Once upon a time there was a blogger who was too timid to reach out to find readers. It's quite possible that when she started blogging, this blogger told no one about her blog for several weeks, except her husband and her very best friend.
This blogger has a history of starting a project, say, knitting. She'll dump $50 into yarn and knitting needles, confident that she will soon be the world-master of knitting. She'll shout from the mountain top, "LOOK!! I KNIT NOW!!" Then two weeks later she'll decide knitting is hard, and she'll give up. Unfortunately when people ask her a month after the fact, "How is the knitting going?" she is forced to reply, "Knitting? Oh. I don't do that anymore."
She did not want blogging to be one of those projects.
Six months after starting her blog, this blogger started talking to others about her blog. Now she had a handful of readers, her friends, family, and for some reason Marianna Annadanna. Although this blogger has been reading other blogs for the past five years, she didn't realize until now that, "Hey! Having conversations through comments is fun! I'm going to stop my practice of lurking on blogs, and actually leave some comments."
And she does.
After three more months of blogging, this blogger starts to think, "Hey look, Twitter. Maybe I should Tweet."
Clearly social networking is NOT this blogger's strong suit.
But, tweet she does, and is encouraged by SarcasamInAction to tweet and tweet and tweet some more.
Now between commenting on other blogs and Twitter, this blogger garnered TENS of loyal readers. She also gained some friends.
She and two of these blogger friends, Marianna Annadanna and SarcasmInAction, found out they had much more in common beyond blogging. Cheese. Beer. Traveling.
And they decide, "Hey, there are probably LOTS of others out there who are just like us. They blog about life. And whether we are mommies or daddies or cat-owners or none of the above, we are all witty, clever, and just plain fun."
"We should have a place to hang out," these bloggers said. "We can spread our cheesy talents all over the internet!" Because clearly the internet doesn't have enough smart-asses.
So, they went to work creating the world's foremost arena for cheesy happenings. For cheesy bloggers. Bloggers just like YOU.
