I created The Pay At Home Parent in February of 2018 to help you be a successful home-based business owner, blogger or side hustler. As a wife, mom and frugal homemaker, I still make a full-time income on a part-time work schedule and I know that you can too!

Do you know the benefits of networking with like-minded bloggers like you?
There are tons of reasons to get close to others who are in your shoes—and I’ll share exactly why.
First, if you want to get a headstart, you can join my Get Your Blog Together Facebook group here!
4 Reasons to Join a Blogging Facebook Group
If you haven’t joined at least one good blogger Facebook group (and I’m not talking about the self-promo groups), then here are four reasons why you should.
1. Free Help
Whether you’re brand new to blogging or you’ve been at it for a few years, chances are you don’t know everything there is to know about blogging. Plus, times change! What worked yesterday, may not work today.
Joining a free blogging Facebook group lets you get answers from people who know what they’re doing. You really can’t go wrong when you’re offered help for free!
Networking can be fun, but it’s also crucial for building your brand. How will people learn about your blog and the help you provide if you’re not getting in touch with people in your niche?
And I’m not talking about pasting links to your newest post on group walls and ghosting until you have another link to share—I’m talking about genuinely giving and getting advice from people that are in your shoes.
Another reason that networking is crucial is that when the time comes to create or sell a product of your own, you can reach out to other bloggers in your niche and ask for help marketing your products.
3. Find Clients
If you happen to offer a service (most new bloggers do—it’s how you can make money while waiting for passive income to kick in), then you just might find clients that need your help. I’ve found many of my SEO clients in Facebook groups, and it’s helped drive my income while building my brand!
4. Find Friends
Last, but definitely not least, if you’re a stay at home mom, or just don’t have time to get out of the house after work, then a blogging Facebook group can fix that. I’ve met my best friends in Facebook groups. My blogging besties know how to celebrate the wins and mourn the losses with me! They “get me.”
And I think everyone needs this. I would’ve quit blogging and stuck with offering services for the rest of my working years if it hadn’t been for my blogging friends. We all need this type of support group, and you can find that in the Get Your Blog Together Facebook group!
I’m not going to pull your arm or beg you to join us. But I will welcome you with open arms if you decide to give us a try!
We have some pros in the group who know:
- Tech support
- Business scaling
- And so much more
Come and network with us, and make some lifelong friends who will support you in your blogging journey!
