Blogging’s Good – Lewisham Blogger’s Meet Up

LBL BloggerSo now it’s official blogging is good for your mental health!

Blogging can help you feel less isolated, more connected to a community and more satisfied with your friendships, both online and face-to-face, new research has found.

The research, from Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, found after two months of regular blogging, people felt they had better social support and friendship networks than those who didn’t blog.

You can read the whole paper here.

Speaking of which I’m now very much looking forward to the meet up at the end of this week.

In case you’re not a Facebooker the venue is The Royal Albert and I’ll be there from about 8 o’clock.
