass the tag onto you, and look forward to reading your recommended blogs.
How it works:
- Copy the tag logo from the top of this post, if you like.
- Link back to the person who tagged you.
- Write a post recommending two blogs you enjoying reading, and tag your recommended bloggers to do the same.
And on a final note, if any readers who don’t have a blog want to recommend two of their favourite reads in the comments, that would be lovely, too 🙂
