I was recently asked by BlogFrog to write about who influences me online and in blogger communities.

If you’ve ever chatted with me one on one about blogging, you know how important I think blogger communities are to make it in this amazing space of the world wide web!

As a blogger, I love to share my interests, introduce my readers to new brands and products, and build conversations around what I’ve learned about blogging along the way with my peers. My goal is to influence others, in a positive way.

So many bloggers influence me day in and day out and have a profound influence on my life:

Kristen influences me to be a better mom

Amy influences me to be a better business woman

Kim influences me to share

Bridget influences me to be a better cookie decorator and embrace sugar

Callye influences me to think out side the box

Shaina influences me to be a better cook

Amanda influences me to be a better with my camera

Jen influences me to be creative

Marla influences me to eat healthier

Sandy influences me to encourage others

Dara influences me to get fit

Teresa influences me to be happy

and they all (and many others) influence me to be a better friend.

I love each of these bloggers along with how balanced and authentic they are.  None of them have ever claimed to be perfect, and that’s why I trust what they have to say. 

It’s bloggers like these, who are influencers with vibrant communities, that brands love to work with!
