So what is a blogging tribe? It’s essentially a group of people who encourage and support each other to reach their goals. Which, in blogging is SO important.
Have you ever found yourself stuck in a blogging rut or wanted to get the opinions of someone who is in the same boat as you? Having a tribe to support you and bounce ideas off of really makes all the difference.
I found my blogging tribe when Charline and Kimmy from EatLoveWear reached out to me about an Instagram group, and it has proved so helpful already.
We build each other up and show love on each other’s posts, which is going to be really important when the Instagram algorithm changes our feeds from chronological order to a more “personalized” feed. (Ugh, really Instagram? Why fix something that isn’t broken?)
Anyway, I found a quote on Pinterest the other day that really stuck out to me and describes the essence of a blogging tribe:
“Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back.”
So, how do you find your blogging tribe? Here are a few things that will help you find a tribe you truly adore.
1. Join Facebook groups for bloggers.
I’m in several FB groups specifically for bloggers. There are so many out there and you’re bound to find one that you really connect with! My favorite is The Positive Millenial, created by Amanda Cross. The group focuses on staying positive throughout life and blogging, and the ladies in the group are so sweet and encouraging.
2. Participate in Twitter chats.
Participating in Twitter chats regularly has allowed me to connect with so many bloggers on a more personal level, and I almost always meet someone new who I have something in common with. One of my favorite that I’ve participated in is the #galpalchat which has allowed my to connect with so many lovely fellow bloggers!
3. Engage with fellow bloggers.
Engagement is everything. Whether it be on Instagram, Twitter, or their blog, make sure to show some love to the content that your fellow bloggers work so hard to put out for you! By commenting and engaging with other bloggers, you might find some amazing friendships.
Now that I’ve told you some of the ways you can find your blogging tribe, I want you to meet mine!
