I have always wanted to host a blog event like a hop. I’m starting this blog crawl to be a fun way to share all of our blog posts during the month, while fitting in some weekend reading. Why a blog crawl? I figure that since we can post more than one post during the month, the list will crawl to a ginormous wealth of blog posts. Also, I get most of my blog reading in on the weekend, because I’m forcing myself to take it easy with “work”. Crawling my way through blog posts will be a wonderfully distracting way to do this.
Here’s how I’m going to go about doing this. I want you all to add your blog posts. YES. POSTS. For every blog post from now to October 31st 2013, I want your links on this blog crawl. This will do a few things. Firstly (is that a word?) I will have blog posts to read on the weekends as I crawl myself away from working. Your links to your posts will be here for anyone else to see, you can grab the code (below the links) to put the link-up on your blog, and I’m going to give you a graphic for your sidebar (see photo above). The bonus is, you all get some great reading material too. Whatever much or little you want is cool.
Here that code I promised you. You can change the dimensions to fit your blog. Mine are set at 175 pixels square. Just copy and paste the code into your text/html area of your sidebar.

I figure this will build up a pretty cool list of October blog posts. (I’ve also been known to share stuff I LOVE on all my social media, so there’s that too.) I’m pretty psyched about all of this, especially since October is my favorite month out of the year. I’m totally digging Halloween and all the goodies there, so tell your pals, and let’s do this.
