Hello friends! Since I started blogging I have found such an abundance of resources, it has gotten overwhelming. If you are a newbie blogger too, you know what I mean! Amongst all of the resources I found were TONS of invitations to Facebook groups, and I joined them all. What the heck was I thinking?? When I joined the groups my entire Facebook feed filled up with blogging tips, tricks, questions, solutions, and most importantly, opportunities to promote my work. The only problem with all of those things was that I was never ready for those opportunities, and I never knew when they were happening. Something had to change. The first thing I did was sort through all of my groups on Facebook. You can find your groups on the left side of your computer screen when you are logged into Facebook under the “explore” drop down.
You’ll want to click “manage” at the top of the page
I opened each of the groups in a new tab so that the list in the manage tab remained in order. When I didn’t do this, the list of groups shuffled and made the process take much longer than it needed to be. Don’t ask me how I know this… 😀
If I did want to remain a part of the group, but not see the group in my newsfeed I unfollowed them. I like to be a member of groups that offer great resources, but I don’t necessarily need to see them constantly. 😉
While I was going through each of my groups, I took notes on which groups offered opportunities to promote my own work as well as opportunities to ask for help and find ways to collaborate with other bloggers. I focused my efforts on groups that would help me grow as a blogger and benefit from. Most of these groups had specific instructions on what each day was planned for and I made notes on those as well.
