Blog hops are some of the greatest things I've found blogging so far. They are one of the quickest ways to find a ton of blogs that you might have something in common with.
Confession time: I may have gone a little overboard with the blog hops. Not that joining a bunch of them was a bad idea but I thought "hey, if I follow a ton of blogs they'll all follow back!" Not how it works. There are quite a few lovely ladies who did return the favor! I fear that since my blog is so little still that people come check it out, look at how many people are following, and don't give me a chance.
That's not the main point of this though. I'm just wondering how everyone else out in the blog world deals with this. Do you follow a ton of people through these hops? Do you ever stop following them later because you don't have anything in common? I've found that I can't keep track of the blogs I actually enjoy reading because I have so many on my reading list. But I would love to check out some of the new blogs too!
Being new to blogging, I still don't know a lot. Is there a way to categorize these or am I just out of luck? Help this poor noob out everyone!
In the next few days I'm going to start a new series of posts about blogs that have helped or inspired me in some way. If you have any blogs you love that you think I should check out, feel free to let me know!
