How Do I Do This Blog Hop Thang?

 

If you’re new to blogging OR just new to Blog Hops, (or need a reminder), here’s what you do:

  1. The post that you want to submit to the Blog Hop needs to have a link back to the Blog Hop either with a Button (provided for you below) or with a text link.  For example you might say in your post…”This post was shared on Thursdays @ the Homestead Blog Hop”, or “I participated in Thursdays @ the Homestead Blog Hop” and this would generally go at the end of your post.  Either the button or the text link is fine.  How do you make the link?  Copy the URL of Thursdays @ the Homestead from your browser address bar.  Then click or highlight your button or text, then click the “link” button on your blogging tool bar and paste the URL into that line.  Save and that’s it.

Here’s the button:

Thursday 2 

  1. When your post is all written, edited and linked up, then you need to link up your blog post by using the Linky Widget below.  Linky is very easy to use and self-explanatory.
  2. Please link the URL of your actual BLOG POST and NOT your blogs HOME PAGE. Most blogging platforms show a URL or shortlink at the top of your post when you are in your dashboard area.  Highlight this URL, it is what you will place in the Linky Widget.
  3. Homesteading/Prepping bloggers, please visit other blogs posts and comment…share the love!

How Can I Be a Featured Blogger?

 

Every Blog Hop, you the reader gets to “Like” the posts and from those tallies we get the Featured Blogs of the week-of which 3 are chosen!  There are a few extra steps to be done, to be considered for Featured Blog of the Week:

1. You must link back to the Blog Hop (any of the host’s sites) with the Button or a Text Link.

2.  Follow us on at least 2 Social Networks of your choice: Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Pinterest.

3.  Please visit at least 2 Blog Hop posts and comment letting them know you found them here, don’t forget to “like” their Blog Hop Post Article too.

Master Brownie Mix

Cake mixes, brownie mixes, canned pie fillings and puddings are some of the more common pre-made food most Americans keep in our pantries.  But you save a lot of money and avoid any ingredients that commercial producers may use in pre-packaging something you can easily make yourself.  Part of building your own store is learning to make the foods that you rely on buying at your local grocers.  Here is a delicious brownie mix I have all the time.  Like with any brownie mix, you can adapt it to make them just exactly the way you love them.  Cover them with icing, add chocolate or butterscotch chips, marshmallow or nuts.  You have total control. Learning to use the foods you store develops the skills you may have no choice but to face in tough financial and economical times.

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
