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 56th 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!

There are a couple of great giveaways going on right now at Southern Beauty Guide and The Dwelling Tree. Go check them out! :)

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

Hi everyone. This is Tiffany this week. Maybe it was the name of this blog post or the peculiar picture of cattle running, but I was very intrigued in reading this post. I am so glad I did! I will never forget my days working a catering job in college. I had always wanted to be an event planner, and then I started catering. I thought the job sounded so glamorous! Weddings, champagne, cocktail dresses- ah. Then I saw the real deal. Those event planners busted their butts. They worked the longest hours, mostly weekends, and were not afraid to get their hands dirty. They went from sneakers to high heels right before the event. They dealt with stressful scenarios ("Where are the flowers?!", "Why is the best man drunk?!"). It was an eye-opener! 

Then I got to do my own event planning for a health care company. It wasn't glamorous events. It was races- think the Muddy Buddy or a century bike race. Stress city. I said "goodbye" for a while to event planning. It was fun and amazing, just very different from what I expected. 

If you are interested in what an event planner REALLY does, check out this awesome post. I love reading what many of you do in real life, ha. It is so cool to hear about your other jobs and hobbies other than blogging! 

Lamm to the Laughter is an inspiring and fun blog written by Brianne. Brianne is an event planner, equestrian and traveler. Her blog is lovely. She writes about anything from a creme brulee recipe to thoughts on being the, ahem, "perfect wife". Go be her friend, already! 

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! :)
