Blogging is hard. In order for our blogs to grow we have to put in hours of graft, master social media and get emotionally attached to our blog stats.
Given the fact that blogging is so tough we end up finding happiness in things that ordinary people would probably roll their eyes at.
Check out the blogger in the photo who has just realised that all her links on her latest post work! To an ordinary person this situation would not bring great excitement but to a blogger this sort of thing can result in a leap into the air and a shriek of joy.
Here at BlondeWriteMore we have compiled an exclusive list of things that will make a blogger goofy happy…
