Reverb 10 - December 7th

December 7: Community 
Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?
well, this one is easy. I wrote my very first blog post on January 19, 2010, and it's been a steady uphill climb ever since that first post. it's not even possible to describe how much I love this blogging community. 

we're all just a group of strangers who love to write and share about our separate lives, and somewhere along our journey, we connect. we connect with each other and other people out there all across the world, those who live completely different lives from us. those who just decided one day that they'd like to start a blog, to document their every day or their week or their month. to document their crafts, or their cooking, or their homes, or their kids' achievements. 

it's amazing to me how complete strangers can come together because of one little click of a mouse and continue to become more than just a follower or a reader... they become friends and confidants by chance. I never ever thought I would have more than a handful of people reading my blog. it really makes you feel good to know that other people appreciate what you write, and it's nice to read about other peoples' lives and keep up with them through blogging. 

the women I've met through blogging are so incredible. they're all SO different in their own ways, and they've each got a little something special to them that makes them so unique. it's funny, because I feel like most of the ladies I communicate with through blogging, I would absolutely be friends with them in real life. but there's a handful that I probably wouldn't be... and that's not to say anything bad about them at all. I just think that we connect through blogging and ONLY blogging, and that's okay with me. because we may have one tiny little thing in common, is why we engage the way we do, and that's all that matters.

they're all so inspiring and encouraging, that I can't help but love them all in different ways for different reasons. I hope to connect with every single one of them more deeply in the years to come.

  1. So true. I've only been blogging since July and I've 'meet' so many wonderful people that I wouldn't have had the chance to connect with without blogging. I seriously love blogging much more than I ever that I would.


I love getting comments from readers, so thank you for being so awesome!
