We have almost 20 blogs along the 2nd Unofficial Crop Chocolate Blog Hop. I say "almost" because we have a couple of new bloggers that are a little nervous about getting their post ready. I have reassured them that blogging is relatively easy and have sent them a few hints for scheduling a post (in case their time zone makes it difficult to post just before the start of the hop), posting pictures and creating links (along with a few links to documentation). We also have a couple of people who are going to try to get projects ready to be guest bloggers. As we all know life can throw us some curve balls so we will do our best to quickly adjust if necessary. If people cannot create something "in time" we will all understand. Sometimes I wonder how I'm going to get everything done I need to.
Mark your calendars for the blog hop start. The hop will start at mommyx2's blog at 8am MDT on Friday, March 23. Everyone will have until 8am MDT on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 to comment. We have two confirmed giveaways. One is a 12×12 Hello Spring Mini Theme Kit by Echo Park and another is a 12×12 Fourth Of July Mini Theme Kit by Echo Park (generously donated by Echo Park Paper Co.). We will post updates if we are able to secure additional giveaways. To be eligible to win on the 2nd Unofficial Crop Chocolate Blog Hop, you need to comment on each blog along the hop and be able to receive packages (no post office boxes). It is open worldwide. The winners will be selected via random.org.
Some of the bloggers along the hop have mentioned that they plan to offer blog candy. Be sure to look for those announcements and follow the steps they would like you to do to be eligible for those prizes.
I am going to try to post sneak peaks everyday until the blog hop starts. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone creates.
