Bloggy Friends

Hi all!  My name is Krysten and I blog over at After 'I Do'.

When Selma asked me to do a guest post for her I sat and really thought about what I wanted to write.  I tend to take guest posts far more seriously than the post I put on my own blog because, well, I don't like letting my blog friends down!

And then I started thinking about friends in general.  Over the last few years I've gone through some major transitions with friends and when I really started getting into blogging it was because I was feeling lonely.  And very quickly I started meeting people from all over the world that I began to call my friends.

When I talk to people that are not part of the blog world I feel like they don't quite understand how I can call people I've never met friends.  It's something that can't be explained, you just have to experience it.  In the year and a half that I've really buckled down with blogging I've met some amazing people that I love and adore.  Blog friends that maybe I've never met but nonetheless aren't any less important that the friends that I see from day to day.

I've seen some really amazing things happen because of the blog world.  And I've met some really amazing people.  I know I'm thankful to have made the friends that I have through this internet world.  I of course count Selma in that!  This blog world is all sorts of wonderful.  And the people I've met through it are some of my very favorite.

Who have you met through blogging?  Do you think you're a better person because of them?

Thank you Krysten for this terrific blog post!!
The blog world also changed my world and my view on blogs in general. I never thought I would say this but it is true. Blog friendships cannot be explained they need to be experienced! I so agree!!!!
I am so thankful Krysten helped me out while I am re-organizing my life these days....

...see? That's also what blog friends are for! :D

Thanks again girl!!! :D

Now go say hi to Krysten and have a blast while browsing through her blog. You won't be disappointed.

I must say, connecting to people through blogging really is a different game! It's a lot of fun reading about people you don't know and even more fun knowing they're halfway across the globe

I loved this guest post! It's so refreshing to know that someone pointed out that people who don't blog, don't normally get our friendships on here.

But I too, have made some brilliant friends through blogging!

What a great post! And yes, I couldn't agree more. The friends I have made with other bloggers over the years has been the greatest thing to come out of this whole blogging experience :)

Love this post, Krysten & Selma! You're so right, people don't understand the relationship bloggers form even though we've never met. I actually feel closer to some blog friends than I do people I've known for years! xx

I've met great people! People I have a lot in common with, and people I think had we lived a little closer would have a blast hanging out with in person. It's like pen pals on crack.

The entire reason I got into blogging was for the connections. It seems silly to most, but I truly have wonderful friends because of it. And I couldn't be happier about it.

Lovely guest post :)

Love both your blogs! Most of my friends aren't into the beauty and style thing like I am, so it's been great to find bloggers who are!
