Introducing Simple Lives Thursday – A new blog hop!!

Posted · 12 Comments

I am so excited to finally share with you the new blog hop, Simple Lives Thursday, that I am taking part in with three other amazing blogs…

Simple Lives Thursday is not just about cooking but in living sustainably.  In producing more and consuming less!

So what exactly is a blog hop? 

A blog hop is a way to share with many people your posts on what you are doing to live a simple life. Whether that’s gardening, raising urban chickens, making your own deodorant, or cleaning supplies… we want to know about it!  If you’re into homeopathy, ways to save $ by conserving energy or other ways to live frugally… we want to know about it!   If you bike, cook real food, homestead or farm… we want to know about it!

This blog hop is not about driving traffic but in about sharing with others what YOU are doing.  By sharing your posts on this blog hop, we can all learn something new to start implementing change to living a simpler life.

So how does it work?

Simple!  Every Thursday, you link up one of your posts that relates to living simply to one of the four hosting blogs.

  1. A Little Bit of Spain in Iowa
  2. Sustainable Eats
  4. Culinary Bliss

We will have a McLinky posted underneath our own Living Simply Thursday post.  All you need to do is add your post url (not your home url), insert an image and a thumbnail of your post will be displayed across all four blogs!  How AWESOME is that!  More people to view what you are doing to create change!!

A great example of a fabulous blog hop is the Two for Tuesdays, Real Food blog hop.  Check it out and you’ll see how your Living Simply Thursday posts will be displayed.

The only thing that we ask is that at the end of your blog post, please include a link to the weekly blog hop on one of the four hosting blogs.  You can include a text link or use my Simple Lives Thursday Badge by grabbing the code below.  Each of the four blogs has their own badge that you can use!


I’m so excited to see what you all bring to the Simple Lives Thursday blog hop!  I’m ready to start learning new ways to living a simpler life!!  Consume Less, Produce More 😀  Have a great week and we’ll see you next Thursday!
