The thing I've learned about blogging is that it's not about followers, it's not about page views, it's not about great writing abilities, or fantastic photography. While those may be elements, they aren't blogging.
Blogging is beach side sunsets, raps about dresses with Pegasus on them (aka, the pegadress), jealousy over whale bonding, late nights in hotel rooms, fireworks at Disneyland, and speaking in hashtags for an entire weekend.
Blogging creates relationships like no other. It's like I have this world wide collection of sisters. (And a brother or two... oh hey, Sam.) But honestly, it really does go beyond friendship.
And it's not even just about the blog friends you get to meet. Sometimes it's that one who always has the most genuine comments, or that blog that you always read and love but never comment on, or even simply just looking at your page views and knowing that at least one soul is out there taking the time to read what you have to say.
And in a teeny tiny nutshell, that's what I learned a couple weekends ago at Elevate. Blogging is so much more than some of the things we focus on. It's much more about creating relationships, sharing what's on your heart, and finding yourself in your words. And maybe that's how life is too. Much more about others and much less about the little things that are so easy to get caught up in. About following your heart and learning who you are and what you want to become.
What is your favorite experience that you've had with blogging? Who is your favorite blog friend/blogger you secretly stalk?
