So you might be a blogger and see something about a professional blogging association. You might be asking yourself-why join a professional blogging association. Well, I joined an association and it has been one of the best decisions I have made since starting my blogging journey.

I am a proud member of the International Bloggers Association. If you write a blog, you can become a member today too. The day I received the International Bloggers Association Award of Excellence in Writing and Design was a big day for me. While I had to apply for the award, I never thought that my blog was far enough along to actually receive an award. You can tell from the placement of my award seal that I am very proud to display it.
