Maybe it's because I'm an old fuddy duddy, but I had never heard of blog hops before last month. Then someone asked if I wanted to give away a copy of George and the Galactic Games as part of a blog hop giveaway. I agreed to do it, and I've gotten some exposure and made some online (mainly Twitter) connections as a result. Then one of the people I started following on Twitter clued me in to a Young Adult Faeries & Fantasy Giveaway Hop. Since I read YA Fantasy books, I visited several of the participating blogs to enter, this time as a reader instead of a contributor. I hope I win something! Whoever invented blog hop giveaways, thank you! What a great idea! I'm going to keep an eye out for more.
