Happy Thursday and welcome to Crunchy Frugalista and Money Savvy Michelle’s Thankful for Friends Thursday Google Friend Connect blog hop! The theme of this blog hop is to help everyone get more GFC followers and it’s super easy to participate.
Why is GFC important as a blogger? A few reasons include it gives readers another way to stay up-to-date and follow your blog. When someone follows you, it automatically adds your RSS feed to their reader. You also have the option to send out newsletters to your GFC subscribers, can use it to make polls to find out information about who subscribes to your blog, and some companies just like knowing how many subscribers you have.
We’re happy to now offer guest host spots for our hops! If you’d like to guest host Thankful for Friends Thursday with us, please fill out the form located here.
While not required, we’d love it if you could share our giveaway linky with others through a short blog post, Twitter, or Facebook. After all, the more people that participate, the more followers we can all get!
To Participate in Thankful for Friends Thursday:
- Follow your co-hosts Crunchy Frugalista and Money Savvy Michelle on Google Friend Connect (located on our right side bars) if you don’t already. We always follow back those who leave a comment.
- Enter a link to your blog below with your blog name followed by your GFC location in parenthesis as the title. If people can’t easily find your widget, odds are they won’t take the time to try to follow you. Example: Money Savvy Michelle (rt side bar)
- Visit as many other blogs as you can and follow them on GFC. Be sure to leave them a comment saying you found them through the Thankful for Friends Thursday hop and that you hope they can follow you back, with a link to your blog.
- We also have weekly hops for Alexa, Twitter, Giveaways, Facebook, Wild Card, & Email/RSS Subscribers. Check them out and link up!
