This post is inspired by my new friend http://louisem.com. Her post was about the 12 benefits of the 30 day blog challenge and I wanted to share 3 of the benefits I am experiencing.
When we talk about social media we are talking about communities. The Blogosphere (don’t think that’s really a word but sounds cool!) is a community. Here’s my 3 benefits.
1) Being part of another great community. Think about what you do in your own community. You get involved. You meet new people. You reach out to others. The operative word is You! You are lending a helping hand to others as they are offering you a helping hand as well.
2) Support. You get an incredible amount of support from people you have just met. It’s not about competition. It’s about support and encouragement.
3) Friends. By “you” putting yourself out their you make friends from all over the world. You get to experience scenery you wouldn’t have otherwise been able to and “visit” places you couldn’t visit. It’s a world wide tour!
Here’s a scene you may not get to experience in person.
There are many other benefits I’ve received but these are my top 3. It’s amazing how you learn and grow when you put “you” out there.
Are you in the 30 day blog challenge? What has been one of your benefits?
P.S. To my other “supporters” who have commented on my sites I want to give you a HUGE hug and say “Thanks”!
