Welcome, SITSahs!

That’s right, ladies. I’m bringing out the welcome mat for you. (Don’t worry, my blog isn’t as cheesy as this opening sentence.)

I’m just super excited to have my SITS Day today.

For those of you who don’t know about SITS, it’s a community of 40,000 women bloggers dedicated to supporting one another by leaving comments and learning about blogging. The name SITS comes from the concept that the secret to success is in the support.

And today is my today to be showered with blog comments.

Funny, today is also the day I’m teaching my first beginner’s blogging class. A cool coincidence, I think.

I have to admit, I wasn’t quite sure I wanted to join the SITS community at first. I mean, it sounded like a lot of time commitment to visit the website each day, comment on the featured blogger post, visit the featured blogger’s site and then comment over there as well.

Finally, I decided to give it a try. I saw that many of the bloggers I followed were involved with the SITS community.

Then, I realized why.

It really is the support. I mean, I can’t tell you how many amazing blogs I’ve found through SITS. Blogs written by genuinely amazing women. And guess what? When I comment on their blogs, they come back and return the favor. They share their stories on my blog after I share mine on theirs. I learn from them. I laugh with them. I even shed a tear every now and then. It’s pretty cool.

So, I hope you’ll take some time and have a look around. If you’re new to the site, you might want to start here. You can also find out more about me or my blog. Feel free to browse my categories up there in the purple. I also write a regular Philanthropy Friday series where I feature people and businesses that incorporate philanthropy into their everyday lives. I’m always looking for people to feature or guest post (hint, hint).

Oh, and I just had my online blogging class listed yesterday on Skillshare. Another cool coincidence! It’s called “How to Write Blog Posts That Build a Community.” What I love about it is that anyone can register (for only $10!) and rather than being lectured to, you actually get to interact with your classmates and get feedback about your blog, all while learning, finding new blogs and gaining readers. (You can check out the class here.)

Make yourself comfortable. If you like what you see, I hope you will subscribe via email (options in the left sidebar) or connect with me on social media (buttons up top). I’m going to respond to each and every one of you, even if it takes a few days.

Thanks for stopping by!
