The greatest benefit I've reaped from blogging has been the opportunity to meet some wonderful people from all over the country.Up until a few months ago, I owed most of my interaction with other bloggers to attending conferences. While conference are great, they only last a few short days so it's up to you to keep those connections alive.
That's where my friends Ruby of Growing Up Blackxican and Xenia of Raised By Culture come into the picture. They started a small Facebook group called #BlogLuv. In the basic sense it's a support group. A group of friends willing to read and discuss each others' writing, share blogging resources, and serve up some motivation and inspiration.
For Valentine's Day they organized a gift exchange amongst the group members. I was paired with Lisa Quinones-Fontanez of Autism Wonderland, a blog that chronicles her family's life with autism. My gifts from Lisa arrived just in time for the February 14th festivities and was a sweet addition to my week!
Thanks for being my Valentine Lisa!!
Wishing everyone a happy V-Day and reminding you that love is all around in many forms so bask in it.
