Q. Let's talk about the positive side of blogging! How has blogging influenced your real life in a positive way? (not related to books or reading) Have you learned to be organized or are you more social now for example?
A: The positive side of blogging! Yes, amidst all the deadlines, net drama, blogger drama, pressure that you put on yourself and overspending there is a positive side. Many in fact.
1. New projects and creative outlet. Blogging has given me a chance to express myself in various different ways. Not just in writing, but in the design, features and events I participate in.
2. Feedback. If I want to vent either on Twitter or personally to someone through an e-mail, I'll more likely than not get some kind of feedback. Either if it's just to say someone is listening and understands or they like the earrings I've just made.
3. Twitter. And speaking of Twitter. If it hadn't been for my blog, I probably would not have opted to sign up for Twitter. Twitter has not just come in handy for blogging and meeting people, it is also a fast way to get information.
4. The people I've met, either in person or online. This has got to be the absolutely most positive aspect I've found in blogging. I have met so many awesome people through blogging, Twitter, book signings, and conferences. Many people have been so incredibly gracious, kind, and supportive that even though I have not met every one of them, I would probably do anything for them.
