Why I’m an A Lister!

I found the coolest new blog and if you’re a blogger, you have to check it out!

The Blogger’s Concierge is the place to be if you are a blogger that rocks! They are looking for A-List bloggers (A Listers), and in order to become one, you need to tell everybody what makes you an A Lister.
So without further adieu, here’s what being an A Lister means to me, and why I consider myself one:

An A Lister…shares her knowledge and experiences, offers advice (when asked for it, of course!), and isn’t afraid to ask questions. In other words, an A Lister is helpful and supportive, and isn’t afraid to ask for help when needed. It doesn’t matter if we are talking about blogging, being a mom, about health, or anything else that you talk to your friends about. A Listers are there when you need them.

An A Lister…develops relationships. You do this by visiting blogs and leaving comments that have meaning and heart (not just “Great Post!” type comments), responding to comments they receive by email, learning about their readers, joining forums and communities, and just communicating in general.

An A Lister…is honest about life, feelings, emotions, and doesn’t shy away from the “difficult” or “hard” stuff. Nobody’s life is perfect. No woman out there has it all together 100% of the time. An A Lister isn’t afraid to talk about the things that are not comfortable. An example is a post I wrote called I Don’t Feel Like Being a Mom Today. My readers keep coming back because I’m not afraid to share the good, the bad, and the ugly with them.

An A Lister…sincerely appreciates the time and effort it takes for her readers to visit. I write posts that are thoughtful, and well put together because I don’t want anybody to feel like I wasted their time. The only reason I have a growing blog is because my readers appreciate my writing and keep coming back to show support. I owe it to them to make it worth their while.

So what do you think? Am I an A Lister? What else do you think makes an A Lister that I might have missed?

And if you feel that you are also an A Lister, write a post about it, head over to The Bloggers Concierge and link up!

And so it goes…
