The Truth about Blogging

Screen Shot 2014-05-18 at 8.53.15 PMSometimes people find out I have a blog (actually 2 but one is for my business and isn’t as much fun:) and they kind of give me a look that says – whatever!!!

I don’t blog for money – GOOD THING!!!!

I don’t blog for stats!

What I didn’t know when I started blogging was that I would “meet” some of the most incredible people that I’ve ever known.  At this point, I can’t imagine not spending part of every week (sometimes every day) with these amazing people.

Really, it isn’t just the blogs, it is the people behind the blogs that makes my heart happy!!

I have learned that this little space on the internet where I share random stuff, my fitness life and running career, family overload and various personal information is an outlet and a place where I can be 100% me for better or worse!!!  There are lots of great days and then some days that are just OK.  Every once in awhile there is a day that completely sucks.

On those down days I have seen so much support from many friends who I haven’t met in person (YET) but they still take the time to reach out in numerous ways.  (I’m not going to list specific people here because there are so many – I need an entire post to thank everyone!!!)Screen Shot 2014-05-18 at 9.02.30 PM

There are people who think that you can’t be friends with someone that you only know online but I 100% disagree!

I don’t have the words to begin to describe what my online friends mean.  I said something to Chris and he even said, “They are great friends.”  Plain and simple and exactly right!!!!  

Hopefully I will be able to meet more and more of these incredible ladies (and a couple of guys) but even just continuing to know them this way is incredible!!!
