Welcome to the Weekend Blog Hoppers!
THE WEEKEND BLOG HOPPERS
(What is this all about? Scroll all the way down)
Aug 7, 2009 - Welcome, BlogHoppers! We're reviving the hop once again for this weekend. The list below contains all participants from our May 15 BlogHoppers reunion. I am too lazy to re-make a list, so just hop the list below. It's not like anyone will mind you leaving drunken comments on a Fri night anyway, right?

"Just wanted to thank you for the awesome party that lasted into the wee hours of today... I have NEVER had 30+ comments to a post before. I am floored and ever so thankful for this great idea. I have so many new blogs to visit now."
- Maureen @ I'd Rather Be Blogging
What is this ridiculousness?
This is classic "when life gives you lemons" lemonade. We've just spiked it with a healthy dose of Vodka. As parents, we no longer have a night life. Sure, a birthday bash here, a bachelor party there, but all in all, you can pretty much set your watch to the fact that we're home on weekend nights. We're also bloggers. Bloggers live and die by the mighty comment. The Weekend Blog Hoppers takes both factors into account and gives parent bloggers a reason to look forward to Friday and Saturday nights (after the kids are in bed).
What do you do?
The best way to describe this is a virtual night out. But instead of hopping from bar to bar with our friends, getting buzzed, getting feely and talking cheeky, we're hopping each others' blogs.
What's the point?
To have a good time, get to know other bloggers whose real-word weekend lives are just as uneventful as yours and build each others' ranking and traffic through comments.
How do you play?
- Surf other Weekend Blog Hoppers' blogs and drop comments freely.
- Sign your comments as your Weekend Blog Hoppers alter ego (mine is BuzzeeDad).
- For any comments that you get from a fellow Weekend Blog Hopper, cut 'em a little slack because it's all in good fun. Don't read into it, don't get offended -- we're all friends just letting it all hang out, virtually (you can always edit and delete the next morning and pretend you never met).
- Drinking while commenting is HIGHLY encouraged, but of course not required.
- (Optional) Proudly display a Weekend Bloghoppers Badge on your blog and link it to this page. Badges can be found here. I also have straight HTML code for them too if that's easier. Just email me.
- Visit other cool bloggers who might have fun with this and recruit them for the movement.
Note: Originally this was for parent bloggers only. That is no longer the case. Anyone with a blog can join the party.
