Yes, I wrote about BloggerLuv at FamousBloggers.net under the title BloggerLuv- Giving Back to Bloggers. However, I wanted to go into depth the necessities of why such a community is valuable… especially to bloggers.
As a blogger, you know what it is like to squeeze out those articles. Sometimes you will have to read and refer to other resources. Blogging can be work for some. It is for me and I blog quite frequently on several domains of my own and guest write at other sites. The problem is that even if you are trying to connect with people, the best people are the ones that are writing articles like you do.
Yes, you can do it on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter where the audience is much broader and may be with people who are not blogging. BloggerLuv is focused on bloggers connecting. While it is a newer community and doing well, there may be some that might say:
1. If BloggerLuv gets larger, then I might just be another number. Why bother?
2. I already have joined a lot of communities. What makes BloggerLuv any different?
3. I am still a bit confused on what BloggerLuv does.
Well, pretty much I answered what the site is and if I have to explain again… re-read this article. As for joining another community, perhaps it seems daunting, but think about it- how active are you in those communities? Does the possibility of earning the loyalty of another reader or perhaps make a nice friendship sound far more enticing?
BloggerLuv is DoFollow and you can now share your links to your blog posts with the community – so you can get some link juice for your site. 🙂
A lot of people worry about signing up and feeling guilty if they cannot participate much. You are not going to be shot down if you are not a frequent user of the site. Life happens. Already, there are quite a few people I connect with on nearly a daily or weekly basis… more so than Facebook and Twitter.
Have you joined BloggerLuv? Do you like it?
For those who have not? Do you have any questions about the site or still a bit shy?
