Connect with Dallas Texas Bloggers - Great List of Amazing Bloggers in the DFW Area!

This semester (yes, my family lives life in semesters) it has been incredibly difficult to travel to blogging conferences to meet new bloggers, but the Texas Bloggers group on Facebook has been incredibly helpful by helping me (Jennifer) connect with others who are like-minded family bloggers.

These individuals (and groups) are some of the best writers, photographers, and videographers I have ever had the pleasure of "meeting". As an academic, I would like to give kudos to each of the bloggers listed below because they are definitely "rocking" social media!

Please connect with them, follow them, link to their blog, etc. They are absolutely outstanding and I hope to meet most of them one day! :)
