Ohhh, winter is hard for me...a sort of SAD meets crazy, with a hint of PMS and perimenopause thrown in to make everything all blur together.
A while back, I saw something on Facebook that made me think. What I read asked the question, and I'm paraphrasing now, because I can't seem to find the original post and the above mentioned condition makes it hard for me to focus and remember important things like that. Blogging....is it competition or camaraderie?
And I got to thinking.
Of course I didn't want to admit that yes, blogging is competitive. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want my blog to be wildly popular. While I'd love to brag and say I make gobs and gobs of money blogging, the reality is, and this may come as a shock to some of you, this blog generates very little income. Oh sure I get perks, which I love, love, love. But stacks of cold hard cash, um, not so much.
Instead, what I've created here, is a place where once strangers stop in, have a look around, enter the current giveaway or just leave me some good, old fashioned comment love.
Through online blog hopping and in person blogging events, I've met some wonderful people. Who make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Yup, I'm a star!*
And that folks,
So what do you think? Do you find blogging competitive or have you discovered some great new friendships that you may have not otherwise formed?
