Blogging Community

07:00:00


A few weeks ago I was reminded just why I love the blogging community on Twitter.


I wrote a post, The Girl That Lied, and the support I received for this was so overwhelming that I cried. My post was shared & shared, I feel like every second notification was someone sharing it which at first made me extremely nervous, but the kind words that came from these people had me tearing up. They showed me that there really is good in the world & that there are those out there who know how to build each other up instead of tearing each other down.

I received messages from people I had never spoken to before and now talk to on a regular basis. People sent me tweets saying how much they admired my strength and courage, you have no idea how much these words have stuck in my mind. When I'm feeling down I remember these people, their kind world's will stay in my heart forever.
The blogging community gets a lot of flack sometimes, with posts being written about how there's no support anymore and it's a dog eat dog society. But I have received nothing but amazing support from it, through so many things, not just this post.

When another blogger attacked me as a mother, bloggers gathers around me and lifted my spirits again. When a blogger had the audacity to speak of my son in a blog post, bloggers came to my side. When I received hate from another blogger, spreading lies and rumours about the kind of person I am and making up "facts" about me in a blog post about the blogging community, bloggers stood with me. For every one rude, immature person out there spreading hate and causing drama, there's about 1000 more who are there, ready, willing to support and help out.

These girls/guys who rallied beside me, who have lifted my spirits and shown me that support really is still out there, they will never know just how grateful I am, not only for their kind and heart warming words, but for the fact there's still some good in the world. I always try my best to help others so it's amazing to know there are people out there willing to help me in my dark times.

The blogging community is amazing, I urge people who feel like they can't make friends online or haven't been feeling the love to reach out, join chats, spark up conversations with others because trust me, there are people out there who will welcome you with open arms and show you the love in the community.

  31. The community is one of the best things about blogging. It's so nice to know that even though there are the few trolls out there, the number of good, uplifting people is so much higher. I'm sorry people were cruel to you. There is no excuse for that.
