As someone who is new to blogging, it was refreshing to find so many blogging resources – and a whole blogger community who welcomed me with open arms. When I first decided to start blogging, about two months ago, I had no idea what I was in for. I knew about blogs and had read a few in the past, but I did not know where to start or what to do. It was a blogger friend of mine who told me: just start writing. That is exactly what I did, started writing, and I have enjoyed every step of this extraordinary blogging journey.
As I have started to build my blog, and find my voice/niche, I have discovered what I believe is the best thing about blogging – the blogger community. I have joined a few Facebook groups, Google + communities, and other networking outlets, and am finding fellow bloggers are the best group of people I have ever interacted with — in person and online. I also stumbled upon a wonderful learning community, The Blog Workshop, which has been an invaluable resource for understanding how to maximize my blogging potential.
The Blog Workshop not only offers a community of fellow bloggers to interact with, learn from, and work with, but they also have some awesome workshops (i.e. surviving SEO, blogging laws you should know) and a TBW university with courses on blog design, writing, business, and marketing). The Blog Workshop truly is a one-stop shop community for bloggers; where you can you network, learn, attend conferences, and more.
When I started, I had so many questions. Specifically about how to build my audience and monetize my blog. The workshops and conferences offered by The Blog Workshop seem like a great way to gain more knowledge and learn how to grow my blog into the success that I am hoping it will be one day.
