I remember reading a post a long time ago about finding your blogging circle. The idea being that a group of close knit bloggers regularly promote each other's posts.
I totally over thought it, and had visions of approaching strangers asking if they wanted to form this blogging inner circle. I wasn't brave enough to do that!
It's only recently I realised that your blogging circle isn't forced in this way. It comes about when you chat to bloggers on social media, and via your blog comments and get to know each other. In other words, exactly the same as real life friendships work.
It's good to have this circle. Generally, you do all retweet each other, but it's so much more than that! You chat to each other, bounce ideas off each other and generally feel less alone as a blogger.
It's another example of how great the blogging community actually is.
I'm not going to list the people I class as blogger friends, because I am sure to miss someone off! Suffice to say you all know who you are! I would just like to say a big thank to you all for the support, sharing of posts, and above all else, the chats and laughs!
