For the New Year, we thought we’d bring back something we used to do in the past but haven’t done in a long while – a blog hop with Ylva authors.
A blog hop is where a group of people with blogs decide to band together and make consecutive blog posts in a set period, providing links at the end of each of their posts to to the next person in the chain. It’s a great way to learn more about bloggers you may not know about. In this case, we’re hoping that you’ll get to see an unfamiliar or new side to many of our authors and will learn something interesting about an author you don’t know at all.
Each author will make a post during the month of January on a set date, then link to the next author in the chain. We thought we’d start off the whole thing with a little introduction here to each author participating in the blog hop:
