Blogging Community and Friendships

This May I am coming up to 2 years of blogging. I am often asked about the friendships I've made through blogging and how if it's possible. 



At first I was very dubious about meeting people that I only spoke to over the internet, but when a meetup came about in Dublin by a well known Irish brand I decided that it would make the perfect opportunity to finally meet some bloggers face to face. Once my confidence grew I ended up going to more meetups and discovering that the lovely bloggers were open and such lovely and inspiring people.



I have made some amazing friends over the last two years, friends that even if I gave up blogging tomorrow we would still have that friendship. Not only do we have blogging in common we also have other loves and passions that we don't talk about in the public forum. It's always great to meet new people and learn from each others experiences. I've also found it great for Lillibug because now she has also made friends too. The community is fantastic for support and rallying around to help in anyway they can as well.

When it comes to meeting those you talk to on the internet I do urge you to be careful, I have been lucky to meet with other bloggers in a safe environment but also in a professional manner. Not everyone is as they seem. Make sure someone else knows (like a family member) where you are and who you are with.

But if you are lucky, like me, to find that the people you meet in person after building up a rapport online, you might just find some friends for life.
