If you are the owner of a mommy blog or food blog, this party is for you! We will be joining each other’s email lists throughout the month of January in this ongoing party. Just remember to come back and follow everyone throughout the month till the party closes at 11:55 pm ET January 31st.
The inspiration for today’s party came from the news I received outlining the grim news that Facebook is making big changes again! I have read a few articles and still, it is not clear what is happening, but the news has sent the Facebook stock plummeting.
Many bloggers have experienced great stress over Facebook. Remember the early years when every Facebook follower was like gold? Everyone saw our posts. We got engagement with the sheer numbers of who liked our page. Then algorithm change after algorithm change came out of the blue.
I am new to Facebook and have been very frustrated with it. I am one of the bloggers who finally gave up on Facebook, in the traditional sense. It was too much trouble to try to keep up with. I do belong to some great Facebook groups that are a real blessing but I haven’t pursued getting new Facebook followers for a while now. Instagram and Pinterest are my go-to social media, with Pinterest where I spend most of my time.
I have come to realize that the advice that I heard from the seasoned bloggers over the years – and ignored – is the best advice. Content is king and EMAIL LISTS are essential. In theory, everyone who signs up to follow you by email really WANTS to. They expect to hear from you. They may even look forward to it. I have no idea why I was shy about it except, perhaps, that it requires more writing. But, I wish I had hopped to it and pursued email list building a long time ago.
So, in celebration of another fun Facebook changes coming down the pike… a change we may hate… how about having a blog party?
This is probably a one-time deal. I am creating this linkup to be ongoing for the whole month of January. It is for family-friendly blogs, only. I call them mommy blogs or food blogs but you know whether your content fits with “family friendly.” Since, by participating in the party, we are agreeing to follow everybody by email, it is vital that the content is something we would want to see. No adult sites, gambling, dark or political blogs allowed.
I will be re-posting the party a couple of times this month to stir up interest. Please set a reminder for yourself to come back and follow those who have joined later. Full participation will make this a great party and build all of our lists!
