Down syndrome Awareness Weekend Blog Hop: First Hop

October Down syndrome Weekend Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Down syndrome Weekend Blog Hop, in which we all try to raise awareness regarding Down syndrome, connect the Down syndrome blogging community and to inspire our blogging selves with the our collective awesomeness!

 

Those of you that are participating in the 31-for-21 Blogging Marathon, please select the one post you liked best that you posted in the course of the week and share that on the Hop.

 

For those of you that are not participating in 31-for-21, please select either a new post or a favorite past post and share that.

 

Blog Hop will be open until Sunday, October 7th, 11:59 Pacific. Blog Hop will be archived on the T21 Alliance and Down syndrome Blog Sites (links below).

HOP ON!

 

Blog Hop Code:

There will be a link "get code" at the bottom of each blog hop – it would be great to click, copy and paste the code to your own blog. When you do that, you yourself become a host for the Blog Hop. You help share the diversity of expression, thought and belief in our writing community when you include the voices of everyone else in the Hop.

TO ADD THE HOP CODE:

Just copy and past this:

 

<!– start LinkyTools script –>

<script src="http://www.linkytools.com/basic_linky_include.aspx?id=164825" type="text/javascript"></script>

<!– end LinkyTools script –>

 

Into the HTML view of your post. Switch back to visual. If you don't see it immediately, that's okay. It's usually only visible after you've made it live by posting it.

 

Blog Hop Button:

Share this Hop! The more the merrier! (note: it works in the sidebar, not the main page – but if you have issues, email me)


THANK YOU!
