Periodically, I’ve been trying something new on the blog: a blog hop, which I’m calling Come to the Table.

When I started this blog link up, I was hoping to create a place where blogs would receive more visibility. I encouraged you to visit your link up neighbors and make new friends. But visiting around to your neighbors takes time.

So I’m now trying a ONCE A MONTH hop. I’ll post the hop at the end of the month, and we can all link up our favorite posts. (I will try this at the end of November. If no one is interested, I’ll move on to something else!)


Why call it Come to the Table? Because one of my favorite things is to gather around a cozy kitchen table with a group of friends–with a mug of coffee in hand, of course–and share whatever is on our hearts.

What is a blog hop? An event where bloggers link up their posts and share with readers whatever is on their hearts.

Giveaway Prize: I’m giving away a $10 Amazon Email Gift Card to one participant. You are entered when you link up and each time you comment on a post! Giveaway ends next Friday, December 7th.

What kind of posts will bloggers link here? I invite bloggers to link their favorite post (or posts) from the last month . . .

  • Thoughts on how God has been working in your life
  • A post about your family
  • A review of a great book you’ve read
  • A giveaway we’d be interested in
  • A word about something wonderful that just happened to you
  • A post about a disappointment or heartache
  • Thoughts on Scripture
  • A list of some of your favorite things

So with all those choices, readers will find a little bit of everything at this blog hop. Bloggers, link what you will—as long as it is Inspirational or Family Friendly.

  1. Renee, I am so glad you are doing this again. I know it is taking time out of your own busy schedule to gather us together here in Cyberland, but I thoroughly enjoyed the posts I did get around to reading! I’ll be linking up soon 🙂 Love in Christ!!!

  2. Thanks for sharing this post and opportunity to link up. I bookmarked the page so I can stop back later and check out the other links.

  3. I will be posting this to my new blog — please include me. I want to “Come to the Table” too. Can’t wait to see the other blogs . . .

  4. This is a great idea, Renee! I’m so new at doing book reviews and blogging…let’s just say that every day is a learning experience. I was successful at inserting your “Come to the Table” button into one of my posts, but is that all I do? How do you get to see my blog post?

    Instead of book reviews, I linked a Thanksgiving prayer based on Psalm 23 that was very meaningful to me.

    Any help or suggestions you have about book reviews and blogging would be appreciated, as I definitely lack self-confidence. And I’d love to have more followers on my blog. Thank you!

    • Carole, just click on the words that say “Click here to enter” & follow the directions. You need to copy & paste the URL of your post in the correct spot. Add your name, email, and a graphic if you wish, and you should be good to go 🙂

  5. I want to come to the table too. I love blog hops and always enjoying following your posts.

  6. Thanks Renee. I always enjoy your posts. I joined your blog hop, but by mistake under my website I wrote “Come to the Table.” But the link takes readers to my website. Sorry to confuse things. I want to share a great book I just read and reviewed for a new author. Leslie Monroe wrote “Buried Treasure- Revealing your husband as The Man of Your Dreams.” I was so surprised by the wisdom of this young author. I have been married 45 years and I felt like she taught me something new. I wrote a review for her on Amazon. Her Kindle book is $ .99 and the print is only $5.99. I will be ordering several for Christmas. I enjoyed viewing all the other blogs in your hop. Blessings, Barbara Anne Waite – Author Memoir :”Elsie- Adventures of an Arizona Schoolteacher 1913-1916″

  7. Thanks for hosting this!
