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.

Instagram thread

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.

    I think this is such an amazing initiative to help others and each other. I took a long break from my blogs for personal reasons and had a lit on and now I’m back I truly feel a little lost! My posts on Instagram aren’t getting seen and theres not much engagement. I’m also starting a new project based on our personal events and self love journey to help ourselves and others and once that is up and running this is where I will be! You have inspired me and motivated me to keep going in ways that you’ll probably never understand. Thank you!
