Let’s Build a Community!
Hello everyone, today I thought I would do something a little different and share my thoughts on current events, along with what I’ve been working on behind the scenes.
Starting a Community
When I rebranded as Join The ME Project, one of my main goals was to create a community. I’ve discussed this a few times already. But I truly believe that blogging shouldn’t be a competition. It should be about creating strong bonds with like-minded individuals.
The Facebook Group
This thought process and mindset spawned The Community Facebook group. I created this group for the bloggers, influencers, and creators. We are all at various stages of development and growth but that doesn’t mean we can’t lend a helping hand.
Within the group, you can find resources, weekly threads, and Q&A sessions. Feel free to join a growing Facebook group!
Creation of an RT account & Threads
So many of us get burned out because we’re constantly worried about stats. Added on by the pressure of people who follow/unfollow and brands with unrealistic expectations. Instead, we should celebrate each other’s milestones because in the general span of things, we are a small community. Wouldn’t it be better to ignore what we have no control over?
But to combat the negativity, I want to make sure that I do my part. Today, on Twitter I’ve created an RT account that’s also attached to the Facebook Group.
I know one of the biggest struggles about what we do, is feeling like our work doesn’t get seen or pushed in front of a big enough audience. While this account is starting off at the bare minimum, I’m hoping with your help, it will grow.
Use What You Have to Highlight Others
I wrote about it today in the FB group, but there will be one new change that I will be adding to my Instagram. Each month, I will post a thread on FB entitled, Instagram Highlight. Once a week, I will randomly pick someone to highlight on my IG feed. You just have to be a member of the group and following me on IG.
That’s really all I have to share with you today, please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
