15 Must-Join Facebook Groups for Bloggers (to Grow Your Blog!)

Facebook groups for bloggers–there are a million of them, right?

Well, not exactly a million. Or at least, I don’t think so.

But it can feel that way when you’re scrolling Facebook looking for groups to join because you just started a blog.

The challenge (and what I want to help you with) is figuring out which ones are worth your time.

Why Join Facebook Groups as a New Blogger

facebook groups for bloggers

There are three great reasons to join Facebook groups for bloggers when you’re just getting started as a blogger.

First, you can learn a ton about blogging this way.

A lot of blogging groups on Facebook allow members to post questions on the wall or ask for feedback about their blog.

I’ve asked questions about Pinterest design, collaborating, building an email list–you name it.

And I also pay attention to what other people are asking too. It’s an easy way to boost your blogging knowledge without having to spend hours scouring the internet looking for answers.

Second, you can build relationships with other bloggers in these groups.

I don’t know any of the people in the Facebook groups I belong to personally.

But there’s a sense of we’re-all-in-this-together that happens when you see the same faces popping up as you make the rounds of different groups. And that can come in handy when you’re ready to start branching out your blog promotion efforts.

One of your blogging friends might ask you to guest post on their site, for example. Or they might start following you on Pinterest and their followers start following you too.

As your network grows, your blog can grow too.

Third, and maybe most importantly if you’re a new blogger, Facebook groups can be a great way to help boost your blog traffic.

And that’s what you want, right?

People visiting your blog, leaving comments, bookmarking your posts for later, sharing them on Pinterest, Twitter–you get the picture.

A lot of the groups I belong to feature sharing threads where you can share a post or your latest pin or your social media profiles. Dropping your links is a fast and easy way to get eyes on your content.

What Makes a Facebook Group for Bloggers Good?

Before we get to the list, let’s run through what makes a Facebook group for bloggers a good one.

Here’s what I look for when joining a group:

  • Decent membership (1,000+)
  • Created and run by an established blogger (or bloggers)
  • Private, closed group
  • Regular and consistent posting by the moderators/owners
  • Promo threads or days for sharing blog posts, social media profiles, etc.
  • Great engagement

Basically, I try to join blogging groups that give you a chance to promote your blog but also help you actually learn about blogging.

Because there’s so much to learn all the time when you’re a beginner.

So, the groups I’m most active in are the ones where members can and do ask lots of questions. The best groups are the ones where the admins and/or moderators actually take time to provide a thoughtful answer.

For example, I recently asked a question about opt-ins in the Blogging Education Network group. Both group moderators, Tracie Fobes and Debbie Gartner (who, if you don’t know, are both big-time bloggers) jumped in and answered my questions.

I mean, what’s better than that?

I’m learning how to be a better blogger from pros who have already mastered it. And I’m tapping into their knowledge that they so generously share for FREE.

It’s the perfect recipe for a stellar blogging Facebook group.

Tips for Joining Facebook Blogging Groups

So hopefully, you’ve found a few groups on this list that you’d like to join.

Here are my best tips for joining and participating in Facebook groups to grow your blog:

Consider what you want to get from the group.

Not long ago, I decided to leave 60+ Facebook groups for blogging because they just didn’t fit with what I needed.

But I was in all of them because I’d gone on a group joining spree. Don’t do that; it’s just a time-waster.

Instead, think about what you’re looking for in a group (education, sharing, connections, etc.). Stick to joining only those groups that fit the bill.

Answer the questions to join.

One thing you’ll run into a lot when joining blogger groups on Facebook is having to answer prescreening questions.

Typically, you’ll have to share your blog URL and why you want to join. You may also be asked to agree to not violate the group rules.

Don’t skip these questions. If you do, your request to join will likely go ignored or get deleted.

Read the group rules and follow them.

Every group has different rules about what you can and can’t do, especially when it comes to when you can post links to your blog.

If you’re going to join a Facebook group to promote your blog, then great. But don’t step on the admin’s toes to do it.

So read the rules, get familiar with when you can and can’t share. And most of all, be nice to other people in the group.

Engage with other group members.

Facebook groups for bloggers that support community only work when the members and admins participate.

So ask questions. And if you can answer a question someone else posts, don’t be afraid to chime in.

This is how you get to know people and it’s also how you learn how to be a better blogger.

Share your stuff!

Lastly, if a Facebook group you belong to has sharing or promo threads, use them!

Just remember that Facebook can penalize you for sharing the same link too many times. So mix it up.

For example, I try to promote two to three different posts or pins every week. This keeps me from getting on Facebook’s bad side and it helps me test out what kind of content is getting the best response.

Also, know that Facebook can ding you for commenting too often in a short amount of time as well.

So if you’re commenting on a thread to let other members know you’ve shared their stuff, try to space it out.

And duh–make sure you’re sharing other peoples’ content.

It’s called reciprocation and it’s only fair to spread the love a little if other people are helping promote your blog. 🙂

Do You Have a Favorite Facebook Group for Bloggers?

So there you have it, my personal favorite picks for the best Facebook groups to grow your blog!

If you have a group you just love, love, love, head to the comments and tell me about it. And of course, be sure to share this post in the blogging Facebook groups you belong to if it helped you!

Comments

    • Thanks McKinzie! I love being part of Blogging Newbs, it’s one of my go-to Facebook groups for blogging–everyone’s so helpful and kind!

  1. Oh my gosh. How do you do it? There are so many groups out there, it can be overwhelming. Maybe I will add a couple more at your recommendation. Great list. And extra great to be in some of these groups with you.

    • Thanks Jenny, I like seeing you around in some of these groups as well! All of these groups are great, they wouldn’t be on the list if they weren’t. A lot of them are good for growing your traffic through promos but many of them offer opportunities to make real connections and build your blogging network, which is so important.

    • Thanks Meghan, I knew I’d seen you around somewhere :). Yes, definitely check all of these Facebook groups out, there are some real gems on the list!

  2. Thank you Rebecca, this is a great list! The only problem is choosing which three to join (because I don’t think I can realistically be active in more than three).

    • You’re welcome Rachael! I’m active in all of these groups but some more so than others. I tend to favor the groups that balance promo days with authentic engagement–asking questions, starting conversations, that sort of thing. If you’re stuck on which groups to join from this list, any of them are great! You may want to visit them all and see which ones you like best!

  3. Excellent! Joining blogging related Facebook groups is one of the best decisions I ever made. I only regret that I didn’t do so much sooner, but it’s because I wasn’t even aware of them. Your list has some excellent groups that I will be checking out right now

    • Glad you found some new groups to join! And I do love your group, Golden Bloggerz, as well. For this roundup, I included groups with 1,000 members or more but yours is growing so quickly, I’m sure I’ll be updating this post soon!

      • That’s totally acceptable! My group is still new despite the high numbers of people that participate in daily threads.

        I’m already happy that you’re an active member of it & i’m sure your blog will eventually be one of the popular ones, because you put much work & effort to produce quality pieces.

        • Thanks Chris, I’m trying! I’ll definitely be updating this post, as I have a few new groups I’ve joined that are growing steadily! I put in a lot of work and I’m seeing some results so far but I still have a long way to go. 🙂

  4. Hi Rebecca,

    That’s a wonderful list of facebook groups! I did not know I was missing a few.

    Thanks for writing this, and also including my group ‘Blogger’s Camp’ to this list.

    Keep writing great stuff!

    Arfa

    • Thanks Arfa! You are so welcome, I love being part of Bloggers Camp and recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a supportive Facebook group to grow their blogs.

  5. We must have the same taste as I am a part of most of these groups! Being in the right Facebook blogging groups is so important for connecting in the community as well as growing. Great list Rebecca!

  6. Wow! I did not know there are so many groups out there! I have joined 1 among the list and it really helped me a lot! Will definitely join more. 🙂

    • There are so many more, you wouldn’t believe it! But these are my favorite Facebook groups for bloggers and the ones I spend time in most often. 🙂

  7. You’ve got some great suggestions here. I hadn’t heard of a couple, so I’m going to have to check them out! Facebook groups are such a powerful tool, a great way to network with others.

    • Thanks Britt! Definitely check out some of these other Facebook groups for bloggers, they’re all great! They’ve all been super helpful to me for networking and learning about blogging, not to mention boosting traffic. 🙂

    • You’re welcome Laura! There are some excellent Facebook groups for bloggers on this list, especially if you want to get some eyes on your content and learn more about blogging. 🙂

  8. Excellent list! I did not know of several of these. I can’t wait to get started! Also, I recognize your theme as a HelloYouDesigns theme. I LOVE her work! Your site is beautiful.

    • Thanks Katie, there are some great ones here and they’re all ones I spend time in. I’ve since discovered a few new ones that I may have to add! And yes, HelloYou is the BEST–I felt like I really lucked out by finding her themes, this one spoke to exactly what I was looking for.

    • You’re so welcome, I’m glad you found it helpful. There are some really great Facebook groups for bloggers on this list, especially if you’re looking for something more than just follow for follow threads.

    • We already chatted about this but I use the Pin feature in Facebook to keep track of the groups I’m most active in. I Pin the groups, then I can scan through them quickly to see which ones have been most recently updated. And I’ve tried to learn the various posting schedule days for promos, feeback days, etc. so I don’t miss anything! I just purged about half of the Facebook groups for bloggers I belonged to not long ago so I can focus just on those ones that offer a real return on my time.

    • Thanks Cara! I didn’t see your post, I’ll have to check it out. There are so many great Facebook groups for bloggers out there and these are some of my favorites!

  9. Thanks for the great list! I appreciate the helpful information. I just need to decide how many groups I have time for, and this will help me narrow it down.

    • You’re welcome Lisa! I’m in a few other groups besides these ones that I may add to the list. It’s tricky making time to juggle them all so just stick with the ones that are giving you exactly (or as close as possible to) what you need for promotion, engagement, etc.

    • You’re so welcome Adam, that was a very helpful post for me! I have the social proof as a freelance writer but I’m still working on growing it as a blogger so your tips gave me some great perspective on how to become more visible and build authority. And Facebook groups for bloggers are great for making connections and growing traffic I’ve found. Totally humbled that you’d like to share this with your audience, thanks so much!

    • Thanks Emily! Facebook groups for bloggers are fantastic! They’re a great way to meet other bloggers and make connections, and promote your blog. Definitely give some of these groups a try if you haven’t!

  10. Wow, I love this post and your blog, in general, is so pretty (teach me, haha)! I’m a newbie blogger so this is extra helpful. I’ll explore your blog a bit later. I’m in the mental health, spirituality, studying Japanese (bc that’s what I do at uni), self-development/lifestyle niche. Love from Germany, Kerstin 🙂

    • That’s great, Krizelle! Good luck to you in your blogging journey and definitely check out some of these Facebook groups for bloggers. They’re all awesome!

  11. This is an awesome post Rebecca. I was just going to look for some other blogging FB groups to join tomorrow – but looks like you’ve done all the work for me. I’ll definitely be joining some of these. Seems like an awesome way to do some networking with other bloggers and get some eyeballs on your content!

    • Thanks, Tim! Every Facebook group on this list is great for bloggers and I’ve discovered a few new ones since I published that I post that I’ll have to include. Facebook groups for bloggers can be helpful for building your network and growing traffic if you’re in the right ones!

  12. I immediately went to Facebook and joined half these groups. I’m super new to the blogging world, and posts like this are SO HELPFUL! Thank you! 🙂
