Here’s a collection of rules to participate in our blog hops. When you sign up for a hop please know you agree to these details:
Each blogger is responsible for securing their prize and running a giveaway EXCLUSIVELY FOR THESE HOPS!
NO GROUP GIVEAWAYS ALLOWED – THIS MEANS YOU JOIN ANOTHER BLOGGER’S GIVEAWAY TO PROMOTE IN EXCHANGE FOR A LINK, AND YOU LIST IT ON OUR HOP AS YOUR OWN. You will be removed from the event if you fail to secure your prize.
The linky list must be VISIBLE in your post (unless you are self-hosted WordPress), as well as any required information sent via the Google Doc. before the start of the hop. (This includes host links, button, and linky)
COMPLETE giveaway post must be submitted by 11 am ET the day the hop starts (This is 1 HOUR BEFORE the event starts) via the Google Doc. emailed with the hop information, or you WILL BE removed from the linky. I may not check right at 11 am but as long as it is submitted before I check you will stay on the linky.
Our hops start at NOON ET usually on Wednesdays. PLEASE mark the dates in your editorial calendar. I am not your mom, and it is not my responsibility to remind you of our hop schedule.
We are not able to hunt down your link. YOU CAN EMAIL US TO BE ADDED BACK TO THE BOTTOM OF THE LINKY IF YOU ARE REMOVED. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE YOUR POST IS CORRECT, and you are on the linky, NOT OURS!
If you submit your giveaway URL and it does NOT go live at NOON ET the day the hop starts, you will be removed. (See above)
No requirements to post sign ups or sidebar buttons to promote but the more bloggers, the bigger the event, so posting the button or sharing on your social media including Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, and G+ is encouraged!
Sign ups are usually open until the hop starts. And we usually take links a day or two after. The more, the merrier. If a hop has already started just email us to be included, it’s not a big deal.
Cost – As of now our events are free to join (unless you do the VIP option) but may change in the future.
