    Thanks so much for this! I am a new blogger and have been looking for recommendations on education and groups to join: everyone that I have met thus far has been very welcoming, so I’m excited to continue on!

      Thanks, Lydia! Blogging is a full-time job in itself, but it’s one of the most enjoyable I’ve had.

      Thanks, Heidi! It is hard work, but it’s enjoyable so that makes it worth it. Turning me into a bit of a workaholic though!

    I’m a newbie too, hello! Your 4 hours a week comment hit home – totally more like 60, you are right! Never worked so hard in my life! But it’s great! Thanks for the Facebook group info – just started thinking about that although totally bogged down in Pinterest at the moment. My blog is only a week old. Keep up the great posts 🙂
