Should Blog Hop Hosts Enforce Rules?
These blog hop hosts want to spread the word about their hop which in turn helps all those who participate. However, as someone who has had their link deleted and received an email message stating that I didn't follow the rules, it made feel terrible. In my defense, it's not that I didn't want to post about the blog hop - I either didn't know there was such a rule or I hadn't gotten to it yet. As a result, I no longer participate in that blog hop because I was made to feel bad for breaking the rules.
So my question is for my fellow bloggers. What is your opinion? Should blog hops have strict rules about posting buttons on side bars or creating a post for the blog hop? Should the blog hop hosts enforce these rules and delete those who break them?
I host two blog hops and I don't have any strict rules. I host these hops as a way to bring fellow bloggers together, to create a relationship with those who visit my sites and introduce others to my blogs. And to be perfectly honest, I don't have time to police who is and isn't following or if my blog hop button is being posted. When I come across a blog that has posted my blog hop button, I always thank them because I feel that they have posted my button because they truly like participating in my hop.
Let's hear your opinions as fellow bloggers.
