Day 421 ~ Thursday's Favorite Things Hop!

Today I am taking a break from my 30 Days of Truth for something totally new!!

I am so excited to share with you my FIRST EVER co-hosting of a Blog Hop!!  Woo Hoo!!  No ... really... I am so exited.

First off... for my readers who do not know what a Blog Hop is... well let me enlighten you.  :D Big Smile.  A blog hop is where many bloggers link their site/blog on the hosting blog's site, and then everyone reads one another's blog and leaves a {meaningful} comments behind.  We hop around reading one then another... hence... Blog Hop.  

Us bloggers LOVE comments.  We love hearing what others think about what we've written.  There's only one other thing that a Blogger loves just as much as comments... and that is someone visiting and reading their site.  We do love receiving comments more- at least I do.

Soooooo.... here goes....

I am co-hosting with a great, talented gal... Katherine of Katherine's Corner a blog for sharing.  You all should definitely check it out... this woman truly has a gift!! 
As a side note here... I always get this idea in my head that Katherine should have named her blog Katherine's Korner... corner with a "K"... I don't know.. I just thought it would look kool (wink, wink)
I met Katherine, well nearly a year ago on voiceBoks, a social network for bloggers an awesome social network for bloggers!  This is where Katherine introduced me to Blog Hops....

I have to add here, that sure this has been an amazing journey for me, my blogging these past 421 days and counting.... the best part of it all... was an unknown hidden treasure... and that is that I have met and become "bloggy" friends with so many wonderful, TALENTED, worldly women {and men too}... and I am talking all over the world too!!

My life has been blessed in so many ways from my experience with blogging... 
and here's to you finding your hidden treasures!! 


About the Thursdays Favorite Things Hop, this hop is where you can link your favorite post or write a post about your favorite things and share with old and new followers!
