The 24 Best Blogging Resources {Link Roundup}

Okay, can I let you guys in on a little secret? All right, maybe not that little. This winter will be my 3 year blogiversary! When I started this digital journal back in December of 2010, I had no clue what I was doing. Absolutely none. All I wanted to do was inspire people with my story and who wanted their dream job {read my first ever post here. Man, I had a lot of excitement over being laid off}. I also had no idea how big blogging really was. Then I stumbled into a close knit group of amazing bloggers who I networked with, studied what they knew and who I still look up to and connect with.

Today I am sharing with you my personal resources for blogging. Many of these fine people are good friends, some I stalk weekly and others I want to get to know better. Truth: I haven't read ALL of these {yet}. Most of them, yes, and they have helped shape my blogging brain. Others I'm including as a bookmark for the future because when you run a blog, you should be evolving, growing, being more awesome daily. And I want to be more awesome. I know, it's hard to believe right?
