Kelley from 

Kelley and have have become bloggy friends over the last few months. She is one amazing lady and has so many fun things on her blog. 

Bloggy Friends...Meet Kelley

Happy blogaversary to my sweet friend Jill!  I am so excited to be here today during her special celebration!  My name is Kelley and I blog over at the Grant life.  Over there I share crafts, recipes, a weekly link party and lots of stories about babies.

I have been blogging for a little over a year now and one of the things that I love most is the genuine friendships I have made.  Yes.. I'm talking about bloggy friendships.  Today I'm going to share a few tips on how to make friends.. in blogland!  

Don't be afraid to reach out to a blogger.. no matter how big or small.  
Bloggers are people and they have feelings and emotions and common sense just like the rest of us.  If you have a question, comment or want to work with another blogger then email them!  The harder part is saying no to a request from a sincere person.

Find a community
There are tons of different ways to connect with bloggers that have similar interests or similar location.  Facebook and twitter are the main two social media outlets that bring people together, but there is bloglovin, hello cotton, linkedin and many more.  

Help each grow
Once you find someone that you connect with help each other grow as bloggers.  If you need to promote an event, your shop or a guest post ask your bloggy friends for help first.

Keep in contact
This one may be one of the harder ones because sometimes life happens and we spent some time away from the blog world.  Make sure to keep in contact with your bloggy friends and check in on them if they go missing from the blog world.  Some of my good bloggy friends dont even have blogs anymore but we still chat through email.  

I know these may sound silly by they are what has helped me grow as a blogger and as a person.  My blog friendships have strengthened my real life friendships.  And I cant wait to meet some of my blog friends in person!

Thanks again Jill for having me during your big one year celebration!  Hope yall come check out the Grant life and say hello!

Those are such awesome tips! I have made many bloggy friends and will use these tips to help make more!! Thank you so much Kelley!

Hi!!   For those of you that do not know us, we are two sisters, Cari and Cortnee, who blog over at Two Sasters and create handmade kids shirts and bows over at CGCDesign:)   Aside from going away to college, once we moved out of Mom and Dad's, we haven't lived more then a few miles apart. 

"Saster" is a term that was coined by just sounds so much better then just plain old "sister"...but don't worry - it has the same meaning:)

Cari, is 14 months older and lives with her 2.5 year old daughter and hubby.  Cortnee and her hubby had their first child - a little girl - just two weeks ago:) 

On our blog, Two Sasterswe love to start our week helping promote handmade items on Mondays and end it by hosting a TGIF - Share what you Did party!  In between we love to write about crafting, saving money, and as of more recently, blogging / technical tips.
