I established the collie blog 5 years ago this month. So I guess it's our 5 year Blogiversary! It's been a fun 5 years, and I've discovered so many interesting blogs along the way! One thing I noticed over the years, from watching new blogs start and some older blogs end, is that it's difficult to keep track. I wish there was a better way to discover new blogs to read. I realize there are posts set up to welcome new pet bloggers to the community, but that's only a handful of the new blogs, as so many others are missed and it doesn't help us find blogs that have been around for awhile.
I'm always looking for new or interesting blogs to read, and I seem to find new ones all the time by joining different blog hops. But I was wondering, has anyone ever created a "discover new pet blogs" hop? It would be a great opportunity for fellow bloggers to post about their favorite blogs, and post links, so the others could visit too. But it would have to be a way to share new blogs, or existing blogs with few followers, and not just the well-known, popular blogs. I've never hosted a blog hop, so I'm not sure how to set it up, or advertise it. But it occurred to me that one might already exist, and I just haven't found it.
So how do you discover new blogs to read and follow?
