At the start of 2017 I created a Facebook group – ‘Big Up Your Blog.’ I’m a member of several Facebook groups, but I find that there aren’t very many opportunities for people to actually connect and share their blog and social media accounts, so I started a ‘Social Saturday’ every week where participants could share their social media links, grow their following and connect with lots of other bloggers.
It’s gone from strength-to-strength, becoming the most supportive and generous community of people, and I’m very proud of it. There isn’t any of the follow/unfollow nonsense that I despise so much, there are fantastic conversations being had, people have sold books and courses because of it and I absolutely love the atmosphere created every week not only in the link-ups, but in the blog share opportunities too!
Want to grow your Twitter following? We’re having a massive link-up in the Facebook group today, and you’re all welcome to participate! Simply click on the image below and request to join, and then share your Twitter account with everyone! You don’t have to be an experienced blogger, nor have a specific theme. The only requirement to join is a willingness to genuinely engage with others – any spammers will be deleted immediately…
Not on Facebook? You can join me at my Twitter account http://www.twitter.com/suzie81blog
I’m already there! Hi Suzie!
Haha! Hi Phil!
Thanks, Suzi – I just sent in my request to join in. Looking forward to it!
Yay! Hope you enjoy!
Yep, I can personally vouch for the fact that this Facebook group is wicked awesomesauce! I think I was a member for about 3 seconds before the banter began (Ritu and Gary, I believe) and I felt like I’d stumbled into a party of best friends I hadn’t yet met. Thanks again for putting this together, Suzie!
I’m so glad you like it Traci, and thanks for being such an amazing contributor and supporter! Yes, #GaTu are certainly special people haha!
This is great Susie! Just sent a request to join your FaceBook Group
Fab! Thanks gabe – hope that you’re enjoying it!
I am Susie. I’m planning to be one of the silent few, hoping to learn by observing you veterans in action until I’m ready to join in the conversation.
Thanks for letting me participate!
Very welcome! Thanks for joining in!
How are there no comments on this post, Suzie? Sheesh! Your Facebook/Twitter community is the BEST! I’m glad to be a part of it.
Aww Susie thanks so much! You’ll see the comments come up in a minute, but I was feeling really ill over the weekend and with running the facebook and twitter stuff I didn’t get the chance to reply. I set all my comments in moderation so i can reply to each one properly, so they don’t appear until I’ve read them, replied properly and then approved them… So glad you’re enjoying it!
I’m so sorry to hear that you’re sick. Bummer. I was sick for three weeks in January. Take care of yourself!
A belated thank you my lovely!
I was otherwise engaged and missed you all yesterday. I’m sure it was fun.
Sorry you missed us April – looking forward to seeing you there in the future!
great, thanks a lot, Im really excited about blogging, this is my first post.
I’m not on Facebook but, as you know, am on Twitter so I’ll try there. 🙂 Sounds wonderful. Is there a specific, um, anything I should be doing? Is there a hashtag? Am I missing something obvious. *cringes*
Not at all my lovely – the Sunday Blog Share is the biggest thing but you’re already participating in that on Twitter…
Yes. 😁 I am.
