The Low Down on Meeting Other Bloggers

The best part of blogging is the amazing community of women (and men!). Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses, different personalities, and even different personal lives but the one thing we all have in common is that we blog, that we are passionate about it, and we are willing to help one another out. Isn’t it the best when you get to meet other head strong ladies that lift you up instead of tear you down?

Whether you just started your blog or have been going at it for years, having a tribe is so important, but it’s not always easy meeting other bloggers, especially when they live on the other side of the country.

So how do you go about meeting other bloggers?

Comment, comment, comment

I feel like commenting on other blogs is a no brainer but at the same time, I realize I didn’t do it for so long so maybe it isn’t a no-brainer? Not only does commenting on other blogs bring in more traffic but it shows that you’re a supportive blogger and want to help a sista out.

Also, don’t forget about social media!! Replying and commenting to posts is a great way to start the initial conversation. A lot of the girls I have met through blogging started out from merely commenting and replying to each others social media posts

Participate in Twitter chats

Ah, Twitter chats. Want to hear something embarrassing? I am 22 years old and it took me almost two years of blogging to finally figure out what a Twitter chat was. The concept was SO confusing and overwhelming.

Twitter chats are a super fun and simple way to meet other bloggers simply because you are participating because you have an interest in a topic and so don’t they. The best part is that the conversation is being “mediated” per say by the host so you don’t have to worry about about those awkward questions! Now all you have to do is tell them “hey, I really like how you think!”

Attend blogger meet ups

Becoming a member in a regions Facebook group (i.e. Boston Bloggers) can help you find when meet ups are going on. If you’re not sure if where you live has a Facebook group, simply search “YOUR CITY bloggers” in the search bar!

Another way to find meet ups in your area is by following other bloggers from your area on social media and you can always start your own! Promote, promote, promote and bloggers will flock (I promise you!). Attending blogging conferences like Thrive and Her Conference can help you meet other ladies that do what you do, you can learn a bunch, and have fun!

You can find a list of blogging conferences here.

Join a society

There are so many blogging societies and membership groups you can join that will not only allow you to meet other bloggers but will benefit you via their resources and their sponsorship opportunities. A lot of times these societies also host meet ups for their members in certain areas.

The Blog Societies and Influencer Her Collective are great options and are two “blogging societies” that I am part of! Both offer sponsored post opportunities, a yearly blogging conference, and a great member group that will help you meet other bloggers!

How do you go about meeting other bloggers?

    Wow, I really needed to read this post this am. Lately, I’ve been feeling so crazy when I’ve been engaging on social. When I randomly comment on someone’s Insta in front of a non-blogging friend they make me feel so weird about talking to total strangers- ha!

    But really, thanks for posting this. You made me feel like what I am doing is completely normal in our world.

      Oh my gosh! It’s SO normal! Engaging with other bloggers is the best and is the first steps that need to be made in a blogging friendship. Having a great balance of “regular friends” and “blogging friends” is a necessity! We need to be able to communicate with other fabulous people that do the same thing as us!

    YES! This post was so great. I’ve been blogging for several years now, but I have yet to find my tribe (sad face). I’m working on it slowly but surely. Love reading your tips and hope to one day have a blogging bestie like you and Cristina do.

    Love this post! I need to reach out to other bloggers more, but I always feel weird spontaneously engaging with a random blogger! haha I always wait for people to make the first step, but that needs to change. Great post!

    • August 21, 2016 / 10:55 PM

      You can do it girlfriend! It’s so fun getting to know other bloggers, and I’m sure many of them feel the same way you do!

    The video of you guys are so cute! You can tell that you two really are great friends.

  12. August 11, 2016 / 10:51 PM

    I love this video. I agree one of the best things about blogging is the community. I was at Blogher16 last week and it was so amazing connecting with all the people who get what you’re devoting so much time too. Great tips for making connections .

    I love this post! I totally agree, blogging is all about the community, I have met my best friend via blogging and it’s been great ever since. Blogging has caused me to be a more open person, which I have struggled with for years.

    • August 21, 2016 / 10:57 PM

      Thanks Katie!!! It is a wonderful community and I love that everyone supports one another!
