What’s been your favorite part of being a member of The Blog Societies?
Being accepted to TBS was on my blog goal list for 2 years. Then, I was fortunate enough to attend The Blog Societies Conference in Charleston. It was a game changer for me and I’ve seen great gains in my blog. The community is so amazing and supportive as well.
