7 Certainties Of Blogging

My name is Mitch Mitchell and I’m many things. Today, I’m a blogger. I have 4 blogs of my own and have written for many others; still do in fact. I’ve been blogging since 2005 but for my most popular blog, I’m Just Sharing (which is this one of course), I’ve been writing for 13 1/2 years.

Only 2 of the people below are still blogging on a regular basis; who knows, maybe some newer bloggers, or bloggers I’m connected to who didn’t comment the first time around, will show up.

Whether you’re a new or regular visitor, unless you’re looking at the mobile speed version of this article or my blog overall, you’ll probably notice the little hovering ball at the bottom right. If you need to see it bigger, check this out:

This is the main logo for a content subscription site called Buy Me A Coffee. What it allows you to do is put a link you create on their website, then share it in other places.
