Let’s Be Friends Blog Hop is now Live! Come link up!

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 194th 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 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.
Let’s Be Friend’s Blog Hop Guidelines

Hi everyone! This is Tiffany this week! Posts about health and wellness always draw my attention, and I love this post about juicing from Happy Chaos Family! I have always thought about juicing but have not tried it. I love the idea of all of those antioxidants in my system! We do make smoothies, but we do not juice yet. Might have to give it a try!
Make sure you check out Happy Chaos Family!

Unique work from home job

I work from home. I love it! It hasn’t always been this way, though. Working from home has it’s own unique challenges and struggles. It is amazing to be able to work in my pajamas, drinking coffee from my cozy cup, in the nook of my living room. I love being my own boss, and therefore setting my own schedule.

Some of the difficulties making decent money working from home and being an organized and take-charge person.

Becoming a virtual assistant is an awesome way to make money from home! VA’s have tasks such as: uploading blog posts, creating images for blog posts, answering email, scheduling social media content, and more. Do you know any VA’s or have you ever tried it out?

Sound like a match made in heaven? 

Tons of small and medium businesses hire virtual assistants so they can focus on the core work of their company. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a VA, you should check out the book, The Boostrap VA by Lisa Morosky. Lisa Morosky is a seasoned blogger and writer.  I was happy to review this book at a time I was interested in diversifying my at-home work. Right now I don’t have too much extra time to take on becoming a VA, but I had thought about it for a while.

I really enjoyed reading this book and learning about what it entails to be a VA because the book is incredibly thorough and gives ideas on what industries use VA’s, how to be a great VA, what supplies and technology you will need to start your business, and myths about being a VA. There is an awesome section that helps you write your business plan!

Between blogging and selling essential oils from home, I am a huge advocate of working at home. I love it so much and like sharing ways women can work in the comfort of their own home!
