Blogging Friends!

This is a scheduled post. I'm currently in Memphis still...
I began my journey into the blogging world in 2008. When I first started blogging, I didn't know anyone from my real life that was also a part of the blog community. When I would mention the word "blogging", I could see a cringe from some people. It was as if I'd said a dirty word. It wasn't cool. It wasn't the hip thing to do. But I did not care. It was a fun way for me to talk about my life and share my crazy tales and travel stories. Along the way, I've met some great women and rekindled some great friendships. 

So I thought, I'd share with you some of my long time friends who blog! You may know some of them, if not... check them out. I can vouch for each and every one of them: They're awesome ladies! 
First up, Erica! 
She's new to the blogging community but we've been friends since college. If that baby faced photo above isn't proof enough then I don't know what else to tell you! She's been reading my blog for awhile but finally started to share her witty personality with the world! Since she just moved to South Carolina... I see a road trips in the future! 
Next up, Miranda!
Miranda is a WV girl now living in Hawaii with her husband Shelby and son Tristan. I've known Miranda since high school. She's also got a new blog design business. Check her out! 
Then there's Amanda!
Amanda and I met in college. We were in the same sorority but I was entering it as she was leaving. We weren't really close back in college but once we both entered the blogging world we got a chance to know each other more! She's currently living in Florida and expecting her first child with her husband! 
Last but not least Mariah!
Mariah and I went to high school together and undergrad together. However we didn't become better friends until... blogger!! Now that's she back in town from graduating from dentistry school, I hope we can hang out and go on some Sephora shopping trips together!

So there you have it. That's just a sampling of some the great women I know in the blogging community!

Love it that you started blogging before it got cool! I totally waited until it was trendy - but mainly cause I had never heard of it before that! :)

Awww.. When I started blogging, it never occurred to me that it would gain new friends. Blogging was just a space online for me to write my thoughts and opinions. But then, all that changed. Blogging has given me the wonderful gift of friendship with some of the most sincere, honest, thoughtful people that I would never have met had I not decided to blog. Cheers to great blog buddies!

My friends always made fun of me for blogging until this one time.. we went to a comedy show.. and this guy came running up to me and was like .. "Misty, I am a huge fan.. i read your blog every single day! and started talking about different posts". I was IN SHOCK!!! He literally knew me just from my blog. My boyfriend looked like he saw a ghost and ever since then.. no one gives me crap!! HAHAHAHAHA
