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,

Welcome to the 48th Let's Be Friends Blog Hop!

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!

For the past 47 weeks the wonderful and lovely Mandi at All My Happy Endings has been hosting with us. We will all miss her sweet face here each week dearly! She has been amazing! 

With that, I am excited to say big welcome this week to Chelsee at Southern Beauty Guide as our new host. Please say hello to her! She is an amazing gal and blogger and I am looking forward to her being an integral part of this blog hop!

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:

This week I stumbled across this great blog- Such a Mama! Ann blogs all about her life and the many projects she does with her children. She has some awesome crafts on her blog! 

I really loved this post about melting crayons into shapes using ice cube trays. My toddlers chubby little fingers love different shapes and textures, so I thought this was a brilliant idea! Ann and her son in preschool made these together and she was able to teach him how to bake and talk about the process of melting. I love crafts and projects that are teachable moments for children too, teaching them a combination of math, reading, or science! 

Thanks Ann for this colorful and fun tutorial. Go check her blog out! 

Her blog focuses on many other things like stocking your kitchen with essentials and other great recipes. Go check her out! 

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

*Remember YOU can be next weeks winner! :)
