Storytellers Blog Hop: April

Hey hey hey, it is that time again. Storytellers Blog Hop is back again. And holy cow, so is the end of the month? April, what April!?

You know what, I am OK with that. Bring on May. Because May means I am back in Tex-Ass. Yes, Friday is our last full day in Germany and we are headed home first thing on Saturday.

I always think of Sandy when I say Tex-Ass, guess I'm 5 years old! (source)

Our bags are packed, the winter stuff is stored, and I am actually looking forward to a long plane ride home! What is wrong with me?! haha

But, until then, I am happy to host the Storytellers Blog Hop!

If you linked up last time, thanks for coming back! If you are new, I'll give you the quick run down.

I like to think that this hop is somewhat unique from all the others out there. 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.

MOST IMPORTANTLY you don't have to write anything special for the hop. Just link up your blog and let it be who it is!

Your blog is your story, so let it shine!
And spread the love if know of some blogs that need to be linked up here!

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.

If you have the time this weekend, explore some of the great reads below. A new-to-you, good blog is just a click away.

I doubt you will regret it :)

  21. Hi, I'm following from The Juici Life. Congrats on the award!!

  22. I became a follower of your blog! :) Love it! Erin


  23. Thank you for doing this, but I just realized, I'm too late to link up.

    I don't get the couponing and giveaway blogs. And I'd rather follow people I'd like to read who in turn sometimes like to read my stuff--but they don't have too.

    So I'll follow you, even though I think I'm old enough to be your mom!

  24. http://ellieisanewthing.blogspot.com/2011/04/in-her-shoes.html

    That's what I was going to link up with, if you'd like to read a bit from my life. It's one of those could-be-written better stories, but it was time to just get it out there.

  25. I love this idea I am always looking for new blogs :) I think I am going to grab a cup of coffee and browse through the ones posted so far :)

  26. GAAAAH! How do I always miss this!!??

    PS: I think I have the plague and just rolled my ass out of bed...feel sorry for me yet?

    Next month - I am SO gonna be on time!!!

    *stomps feet and whines*

  27. @Becky - well no problem, I am glad you linked up!
    @XLMIC - You are welcome! Glad you linked up too!
