I hope you’re enjoying this long weekend. The first of September signals the beginning of fall on our homestead. Even when the sun lingers, cool crisp nights, and leaves littering the field and road remind me that winter is just around the corner.

We’ve been busy in the garden, preserving the harvest. I’ve still got apple pie filling, blackberry jelly, and October beans left to put up. I hope you enjoy this edition of the Homestead Hop and your long weekend.

How Do I Do This Blog Hop Thang?

If you’re new to blogging OR just new to Blog Hops, (or need a reminder), here’s what you do:

The post that you want to submit to the Blog Hop needs to have a link back to the Blog Hop either with a Button (provided for you below) or with a text link. For example you might say in your post…”This post was shared on The Homesteaders Blog Hop”, or “I participated in The Homesteaders Blog Hop” and this would generally go at the end of your post. Either the button or the text link is fine. How do you make the link? Copy the URL of The Homesteaders Blog Hop from your browser address bar. Then click or highlight your button or text, then click the “link” button on your blogging tool bar and paste the URL into that line. Save and that’s it.

Here’s the button:

And Here is the Code to Go with Your Shiny New Button:

<div align=”center” style=”padding: 5px;”><img src=”http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y417/smplylvng/homesteadersbigbutton_zps94704d92.jpg” title=”The Homesteaders Blog Hop” alt=”The Homesteaders Blog Hop” /></div><textarea style=”background:#f0f0f0;border:solid 1px #cccccc; color: #777777; font-size:100%; height: 50px; margin:auto; text-align: left; padding: 2px 0 2px 5px; display: block; width: 90%;”>&lt;div align=”center”>&lt;a href=”http://www.modernhomesteaders.net/our-blog/” title=”The Homesteaders Blog Hop” target=”_blank”&gt;&lt;img src=”http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y417/smplylvng/homesteadersbigbutton_zps94704d92.jpg” alt=”The Homesteaders Blog Hop” style=”border:none;” /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div></textarea>

Just copy/paste this into your sidebar and voila…your button!

When your post is all written, edited and linked up, then you need to link up your blog post by using the Linky Widget below. Linky is very easy to use and self-explanatory.

Please link the URL of your actual BLOG POST and NOT your blogs HOME PAGE. Most blogging platforms show a URL or shortlink at the top of your post when you are in your dashboard area. Highlight this URL, it is what you will place in the Linky Widget.

Homesteading/Prepping bloggers, please visit other blogs posts and comment…share the love!
