Why Blogging Websites Need Blogging Networks to Thrive

As blogging websites have become more popular, the need for blogging networks has increased. There are over 600 million blogs in 2022 according to EarthWeb. That’s a lot of competition for a single blog owner to compete with.

However, blogging networks provide a way for bloggers to connect with each other and share ideas. These networks can also help promote each other’s blogs among the millions.

Sharing Other Blogging Websites Posts and More

When it comes to blogging, one of the best ways to get your name out there is to share other bloggers’ content. This not only helps them, but it also helps you build relationships and grow your own following.

There are a few things to keep in mind when sharing other bloggers’ content:

  • Make sure you link back to the original post. This is important for both giving credit and driving traffic back to the original author’s website.
  • If you’re sharing on social media, be sure to tag the author or their website. This will help them get exposure and potentially reach a new audience.
  • When sharing others’ blog posts, always add your own commentary or thoughts. This will help make your posts more unique and interesting, and it shows that you’re not just copying and pasting someone else’s work.

By following these simple tips, you can share other bloggers’ content while still growing your own blogging platform. So get out there and start sharing! Dana Gore has a great example below in her YouTube video:

Bloggers Who Link To Others

When it comes to blogging, one of the best ways to get your content seen is to link to other bloggers. This shows that you are connected to the community and are willing to share relevant information. By doing this, you will not only get more traffic to your own blog, but you will also build relationships with other bloggers.

When you link to another blogger, make sure that the content is relevant to your own. This way, you can show that you are an expert on the topic and that you are providing valuable information to your readers. Additionally, make sure to link back to the original source so that credit is given where it is due.

Linking to other bloggers is a great way to build relationships and grow your blogging network. By doing so, you will have your content seen by a wider audience and establish yourself as an expert in your field.

These bloggers who do link to other bloggers that do it well include: (By doing it well, they link relevant content from their blogging websites for their niche readers.)

I’ve met all of these bloggers through blogging groups like the ones mentioned below:

Where To Find Your Blogging Groups:

Blog Engage

This network is made of up various bloggers from around the world. First, submit your blog article(s) for review by the owner.

Then the articles are promoted by the owner of Blog Engage or to the visitors to the main page.

You can upgrade your blog posts with an extra $5, $10, or $15 to have your blogging websites promoted by this network. Blog Engage can boost your blog traffic with one of these upgrades.

Triberr to Promote Your Blog

Triberr is a diverse marketing platform that enables influencers to increase their reach. This platform centers around groups of like-minded individuals, called Tribes. Learn how to use Triberr for your blog to extend your reach!

Of course, all you need is an RSS feed for others to share your blogging websites.

Social Media Groups

There are many social media groups out there that you can join. Oftentimes, the algorithm favors the group feeds over the main feed. They may include Facebook Groups, LinkedIn Groups, Reddit, Gab Groups, MeWeGroups, Minds Groups, etc.

Twitter Communities

This is a newer feature on Twitter that gives people a dedicated place to connect, share, and get closer to the discussions they care about most.

However, do note you cannot embed tweets from the communities on Twitter.

Twitter Chats Promote Blogging Websites

Yes, Twitter is a great place for bloggers, and chit chats can bring many bloggers together. Joining Twitter chats is a great tactic for new bloggers to get noticed and for older bloggers to meet new people.

These chats are quick and easy and you can find various ones to pick from in different niches. 

Quora Spaces

Quora Spaces allows you to create new communities around specific topics, and share content on these communities including Quora answers as well as any blog posts. Not only that but you can share the content from Quora to the social networks.

Lastly, you can join my blogging tips space on Quora here.

Biz Sugar

This community of blog and business owners share their blog posts on the network and vote up others’ content on the platform. It’s a great way to get to know other business-minded bloggers from around the world.

Oftentimes, others will share your content or go directly to your blog to comment as well.

MissingLttr

This social media management tool also is a community – a group of bloggers that share each other’s blog content. MissingLttr has a queue of blog posts you can schedule to share. Of course, pick those blogging websites that are relevant to your audience’s needs.

You can share them on Facebook, Twitter, and Google My Places to name a few.

 

Blogging is Not A Solo Activity

Blogging is no longer a solo activity. In order to be found online and generate traffic, you need to participate in the blogging community. This means commenting on other blogs, guest blogging, and promoting your blog content on social media.

Back in the early days of writing a blog, you could be found on search engines via organic traffic. There were not many blogs like today back then. The competition is fierce in search so until you build up the SEO efforts you may need to find other ways. However, be sure your headlines are engaging as well.

For newer blogging websites, social media and blog commenting play a key role in growing your new blog. Through these methods, you can build your blog brand along with building relationships. I’ve made some wonderful friends through the years through blogging. 

Guest Posts for Blogging Websites

Furthermore, those building relationships can lead to a guest posts on other blogs. Bloggers accept a guest post from someone they know vs. a strange emailing them. These types of posts help your link building to draw more organic traffic to your blogging websites.

Of course, make sure you submit great content when guest posting on other’s blogging websites. These other websites should also have your target audience as their readers.

There is no sense in writing for an audience who does not care about what you have to say. Your piece of content should answer questions and offer more solutions to an audience’s problems.

    Hi Lisa, totally agree blogging isn’t a solo activity.

    I always follow up with anyone I’ve linked to in a post, but what’s been working best for me is Quora spaces. The traffic back to my blogs is good, but the quality of that traffic is great. It also helps me see what topics or specific angles of a topic people are interested in when I write new blog posts.

    Cheers!

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Patrick, welcome to Inspire To Thrive. I’m glad you agree on this one. Oh yes, I love Quora as well. A great place to connect, learn and teach with others. Thanks for coming by on this one and have a great day!

  • Alex Jackson says:

    I run a content site and do some light SEO for a small business. Thanks for the invaluable information. I will be checking out Triberr and Blog Engage.

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Alex, welcome to Inspire To Thrive. I’m glad to hear you found the info invaluable. It inspires me to write more here. Yes, those are great blogging communities. Also, Viral Content Bee is another one and ShareBizSugar. Thank you for coming by and don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions on any of these Alex.

  • Poulomi Basu says:

    Hi Lisa,
    Even though I have had a blog for a long time, it’s been less than a year since I started to blog seriously for my business. And the first network I discovered was Viral Content Bee. It helped boost my traffic tremendously, and also showed me how blogging networks can help.
    And it also showed me the nature of these networks. It’s not just about sharing your own blog post as you could do on social media. You only get the benefits when you help other people first.
    And here’s the best part. When you have so many bloggers who share you and support you without asking you for anything, you don’t even wait for them to ask you. You share and link and support and comment anyways. Because you also want to help them.
    It’s organic and smooth, supporting each other and making friends from all over the world!

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Poulomi, interesting that Viral Content Bee was your first. I wish there were more bloggers there as well. It’s a great way to share others’ content. I love visiting new blogs from there as well to comment on. I love the organic sharing that goes on and do not like when people ask me to share something, especially if I don’t know them. I can understand if it’s a friend and they need an extra push though. Thanks for your input and have a wonderful day Poulomi 🙂

  • Hi Lisa,

    Being completely transparent, I finally *fully* realized sometime over the prior 6 months that joining blogging networks and building blogging networks is the only way to stand out in a business and blogging world of companies, corporations and conglomerates. I may not have a $100 million marketing budget to spend nor a company of 30 employees putting in 12 hours a day but I can befriend a ton of bloggers by helping them freely, I can drive Google traffic and I can thrive by finding and joining new blogging networks. For 24 hours a day, many, many bloggers are promoting my blog in many, many spots. This is not too unlike having a blogging company, except that I pay in generosity, not salary.

    Literally, the idea hit me a few months back that you, me, Dana, Anthony, Nikola and so many bloggers out there are basically in each other’s blogging companies. We may not receive a salary or work for each other but our care for each other influences us to work with each other, in order that we may all succeed with our blogs. It has been so cool to see this unfold. Again; I only deeply realized this truth in eye-popping fashion recently, though I had seen the power of outreach for a long time.

    Awesome post!

    Ryan

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Ryan, yes, there are so many big conglomerates to compete with today. I like how you say for 24 hours a day others are promoting you. That is so true! Right, we don’t help each other for the money but we work well together and enjoy helping each other out. We all have different talents and knowledge levels. It really is cool to see how it has unfolded Ryan. Thanks for your input and for always being part of our group. Make it a great day Ryan 🙂

  • Foster Senu says:

    Hello Lisa, this content is very hot. I like the fact that you mentioned Triberr.
    It’s very remarkable tool and one of my favourite. Well done

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Foster, welcome to Inspire To Thrive. Thank you. I have been using Triberr for almost a decade now. It is not as good as it once was but is still a valuable tool today for bloggers. Thanks for your input on it.

  • Dana says:

    Hey Lisa,
    Awesome post, as usual 🙂
    I appreciate the shoutout and that you included me with other wonderful bloggers. I know some of them and will have to check out the others.
    I do appreciate knowing you and being in touch with people in the blogging community. There are some amazing people out there. Even just getting to know people like you and chatting about other things and life, in general, has been refreshing. It’s just fun to get to know people from around the globe you would have never met otherwise.
    Thank you for being you, Lisa!

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Dana, you are welcome. I love getting to know others around the globe and about their cultures. It can be very interesting and fun. It can even turn into a real-life meeting and maybe an overnight stay somewhere in travel too. Thanks for coming by Dana and for the inspiration of this blog post 🙂 Have a great day!
