The Best Groups for a Blogger to Join Now

It took me a little while to find a community of bloggers I could connect with, but once I did….it was like a whole new world opened up!

 

If you are a blogger – new or old – you should know about these amazing groups. There are these Facebook groups for bloggers to connect, learn, encourage, inspire…it’s just amazing and exactly what I was looking for. Not only do the women in these groups help me learn and grow as a business owner, but they really are a source of support and community that is sometimes lacking when you are home all day. There are MANY groups and I encourage you to try a few and see which ones fit your needs.

 

Not every group is for every personality and that is OK. You will know when you find the right group for you and where you are in your business.

Here are some of my favorites:

 

BLOGGING WITH HEART

 

 

 

I may be partial, but this is my absolute favorite blogging group. I started this group because I saw something missing in the world of blogging groups. I wanted a group of women only bloggers, who focused more on helping each other and making genuine connections than on competition. I have made some great friends in this group and look at it as way more than just a blogging group. The support is amazing, the women are kind, helpful, and truly there to help one another. It is a joy to be part of it.     JOIN BLOGGING WITH HEART HERE.

 

GROWING SOCIAL MEDIA FOR BLOGGERS

 

This group was originally started by my sweet friend Christina at The Whole Cook and she did a phenomenal job at creating a community of women who are friendly, helpful, and fun to be around. She recently stepped down and handed the group over to Megan, who is continuing to provide a great group for ladies looking for support and growth along their blogging journey.  JOIN GROWING SOCIAL MEDIA FOR BLOGGERS HERE.

 

 

INFLUENTIAL MAMAS

This group was started by Inez Bayardo of For The Love of Mom. The tagline is “a support and promo community for mama influencers” and it lives up to its’ name. The group also have smaller, niched down groups that are offshoots of this larger one, so you are sure to find one that suits your needs. Inez is super helpful too! JOIN INFLUENTIAL MAMAS HERE.

 

 

I’M SO BLOGGING THIS

 

This group is run by Brittany Ashmore and is such a great group of women! They do have some social sharing threads, but it is more for community. There are some amazing Instagrammers in here and women who are rocking the whole branding thing and working with big name companies. Plus, it is just a super fun group to be part of! The rules are pretty simple – be kind and don’t link drop. JOIN I’M SO BLOGGING THIS HERE

 

 

WOMEN WINNING ONLINE

This group was started by my friend Jen Snyder of Women Winning Online. She has created a great community of women here. The tagline for this group sums it up perfectly! This group is more about community and education than social sharing, which is definitely needed as a blogger! JOIN WOMEN WINNING ONLINE HERE.

 

BY HIS GRACE BLOGGERS

Carmen Brown and Natalie Venegas started this group together and it is amazing. If you are a Christian blogger, you want to be part of this group. The support and connection among members is truly hard to find anywhere else. Not only do you get support and education for your blog, you get prayed for when you need it and women to come alongside you when you are struggling. JOIN BY HIS GRACE BLOGGERS HERE.


 

I am confident that you will find your perfect community in one or more of these groups. I personally have been blessed by each one, in different ways. Like I said before…try them out and see which ones fits you and leave if they don’t. Having a blogging community makes ALL the difference in this crazy adventure!

 

Do you have any other blogging communities you love and recommend?

    I love being a part of groups like these, but I really wish more real engagement would come from then. I do not get many genuine followers, but even one matters!

    Facebook groups are SO beneficial, and I’ve gotten so much out of them! I did find that I had to be careful, though — I once joined way too many and became overwhelmed!

      That is a great point. Too much of anything can be problematic, even good things. I get to the point of information overload and know I need to take a step back. The good thing about these groups is that you can turn off your notifications.
