The best thing…

So its that time of week again when the BritMums Blog Prompt has gone live!

There are 2 prompts again this week, and as usual, I like to complete the challenges given.

So, the first prompt is:

Blogging Prompt: What is the best thing that has happened to you as a result of blogging?

Well, this is simple, and perhaps a little cliche, but it would have to be the array of people that I have met!

Blogging opens up a whole new world out there. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. I have made some lovely “friends” through it and really wish I had done it sooner. There are some fantastic bloggers out there, and brilliant groups for bloggers to share and promote their work.

If it wasn’t for the infamous Twitter, I don’t know whether I would have got in to blogging. I tried it a few years ago, but didn’t feel like what I had to say was worth anything. Sometimes, I still feel like that, but I feel more confident to just post for ME and if anyone reads it then great, if they comment, then fabulous!

I love reading other people’s blogs, and getting to know a lot of people I wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to interact with.

So, for me, the best thing about blogging has got to be the amazing people it has introduced me to! (and of course….BritMums)

    I agree with you completely. There are some fantastic people and blogs out there. I've read about other's having horrible comments left but I've been lucky so far and everyone has been lovely.

    It might be a cliche, but connecting with lovely, like-minded people is a huge benefit of blogging. Glad you found encouragement through twitter to keep going with the blog. Now that I've found your blog I'm looking forward to reading/seeing more from you =]

    Ooh, lovely. Great to find you via BritMums and I'm enjoying this too – with all the millions of people in the world it's great to “meet” some with whom to share a giggle and tougher times too.
