Your blogging buddy gets it. They understand how hard it is to have a blog. They know what it is like to sit in front of your laptop and write absolutely nothing all day. They understand that it is a lonesome business. They also understand that feeling when someone likes, comments or shares your work. It’s like having an workout friend – the one who gives you reason to get up and put your trainers on. A blog buddy can help keep you inspired and motivated or maybe they are just better at blogging and can help you fine tune your work.
It is really important to feel understood by someone who knows what you going through in this industry. You could do this with anyone but there is a big difference – a blogging buddy actually cares – because they are doing the same thing as you. If you are a blogger then you are familiar with rambling on and on about your blog and blogging in general with your family and friends only for them to stare at you all confused – but that won’t happen with a blogging buddy because they won’t judge you – they understand and appreciate your enthusiasm, drive and obsession because they blog too. They won’t compete with you because you don’t have to compete with one another. They will have the same goals as you – to grow.
