Today I’m excited to discuss my current experience with the Bigs and Littles Blogging Network. Although I know the pairings are relatively random (one does provide where they live and certain specifics regarding their blog), the match that was made with Diana of This Imperfect Happiness couldn’t have been better. As this was the first time I was considered a “big”, I also have to say this experience taught me a little about myself also. What is stressed in Bigs and Littles is not so much that one person knows more than the other but the importance of connecting, not being afraid to ask questions, not being afraid to say you don’t know and learning from the experience.
Diana is a relatively new blogger who has been blogging since August of last year, who has a very similar content focus of what you would find here on How to Make A Life. She focuses upon learning to be happy in the moment and stresses that you can be happy even if you aren’t exactly where you want to be in life. I knew we were a great match when I found she had also written a post on How to Keep a Gratitude Journal. It was wonderful to be able to share some thoughts on what has worked for me, what hasn’t and brainstorming in regards to finding the right equation for posting. (Diana and I are both still working on that aspect of it) I am hoping that I’ve provided some guidance and support for her.
One of the greatest aspects of connecting with another blogger through this network is that you automatically feel you have someone you can connect to and ask questions of. At times it can feel uncomfortable reaching out to a blogger who you know only via their blog posts and comments.
I am still in touch with most of the bloggers who I have connected with via this Network and feel it helps to welcome new members into your tribe. Diana and I will stay connected as I’ve invited her to participate in my Self Care Saturday series (her posts are truly that wonderful) and we are considering another series together. If you are looking for fantastic blog to add to your reading list, you must add This Imperfect Happiness!
