On the 8th day before Christmas Doorkeeper gave to me One Blog Hop and Two Giveaways!

This is a special post to explain a blog hop that’s featuring my site. But below that info, I’ve posted details about two giveaways. So email subscribers might want to come to the blog for those, and fellow bloggers may want to join the hop!


Welcome to the Feed Me Friday Blog Hop hosted by Oh So Savvy Mom and From Chalkboards to Strollers! This is a hop to help folks meet new bloggers and to help bloggers build their e-mail subscriptions.

If this is your first time stopping in at Doorkeeper, you can read about why I started this blog here. Or you can see some pictures of my daily life at In Senior English, It’s Jingo All the Way. Or check out what a typical Book Club Day looks like.

Are you unfamiliar with Feed Me Friday but want to join in? Just follow these simple rules:

  • Add your blog link to the linky at the bottom of this post. Subscribe by email and follow via GFC the two hostesses (Oh So Savvy Mom and From Chalkboards to Strollers) and the Featured Blogger. (Today that’s me!) We will return the favor.
  • Visit as many blogs on the list as you can. If you like the blog, subscribe to their email. (Feel free to follow on GFC too, if you want.)
  • Leave them a comment with your blog link so they know you are subscribing from Feed Me Friday. Be sure to confirm your subscription! Subscribing back is not mandatory, but it is recommended. It is a great way to build blogging relationships.
  • Since this is an e-mail subscription blog hop, your blog must have a place for people to subscribe to your email. If there isn’t an e-mail subscribe option, your link will be removed from the linky.

If you would like to be the featured blogger, here is what  you need to do: Include the Feed Me Friday button somewhere on your page.  You can include it in a post or on your homepage, just don’t hide it on some obscure page somewhere in your blog. (Remember, in order to be chosen as the featured blogger, you must have an email subscription option on your blog.) If you have done these and would like to be considered, you must leave a comment saying so on Amy’s blog, Oh So Savvy Mom.

Now, before we get to the linky list . . .
