Hello, again people’s of the internet! Happy February! How are we already 2 months into 2018?
Well, it’s that time of the month again! Today is the 6th addition to the Blogs I Love series here on Heather’s Ambitions! It’s hard to believe that we’ve made it this far! These posts take me days of researching and writing to produce but I love it so much. I love being able to give back to the blogging community like this!
Today’s question I asked all of the bloggers is ‘What is Your Favorite Thing About Blogging?’ I really enjoyed getting to read everyone’s opinions on this. They were all similar yet quite different at the same time and I can’t wait to share them all with you!
What question should I ask next month?
Let’s get started!
1. Milly Shmidt from Milly Shmidt
Milly was actually the blogger that inspired me to ask bloggers questions for these posts! I read this article by her: Ask the Blogger: How Did You Get so Many Followers? And, it just sparked my brain to reach out to bloggers more. I really enjoyed it last month and I can’t wait to learn more from all of these bloggers over the rest of 2018!
Milly blogs about writing – the ups and downs of being an author in a comical yet realistic way. Also, the abundance of cat gifs makes me smile so much!
Milly’s Favorite Thing About Blogging is:
“The friends I’ve made. To this day, my heart jumps every single time someone leaves an encouraging comment on my blog. They always seem to come at just the right moment when I’m sobbing into my hands after yet another rejection from publishers and agents. I honestly don’t know where I’d be without the blogging friends I’ve made here. I love them all so much for the unending kindness they have given me – not to mention the wisdom and expertise they are all so willing to share with a crazy cat lady like me!”

2. Lionelson from Lionelson N.Y.
Lionelson is a young adult blogger from Malaysia. I fell in love with his writing style and all of his tips about writing books and more. As an aspiring author myself, I love reading bloggers who write about writing because trying to become an official author is a really hard thing to do and it’s awesome to know that we aren’t alone!
Also, I really want to buy his book someday and read it. (You should totally check it out: The Ocean Hearth)

6. Asha from Adventures with Asha
Asha is a young, Texas-based, personal growth and lifestyle blogger. She writes about loving yourself, living a healthy life, and how to have an awesome blog! Her writing is inspiring, happy, and overall fun to read.
Asha’s Favorite thing about Blogging is:
“Blogging is an amazing way for me to connect with other people! I get the opportunity to tell my story, my struggles and triumphs and lessons and mistakes, in a creative way. And I get to take that story, and turn it into something that provides value and motivation to others! It pushes me to be vulnerable, and challenges me to put myself out there in a totally different way than I’m used to, and that’s pretty cool for someone who just “writes on the Internet”!”
