Big Daddy Kane released a rap song back in 1989 titled Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy and in the blogging world this relates really well to blogging friends.
Makin’ blog friends ain’t easy! It’s either who you know, who you are, where you’re from, or how many views you have. The blogging world can be as cutthroat as Mean Girls, because you got all of your different groups of cliques that stand out or just refuse to let people in.
This blog world is rarely about the fact that you know what you’re a kick ass person who I just want to hang out with outside of our blogs. You know to talk about our significant others being a 7 year old boy or his cluelessness that the hamper is on their side of the room for a reason (hint: put your clothes IN the hamper).
Recently, I attended a workshop with Helene in Between and The Southwest Bloggers Society. She made a very poignant statement in her presentation, have a blogging buddy. Let this be your person who reminds you that sometimes blogging is stupid, but you really really really enjoy it. After sitting around and thinking about it, I realized that I’ve got PEOPLE. Strong, intelligent, heartfelt women who get me and are living in the same judge free zone.
I’m lucky for what Ware is the Vodka?!? continues to bestow upon me. The events are fun, the free drinks are delicious, but the camaraderie takes the cake!
P.S. Don’t mind that you have seen our epic selfie numerous times. It’s the highlight of my life right now!
