Remember when I shared this Q&A post about blogging? You guys asked how to build a blog and gain new readers and I mentioned participating in various blog hops when I first started blogging as a way to "meet" new friends and find new blogs that I enjoyed reading.
Well, for the next two Tuesdays, I'll be co-hosting the Let's Be Friends Blog Hop so you can join in, share your favorite posts, and make some new friends and followers!
It's easy to participate- just follow the directions below!
And if you're here visiting for the first time, welcome! I'm Heather, and that studly guy standing next to me is my husband, Matt. You can get to know us here, see places we've traveled here, find new recipes here, or find ways to keep us with us here.
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 73rd 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!

***This weeks featured post from last week's hop:
Hi everyone! This is Chelsee this week. How was your 4th of July? I hope you all relaxed a bit and spent some time with your family! Thank you all once again for continually linking up at our blog hop. It is such a fun time and I am so impressed each week with all the amazing posts. Please continue to link up an actual post instead of your blog. We want to keep reading your content and it makes it more fun to pick a winner!
About that... onto the winner!
I admit I am a
makeup lover and for the life of me I always buy organization stuff but can never have enough of it. I mean if you don't understand just how much makeup I have just look at my Instagram. Yes I am a makeup artists so I have a small reason behind my makeup obsession. Needless to say this post was one that I was so glad to see last week. If you are someone that needs to find makeup organization then you understand how expensive and irritating it can be. When I came across Jaelan's blog post I knew I had a winner winner chicken dinner. I mean who knew that makeup organization was so lose by! I personally love watching and reading vlogs/post about makeup organization, due to it giving me tons of ideas.
Jaelan posted a very detailed post depicting before and after her makeup organization and all I can say is "WOW." This post just shows what amazing transformation can come from a bit of organization. What specifically caught my eye was that she got a steal on these organization pieces considering I buy from Muji, which I am sort of ashamed to admit due to how expensive an order can get. I felt that since I am someone that deals with this issue that others may be facing the same situation and in need of assistance. So I thought this was the perfect post to share with all of my makeup loving friends! I hope you head over and check it out and find some new makeup organization ideas that will work for you!
Jaelan is a relatively new blogger who blogs about life and I highly suggest that you all Go check her out. She is quick at responding to her followers comments and truly helpful, which I truly admire. I just love her posts and can't wait to read future post from her.
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!
*Remember YOU can be next weeks winner! :)
