8 Facebook Groups Every Blogger Should be A Member Of

If you’ve ever been on Facebook before – okay let’s rephrase – when you’ve been on Facebook, you’ve likely noticed how useful groups can be. They are a great way to chat with a particular group of friends, or even to connect with like minded strangers. And if you’re a blogger, they can be a great way to connect with various groups of people in the blogging world. Whether you are looking for design help, for connections to cross promote, or for Pinterest boards to collaborate on, Facebook groups are a great place to start looking. They are free and really easy to use and see right in your newsfeed (where we know you’re already spending hours every day, let’s be honest).

Over the past few years of blogging, I’ve slowly been coming into contact with more and more bloggers, and some of the best connections I have built have been through Facebook groups. Though they can be hard to find if you don’t know what you’re looking for, there are some really great communities out there. Though some people think that blogging is competitive field, I think it’s one of the most supportive and friendly communities I’ve ever been a part of. I love all of the various blogging and entrepreneurial groups I am a part of, and if you’re just starting out, or you’re looking to build your connections, I highly recommend them. If you’re not in any groups yet, you’re missing out on a really great community and chance to build your blog, website, or business. Here are some of my favourite groups.

Inspired Bloggers Network Promos Link Ups and More

I love this group because all of the threads are laid back. I love the daily post comment and share threads where you can post your link and then comment or share a few others, rather than having to do every link in the list. It’s a great way to get more eyes on your posts, especially if you write a blog like mine that is geared towards bloggers, since everyone seeing the list is a blogger.

This group is like the parent group of the one above. This group was created as a place bloggers could connect and share stories, ask for advice and help, and support each other. The other group was started since this group was getting overflown with promotional threads. I love this group because there are so man members and you can always find answers to what you’re looking for.

#GoIndependent

This is a fairly new group that was made to accompany Regina’s free ‘Go Independent’ course in August. I’ll admit I’m behind in the course right now but it’s so amazing, and people are constantly sharing revelations and how much they love the course in the group. There is a huge support network in the group and it’s a great place to go to for encouragement.

The Freedom to Freelance Community Project

This is a great group geared towards encouraging entrepreneurs to ‘take the leap’ and start freelancing. They are daily promotional threads like Blog Post Thursday and Tweet Tuesday, and tonnes of support among members. Leah also runs a series that profiles people who have made the jump to freelancing, and all of their stories are really inspiring.

I like this group because it is a serious, no-fooling-around type of promotional group. If you want to promote your blog and get more eyes on your content this is the group for you. But, don’t be fooled, it takes a lot of work because you have to give some to get some. By posting your link in a thread, you are obliged to follow the rules of that thread and share the love.

Blog Society

I love this group because it’s filled with creative entrepreneurs who are genuinely supportive of each other. Plus the cover photo is pretty so it keeps things super stylish. It’s pretty loose in terms of rules and you can post whatever/however you want for the most part, and your queries will be answered by some really great people.

WordPress Help for Beginners

If you’re just starting out with WordPress, and even if you’re an advanced WordPress user, this group is a great one to be a part of. It’s really what it sounds like, people ask WordPress questions and others try to help them. WordPress itself has great support forums, but this is a great place to go if you’re looking for some more flexibility and personable answers.

Pinterst Collaborative Boards

This group is a great way to find group boards to join on Pinterest. Group boards are a great way to extend the reach of your content beyond your immediate audience and followers. Many group boards have thousands of followers, and while we may only have a few hundred, pinning to a group board puts our content in front of many more eyes.

So, once you get a second, go through these groups and join the ones you think suit your needs. Heck, why not join them all? You can always leave any groups that don’t inspire you, though I think that most of these will!

  1. Thanks for the tips, I just joined a few of those groups. Some blogger told me to share my articles on groups and on pinterest, but I didn’t know the details of it. You actually shed some light on how it’s done. Thanks, I hope I can grow my website traffic from this.

    I’m a portuguese blogger and it has been quite easy for me to discover facebook groups created by portuguese but I want to interact with people all around the world so this will be helpful! : )

  5. What a fantastic list, joining a few of these – I’m part of one or two smaller groups like this and find them really effective for getting eyes on content!

  6. Thank you, this list was helpful. There are so many groups and sometimes I can get overwhelmed with the thought of joining. I will defiantly join these groups!

    1. Thanks for reading Victoria! I agree, sometimes they can get so overwhelming. My advice would be to join a lot at first. Then over time you’ll see which ones you use and like, and which ones you don’t. Then you can delete those ones and stick with a few that really work for you and your needs!
