Making Blogging Friends and Networking by "Dishing it"!

14 Apr
I have had quite a few emails lately from new friends who are trying to figure out this whole blogging world. 
 https://i2.wp.com/goodalive.com/media/img/articles/friendships.jpg
How do you meet other bloggers? 
What’s the best way to network your blog?
I think the most important thing you can do is make some friendships. Get to know other bloggers. Talk about something that you love and have fun!
There’s a really great get-together today 
is having a “Dishing It” monthly party.

Amanda is an amazing girl. She is so talented and so real. She leaves the most thoughtful, nicest comments. I am so happy that I have gotten to know her over this past year. So head over to her blog and join in the fun. Make sure to go around and meet some really great ladies!
This month Amanda wants to know about our blogs
And, so — a little about me….
My name is Jen. I’ve been blogging for about a year and a half. My sister Wenderful got me started blogging. At first I didn’t think I had anything to say. But then I realized that this is such a fun way to share my creative side and meet new people!
https://i0.wp.com/www.saltlakemagazine.com/Blogs/On-the-Table/February-2009/Its-Jello-week/mellojello030.jpg
My blog’s name — tatertots & jello— popped into my head as soon as I thought about blogging. I thought it was a great title for a mommy blog because it combines two things that you don’t really make when you don’t have kids. And since I live in Utah, the jello part of the title was funny since Utah is known for it’s crazy jello concoctions.
I love to blog about anything creative. 
I love crafts. 
Burlap.
Creating something different. 
Bright Colors.
Good deals.
Having Fun! 
My favorite part of blogging is meeting new people and developing relationships with them. I love getting to know people and learning more about them. All of the talent in this bloggy world is just incredible!!!
If I had to choose one famous person to become my blog’s most devoted reader…. Weeeelll, I would love to have Martha read my blog. How cool would that be?!?!?!
Go over to Amanda’s and join in the fun! Meet some amazing bloggers!
Have a wonderful day!
XOXO

Cupcake Wreath Update

25 Mar
Thanks so much for all of your thoughts and prayers today! Hayley’s operation went really well. She is home on medicine and crutches, but feeling pretty good overall. 
#fullpost{display:inline;}

I added a link system to my Cupcake Wreath. I know there are many of you who have made this wreath, or a variation of it. And yours are so cute — I loved seeing all of your ideas and changes!  
I thought it would be fun for anyone who might want to make it in the future to be able to come over to YOUR blogs and see your spin on it.
I also found a new link system — one that has pictures, not just links! I am so excited to use it for the Weekend Wrap Up Party!! 
So link up — pretty please???
HERE is the link.
And, guess what I’ve been doing tonight? My 10 year old came home from school with a sore throat. Yep — Strep. 

I Hope you are having a great week!
XOXO
