Four Tips for Creating Community through Blogging

1. Reach out to other bloggers:  this is an  essential when wanting to get into community. It can be as small as a comment on their blog, or an email. I have built relationships with other bloggers through email, commenting on their blogs, etc. For me it has been a beneficial thing, to create community in something that I really didn't know there was any.  This is a great post on why bloggers need community. 


2. Join a blog group on Facebook, or some other social media group: I have joined the Peony Project on facebook which is a group for other christian bloggers. It's a great group and i would definitely recommend it! 


3. Make meaningful comments: when I say meaningful comments I don't mean that you have to write a novel, but at least engage with the post somehow. Check out Madison's post on how to comment on blogs to find out more. 


4. Plan a blogger Meetup: If you there are some other bloggers in your area or some that are close to where you live, then plan a blogger meetup. It can be a great way to connect with other bloggers and actually meet some of them in real life. This post on how to plan a blogger meetup, has some great advice.

  2. I've been loving the community I've found through blogging! I have so many virtual friends (and a few in-person) I'd never have met if not for blogging. It took a while to really start connecting, but now that i think about it, meaningful comments and emails are what brought about most of them. That and the awesome group at the Peony Project.

  4. Reaching out to other bloggers and creating community is so so important! I have come to realize that my blog wouldn't be anything if I didn't have other bloggers supporting me!

  11. I would love to find other bloggers in my area, but I kinda live out in the middle of no where. Maybe later in the year I could make it a priority to find some bloggers who live by me and make something happen.
    I love Peony Project! Everyone there is so helpful and encouraging. Found your post there. :-)

  15. Thanks for sharing these tips! I just joined the blogging community a few weeks ago, and I'm eager to get to know other writers. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming -- like walking into a party where I don't know anybody, and everyone else seems to know each other! But I'm trying to work on taking one step and saying one hello at a time.
