15 Best Facebook Groups for WordPress Bloggers to Join

Running a blog can be lonely. You may be writing for the public eye, but what makes your blog tick is just you or a small team that you’re a part of. Even the best of us sometimes run into challenges that we just don’t have the knowledge or experience to solve on our own.

You can do it alone, but Facebook groups offer a supportive community so you don’t have to. They are a great place to go with questions and conundrums. Not only that, but you can build friendships with other people facing the same struggles as you, give or seek recommendations for products and tools, and even spend some time mutually promoting each other’s work.

Best Facebook Groups for Bloggers

Here are fifteen great Facebook groups to join if you are a blogger using WordPress, whether you are just starting out or looking to grow your successful blog even further. These groups aren’t WordPress specific, however, as WordPress is the most popular blogging platform around today, there’s a very high chance most of the members of these Facebook groups for bloggers will be using WordPress.

While these Facebook groups for bloggers are listed in order of the number of members at the time of writing, don’t shy away from smaller groups, even those smaller than the groups shared in this post – closer knit groups are sometimes able to offer better visibility than the very large groups.

1. Blogging Boost

With over 21,000 members, Blogging Boost is the largest group on our list, and is very active.

The group offers a platform for supporting one another every day through Q&A threads and celebration threads. One day a week, the group allows self-promotion on the wall. There is a group Pinterest board and a Blogging Boost community on Google+ for additional reach. Also, there is a resource for finding or sharing guest posting opportunities within the group.

2. Bloggers Supporting Bloggers

Bloggers Supporting Bloggers is a very active Facebook group with over 16,000 members. It is a great community for support and discussion, as well as sharing connections that may not be a great fit for you but could benefit someone else, such as a guest poster or a sponsorship offer from a brand.

This group has daily threads members can participate in to promote themselves and others. On Mondays, members can share a recent post. On Tuesdays, they can share a Facebook post they would like engagement on. There is a similar Twitter thread on Thursdays and an Instagram thread on Fridays. On Sundays, there is a coveted feature for “Blogger of the Week,” which group members can apply to be featured for.

3. The SITS Girls Facebook Group

SITS

The SITS Girls Facebook Group is another super active Facebook group. It is a collaboration between the blogging agency Massive Sway and The SITS (Secret is in the Sauce) Girls.

In turn, Massive Sway taps into the group’s nearly 15,000 members for brand partnership opportunities.

The group offers a platform for collaboration, asking questions, and once a week in a special thread, self-promotion.

7. Boost Your Blog

Boost your Blog

14. The Blogging Squad

Blogging Squad

With around 3,000 members, The Blogging Squad is a smaller group as far as this list goes, but that doesn’t make it any less valuable. In fact, in many ways, a smaller group is preferable, as there is a better chance you will start to recognize the members you interact with most frequently. Like other blogging groups, this one features daily promotion threads and offers a space to ask questions and connect with other members.

15. Bloggertunities

Bloggertunities

Bloggertunities is a group for swapping opportunities, such as guest posts, sponsored opportunities, and roundup features. With just 3,000 members it is a tightly-knit group for seeking advice and promoting your work.

Final Thoughts

Whether you are just getting started and need help setting up, or you’ve been blogging for years and are hoping to reach a broader audience, blogging Facebook groups are a great place to connect with others in the blogging community.

These fifteen groups are a great place to start finding and connecting with other bloggers, but this is by no means a complete list. As mentioned earlier, you may find you enjoy smaller groups best, where every person has more of a chance to have their voice heard. Or, you may prefer the hustle and bustle of bigger groups, where there is no way you will ever keep up with every conversation, but you’ll always have a wide assortment of threads to turn to.

Are you going to join any of these groups? Do you have experience as a member already? Tell us about it in the comments section below!

  1. Wow awesome curated list. I feel lonely theses days with my blog re-launch. I am going to check out some of these and get contributing like before.

  2. Thank you for this – what a great article – I’ll look forward to checking these out. I have a very small group of small business owners who have WordPress blogs who are part of the WordPress Happy community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/wordpresshappy/ and we share common challenges and I run regular short training and Q&A sessions.

    • Joe Fylan

      Thanks Vicky, I will check out your group.

  3. Thanks for this terrific list, Joe. One of the areas where I struggle is figuring out how to prioritize my time. Between connecting with other bloggers, writing posts, keeping up with the technology, and working on my product offerings, it’s a real challenge. I run 3 separate blogs, covering 3 completely different topics. Perhaps one of these groups would offer some suggestions to help me improve in this area.

    • Joe Fylan

      Hi Heather. Yes, promoting multiple blogs can be hard. If you join some of the those groups and take part in the promotional threads, you should get some help.

  4. I am going to join some of those awesome groups.

  5. Thanks for that extensive list, although I might get lost in reading in these groups 😉 !

  6. Hi,

    What I noticed about most of these groups is that they do very generic things like “everyone share their blog post on Monday” and NONE of that stuff works.

    I’m in most of these groups and have participated in those things, and it doesn’t do anything for your blog.

    When I ask an admin what their site is, they either don’t have one or the site has like no traffic. Soooooo what’s up with that?

    I love that people group together, but these admins don’t really know what they’re doing and they’re basically telling people things that don’t work.

    Why, in one thread, did like 500 people post their “latest blog post” and they all say they checked each other out. So I posted mine, checked out like 15-20 ppl’s sites. You know how many clicks I got that day? 2. FREAKING TWO. I did it with one of my side blogs that I stopped working on years ago, so that’s how I know it was so bad.

    Some of the group owners aren’t very nice either. If they think you know too much (I’ve been blogging for like ten years, get paid to do it and know a lot from working FOR big site owners), they kick you out!

    I helped so many people, but once I said “ah, that doesn’t work” the group owners get mad and kick me out.

    Sorry for being so honest, but darn, I’ve had it with these group owners who don’t even have a successful blog, but they wanna tell people how to run theirs.

    No wonder people only get 50 clicks a day on their dang site. SHEESH!!!

    • Good grief. Sheesh is right. There are a couple groups out there that reciprocation is not forced but expected… I enjoy participating in Blog Support Group. Keep up the great work.

    • Hi Jenn, I’m sorry you are having a bad experience in various blogging groups. Not every group is created just for promotion, many are support groups for when you need help with something related to your blog or business.

      I think it’s a little harsh to say admins have no idea what they are doing. I have a pretty successful blog and my group is pretty happy with what I (and the rest of the admins and group members) provide for them, which is mainly support and feedback on the specific topic of design.

      Like most groups, our group also has a weekly promotion thread, but that thread is mainly a courtesy to our members so that they have a place to promote their latest post as we do not allow them to promote any other day of the week. This is to keep the focus of the group on helping each other out and not just on self-promotion. As for people not reciprocating in those threads, since there is no way to enforce such a thing, how is it fault of the admins?

      As a group owner, I take great pride in providing a community of support and help for my members as much as possible and I know many other group owners feel the same way. Depending on what your goals for joining groups are, I hope you give some new groups a chance. 🙂

  7. Joined them all😊

  8. So sad that GirlBoss Bloggers was recently shut down by Facebook… 🙁 loved that group so much. Thank you for some ideas of other places to check out!

    • Why did they get shut down? I was also a member, I got great feedback and loved that group!! 😔
      Great post about groups, thanks for sharing!!

  9. I really appreciate you including Blog Beautiful in your list Joe, it’s an honor to be mentioned alongside these amazing, supportive groups!

  10. Thank you for including The Blog Loft in this list! It’s so great that there are so many amazing communities for bloggers to connect with each other.

  11. Great list thanks for this I’m keen to work through and join them all!
