If you are a blogger you may know of the importance of
being a part of a blogging community. If you are new to
blogging or a seasoned veteran there are some essential
tips that will help you become more involved with your
These six essential tips will help you to get the most out
of your involvement within the community as well as help
you to become a contributing member.
Blogging Community – Why You Should Be a Part of the Group
Most bloggers will pick a specific niche or a couple related
niches to write about on their blog.
When you do this it narrows down your audience obviously.
Having a specific audience in mind can help with writing but
what about when you target that audience and you don’t see
any fruits for you labor?
Well when you are a part of a blogging community you have
the ability to network with other bloggers who may be in
the same niche who can offer advice.
Having a community to fall back on can help you stay ahead
of the curve as well as provide a critical support group
that can help you to achieve your desired goals with
regards to your blog.
Blogging Community Involvement Tips
There are many ways to get involved with you community,
however I will share tips that will help you to get the
most out of being an active and contributing member of your
specific community no matter what the niche is.
Seek to understand before you judge. This saying holds
meaning to understanding other members of you blogging
community. In most cases blogging communities are on
social media sites like Facebook.
When you become a part of a discussion ask questions
to further understand what the member is trying to convey.
This will help you become a problem solver and before
you know it people will be directly asking you for advice
or your opinion.
Make an honest attempt to help one person a day. This may
be difficult and I can attest to the fact that being
a blogger is time consuming.
When you strive to help others you will begin to build
rapport with your blogging community thus allowing you
to ask for help when you need it.
A blogging community is like a cookie jar in a way.
You can’t always just take the cookies you need to help
bake them too.
Attempt to be a part of discussions. If you take the time
to become involved with the blogging community when there
is a topic that is being discussed it can do a number of
favors for your blogging efforts.
Most topics will bring up valid points in the niche and
possibly even fuel your creativity when it comes to
developing an enjoyable and valuable blog post.
Also, when you are a part of a community that discusses
many topics related to your specific niche you can keep
your ear to the ground with regards to fads and trends in
Look for ways to improve your community. Be a service
to your community. If you are a regular and contributing
member this will only help you.
Think about it like this: If there is a system that you
see could be improved or has some kinks that you can fix
talk with your community. Get their opinion or bring it up
during discussion or with community leaders.
Chances are if you are serious about improving the community
and it really is needed you will head up the changes
A blogging community is as much a resource as a tool.
Make sure your blogging community is a well oiled machine.
Make regular appearances to check in. Even if you are busy
and you know you are going to be busy make sure you can’t
poke in to help or let others know what’s going on.
If you know it will only take you five minutes to help
solve a problem do it.
People do not like when someone is never there and comes
out of left field who’s has been a “part” of the group for
a while to complain or act like they were never gone.
Getting on to let people know what you are doing or trying
to do will let people know you are there and help validate
your involvement when you may need help or have a valid
point to contribute to the community.
This is one of the most important tips I believe. Strive
to lead with value and be friendly and approachable. If
you are new to blogging or have been blogging for awhile it
is always nice for people in your blogging community to
know that you are approachable.
When you are friendly people are more apt to openly discuss
topics with you, offer advice and allow you to help them.
Being rude and pretending or making it appear that you are
always too busy or in a bad mood will most likely close
more doors for you than it will open.
Being a Part of a Blogging Community is Essential to Success
Having good content is not enough anymore. There is a lot
more involved with being successful as a blogger.
Being a part of blogging community will give you a tool
and a resource in tough times and always remember everyone
started with nothing at some point.
If you are not a part of any blogging communities I suggest
becoming a part of the Empower Network.
You will be a part of one of the best blogging communities
that I feel is out to improve everyone situation and if
that is a trait you can relate to you should jump in today.
