Blogging IS a business
I started my blog as a way to get me back into the saddle on the road to writing again. Although I majored in Political Science in college, and now work in Real Estate (go figure), Writing has always been my first love. You can't choose who or what you love-it chooses YOU. And after years of fighting this love affair, I have decided to give in to its overwhelming advances.
Little did I know that on this journey into 'Blogdom', I would find it to be a little more difficult that I thought. Finding the words to write is rarely the problem...the problem with blogging is much more technical to me. There are templates, layouts, RSS Feeds, and much more complicated CRAP that I have yet to figure out. Its been months, and I STILL have not figured out a new blog design. But, "Be patient Eve.It will come" is what I tell myself every night.
Thank God I am the type of person who learns by watching others, and does not have a "Holier than thou" attitude. I have been very grateful to find Fabulous peeps who are willing to help me plant these seeds in which my blog and writing career will grow. So without further ado, here are a few of favorite mentoring peeps:
Ms. Jayne at This Bug's Life I call her my "Ride or Die Chick". Ms. Jayne and I go way back, and our love for writing has reconnected us after many, many years.
Kia at A Letter to Ovarian Cancer Okay, I am a little biased on this one, but Kia is my ultra-fabulous cousin who has blogged about her journey living with Ovarian Cancer. She is such an inspirational woman, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed when you check out her blog.
Alisa Bowman at Project Happily Ever After Alisa is a fabulous writer, and brings the very candid truth about marriage and relationships on her blog. She has also co-authored several books, and has given me great advice and feedback since "meeting" her on the net.
Christie and Lorraine at The Blogrollers These wonderful ladies joined forces by coming over from My Life-A Work in Progress and Ask Wifey to unite women in the blogging world. They are living proof that woman with like minds can be UNSTOPPABLE!
Jessica at Jessica Knows Jessica is the ultimate Marketing guru. Her business and marketing tips are The Bee's Knees, and she is always willing to help.
Nando at Nandoism Nando has helped me to increase my networking and marketing power. Always eager to help, and give feedback, his daily of Nandoism is a must for getting your Mojo back!
Those are just a few peeps that I admire and look to for inspiration on the regular. As I continue on my journey to establish the ultimate bliss in 'Blogness', the list will continue to grow and grow. Be sure to check out the fabulous peeps for inspiration.
