If you’re following me on Social Media, you might already know about the little new exciting thing I’ve been working on during the summer. But I’ve never properly introduced it here, on the blog, and I think now it’s the right time to do it!
How the idea was born.
When I first started Blogging, I didn’t have a clue about what I was getting into. I had the weirdest questions about tech stuff or just random questions and I didn’t know how to get any answers. After scrolling through Pinterest I came across a Pin that was talking about “Facebook Groups for Bloggers”. I joined a couple of them, and it wasn’t long until I understood how powerful they are and how they help you grow your blog.
So after being a member of quite a few blogging facebook groups, I felt like something was missing… Most of them had “follow for follow” or “like for like” threads mostly, others were mainly about questions, others were more “bussinesy”… It was missing the sense of community. So this idea was bugging my head for a long time to create my own Facebook Group. But if you know me, I like to push back things due to my busy schedule, so I was always postponing it.
This summer though, I decided that it was the right time for me to sit down and focus on my new Facebook Group. So after a good braindump, I had a kinda better idea than just a Facebook Group. I wanted to create a community between more platforms. I mean.. each one of us has a blog or two and quite a few social media channels on which we share different things. So why not gather all these people together and create a COMMUNITY? Or actually something better… A TRIBE!
So what is actually “The Blogging Tribe”?
The Blogging Tribe is a community of Bloggers who want to Learn, who want to Connect and who want to Grow their Blogs. In this community you will find the motivation you need to achieve your blogging goals, you’ll make valuable connections with other bloggers, help each other grow, learn and share your journey. I’m a blogger for about a year and a half, and one thing that I know for sure about blogging is that every win and struggle, big or small, matters. And I wanted to make sure that this community will focus on every win. Because Blogging is a really amazing experience, and when you have the right people around you it’s even more awesome!
The Blogging Tribe is not just a Facebook Group. It’s also on Twitter and on Instagram. I realized that when you’re in a private Facebook Group you can ask questions more freely, and since it’s private the connection between the members is different. It’s more like chatting with your friends. But even though this is really cool, most of us use Instagram and Twitter daily, so why not connect with other tribe members there and enhance this whole community experience? It’s exactly like you do with your besties… You’re following each other on Social Media but you also have that private group chat on Facebook or on Viber when you talk about different things.
So that’s what The Blogging Tribe is. We’re a community of besties who also love to discuss our favorite subject: Blogging.
Who is The Blogging Tribe for?
Everyone who has a blog is welcome to The Blogging Tribe, and everyone who thinks of starting one. It’s pretty much for Bloggers at all stages of their journey. So if you are just getting started with your blog or you’re struggling to get your blog noticed or you want to collaborate and meet other bloggers you should definitely become a tribe member!
In The Blogging Tribe, we will help you to step up your blogging game, get support, learn new blogging strategies and interact with like-minded bloggers which I think it’s the most important thing.
What the future holds for The Blogging Tribe?
I already started building the tribe since July 20th, but haven’t officially announced it here so this will be the official “launch date” for our Tribe.
I have a lot of ideas for this community but I’m open to any suggestions or your ideas that will help to make this Tribe even more powerful. Our main goal is to help each other. I strongly believe that you get what you give so in The Blogging Tribe we give help and we get help.
For our Facebook Group: We focus on tracking our goals, promoting our latest blog posts, getting feedback, asking questions and sharing our tips and tricks, collaborate and of course connecting through our blogs and social media. Our goal for this group is to get 300 members by the end of the year and we focus on quality over quantity. Because this is how you get things done.
For our Twitter Account: On Twitter, we focus on promoting blog posts and new people’s accounts. I found a lot of my loyal blogging besties on Twitter, and I believe that this social media platform is the best to find new blogging friends. So the idea of this account is to promote the Blogging side of Twitter. Followers is not an important goal here, but if we had to set a number that would be to hit 1,000 followers by the end of the year.
For our Instagram Account: That’s where we get creative. Motivational Quotes, Blogging and random chatty questions, “Follow-Fridays”, a lot of features on stories (because literally, our Tribe’s Instagram feeds are just awesome!) and a few of reposts every week. I haven’t found an Instagram account like this, so I decided to create one. So far it’s going pretty well and I’m obsessed with all the pictures that you already tag us with, but if I had to set a goal here too, that would be 400 followers until the end of the year.
Quality over Quantity was one of the first decisions I made before I even started this community, so I’d really appreciate that you hit the “Join” button, if you’re ready to really become a Tribe member and participate in the group. Because this is not just another Facebook group. This is a community. This is a TRIBE.
How to become a member of The Blogging Tribe?
First of all, The Blogging Tribe is FREE and it will always be! There are no paid promotions and everyone is equal. I’d like to disclaim that because I see a lot of things like this on the internet and I just don’t want this for our Tribe.
So if you want to become a member all you have to do is to apply here for the Facebook Group, Follow us on Twitter and on Instagram. Really simple! After you get accepted on our Facebook Group, make sure to introduce yourself and tell us a bit about you and your blog. As for Twitter all you have to do is use the hashtag #thebloggingtribe to get retweeted, and well… participate in our daily threads. On Instagram, we use the same hashtag (#thebloggingtribe) and also many people like to tag us (@thebloggingtribe).
I’m thrilled about this community and I can’t wait to see you guys becoming our Tribe Members and watch you grow and support each other. I’ve seen a lot so far in the blogging world and I believe that the best bloggers are those who collaborate, help each other and see everyone’s success as a mutual benefit.
Let’s build a community that COUNTS.
I hope that you like this idea of our Blogging Tribe, and can’t wait to see you becoming a Tribe member! Pop me any questions you might have below! I’ll be more than happy to answer them!
