Happy Thursday, friends! Today I’m continuing my Thankful Thursday post by talking about all of you! As always, please let me know what you’re feeling especially grateful for this week in the comment section below. This week I’m focusing on the blogging community!
Thankful Thursday: Blogging Community
Now that I’ve been blogging for just over a year, I’ve really gotten to know many awesome bloggers. It’s been great connecting and learning from so many different kinds of people. This community is very welcoming, helpful, and friendly. Here are some things I love about the blogging community.
- Helpful Tips: If I’m having site issues, technical difficulties, things are running slow, etc, there’s always someone there for me giving me things to try. I didn’t start blogging because I had a love for coding, running a site, etc, I started blogging because I wanted to write. When I feel overwhelmed at the technical side of things, there’s always someone ready to help and offer suggestions.
- Acceptance & Understanding: Some posts are really personal and vulnerable. There’s a real feeling of love and acceptance from other readers. The nice words of encouragement and people explaining their thoughts on big issues and small issues is amazing. I love how people can come together even when they have different views.
- Rooting For You: I never feel like other bloggers want to “beat” my numbers or want me to do worse than them. I really believe that blogging is very much a collaborative thing. Bigger bloggers often comment on smaller bloggers, there’s a lot of sharing of posts, and supporting on social media. It’s beautiful to see all levels and scales of bloggers coming together and supporting one another.
A big thank you goes out to all readers, commenters, bloggers, non-bloggers, family, and friends! I am very thankful for each and every one of you. I feel honored that I have this little space where I can share my thoughts and ideas with so many lovely people.
Thank you, Amanda for letting me think out loud today!
