When I started my first blog back in Scotland, I had no idea what I was doing. I published posts for my friends and immediate family, and wasn’t aware that there was an entire community of expat and travel bloggers I could connect with. I didn’t even consider that some of these women would become my good friends down the road, and honestly, I used to think that meeting people online was somewhat creepy. Ok, really creepy. Obviously things have changed since then.
I’m here to retract my previous sentiments and tell you that I’ve met some of my good friends online. In fact, I’ve met some of my closest friends online because of the blogging world.
And the thing is, we don’t have to be friends. We just are.
We didn’t grow up together and we didn’t go to school together. We don’t work in the same offices and most of us don’t even live in the same country, let alone the same state. We choose to be friends because we have the same interests. Most of the ladies I know, myself included, are involved in design, photography, PR, social media, etc, and we’re trying to start our own businesses because we’re motivated like that. Blogging has opened doors and created opportunities that we didn’t even dream of before we published our first posts on Blogger and WordPress.
We have the same hobbies and enjoy travel, writing, snapping photos, trying new things, meeting new people, cooking, and seriously, the list goes on. We have so much to discuss with each other.
I’ve found that bloggers are a special breed of people and that’s why we get along so well. And that’s also why I’ve met some of my good friends online. Some of my best friends.
Have you found this to be true?
