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.
What a day to celebrate! This is the 53rd 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!

Hi Lovelies. This is Chelsee. I have to say picking winners gets harder every week. You all never disappoint when it comes to presenting us with amazing posts to read. I had the pleasure of picking a winner this week and I found one that I think you all will enjoy reading as much as I did.
Kristyn is an excellent writer that blogs over at Carolina Fireflies! I swear if there is something you believe may be a grammatical error she is the one you should talk to. She blogs about pretty much everything. I first met her in a sorority linkup that we hosted together along with others a few months back called, “Greek is Greek.” Make sure you head over and check her blog out. Who knows she may ever be one of your sorority sisters!
Her Post, “Motion of the Ocean: Best of #THEBACHELOR Tweets Week 5” sparked my interest from the moment I read the title. Being a fan of #THEBACHELOR I was super excited to see what tweets she picked out, I found that she seriously picked some of these best tweets ever. I never realized that so many people felt so strongly about the show. Thanks to this post I now know the true meaning of “Motion of the Ocean.” This is actually a weekly post topic that she has on her blog each week to correspond with the latest Bachelor episodes. I am personally a fan of the show and so this post was right up my alley. Basically she shares her favorite tweets about the latest episode. I know that when I was reading them I was laughing pretty much the entire time. The great thing about her posts each week is that if you missed the episode the tweets provide you with a mini re-cap of the episode. This is the first week that I read this post and I know that I will be tuning in to what she has to say in the future!
Thank you all of the amazing posts that you linked up. I know Tiffany and I both enjoy reading about your lives. I know I can’t wait to read what you all
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! 🙂
