#socialbloggers 56 // Creating Community

Blaze On (3)

A big part of blogging is.. well.. other bloggers.

When I first set up my blog over two years ago, I knew ziltch about the community side of blogging.

Well, actually, I knew ziltch about anything. But that’s a whole different story.

I didn’t realise how big the blogging world was. It’s almost as if it’s divided into categories, or niches. Based on the topic of blogs, the age of the bloggers, the location of the blogger…

I didn’t use Twitter during my first year of blogging. I created bit of conversationΒ through my comment section and spoke to bloggers all over the world. I knew very few UK bloggers and only knew of one blogger who lived in Leeds (I’m looking at you, Laura).

It wasn’t until I joined in January 2014 that I realised how big the UK community was. There’s actually loads of bloggers in Leeds and Yorkshire. There’s loads of bloggers all over the country. And you know what? They’re really easy to find and talk to once you know how.

It’s as easy has searching hashtags, joining Twitter chats and commenting on blogs.

The only hard thing about finding and creating a community is taking the time to do it!

Anyway, enough of my babble, let’s get onto the questions and the chat.

Noor did a great job with this topic, I really liked the questions she picked and hope you enjoy reading the roundup!

Q2: How do YOU want other bloggers to support you & your work? And why?
