If you are a mental health blogger looking to get connected with other like minded mental health bloggers, then head on over to the Mental Health Bloggers Google+ community now. Right now, I haven’t summoned much of a following but I’ll be pushing this community very hard. I’m dead set on getting the word out. I’ll be making posts here about mental health blogging, creating new blogs, and getting noticed anywhere else where interested bloggers might be. My end goal is to create a positive movement for mental health awareness, which albeit bold, provides a special kind of motivation.
The idea of connecting like minded mental health bloggers in a place to freely chat and share thoughts, has a sort of momentum to it. I’m speaking gibberish but essentially, I can’t wait to attempt to build a mini community for people with mental illnesses. Yes, there are countless places on the internet to get connected with others who have a mental illness. However, I figure if I reach out to like minded bloggers long enough, I’ll have to at least get a few people involved in the community.
This is just the start. Crafting a community of like minded people who can relate to the mental health struggles of others opens new doors. There’s a greater chance of two very like minded individuals getting into contact and collaborating on something, anything. Being able to help others achieve something would be profound.
