When I started this blog, my thought process was "I like to write. Blogging would be fun!" So I started a blog. I was sort of surprised to realize that eventually people other than my friends and family were reading it, and it has slowly grown over the 10 or so months that I've been writing. What I didn't know when I started was just how much there is to know about running a blog. From design to networking, to Search Engine Optimization (I still don't really know about that one...) there is so much out there to know. And I have found that it can be really hard to learn it on your own.
So, when a blogger I follow posted that she and other like-minded bloggers had formed a "Blog Alliance" called Eclectic Six, and started a forum for bloggers, I headed over to check it out. It's exactly what I was looking for. A community of bloggers ranging from very experienced to newbies like me. A place where you can ask questions about blogging and people actually answer you. And truthfully! There's tutorials, help with design, sharing of opportunities, and most importantly a community of other bloggers to draw support from.
And the best thing is that since the forum is just starting up, it's not intimidating to join. It's small and supportive. But of course there is strength in numbers, so I definitely encourage you to head on over and check it out. See you there!
