Every time I attend a blog conference, I’m adamant about the fact that I’m not attending to learn anything new. “I’m just going to hang out with friends,” I tell anyone who will listen, because this blogging thing I do is just a silly hobby, right? Truthfully, though, I always learn something or at least confirm the things that I already know, and not in a waste of time sort of way, but a positive, sigh of relief sort of way. Blissdom especially has a way of leaving me feeling uplifted, empowered, and worthy.
Blogging isn’t a useless waste of time, whether it’s my hobby or my business.
These friends I’ve made on the Internet are real.
I’m a talented writer and storyteller.
I’m a photographer and I’m pretty, damn good.
I am enough.
And SO ARE YOU.
