Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop #1: Stitching Blahs

Welcome to the first round of Stitching Bloggers here at Stitching the Night Away. I’ve had so many requests to start a blogging-round-robin or “blog hop” of sorts that I finally got it on the to-do list and managed to pull it all together.

The idea here is to pick a topic, sometimes a specific question, everyone will blog about the topic and then come back here and enter a link to their blog post in the link widget on the current post. That way everyone can check out the participating blogs, meet new blog friends, and comment on each other’s work, etcetera. Sound like fun? Great. Let’s get started with this blog hop….

Blog Hop Blogging Prompt:

Have you ever had a case of the “stitching blahs” where you just didn’t want to stitch? Or maybe it was more like you didn’t get to stitch because you were busy and that created a chain reaction sense of the “blahs” and led to even less stitching…. sort of like a case of “the Mondays” that we are all familiar with. How do you handle your stitching blahs and get back into stitching mode?

How To Participate

To participate simply write a blog post on your own blog about the above topic and then at the end include this piece of code to display the link widget.

Including this on each participant’s response makes it easy for readers to “hop” from blog to blog to read about the topic, leave comments, and meet new bloggers.

After you’ve blogged your response just enter the link to your blog post here:
**note** Enter the direct link to your response, not the link to your blog’s homepage. That way blog hoppers will go straight to your response in this edition of the blog hop.

This blog hop’s link widget has been closed.

Use our banner (optional):

Including the banner on your post is optional, but appreciated as it helps identify the post as a blog hop posting and links to the category here on the site so others can click through and participate as well. You can just copy and paste this code to display the banner like I have at the top of this post:

Or if you prefer you can just link to the blog hop post from your response post. Either way, a link is always appreciated 🙂

Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop at STNA will be twice a month, on the 1st and 15th of each month. Be sure you’re on our newsletter list and you’ll get a reminder for each posting.

I look forward to seeing everyone’s responses for this round! Happy blogging and stitching 🙂

  1. 🙁 I have tried several times to get the widget to post on my blog, I finally got it to link here, but it doesn’t show the other blog posts on my blog like I see it doing on other blogs. I also entered my link but it didn’t show…it showed up in the trackbacks somehow.
    Happy Stitching,


  1. […] Oh, I like the idea of this.  I have been reading updates from Stitching The Night Away for a couple of months now (I have the wonderful fabric calculator app on my iPhone…love it and it is so handy to have!) and today I received an email about her starting a blog hop.  The idea is a stitching related question is asked, people blog about it and post to her site a link to your blog then you can read other blogs, hopefully find new followers to your blog, make new bloggy friends… you get the idea.  If you want to participate, here is a link to the directions for joining… Stitching The Night Away’s Blog Hop.
