    Just launched my blog last week and so far I love everything about blogging. The community is awesome and I’m hoping to experience a lot of these soon :)

    What a fantastic post! Hitting the nail right on the head, I have experienced most of this at some point. One thing you missed out for me is the weight you put on, constantly sat at your pc! I still have a long way to go as far as blogging is concerned, but I will not give up, love it
