If you’re a blogger and looking to work with a group of other bloggers to improve your blog – then there are two new groups starting up to work through the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog workbook together in the coming few weeks.
They are both for different types of bloggers and both were started in response to my post a couple of weeks back looking at how one blogger put on a version of 31DBBB for his niche and in doing so raised his profile and helped many bloggers come together for mutual benefit.
In that post I offered any blogger who wanted to try something similar a head start by offering their group 25% off the 31DBBB workbook.
There are a number of groups starting in the coming weeks but two that are launched and gathering steam are:
1. Women Bloggers
SITSgirls – this community of thousands of women bloggers are partnering up with BlogFrog and ProBlogger to put on this event for their network (and anyone who wants to join them). It’s kicking off on 19 July and looking at the hundreds of comments on the announcement post there is going to be a large group going through this together. Learn more and join them here.
2. Movie Bloggers
Anomalous Material is running a 31DBBB for movie bloggers. This one is a little more niche focused but also is gaining momentum with quite a few bloggers from that niche signing up. They’re kicking off on 2 August. Learn more and join them here.
Both of these groups have discount codes (25% off) for anyone who signs up to do it with them.
If you’re not a woman blogger or a movie blogger – there is talk of another couple of groups coming together in different niches but as I mentioned in my previous post – if you’re in a niche and can gather a group of 5 or more bloggers together feel free to contact me and I’ll set you up with a discount code too.
I’m a Russian woman blogger and I also got interested in this book: would it be useful for me, or does the book cover mostly blogging in the English-speaking part of the net?
I’m considering creating a group for freelance writers, to supplement a website that I’ve created to support same. I’ll be in touch once I reach 5 people. :)
Thanks for making me aware of this!
Being that I am not a woman or a movie blogger, I look forward to your groups coming to us in the future. Can’t wait.
i want to see the new group containing those women and movie bloggers
looks like they are effective for promotion purpose :)
I’m looking forward to the content the movie bloggers have in store. I like the very interesting concepts.
Mara – the book is written in English but as long as you’re comfortable with reading English it should be appropriate – unless the Russian blogosphere has some strange quirks that make it very different. I think the principles in it will be applicable.
I have been a member of the SITS community for quite some time. This is a wonderful support group for women bloggers. I’m looking forward to this partnership!
Ahhh. Too bad. I thought by “Movie Blogger” you meant Video Blogger. I had my hopes up. There doesn’t seem to be much said for people who make movies rather than write posts as a form of blogging – or if there is I just haven’t found it yet.
Darren, I meant if there were mostly advices on which companies to work with for ads, affiliate programs etc. (e.g. very few Russian bloggers use Google Adsense). But now that I’ve spent 2 hours on making the subscribtion page, I’m sure the book is worth buying, as that is a great piece of advice!
Mara – this ebook doesn’t really get into monetization stuff at all – but more focuses upon writing content, promoting a blog etc – hopefully it’ll work cross cultures/languages! :-)
I hope I get to attend!
Well this is the best news I’ve received in a long time. I already purchased 31dbbb, but I’m still having a hard time drawing readers. Since I’m a woman AND write about movies (also TV, books and music) I think I just hit the mother-lode!
My dog blogger group is going through this right now. We aren’t doing it in 31 days instead we are treating it as 31 individual tasks. So far I have 5 people going through the process with another 4-5 about to join. Hope to get another 5-10 by the time we are few tasks deep.
I’ve gone slightly ahead and I think the workbook is a must read for bloggers everywhere.
I wouldn’t leave a link like a douche but since its super relevant and it turned out to be a great way to kick things off for my group; we all started with this post http://dogandogs.com/5-ways-to-improve-your-blog-today and it kind of took of from there….
If there are dog bloggers out there reading this, find me on twitter, you should def join us :-)
Thnx Darren for an excellent book :-)
I promote a product in a blog post
I think a big part of engaging the relationship
with you affiliates is just keeping track of the relationship.
Nice blog. I’ve been wanting to start my own sometime but never got around to it.
