I love blogging, it’s a great hobby, business and keeps me busy. I remember starting a blog back when it was pretty new and I had no clue what I was doing. I wasn’t even sure if there was any way of monetizing it accept affiliate links and really wasn’t even sure I was doing that right.
Back then, it was just something for me to do and learn but never really got far. Since then, I have had a hand full of blogs and learned something with each and every one of them. But I will tell you, now, I think blogging is awesome!

Blogging is a great way to meet new people whether it be online or in person.
You might meet new people because your in a blogging tribe, go to a blogging conference or just to help and support each other while blogging.
I have met some wonderful people online and some have become great online friends, such as my blogging partner here at 2 Chicks Blogging. We help each other with blogging and share each others posts on social media. We each both have our own personal blogs besides this one and help each other out a lot.
