I can’t believe it’s been over a decade since the Blogging Organizers Facebook group was created!
What began as a space for professional organizers, productivity consultants, and blogging enthusiasts has organically grown into a vibrant community with over 600 members. Remarkably, 230 of these individuals have been actively engaged since September 1, showing the group's lasting appeal.
Facebook groups weren't all that popular in the beginning, and not a lot was going on. That all changed in 2015, when I took a course that included membership in a dynamic Facebook group. Seeing the effectiveness of daily engagement by the group leader was a turning point for me, and I was inspired to adopt a similar approach with Blogging Organizers.
I started posting seven days a week at first, cutting back to five days a week after about a year. This steered the way for Blogging Organizers to become a thriving online hangout for bloggers in the organizing industry, whether they’re just getting started or 20+ year veterans.
The Weekly Blog Share stands out as the group’s most popular activity. Each Monday, members are invited to post a link to one of their blog posts which they’d like others to share. Those who blog weekly capitalize on this opportunity to drive traffic to their latest content, while others use it to revive interest in older but evergreen posts.
Some members find this networking activity so beneficial that they this intentionally block time on their schedules for it.
On other days, I share a variety of blogging ideas, tips, articles, guest blogging opportunities, or announcements, catering to the diverse needs and interests of the group members.
Further networking takes place through engaging polls, discussions, and the open exchange of questions and resources.
