Let's be friends blog hop

Welcome to the Let's Be Friends Blog Hop!


A blog hop is a set time frame for current or aspiring bloggers to find new blogs and quality content. It is a great way to make new friends and find inspiration! It is also a fabulous way to promote your own blog and posts.

Dear Friends,

What a day to celebrate! This is the 51st week of the Let's Be Friends blog hop! Thanks for joining us on this special day. Chelsee and Tiffany are extremely delighted to see the way this hop has grown and love to see your faces each week! 

Join us every Tuesday at 7am (MST). This blog hop focuses on content. LINK UP YOUR FAVORITE POST from last week in this fun content-sharing blog hop! I love the idea of blog hopping, but I love the idea of reading posts and quality content on new blogs I've never been to even more. Instead of simply linking up your blog button, you are now able to link up your favorite post you recently wrote. Have a delicious recipe to share, DIY tutorial, or heartfelt post? Share it with us! All hosts and co-hosts put up some unique and fun content from the past week. Make sure to check them out. P.S.- you may still link up your blog button and blog name, but it is encouraged to link up your favorite post instead. You will get more page views and interest if you do so! Some of the most successful blog hops I have participate in focus on content rather than just exchanging follows. You never know who will become a loyal follower or pin that delicious new recipe you posted!


The BEST part of this blog hop? Each week there will be a WINNER! That's right, each week we will choose one lucky blog to feature from the previous week's hop. This hop receives thousands of page views every week, so your blog will have the chance to be center stage for free. You must follow all the hosts and co-hosts in order to win. Only those who link up a specific post are eligible to be featured! *You must follow all the hosts and co-hosts in order to win.

The last exciting change is that the co-host spots will now be available to all sponsors of  The Dwelling Tree or Southern Beauty Guide. If you are interested in co-hosting the blog hop, email Tiffany or Chelsee about sponsorship opportunities and how to co-host the weekly hop!

***This weeks featured post from last week's hop:
Endless Bliss


Hey everyone! It's Chelsee!  This week I had the pleasure of picking a winner. Wow! That pretty much is the word that sums up my thoughts on all of the posts that were linked up last week. You all submitted amazing posts last week and they were all a joy to read. It seems that each week it gets harder and harder to choose a winner, but this week there was a post that really stuck a cord with me. I truly felt that this is a post that everyone needs to read.  

Tiffany is a 20 something, army brat, graduate from Louisiana Tech, that owns an actual Hedgehog! I kid you not his name is Flitwick and he is oh so cute! Her blog is mostly focused on her life and the ramblings within it. 

This post was very inspirational. Sometimes you come across these posts that just speak to you, and this one is no different. Tiffany last week chose to linkup a motivational post called "I want to be forever young." She brought up an interesting point about us all wanting to grow up so fast, but when we do that we miss the "good ole days" and want to be young forever. I think this is an idea that truly applies to us all. She said "I'm only as old as I feel" and I personally feel that this is a interesting way to look at things.  I mean who of us has dreamed of growing up? I think the real point behind this post is "Don't grow up too fast." Make sure you head over and read the entire post, it is definitely one that will put life into perspective! 

Keep posting awesome content! You make it so fun for me to read all your posts! If you can, please link up a specific post. It makes it easier for us to come and visit! 

*Remember YOU can be next weeks winner! :)
