Benefits of Participating in Blog Hops and Challenges

In world of instant gratification, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest are the social media platforms that seem to get the most attention these days.  Gone are the days of waking up and reading your favorite blog posts, now it's about checking to see the cards posted on your favorite quick hit social media site.  So, why do we still see people starting new blogs and companies focused on blog hops and challenges?  Because, those blogs are where the magic happens!  In today's podcast, we talk about the benefits of hosting and participating in blog/video hops and card challenges.


What is a blog hop?
A blog hop is sponsored or held by a specific company or group with other bloggers.  The reader "hops" to each of the blogs in the hop, leaves a comment and hopes to win a prize.

What is a blog challenge?
A blog challenge can be hosted by a company, group or person and typically has a theme that the entrants need to follow in order to win "the prize".  The entrant will need to link their card to the challenge post in order to entered into the challenge.
