Introducing the Let's Bee Quilt'n Hive!

As I have told you, I am one of the co-hosts this year for the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop. This a group of new bloggers who have joined me and my two other co-hosts, Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl and Beth from Cooking Up Quilts, for a blog hop over April and May.

The whole group of new bloggers have been connecting since March 1 to share ideas about blogging and to learn tips and tricks to make blogging more fun for everyone. The group recently divided into three hives for the actual blog hop and my hive has decided to name itself the Let's Bee Quilt'n hive. They also created hive buttons and you see the one that my group designed and selected at the top of this post.

During April and May, we will be getting to know the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers better through a series of blog hops, divided among the three hives; Yvonne's hive is called Blooming Quilters and Beth's hive is called Better Bloggers. Each week of the blog hop, we will feature 4 - 5 bloggers from each hive so that you can get to know these new bloggers better.

This is why I joined this fun project, to get to know some fresh new blogs and the bloggers behind them, and I think you will enjoy it too.

The Let's Bee Quilt'n hive members are:


Be sure to stop by Quilting Jetgirl by Yvonne and Cooking Up Quilts by Beth to meet their hives too.

A big part of the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop is the sharing of available information about blogging. We will share advice posts from seasoned blogging veterans as part of this event with you too. I have started a page for the Advice for New Bloggers gathered in the Blog Hop. For today we are sharing:

I can't wait to follow along on this year's hop. It was so much fun to be a part of last year. It looks like most of your hive will be new to me, although I see a couple of quilty friends on there too.

This is a great idea and will hopefully help keep blogging alive in our community, it's felt like it was dying out a little recently. Well done Leanne and others!
