Networking & Friendships for Bloggers

For those of you that follow my content regularly, you know that 95% (ish) of my posts are focused solely on blogging / business / social media improvements.  I work hard to make these posts as valuable to you all as possible.  I am so determined to produce great content because I hate that feeling of disappointment. 

You know the one!  Great title, great Pinterest image.  Queue excitement … only to be followed by sad feels.

Anyway, I’m rambling. 

This week I’m doing something a little different. 

Here’s where you come in; if you would be so kind as to humor me. I would love it if you could leave a comment below, including a link to your blog or an individual post that needs some love, alongside a description about the theme(s) of your content. It can be as long or short as you want! #BloggingTips #Networking #BloggingFriends

My life has been crazy busy recently, worky work, side gig work, plus my own personal projects.  Gosh I’m just so tired!  The crux of the matter is, I want to get to know you and your blog better.  But my spare time is like if ZERO and NONE had a baby. 

ZERO NONE!

I can’t be the only one in this boat surely?

Raise your hand if you have NO TIME!

Given that I’m an admin nerd aka mad keen on streamlining processes (it just does something to me ya know) I have been thinking of a way that we could all get to know each other better without so much pressure!  If this is away from the fast pace of social media, all the better.   I don’t know about you, but sometimes I am not good at dealing with so much visual noise.

Sharing is Caring

Here’s where you come in; if you would be so kind as to humor me.  I would love it if you could leave a comment below, including a link to your blog or an individual post that needs some love, alongside a description about the theme(s) of your content.  It can be as long or short as you want! 

I also encourage people to discover each other’s content.  This is all about spending quality time in each other’s worlds and building new and meaningful connections 😊

I will keep this post pinned to the top of my Twitter feed for a week, possibly more depending on how much interaction occurs.   Then we can all refer back to it easily, to find and engage with each other’s content.  It’s like networking for lazy people who just can’t social media today.  Or speed dating to find platonic blogging friendships?!  

As for me it’s back to the drawing board!  I am delivering a social media talk to my local “Women in Biz” group in early October.  So, I’m cracking on with a presentation for that.  Kind of ironic given my “can’t social media today” comments from earlier! 

Hope to catch you in the comments below!  Remember please share your links and your descriptions.

Until next time

    Awesome idea!

    My blog is about single parenting after the suicide loss of my husband last year, it’s far from doom and gloom though and has a big dose of humour in most posts.

    What a great idea. Our blog deals with our adventures in the outdoors, BUT one large component of it is a section called “Thoughts From the Wilderness” which is my view of life, living, our struggles and how we might cope as seen through the lens of nature and the outdoors.

    Here’s a link to our blog and “Thoughts From the Wilderness”

    This is a really nice post and also a very useful resource for all bloggers. I’m pretty new to the blogging scene but really hope I can make something of it. I mostly write about makeup and skincare, but there are also some tips and lifestyle posts in there too. I’m over at awomansconfidence.com x
