The Collective Social Blog Hop

(I'm still in love with my wedding... this was our table settings.)

It's hard to believe that 3 months ago I was kicking around the idea of starting a blog. I just assumed that people wrote their own thing and some other people might read it. Foolish me! I had no idea there was such a community of bloggers out there giving each other props and inspiring each other. Then there was the discovery of blog hops! Holy Moly, What a source of amazing blogs to read. The first (and one of the best) blog hops I took part in was The Collective Social Blog Hop... and so I am very proud this week to be sponsoring it. Have a go! It's a lot of fun!

Welcome to the weekly blog hop party, The Collective Social Blog Hop.
This is a link up for bloggers who want to gain followers and meet awesome people.

The best social media blog hop, The Collective

Not sure if this is the blog hop for you? Listen to what other bloggers have to say...

"Just to let you know, your blog hop is the best I've participated in for gaining new friends!!! I couldn't believe the results!! Thank you!"
- Danavee, This Vintage Grove

"I'm dropping by to let you know that I love being a part of your blog hop! 
 I have been meeting really nice bloggers.  Bloggers who are actually friendly and want to connect! 
I'm putting the blog hop button on my side bar, like, permanently!  Everyone should know about it. Just thought I'd share with you. Thank you."
-Vickie, Oh Abby Day

"Hi BreAnna, just want to say that your blog is beautiful, creative, and fun. The GFC collective is one of my favorite parts of the blogging week. Love meeting new friends and fellow bloggers. We just started our blog and were amazed at how helpful the GFC collective is! Keep up the amazing work."
-Alea and Rachael, Sparkle Your Life

"This GFC Collective Hop is seriously one of the best link ups out there! Through this hop I have found so many great blogs & friends that I wouldn't have otherwise found! Thank you so much for hosting such a fun link up! Please take the time to link up & join along! You won't be sorry that you did!"
