10 things I learned from blogging

I've been blogging for a while now.  I'm not famous by any stretch of the imagination.  I'm not even looking to make money off this blog (gasp).  I just enjoy writing it. 

This being my 600th post I thought I would share with you some things blogging has taught me.

  1. There are some amazing and fantastic blog writers out there.  They make me laugh, they make me cry and they make me want to come back for more.
  2. Comments are like crack.  I can never get enough of them.
  3. Blogging is better than therapy.
  4. Blogging has helped me learn things I never thought I would be able to do.  Among them:  changing my blog from two to three columns and how to make my very own blog header.
  5. People actually stop by regularly to hear what I have to say.  (This one still boggles my mind).
  6. Digital pictures are more useful when you blog.
  7. Friendships can bloom from blogging.  This is something I never really dreamed about.
  8. Blogging can encourage you to do more.  More reading, more writing, more walking.
  9. I am not the only mom out there who sometimes feels overwhelmed, under appreciated and disrespected.
  10. When we blog, we are never alone.
Thanks for stopping by.  This post was inspired by Mama Kat's Writing Assignment.  Stop by and see what everyone else is talking about.

Learning new technical skills via blogging - now that is an idea I can get behind. {*grin*}

I have to agree, it seems like there are only a handful of non-commercial bloggers that last for the long haul.

Congrats on the 600!
