What is the absolute, best thing about blogging? Nope, it is not the countless hours spent putting together posts and scheduling social media contributions. It is not the continuous need to learn new things. It is not even when a post goes viral or is picked up by a big media outlet (Although, this is much more in the ballpark).

The Absolute, BEST thing about Blogging is all the supportive fellow bloggers that are out there working hard each day. Since my earliest days of regular blogging, I have been astonished at how kind and helpful other bloggers have been. I have never experienced that in any other industry before. Turf battles, holding back on giving out helpful hints, and trash talking are pretty rare occurrences in the blogging world and that is so refreshing.
On the whole, us bloggers are passionate about our craft.
From the get-go, other bloggers have been instrumental in the improvement and advancement of my blog. Here are some of the best blogging community resources that I have found thus far.
1. The SITS Girls–I found these ladies first thing out of the blogging gate. On the SITS site, you can find links to all sort of fantastic articles on topics covering all aspects of blogging. They even have section that will walk you through all aspects of the site if it is your first time visiting. Also, I absolutely love The SITS Girls Facebook Group. Great interaction and connection with other bloggers and exposure to tons of helpful hints.
2.Elite Blogging Academy–I signed up for this academy looking for some tangible ways to improve my blog and utilize my blogging time effectively, and I found something so surprising. Just as valuable as the course material itself (implementing has led to 30% growth in my daily blog traffic and climbing) has been the interaction that I have had with other bloggers who have also taken the course. There is nothing like getting to have access to a forum and Q & A s where you get to learn about how to tackle challenges that the newer blogger all the way up to those individuals who get 100,000 plus page views a month face. The Elite Blog Academy is only open for enrollment a very few times of year and for 2015 only once which is between April 14th and April 21st, which means it fortunately is open now for a short time. I have been given access to an exclusive code that will save you $50 off of enrollment. Just use code SARAH.
Some of the best money I have ever invested in blogging!
3.Google Plus-I know that Google Plus as we know it currently may be morphing into a new form/service over time, but I am making the most of it as it is today. In fact, I would bet that I will be using whatever it morphs into, as well, because of how much I love what G+ has done for my blog. Aside from its tremendous search engine benefits, G+ is a wonderful place to discover and converse with other bloggers and find people in your niche. Also, be sure and explore Google +’s communities for folks who share like blogging interests.
I sincerely hope that these blogging community resources are helpful for you and I wish you all the best in the continued growth of your blog. I would love to hear your comments about blogging community resources that you have discovered
