When I joined LDRBN I had no idea what was in store for me. I was nervous and somewhat excited, but also a little skeptical about the whole thing. My blogging was very amateur (it still could use some improvements) and I wasn’t sure how to really interact with others in the community whom I didn’t actually know, strangers. I stumbled along on the community site trying to figure everything out and meet other bloggers. It took me a while to really find my groove, but I’m so happy that I stuck with it.
Everyone in the community is incredibly kindhearted and honest. They show support, offer advice, and really seem to care about each other. I have grown to love these people so much that I can honestly call them my friends. These are some of the most genuine and sweet people I have ever met and they all have such great personalities. The community is incredibly dynamic and even if people disagree with each other they still respect everyone’s opinion or viewpoint.
One of my favorite parts of the community is that we get to chat about other non-LDR things. We have a variety of forum topics with new ones popping up all the time. Sometimes we create stories together, other times we discuss our interests in tv shows, books, or other hobbies. Everyone brings a lot of energy to the forums and there’s almost always at least one comment that makes me laugh.
But what really gets me…..is our common obsession with food! We share pictures and descriptions of “weird” foods for a certain culture and some other really awesome foods. You write about food? You’re the main attraction for the next few days, haha. These girls (mostly) cannot get enough of food posts!
I just wanted to thank all of the amazing members for making my days so much better. Whether they were with me at the start of LDRBN or are just joining in now, you are all incredible people. I’m so glad I’ve made so many new (long distance) friends! So Keep doing what you’re doing…I love you all ❤
