For years, ever since starting my first blog back in high-school, I’ve found myself gravitating towards this community even after several failed attempts. There was always something bringing me back – maybe the ability to share my writing with the world, maybe the feeling of knowing that this is something I have to do each day… But whatever it is, that feeling has brought me to this point. And over these five years, I’ve found that there’s a lot to love about blogging.
You hear it mentioned all the time as you’re reading blogs, but the community truly is one of the greatest thing about this little space. I’ve gotten to know some incredible women through this blog, and every time my e-mail tells me I’ve gotten a new comment sharing someone’s opinion, I smile like it’s the first time.
I’ve only been writing on this blog since April, and already I feel like I’ve gotten to know some wonderful women. I can’t imagine how much more this community will grow over the next several months and years.
Each time I find a new space I enjoy reading, it’s exciting to learn where they’re from, what they believe, what they do, and how they feel about the things I have strong opinions on. (read: reasons you should have an About Me page)
