We Blog…Therefore We Are. The 4 ½ Top Reasons to Blog by Elizabeth Cassidy and Annie Hart

One of the things which has truly brought joy to me during the Become a Blogging Maniac program is to watch people who have never blogged before literally become famous through blogging.  I have also greatly admired the people who have totally “gone for it” big time by partnering up for co-blogging events, blog talk radio shows and much more.

Today, I want to share with you a great blog post co-authored by Annie Hart and Elizabeth Cassidy. Before 2009, both women did not own a blog, and they are now…as we call it…blogging maniacs.  It has been a sheer joy to work with them over the last few months.

We Blog…Therefore We Are. The 4 ½ Top Reasons to Blog

This blog is posted on Skirt!®. I am not sure how many of you know about Skirt, but this is a big deal!  Skirt!® is a nationally and locally branded Web site, magazine and book publishing company.  They are far reaching and are represented in 23 local markets.  So, Elizabeth is one of their bloggers (Coaches on the Edge), and she brought in Annie as a guest co-author.  Now that’s cool!

So, here’s a bit about these two women…they are smart, funny and just downright engaging.  You need to check them out!

In closing, I just want to reinforce that we are so much stronger when we partner with people.  Annie and Elizabeth’s blog is truly a reminder of how powerful partnerships can be.  If you are blogging or in business of any sort, and you are trying to fly solo, my request is that you reach out to someone today to build a partnership.  It may just change your life!.

  1. Love this! Bea you really brought to light the beauty of collaboration and sharing. It has been my delight to know you and all the other amazing people in your blogging network. I agree that we truly need collaborators and elizabeth is fabulous! Guess what? I’m going to be a blogger for Skirt! now as well!

  2. Bea,
    You have been such a source for inspiration and your patience with the likes like me surely makes you a candidate for becoming a living saint! You are one in my book.
    I was so pleased to meet such incredible people in the Becoming a Blogging Maniac course and was thrilled when Annie and I started to talk outside of class and decided to collaborate on this blog.
    Thanks for improving our vision on the world at large and giving us the tools to get our voices out there.
    And now we got Annie at Skirt!.
    in a word or 2, you rock Bea! 🙂
