Everybody’s Hopping For the Weekend

Okay, maybe not everybody, but all the cool kids are.
Remember way back in the day, you know BK (before kids) when you and your buddies or significant other used to go out and behave like rampant monkeys behave responsibly while chugging downing sipping adult beverages. While those days are long gone, which is not a bad thing.

one of my favorite daddy bloggers has come up with a fabulous bloggy solution. He’s created this fabulous group. The Weekend Blog Hoppers and the sublime Judith Shakespeare created the awesome buttons for it, she also blinged my blog by the way. She rocks.
So back on topic.

Cute button, huh?
Here, I’ll let BD, explain the insanity to you himself.

What is this ridiculousness?

This is classic “when life gives you lemons” lemonade. We’ve just spiked it with a healthy dose of Vodka. As parents, we no longer have a night life. Sure, a birthday bash here, a bachelor party there, but all in all, you can pretty much set your watch to the fact that we’re home on weekend nights. We’re also bloggers. Bloggers live and die by the mighty comment. The Weekend Blog Hoppers takes both factors into account and gives parent bloggers a reason to look forward to Friday and Saturday nights (after the kids are in bed).

What do you do?

The best way to describe this is a virtual night out. But instead of hopping from bar to bar with our friends, getting buzzed, getting feely and talking cheeky, we’re hopping each others’ blogs.

What’s the point?

To have a good time, get to know other bloggers whose real-word weekend lives are just as uneventful as yours and build each others’ ranking and traffic through comments.

Basically we’re all comment whores, really. We live and die by comment count don’t we 🙂 Plus, it’s a great way to find new blogs, ‘meet’ new people and just another excuse to sit in front of the computer and play.
