Blogger Facebook groups are an amazing way to drive traffic to your blog. They’re filled to the brim with other bloggers learning, writing, and growing just like you (and me)! The only problem is…
There are over 100k groups for bloggers.
Ridiculous right? Every blogger in the world thinks a Facebook group is the next step in growing their audience. And they’re not wrong, it’s great – when used appropriately.
That’s why you don’t want to join just any ‘blogger’ group. You could end up in a group based on selling to you rather than providing resources, information, and genuine help.
To prevent getting lost among the blog group crowd, my list is compiled of groups that I’ve found build GENUINE connections + offer useful blogging tips and resources.
Lucy Reyes is BY FAR one of my favorite hosts – she’s active, helpful, and an all-around good person. She runs multiple blogs and has experience running lifestyle type and ‘blogger’ blogs like mine.
Newbie & Expert Bloggers Unite offers daily threads to help grow your blog, increase your blog views, and connect with other bloggers in your niche. Not only do you get to brag about your latest post, but you get to drop a link to your socials on occasion!
Within a week of joining, you’ll get tagged in a welcome post (I love these!), make sure you ACTUALLY participate. Take the opportunity to introduce yourself and your blog – who knows, maybe you’ll get a few new readers!
While writing this post, she currently has 710 members in her group – and it’s constantly growing! Hopefully, this means more niched threads!
*I like to mention group size to give you an idea what type of community it is. Obviously larger groups mean more opportunity, but it’s less personal. Smaller groups remain closer knit, but may not offer the same opportunities. This is why I try and share groups that have a variety – it allows you to benefit from both!
Ell Duclos’s group Boss Girl Bloggers is one of my absolute FAVORITES for finding others and supporting a community. Even though her group has 42k members, I’m still able to find other bloggers like me!
Her group is probably ranked #1 for problem-solving. Any question or concern? Don’t know what your next step is? Ell is typically the first to respond.
While she’s not as involved as Lucy Reyes, who I mentioned above, but she makes up for it in knowledge – which is a pretty fair trade-off.
Ell’s group focuses on Pinterest and marketing your blog by using smart Pinterest strategies.
BTW, Ell offers a Pinterest Growth Course for only $49. 10/10 would recommend if you’re looking for Pinterest help on a budget. BONUS: Taking her pinning course allows you exclusive access to her Pinterest with Ell Community.
While she does offer threads, they seem to be week-long rather than daily! Don’t sweat it – they’re still super helpful in getting eyes on your blog.
When I said you wanted a variety of group sizes to join, I meant it. Bloggers Collective has only 82 members at the moment – much smaller than both of the previous groups in the list.
Why do I even mention groups so small? I join blogger groups all the time and I will tell you that joining before they get big is so much better than joining after.
Right now, you have the opportunity to build close connections with the active members of the group, they become you’re supporters and you theirs. You’ll be connected on socials and learn from each others blog posts! It’s pretty great if you ask me!
Bloggers Collective offers daily threads to promote your blog posts and connect on social media – trust me, everybody wants that 10k swipe-up on Instagram and threads are one of the easiest ways to do it!
They also offer an exclusive Pinterest group board for those just starting out or looking to expand their reach.
Overall, Louise creates a wonderful and FUN space to talk blogging and bloggers – I’ve met plenty of bloggers in her space that I hope to be friends with for years to come!
I recommend Blogging Boss Chicks almost solely for their participation rate. I have yet to see one of their daily threads go unnoticed or ignored – which if you’ve ever run a Facebook group then you understand how difficult that actually is.
Hosted by The Rich Girl Blog, this group offers TONS of threads to promote your blog and get feedback on your posts. On top of that, she’s pretty active when it comes to the day-to-day.
I appreciate how well she treats the group too! She announces opportunities, freebies, and even her affiliate program (um, 40% earnings from ANY sale – yes, please!).
This one just so happens to be one of the mid-size blogger Facebook groups with only 1.9k members. The only downside I can find is that Ashley seems to be the main poster – not many members do more than participate on group threads.
That’s not to be consider a huge negative when joining due to all of her posts being EXTREMELY helpful and overall beneficial to her group members. Oftentimes, she posts about blogging deals, informational videos, and tips on how to grow your blog!
I’m talking pinterest, monetizing, keyword research, socials – you name it, she covers it. She’s the one who convinced me to write about 7 Passive Income Products You Can Make To Earn Money in 2020.
Her group is on the smaller side (only 237 members) but I don’t think there are enough words in the dictionary to describe how much value she offers!
*Re-reading this, I realize that I sound SO much like a fan-girl. Which I am of course, but maybe overboard? NO SHAME lol
Hannah’s group is probably the only one I recommend that doesn’t offer daily threads (she just started a few!) every day. Which is totally okay, I don’t think threads make-or-break a group, they just offer a whole lotta promotion opportunities for YOU.
Her group comes in handy for information and learning opportunities. I’ve never met anyone so knowledgeable and willing to teach as Hannah – and it comes through in her group.
If you’re looking for help growing your blog, this is 100% the group to join!
You might have guessed it – this is my very own group! I made it to create a safe space for bloggers to share their work, connect on social media, and learn from each other!
Right now, we have a whopping 95 members, which is not much. Still, we have a high participation level due to the willingness of our members and the connections we’ve built.
I’m hoping that as we grow, we continue to have amazing bloggers participate and keep the conversation going!
I host this group along with Valerie Ricard, a fellow grammar nerd I found in a different blogging group – I consider her one of my blogging besties! We aim to provide as much information and resources POSSIBLE to help you grow and monetize your own blog!
Not tooting my own horn – but I would consider my group one of the best blogger Facebook groups!
