Last Saturday I spent the evening with a couple dozen Maryland area bloggers at a MomzShare event, a quarterly blogger gathering organized by Jennifer Gerlock and Lara Dipaola. I wasn’t sure what the topic of the evening would be, but knew that there would be food, fun, and friends, both old and new. The intrinsic value of these gatherings is in the interaction between these women who understand each other in a unique way. As bloggers, we do not need to explain to each other what drives us to blog, inspires us to write. We can talk knowingly about the desire to monetize or difficulty in doing so.
