The NEWBIE shares: Tripling blog views, comments and followers with Facebook in just one month



In my last post I talked about how I promote my blog posts (right now). The basic routine is to share my post on my Facebook page, Pinterest, Twitter, Reddit and then Google+. Got it? Well, at the end of that post I revealed that this is not all there is to pimpin' a post.
I go back to Facebook.

With my original blog, Modern Colors, I didn't really have much of a reason to promote anything. It's just a personal blog with no affiliate links or sponsored posts or anything... well, a couple of ads but, meh. So it wasn't until I set up this new blog that I started looking into ways to really get my posts out there and network. I discovered a buttload of groups for bloggers on Facebook and I discover one almost every week. 


In a typical group, the admin asks you share your blog post, the Facebook share of the post, the tweet, the Pin and SO much more! After sharing your link, you check out the others to help promote their blogs as well!
Often times you even get to share the links to your key social media profiles, including Facebook, Bloglovin', Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn and more.
Some admins let you share these daily. Some only do one social media share per day, like Twitter on Monday, Pinterest on Tuesday, etc. 

I'm in about 20 of these groups right now. (I was in MORE!). See, I'm sniffing them all out to see which ones are worth the time and letting go of those that are not. It's been a month since I've joined these groups and it has tripled my post views, followers and comment average since and the numbers are rising every day!!


Let me share with you a few of my favorite groups that are exceptionally awesome for boosting traffic to a new blog and building a great network:

This one isn't for promoting your blog but it's a great place to ask questions about blogging and get great answers, advice and tips from pros.

This won't help ya much if you're not a "mom blogger". Sorry. But if you are, this group is a great way to network with other bloggers. You share your post in the group and then read other posts that have been shared.

Each group has different rules so be sure to read the guidelines before posting anything!!

Alright, party people. That's all for now. I'm going to go enjoy this quiet time while the babies and husband are asleep and watch Family Guy and eat some leftover eggplant Parmesan. Word.
See ya next time!

  15. That's good advice. Finding the right groups for you really helps a lot. And letting go of those that don't as to not dissipate your focus. I've been in the process of doing that in the last couple of days, not only on Facebook. And thanks for mentioning Blog Love :)
