*Updated December 2019
Facebook groups have been one of my best resources for blogging inspiration, education, and camaraderie throughout my blogging journey so far. I have learned so much by reading others’ experiences, and seeing the questions and concerns of those at my level as well as those way ahead of me. Blogging groups on Facebook have saved me so many headaches and helped me not only have confidence that my struggles are not unique (blogging can be lonely so feeling ‘normal’ is good!), but also to learn some mistakes to avoid before I actually make them. I’ve also made a handful of genuine online friends in some of the smaller groups who have helped keep me inspired and motivated as we build and grow our “empires” through similar stages, as well as found some useful tools and courses I otherwise would never have discovered.
So it’s no surprise that I believe Facebook groups are a seriously invaluable tool for finding blogging success! But they’re also all as unique as the people who run them, with their own personalities and vibes and rules and communities, so what works for one blogger might not work for another.
Interested in a finding a few good ones? I’m happy to share my favorites! (Because the more the merrier.) And be sure to check my group! It’s first on the list below. 🙂
General Blogging Groups
Write Better, Blog Better: Writing Support for Bloggers My group! Daily threads for writing and blogging support on topics like writing prompts, writer’s block, post titles, grammar, SEO, social media, blogging tools, collaborations, and anything goes self promo (on Saturdays).
Blogging Like We Mean It An active, engaged general blogging group with a slight lean towards Pinterest strategies and SEO. A good number of full-time bloggers in the membership.
Bloggers Supporting Bloggers Large group with daily threads for various blogging tasks. They are slow to accept new members though, I’ve heard good things but as of writing this am still waiting to get in (4 days+).
Bloggers Supporting Each Other A larger group with daily threads for blog and social media engagement including some unique ones like LinkedIn and Google Page Rank.
Problogger Community No self-promo in this group, in fact they frown on any links at all (even relevant links that answer questions). The result though is a unique resource and pretty much spam-free experience of pure question and answer format.
DNW – Make Money From Blogging Not a new group but growing quickly in recent months. Active source of information for making a living with your blog.
Food Blogging, Photography, and Videography You don’t have to be a food blogger to enjoy this one, it’s great group for all bloggers who take their own photos (or hope to).
Blogging Newbs General blogging group with an active member list and feed. Self-promo thread on Tuesdays.
The Sway Facebook Group A community associated with the influencer network MassiveSway.com, and as such lots of advice and topics in here related to blogger/brand partnerships, sponsored post opportunities, and more.

Blogging & Social Media Engagement Groups

Blogging Boost Large group with daily threads for various blogging topics plus a self-promo option on Mondays.

What are your favorite blogging Facebook groups?
Facebook groups live and die so fast! Keeping this list fresh will be no small feat so help a girl out and if you find a link that’s broken or a group that’s closed or inactive let me know in the comments and I’ll fix it up! Also feel free to share other groups you’ve discovered that are awesome and I’ll check them out and consider adding them (P.S. especially any blogging groups specific to men? I found this one but that’s it).
