Many years ago, back when blogging became popular, bloggers created blogging networks and blog rolls, where they promoted their favourite blogs on their own blog and helped build a community of like-minded blogs and bloggers.
Many of us have forgotten that over the years. I know I have. It’s a mistake. We’re not islands, and we should never think we are.
We need to be part of a supportive and like-minded community that encourages and inspires us to write, to grow, to share, and to be part of something bigger than ourselves. It’s how we can become better writers, and better people.
So I want to get back into that practice, to build a network of like-minded blogs.
If you have a blog that’s about YOUR journey, in whatever form, then contact me to have your blog added to the network.
I’ll review it and if I think it’s suitable, I’ll add it. And you should add mine. And we’ll build a network of blogs, bloggers and their followers. We’ll share content. We’ll share readers. We’ll all journey together!
Here’s the topics that your theme might be about that will fit into this network:
- Personal growth
- Spiritual growth
- Developing as a writer
- Travel blogging
If you’re not sure if your blog fits the theme or not, get in touch with me and we’ll talk about it.
I’m going to call it The Journey Network, and once I have at least one blog that wants to join this network, I’ll create a dedicated page for it, accessible via the top menu.
I’ll also add a special RSS feed to the sidebar, to show recent posts from all members of the network.
One of the requirements for being part of the network is to do the same, to have a dedicated network page that lists all members, and an RSS feed to share recent posts from the network.
It’s going to take a bit of work, but we used to do this years ago. And building a strong and enjoyable community is going to take work. But I think it’s going to be worth it.
So get in touch if you’d like to be part of The Journey Network.
