While I hang out mostly in two or three of these Facebook groups, all seven have been great resources as I’ve been getting started. These groups have specific promo days, as well as special days for other interaction such as sharing goals, wins, social media links, etc.
I’ve got a spreadsheet with links to the Facebook groups and which day is which for the featured interaction which you are welcome to use!
Ok. Here are the seven Facebook groups in alphabetical order:
Adventures in Blogging: This group is run by Lena Presley Gott, who blogs at WhatMommyDoes.com. It was her posts that got me started in blogging and I’m thankful for her and the group! While this group is less active than others, the members are great about coming together and sharing advice.
Blog Beautiful: The group was created by Marianne Manthey of DesignYourOwnBlog.com. She has some great info on her blog and the interaction on this group is great. One unique thing is that Marianne holds office hours once a week for us to flood her with questions which she answers right then and there!
Blogger Insights: Run by Eden Fried of EdenFried.com, this is one of my newer groups. Eden has TONS of great resources, many of which are free. She and her co-host, Emily McGee, are super involved in the group and encourage great interaction!
Blogging 101: Created by Nicole Floss of UniquelyWomen.net, this is a great group if you are just starting out. Nicole has excellent guides that she shares with the group and with over 5,000 members, there’s a lot of questions/answers flowing through the group. This is where the “Search this group” feature is super handy!
Blogging Newbs: Jointly run by Becky Burgess (SplashOwlMedia.com) and McKinzie Bean (MomsMakeCents.com), this group has quickly become one of my favorites! With Facebook Live videos to talk about specific topics and great resources shared, the admins take a personal interest in the life of the group. The other members ask lots of good beginner questions and usually garner multiple answers.
Blogging with a Smile: This group is run by Chantel Arnett of ChantelArnett.com. With daily topic threads, there’s lots of interaction and Chantel is super involved with the group. I asked a question once and I had a response right away!
Women Winning Online: Created by Jennifer Snyder of WomenWinningOnline.com, this group is also one of my favorites. There’s a great energy about this group and good interaction. Jen does a Coffee Chat via Facebook Live every Monday.
These seven Facebook groups have been a huge boost to my new blog. Have you found other groups that you enjoy? Share in the comments!
