I’ve been blogging for a little under a year and the tool that has been the best referrer for me is Facebook. When I first started my blog, I joined three Facebook blogging groups and shared very regularly in all of them. Over time, I’ve discovered many other groups. It has since become too difficult to try to remember which groups have which type of threads each day so I’ve created this list of groups and thread types.
I know the images below are hard to read, so I’ve added a download link for the excel file.
I find myself doing the Click Through and StubleUpon threads in Grow your Blog and the Pinterest and Twitter threads in The Sparkle Group daily. I also do the monthly follows in Bloggeres2Brands.
I also do every Saturday/combined weekend post because I post my blog posts every Saturday morning.
I know there are many more groups than on my list so I will hopefully be able to maintain this as a working document. What is your favorite Facebook group for blog promotion?
Here are links to all of the mentioned groups:
This is amazing! Thank you so much for doing the work to put together a list like this, I am so excited to join these new communities and build my following!
Wow- definitelz going to check out the ones I haven’t heard of! Thanks for the advice- it will be a socially media busy weekend!
This is so great! I’m in a couple of groups, but you just really helped widen my horizons. Thanks!
Great list. I’m always amazed at how many groups I don’t know about. Thanks for sharing.
I am on several of these, will check out more. Thanks for putting this list together.
This is a beyond helpful list! Thank you so much for sharing! I will have to pin this to keep for later as well!
Great list, thanks for sharing! I really need to organize my list, I use some of those and I think I need to check out the rest!
Awesome list. It is hard to keep up with so many of them. Thank you for the recommendations. I’m going to check out some of the other ones and see if they are a good fit.
This is AWESOME! Thank you for sharing.
Thank so much for sharing. This is super helpful. By the way, what are click thrus? I keep seeing them, but never list on them as I don’t know what they are. I asked on Grow your Blog but haven’t gotten a response as of yet.
A click through is where someone clicks through your post. For example, I always say click through anything. So, I leave my link for people to open and then they click somewhere on my blog. It helps increase session ratios. You can also say where you want people to click on your page. Such as if you leave a link to a blog post and then you ask them to click through to your related posts.
Great list! I like the Grow Your Blog group, but it can be time consuming! There is also a newer group called PinPals…for every Pin you leave, you re-pin 6. I’m a big fan of growing Pinterest, as I hope that will be my main source of traffic 🙂
Thanks for the tip! Yes, Grow Your Blog can be time consuming. I usually do the Click Throughs and Stumbles while watching a show.
Which one do you think was the most helpful in terms of gaining subscribers?
I don’t think any are very helpful for email subscribers. But for Social Media Subscribers, all of the ‘Follow all’ Threads (I believe this was Dark Green)
I’ve never heard of most of these, but I will be checking them out.
Omg this is actually amazing!!! No joke! Thank you so much for this!! Totally joining these groups 🙂
Thank you for this helpful post! I am part of some of these groups, but now I have so many more to check out.
Okay, I totally LOVE your spreadsheet!! I’m such a sucker for list and spreadsheets! It truly is the only way to stay organized with all of these fantastic groups you belong to. Great list, I think I’m in just about all of these groups however, I do not participate in many of them because I just get overwhelmed with the amount of work. Great list!!!
Great list. I was a member of some of the groups but you gave me more to join.
Thanks for the resources! I love blogging groups! Grow Your blog is obviously my favorite, but I also use Awesome Bloggers a lot, and I’m trying to get my pinterest group Pinterest Rockstars up and going bigger.
What a great list. i am in a few groups and I would love to check out new ones.
What a great idea! Going to join some of these now, catch you on the inside!
Oh, my god. This is GOLDEN! Thank you so much for this information. I have been looking to expand my groups. Fantastic!
What a great list!!!! Groups definitely help me out when I have a sponsored post and my regular readers decide to ignore!
Wow! There are so many blog groups that I hadn’t even heard of, so this list is super helpful. Thank you!
This is SO helpful, thank you!!! I only really use Grow Your Blog, but have definitely noticed a difference since I started posting regularly. Thanks for this!
This is such a great resource for bloggers, I am loving this post and pinning too.
Thanks for adding my group bloggers2brands
I love the spread sheet you’ve put together. I was just thinking today that I need to be more organized about my approach in the groups. Thanks!
Wow thanks for being super helpful with the info! You just gained a new subscriber.
Incredible list. Looks like a have a ton of work to do:)
Thank you SO much for sharing this! I’ve just recently started using Facebook groups and I have been searching for a post like this!
