Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Thanks for stopping by for the blog hop!

You may have noticed that we missed last week’s hop!  But here we are again this week, so I hope that it was worth the wait!

If you accidentally stumbled across this blog hop, and wonder what a blog hop is even about, that’s ok!  A blog hop is kind of like Show and Tell, in the blogging world!

So…feel free to SHOW others the fun/neat things you’ve come up with, and TELL about them in your blog post!

Have fun!

In honor of September 11, I’ve had this song playing around in my mind. So, in tribute to the many brave heroes and people our country lost that day, please enjoy this song.

Watch Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning video here.


Now on to the hop…

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more!  Basically anything related to homesteading.

  1. Hi Laurie!
    Thank you for hosting The Homestead Hop each week! I stopped by last week and saw that you were having technical issues…so glad that’s fixed. 🙂 I hate technical issues, lol!

    Have a great week!
