Today is my SITS day. If you don't know what that means, you should definitely go find out. I have been with the SITS girls since 2009 and I am a BIG fan. If you are popping over from the SITS girls site - welcome, welcome!
I am on their site at least a couple of times a week and I get a lot of my traffic from their Saturday Sharefest, an event that I never miss. They have a wonderful community of more than 40,000 bloggers who are all very supportive of each other on a daily basis with these featured bloggers.
They also have tons of tutorials and articles about absolutely everything you'd ever want to know about blogging and social media. It really is a wonderful resource and I love that they spend all their time trying to support us bloggers in our work. I think that's what makes them one of the most popular sites in the blogosphere. And they're just all-around awesome people. I am a very loyal person and I believe in showing respect and appreciation to the people who support you. If anyone has ever been in my corner and been a great supporter of my blogging efforts, the SITS girls are the ones.
They also sponsor live conferences all around the country. I enjoy them so much that I've been to THREE of them starting with their initial event - SITSCation (Las Vegas) and then two of the Bloggy Boot Camps - in Phoenix and St. George. I almost went to a 4th BBC last year in Las Vegas, but I couldn't make the dates work.
Here is a fun little graphic showing some of the wonderful friends I have met at the various SITS events I've attended. These are some seriously amazing ladies, and many of them are real superstars in the blogging world, so they are definitely terrific resources to answer questions, involve you in cool projects, and teach you everything you need to know about being a better blogger.
If you ever get a chance to have your own SITS day, or attend one of the Bloggy Boot Camp events, I hope you will take advantage of it. In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite posts for your viewing pleasure.
