I haven’t always been Facebook’s biggest fan. But, I think they’ve nailed it by letting you create and join groups to share interests, solve problems together and celebrate wins. So, you’ve guessed it – I’ve started one for us and you can join our Facebook group right away!
As a member of ahem…a few, ok, you’ve got me… several groups, I noticed there were lots about history and blogging tips but not one about history blogging tips. And, I think we’re a niche community that can come together with a unique set of questions and knowledge.
The Smart History Blogging Group is private and designed for anyone who has a history blog or is thinking of starting one soon. I think the best groups are ones where everyone helps each other using their experience, support and enthusiasm.
History bloggers from all of the world, have asked questions like’ how long should a blog post be?’, ‘Should I be using images for commercial use’ and ‘how do you finish a history blog without it feeling like a cliff-edge’
And, I’ll be honest, it’s exciting for me to have a place to listen and hear where you’re getting stuck. Plus, I can give direct 1-1 help either within the group or on messenger and ‘just for you’ resources.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s start Smart History Blogging together.
Head on over, join our Facebook group (please read the group rules too : ) and introduce yourself to an army of supportive, experienced history bloggers. Then use #ask and #tip at the start of your posts.
And, if you want to promote your blog please also join The History Bloggers Promotion Group, where you can spread the love and post links for sharing across social media.
If you’ve got any questions about the group please get in touch with me.
