    We are off to a great start! Thanks so much for hosting. I’ll follow a blog because the quilter inspiring and that encourages me to grow as a quilter/artist. I like and follower quilters who share their creative process, tools and techniques.

  12. Quilting Tangent says:

    Halloween is my favorite holiday.

  13. My initial reason to follow a blog is the content and photos I see. What usually makes me stop following a blog is either the posts don’t coincide with what I originally thought was interesting to me, the blogger never replies to my comments, or (and this is a biggie) their blog is too busy looking and has a difficult to read font.

    1. Thanks, Diana!

    I follow blogs because they give me inspiration. I think my favorite holiday is the 4th of July. Our family always hosted the family picnic that holiday and it takes me back to fond memories. Thank you so much for all the great advise and I will check out what the others have to say. L

  16. I’m not sure how I’ll keep up with the hop, but I’m sure going to try! I’m looking forward to meeting lots of new bloggers.

    Bit late here this week, but I’ve just been catching up on all the links above. And I must go and ‘like’ you on FB anyway, I’m so rubbish at FB that I really need to see how it’s done well! For the questions for questions sake – follow a blog when I feel some kind of connection, when I feel I’m getting to know the blogger and want to know what happens next with them. And holidays – Summer, Summer, Summer! Not sure that’s what you meant, but Summer anyway!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
