More on Friends You Love and a Little Plea!

First of all- can you pretty please do me a tiny little favor that will take only seconds? There is a contest going on right now for a Type A Mom conference ticket. I'm going and really don't know anyone who is going. No one that I can say "Oh, I'll be fine and not be the awkward girl in the corner with no one to talk to."

But, you can help that not be me! My friend Ashley is one of 6 people in the running for a free ticket. But, she's not winning right now! OH NO!!!!! Could you please go HERE and click to vote for @anothermomof2?

Later today, BFF will go up. I've really enjoyed sharing my Blog Friend Features with you. When I pick someone for this, I think of a fabulous blog that I read...but also one who is more of a regular commenter here, too. A friend of sorts. And it's been a way for you to meet a new friend and for them to meet you...

But, even though I'm going to continue that, I'm also trying something new along with the other ladies of Friends You Love and we want you to play along, too!


This month is about building friendships and making our existing friendships stronger...

We challenge you to dig into your "followers" list and find a follower you don't know well (someone who doesn't comment regularly) and reach out to them and ask them to do a guest post on YOUR blog. Then, come back on Monday, link up with your guest post and have your new friend (guest poster) link up as well!

We will be running this blog hop every Monday this month, so spread the word, spread the love, and darn it, go make some new friends!

LOVE this idea! I just posted a blog hop today with the intention of finding out more about some of my followers. I never thought to just go ahead and click on their picture and find those that don't comment and reach out to them...

I voted! I love the idea of your BFF! It's so great! :)

I'm going to look into my followers now and find someone to do a guest post.

Hope you have a wonderful day! :)
