HOI Blog Hop #1

Welcome to the Homesteaders of Instagram (HOI) Blog Hop! You have a new reason to look forward to the weekend!

Starts Friday, March 29, 2019, at 12:01 am (PST)

Blog Hops (link party, linky party or link up) are a fun, virtual way to discover new homesteaders and support other like-minded bloggers in the homesteading community.

It’s also a great way to network and boost engagement on your blog posts by visitor comments and shares to other social media channels.

Share, explore and get inspired!

On a particular day/time, you’ll head over to the HOI Blog Hop and SHARE a link to your best blog post(s) (up to 3 each week), then EXPLORE the amazing content other bloggers have shared and get INSPIRED!

When and what time?

The HOI Blog Hop begins every Friday at 12:01 am (PST) and runs through the following Sunday evening.

Basic Blog Hop Etiquette

As a blog hop host, we put a lot of work into providing a platform for our participants to share and grow their readership. Please repay that kindness by following our rules.

  • Be kind. Treat the other hop participants as you would like to be treated – visit their posts and let them know you found them here.
  • Family-friendly posts only.
  • Be original. Only share content and photos you have created or have permission to share.
  • No links to other link-parties, blog hops, giveaways, or posts dedicated to advertising products.
  • Link up to 3 posts a week.
  • You’re welcome to link old posts from your blog, as long as you haven’t linked them to the HOI Blog Hop before.
  • When linking up your post to the HOI Blog Hop, please make sure you actually link to your post and not your homepage.
  • Linking up gives us permission to use your photo on our social media channels in order to promote your post if you are featured.
  • We reserve the right to delete posts that don’t follow these guidelines.

Featured Posts

Each week we take turns choosing three posts to feature. The featured posts will be shared by the host and co-hosts on their social media channels.

For a chance to be featured, link your post back to the HOI Blog Hop. If the hop isn’t linked to your post then you cannot be featured.

This week we are featuring posts from our Co-Hosts!

  1. 79 Uses for Paracord – Midnight Sun Homestead

  1. Going Green? 3 Perks of Helping the Environment – Heritage Acres Market

  2. Raising Chickens (20+ Reasons Why You Should) – City Girl Farming
