The Coffee Cluster is just starting to dip our toes into the blogging community, but so far we are finding it very supportive. We participated in our first blog party and it was great. Check out http://www.scaleitsimple.com. There were lots of neat blogs and bloggers who were so supportive, creative and encouraging. Plenty of liking, commenting and sharing at the party and of course coffee.
There was no competitiveness there – which we found a bit surprising. Really, people only have so much time and energy so where do they want to spend it? If they choose that blog, they are not spending time on my blog. So why would anyone encourage their competition? Oh right, we are bloggers, this is a community not a sport field!
There has been a shift in mentality to when I do well we all do well and that there is enough success out there for everyone and their blog (or whatever floats your boat). Can you imagine if the rest of the world were like bloggers? Sharing information freely, encouraging each other, being each other cheerleaders! No competitiveness as no need – we are a community and what is good for one is good for all. WOW what a world that would be. Let's take what we have as bloggers and start putting it out there to the greater community. We (bloggers) rock. Thank you and we are looking forward to doing our part in this fab group of individuals!
