Storytellers Blog Hop

Welcome to the Storytellers Blog Hop!

Glad you stopped by, really :) I am thrilled to host a hop where you won't have to close out every other window because of coupon deals and worthless advertising. One where you don't have to navigate through the mess of 'save a measly 15% percent for something you never wanted' blogs.

I've been wanting to host a unique blog hop for some time now, one that caters to blogs that tell stories, and have actual real content. It doesn't matter whether the 'stories' are fact or fiction, told with words or pictures, consist of ramblings or thought out chapters, or lighthearted or serious. This hop is for real bloggers with real stories. No advertising, give aways, reviews or coupon sites.




(WHOOPS, THE BUTTON WAS BROKEN, SHOULD BE WORKING NOW!)
Link to any post you would like. You don't have to come up with a 'story', you don't have to do anything special, you just link up your blog and be you.  
Your blog is your story, so let it shine!

Only. One. Rule. Please, no sites that specialize in ads, coupons, giveaways, etc. There are many blog hops just for you, but today, this hop isn't one of them. Sorry guys.

Other than that, there are no rules, no 'follow' musts, only an easy outlet to stumble upon new and interesting blogs.

And since I am fully aware of the irony of me hosting blog hop about 'content only, storytellers' sites, here are a few of my favorite posts: You DO Know GermanWhy Darts Rock, No Really, I'm No Prude, But..., and Gypsy Weddings!

Thanks bloggyland for being great! Have a 'hoppy' weekend...so lame :)

  16. @Johnny Utah...I'm having the same issue on my blog; did a CCP into HTML and it comes up with an "x". Could be a site glitch.

    In any event, once again, this was such a great idea...no coupons, no junk, just some wonderful stories.

    Thanks!

I was going to create a new story, but instead I'm linking my first post which explains why I even started this whole blogging adventure.

  57. Can I give a big "YEAH!!!" to the nonsense of the ads that slow down the sites, not to mention the giveaways for such enticements as hemorrhoid cream??? Yeesh!

Whoomp, there it is!
