Creating a Community of Bloggers / Editorial Help?

    Hello All,

    I want to begin a new blog in which I talk about my personal life experiences, but unfortunately, I have a tendency to overshare or ramble. My old life coach created a “community” with two other bloggers who all read and critique each other’s work, which she found very helpful, and encouraged all of them to keep posting regularly. I couldn’t join her group because their group is strictly for women. Suggestions on creating this kind of community for myself? I don’t care about gender, I just want a second or even third pair of eyes on what I write, and I’m more than happy to do the same for others. Help / suggestions?

    Hi shyhustler,

    You can add followers to your WordPress account and assign them roles.

    Hey shyhustler!

    A Facebook group is a hassle-free way to start a community of bloggers who want to share feedback. Start a group here.

    To get it going, you can start by inviting people you know who might be interested, or reach out in already existing communities of WordPress bloggers.

    I think it’s great what you’re doing! I love to get the perspective of a few trusted people before publishing a post. I always find ways to improve what I’ve written!

    Good luck!



    A friend of mine started something similar on WordPressdotcom and created a separate site to his main blog and used the P2 theme so that it was more forum-like. He also made the site Private so that only invited users could see and post on the site.

    If you don’t want to open a second (or third) site, another option to query feedback from your trusted friends before posting is using the “Request Feedback” option in the Writing Helper module. I don’t believe that this feature is available in the new Post Editor, but it can be sent from the WP Admin dashboard. Here’s more on that

    Hope that also helps.



    One more: You can also participate in the weekly Community Pool on The Daily Post, which was created just for this purpose.
