When Life Isn't Complicated Enough

The Blogging Community

The Blogging Community

When I set out on my blogging journey last year I was totally unprepared….unprepared for how much bloggers support each other.

‘In Real Life’ there are so many pressures maintaining friendship, trying to ensure you make those important meet ups for coffee or lunch. To fit the odd night out round the financial constraints of bringing up a family along with the time to actually go and enjoy yourself in the first place instead of stressing about what time the first morning wake-up call will hit.

Blogging is such a strange creature, we all know so much about each other through the interaction we make via our media platforms and by the blog posts we read.  However we have in most circumstances never even laid eyes on each other without the use of a screen.

As a new starter last year I was overwhelmed by the support from even the most established of blogger, by the time they were prepared to give, their helpful words of wisdom and by their continual support they still offer. These people probably know me better than I know myself.

I have also been lucky to be part of a group of newbies that started around the same time who I have clicked with on such a level that these people I don’t know what I would do without them.

The blogging community understands that social media is a large part of my life and don’t make me feel I have neglected them when I have been away from my screen to actually live my life.

After some recent very sad news in the blogging community that has rocked me to the very core. I now understand what this crazy community have to offer, a level of support that I have never ever come across. Even bloggers who you have never had direct contact are there sending support and doing what they can. If one blogger hurts the rest hurt too.

I think unless you have been part of this craziness it’s difficult to comprehend how strong the friendships actually are.

I am so pleased I made this choice in my life and that I have such an incredible group of friends. I look forward to the friends I have yet to meet and the craziness in which is yet to happen.

Thank you bloggers!
