A blog post featuring... drum roll please.... ME!

Here's a little snippet from my "day job"... doesn't it just sound miserable?


If you don't drink coffee, can you still eat it? Random questions and RELEVANT suggestions regarding blogging communities.

Friends, throughout my long history at ebsi, this question has plagued the good people of this company.  But do we really want to talk about coffee today?  I don't.  What do I want to talk about?  I'm SO glad you asked!

Today I want to discuss blogging communities.  There are literally thousands of these.  When I started blogging awhile back, I asked my friend Kalyn (who writes a south-beach friendly foodie blog called Kalyn's Kitchen) how to tap into relevant sectors of the blogosphere.  Her advice (which I avidly followed... she has over 15,000 feedburner subscribers) was to tap into blogging communities that relate to you blog's niche.

Here's an example.  I write a scrapbooking blog called Kreate by KeKe.  There is a blogging community that is exclusively dedicated to arts and crafts called Creating the Hive

"The Hive" (as it's called by it's fabulous members) is a place where professionals and hobbyists alike can import their blogs, share content, and build relationships with others who share their interests.!

Here is your homework for the day:
1. Hop on over to Google
2. Enter "{your blog niche here} blogging communities"
3. Browse away!
4. Look for communities that have a lot of activity and users... but not such high numbers that you'll get lost in the mix.  The key is to build relationships so that you can share blogging tips with others who love your niche just as much as you do. 

Sorta reminds me of the phrase: Birds of a feather flock together!

Happy blogging!
