Have you noticed all the different communities available now for bloggers? So many places to list your blog to attract visitors and readers, or dare I say it? Fans. Particularly since I’ve been hanging around LinkedIn I’ve been learning about other places to list my blogs, and to mix and mingle with other bloggers. LinkedIn has a bloggers discussion group and I’ve learnt heaps from them. If you missed my post on Linked in, then please go and read it now.
Going back to the blogging communities, I’m going to list some of them here for you to go and check out!
Blog Catalog â€“ great place to list all your blogs in one place. They have a new discussion forum here and itâ€™s a great place to get to meet other bloggers.
Bumpzee â€“ this has a growing Australian list of bloggers here and Iâ€™m still just setting up my profile.
Digg â€“ important to understand what this one is about and that you donâ€™t â€˜diggâ€™ your own blogposts as thatâ€™s a quick way to get â€˜buriedâ€™. Now, Iâ€™m still learning the terminology and my time has been limited over the past few weeks so I know very little still, but itâ€™s worth going to check it out.
Mybloglog â€“ another place where lots of social bloggers hang out, and travel from one bloggerâ€™s profile to another, leaving comments and joining your â€˜communityâ€™.
Squidoo â€“ love this one and am still exploring. I was going to list all my blogs in the one profile but then decided to categorise them so have 3 â€˜lensesâ€™ set up instead. Their list of â€˜topicsâ€™ seems to be limited though â€“ Iâ€™d like to see a bigger choice and perhaps that might happen with time.
Stumbled Upon â€“ still working this one out but you can do random visits of blogs and let people know which ones you like and donâ€™t like. There is a toolbar you can install to your browser for use.
This is not an exhaustive list and I’m sure I will find others too, but thought it will help your blogging journey! KMT
