***New Facebook Group for writers to mingle, share Blog posts, self-promote, expand following, and support other Bloggers. 63 Members and growing.***
Bloggers are always trying to find ways to increase their exposure and to stay in touch with and support loyal readers and fellow Bloggers. I find this to be a great challenge, particularly when following a large number of great writers.
To help with this challenge, I have started a new Facebook Group called “Faith and Family Bloggers.” I would love for as many of my followers as possible to join that Group. You can do so by clicking on the following link and submitting a join request:
By joining the group, no one will gain access to your personal Facebook Page (if you have a private account). Members of the Group will only be able to see your posts on the Group’s news feed unless you friend one of the members.
My plan for the Group is a place to share your recent Blog posts, self-promote your creative projects and achievements, connect with other Bloggers, and develop a following beyond WordPress. Facebook’s news feed layout will help a great deal in following and supporting other Bloggers and will hopefully expose members’ work to a broader audience.
While I have set the Group to “Private” initially, I may decide to change that to “Public” if it is a success. Once membership is established, I like the idea of inviting non-contributing readers to join the group so they will have a convenient source for reading material on the Group’s topics.
I HOPE VERY MUCH YOU WILL JOIN ME!
(If you don’t have a Facebook account, you can create one for free for the sole purpose of joining the group.)
Copied below is the stated purpose and rules for the Group:
Purpose: Group for writers to mingle, share Blog posts, self-promote, and expand following.
Permissible Post Topics:
While posts do not have to cite scripture or reference Christianity, they should be consistent with a Christian worldview.
A few simple rules:
1. Stay on topic.
Keep it clean and suitable for a primarily Christian audience.
Post a maximum of 3 links per week.
Visit and comment on a minimum of 2 members’ posts or Blogs per week. Consider following those members as well.
Spread the word and invite other potential members.
Only post content that you own or have legal rights to distribute.
Spamming will not be tolerated.
One warning will be given for rules violation. Second offense results in removal.
NOTE: This group may at times be set to “Private,” such that only members of the group can see posts, but the group may be changed to “Public” at any time, with or without notice or consent.
