Adventures in parenthood can sometimes feel like a solo act. Lots of parents have turned to blogging to keep their sanity in check and also share great tips and advice to others. Even though it seems like there are a lot of blogs out there, the reason for blogging can be a little different for each parent. Today marks my sixth year for blogging, and what a journey it has been. Like many, I wrote to a “black hole,” not knowing if anyone else other than my husband read my posts. Then a few years later, brands started “knocking on my doors,” which to this day I feel honored and blessed to experience their products with my family and friends.
What I didn’t expect when I first started blogging was the community of others bloggers that I would build. Starting a blog enabled me to build a network of entrepreneurial women that helps fuel my success and energize my days. There are many networks out there where you can connect with brand to bloggers, but I have found the greatest success and friendships with Facebook Groups. Facebook groups are an absolutely fabulous way to meet other women who inspire and give you the drive to take your blog–and life–to the next level. I have a few groups that I am a member, and they serve different purposes. Some are they to share knowledge, others share opportunities and lastly, there are groups to help share your content. The one thing that all these groups share is that every member wants you to succeed.
In the current “dog eat dog world” that blogging has become, I encourage you to join a Facebook Group, so that you can see that not every blogger is out there for herself. There are many people out there wanting you to be the best, as it helps the whole blogging community. Good luck on your journey, and please link up below!
