This Weeks Questions:
1. What is the name if your blog?
The Thing About Joy :)
2. What do you love most about blogging?
The people I’ve gotten to meet. I’ve made some really good friends through blogging, its been so awesome! I’ve met girls from California and New Hampshire IN PERSON because of blogging. :)
3. Why did you start blogging?
It was a way for me to stay in touch with family. At the time I was living in Fort Worth with the hubs. We were all alone with our closest family 4 hours away. And we had just gotten married. It was rough.
4. What is something you’d want to tell someone just starting out in the blog world?
I would ask them why they are blogging? And then I would tell them to blog for themselves and no one else. Blog about what you love and what you’re passionate about. Don’t worry about numbers or people. If you have good content and interact and try to make new friends then other people will read your blog. Don’t be fake.
5. Biggest blogging learning experience you’ve had?
Mine is in regard to blog ad swaps. You need to be very specific when you’re doing this. Otherwise you’ll be giving someone a great ad space and they’ll give you a 100×100 spot at the very bottom of their blog that no one will see. (not cool) So be specific when you swap, it needs to be equal.
6. What are three blogs you love?
Well if you read my blog at all you know who some of my besties are. So I’m going to go with ones I don’t talk about…
Just stopping for a visit via Sunday Social.
I enjoy blogging for many of the same reasons you listed. It’s been wonderful to me new people over the last 8 years that I’ve been blogging.
It’s also awesome to still be in touch with people I’ve known over the years too.
It’s been fun visiting your blog.
thank you thank you! this totally makes my day!
