Blog Hop - Let's Be Friends

I saw this on Lindsay's blog today, and I loved that it is a way to find/meet new bloggers and read some posts that those bloggers are sharing based on good content.

Now...sometimes, I'm dumb.  Sometimes, I'm technically-challenged.  Sometimes, I'm vocal of not necessarily abiding by blogger rules (so, I don't pay attention to them).  But...I'm gonna try with this.  I'm gonna see if I can jump into this blog hop.  I'm not even sure I'm supposed to share all of this...but Lindsay did, and I'm following her lead.  Although, Lindsay is a co-host.  Maybe she's supposed to share, but I'm not?  Hell.  I don't know.  I'm trying here, alright?!  If I didn't need to post all this...I'm alright with promoting positive bloggers, and that's exactly what these ladies seem to be.

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 125th 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!

The Lady Lawyer
Hello everyone! This is Chelsee. This week I chose this post because it is a cause that is near and dear to my hear! I have always been an animal lover and consider my pets my children/furbabies. I find so many go straight to dog breeders to get their pets when there are so many loving animals that are available for adoption. When I saw Brittany‘s post about why she chose to adopt I couldn’t help but relate to it. I have adopted more dogs than I can count, and each have become a part of my family. After reading adoption story about getting her “bundle of spunk” and reading her argument for adoption, I knew I had to share this with all of you. She is not the only one that has to change the channel every time an ASPCA commercial comes on TV, I too find I just can’t look at helpless animals. I hope after reading this post you are implored to adopt your own furbaby.
I love Brittany and her blog The Lady Lawyer. She has the cutest blog design and is a fantastic blogger. Don’t forget to head over and read this post and much more from Brittany!
Keep posting awesome content! You make it so fun for us to read all your posts! If you can, please link up a specific post. It makes it easier for us to come and visit!
Time to Link up!


  1. You are seriously the cutest/funniest/sweetest person! You didn't have to post this, technically, but fk, why not share and promote blogger love!! xoxo ;)

  2. I am all for sharing and learning about new bloggers but blog hops confuse me and make me dizzy.

    I do love me some Lindsay, though. Her dogs are *almost* as cute as mine (they're the same breed) and she's really sweet.

  3. Blog hops look like so much fun! Also a bit confusing for me. haha. But I am sure that is just me! I really need to start blogging regularly again! Then I can participate in things like that....if I can figure it out! :)

  4. I stopped by your blog today.


I love comments, and I enjoy our interactions. I respond via email, but if you're a "no reply blogger", I can't. Don't think I'm ignoring you!
