Walking on Sunshine Blog Hop Party

This weekend, to celebrate the Partial Solar Eclipse in the UK, a Super Moon and the arrival of the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, Hugh from Hugh’s Views and News is hosting a Blog Hop Party and everyone here on Planet Blog is invited!

We’re heading into winter in this part of the World (although you wouldn’t think so with the sweltering temperatures we’ve been experiencing) so I guess that makes today our Autumn Equinox.  Happy Spring Day everyone else!

I follow and read so many wonderful blogs – each one is unique, inspiring, funny, entertaining, awe-inspiring. Every day when I visit my reader I learn something new, see something beautiful, laugh, sometimes cry. I love the way blogging brings people together, turning strangers into friends. I would like to link to every one of them but for the sake of brevity I have chosen to only highlight three. You can see a list of some of the other blogs I follow in the menu bar on the right – they are all worth a visit.

I want to thank Savannabel for giving me the courage to go ‘live’ with my blog. Had it not been for her egging me on I would still be writing secretly, for myself. Her blog is beautifully written and illustrated and her delicious recipes, all made with a unique local twist, are interwoven with interesting stories of life in the Zambezi Valley.

The first blog I followed is one of my favourites. Rachel cleverly winds her story around the amusing antics of her two (very cute) dogs, Cricket and Butterfly on The Cricket Pages. I try not to ever miss an episode.

One fellow blogger in particular has made a huge impact on my life. She has been my rock and my inspiration, and (with help from her husband) she has taught me just about everything I know and made me who I am.

She has a remarkable story to tell and I hope that you will take the time to go and read it at I Had a Life in Africa (the link will take you to her About page).

Ladies and Gentlemen, at risk of being accused of nepotism, I introduce to you Dendy MacToodle, AKA My Mum.

If you want to join in the fun this is all you need to do:

1. Choose a fellow blogger who you think spreads blog love.

2. Write a short post about them.

3. Entitle your post Walking On Sunshine Blog Hop Party (so others can find your post).

4. Create a pingback to Hugh’s post, so that the link appears in the comments section, so that other participants can read your post.  Click here for details on how to create a pingback.

5. If you are not sure how to create a pingback, then copy and paste the link to your post in the comments section below Hugh’s post (so that other participants can read your post).

You can mention as many bloggers as you want in your post and write as much about them as you want, but try to not make your post too long.  You can also use Hugh’s Walking On Sunshine Weekend photo in your post if you want to.

Enjoy the party everyone and keep spreading the blog love.
