Before you sign up for the Pals Blog Hop for this month, consider the following…

    • Will you be available the night before and the day of the Blog Hop? This is absolutely necessary in case problems occur.
    • If traveling for pleasure or for work commitments, will you have access to your blog hop post the night before and the day of the Pals Blog Hop? Again, this is absolutely necessary in case problems occur.
    • Will you follow all stipulations for participating in the Hop? You must check all links before scheduling your post. You must schedule your post to go live the same time as everyone else regardless of time zone or site/blogging platform restrictions.

Having correct links for Blog Hop participants is vital to maintain the integrity of the Pals Blog Hop. When your link fails, the Blog Hop is broken. We are taking measures to minimize the linkage required to participate. Your diligence to maintaining the flow of the Blog Hop is key to the Pal’s success in providing a professional Blog Hop.

Hop day information (problems with your post or the hop in general) will be communicated via Email and Facebook in the Pals Stampin’ Chat Group. Changes must be made promptly on the Hop Day.

If you have any questions at all, please contact Katy McGloin ([email protected]) or Rae Harper-Burnet ([email protected]).
