Introducing the Gratitude Hop!

GRATITUDE - warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received; very thankful. [Gratitude week begins here.Click for this week's Bliss Initiatives.]
You may have noticed something new at the top of the blog when you popped on over today! (You must visit the actual blog here and not view in a reader for you to see what I am talking about.)

I am super excited to introduce my newest Grateful inspiration -- The Gratitude Hop. We have all heard of blog hops. (Heck I am introducing a new one THEN and NOW over at Everyday Mommy today.) Blog Hops are a fun way to get to know each other and share what is going on over at our blogs. I enjoy participating and I met many of my best bloggy friends while participating in them.

My Gratitude Hop is the same but different in a few ways:

First in my Gratitude Hop you share someone/something you are grateful for and you link, not to yourself, but to them!  You pick people places or things that make you happy and you share a link to their web site, a specific post or in the case of product perhaps the amazon link. You can Link to what ever it is you think represents your gratitude. Even those of you without blogs can play in this hop!

And then to make it really fun, and to encourage the actual hopping to each others grateful fun, for every "new to you" spot you hop to from the growing list, leave a comment in this post and I will count it as FIVE entries in my "Win a Pig Giveaway" I will also count every grateful hopping link as an additional entry into the Giveaway. Share your gratitude loudly and a fabulous prize could very well be yours!

I will be keeping the Gratitude Hop up on the top of the blog for the rest of Gratitude Week so you can feel free to add additional items and hop around as you wish. At the end of the week I will move the hop down to the bottom of the page and it will be available until the end of the month for your hopping pleasure!

Please feel free to add as many or few grateful images as you would like to share. I am excited to visit and find out all the cool things for which you are Grateful!
