Admit it – you’re kind of lonely. Blogging full time, or even part time can be a lonely business.
99% of your time, is spent staring at a bright computer screen typing away in your yoga pants. In the beginning, you feel as if you’re pouring your heart and soul onto your blog, but nobody is listening. Everything is trial and error because there is no one to sit next to you to help through tough decisions.
We’ve all been there at some point. And many of us are still there.
But, that’s where Facebook groups come in – they are like your virtual community of friends. Specifically, creative entrepreneurs and blogging friends! Although it’s definitely not the same as grabbing a coffee with your bestie in person, it’s the next best thing.
- Choose the group where “your people” hang out.
- Participate in the same groups consistently.
- Only promote yourself in threads or when appropriate.
- Always abide by the 7 Facebook group rules of etiquette.
- Ask for support when you need it.
- Give more than you take.
Since Facebook groups aren’t restricted to any specific area of the world, you can find 24/7 support. Hundreds, and thousands of people connect together in Facebook groups over their shared interests.
Today we want to share 30 Facebook groups specifically for creative entrepreneurs and bloggers.
To keep track of all the different groups, we’ve created a weekly promo calendar just for you. Each week day has a list of groups that allow you to promote your blog posts. This is a valuable tool to grow your blogging community and get your voice heard.
BONUS: DOWNLOAD THE FACEBOOK GROUP PROMO CALENDAR TO KEEP TRACK OF YOUR WEEKLY ENGAGEMENT!
Tip: Print the promo calendar, and laminate it. Use a dry-erase pen to mark off each group as you participate and share in it. Erase and start fresh each Monday morning!

Fantastic lists – FB groups have been game changers for me – not only providing great answers but also introducing me to awesome people!
I love love love this so much! Just joined like half of them and can’t wait to participate in more groups!
Very useful list. I have to pin to pinterest. Thanks :)
I am a part of so many of these! They are AMAZING for growing your blog!
Wow great list! Thanks so much I am pinning this for sure to come back to later!
I admin for Teamwork blog group and they rock as do all; these. I am all about helping others.
Brilliant post! As a new blogger I am slowly learning about these different Facebook groups and have been thrilled with the participation levels & connections I am making with other bloggers. They are super helpful and everyone is so supportive – glad to know there are a few more that I need to join! Thanks for this post!
This is an awesome roundup of groups! I’ve pinned this so I can come back and look through them better and find some great groups to join! I also can’t wait to start using the calendar! This post is packed with great info!
Great roundup, 30 groups is a lot! I really enjoy Facebook groups but I have a hard time connecting with others, especially when the group is so large. I need to be more active in the groups I am in but can’t seem to make time when I feel like I have a million other things to do.
Hey Melanie! Maybe try joining some of the smaller groups in the list then :) I would definitely download the calendar though so you can promote your blog posts more.
Facebook or any online groups for support are crucial! I just got into this recently and adore the support and love of other bloggers! A new fab world!
This is a great comprehensive list! I love joining groups to find like minded people. It’s sometimes challenging to discuss blogging with friends who don’t have one so it helps to have your pals on social media to bounce ideas off.
Thanks! There are a lot of new-to-me groups here. I’m always searching out for my tribe. Its a hard road.
Thanks for sharing this! I have certainly benefited from Facebook groups
Thank you for providing all these great groups and tips!
What a great resource! Thanks for sharing this!
Thank you so much for sharing this list! Facebook Groups really have been a game changer for me! I’ve met so many amazing bloggers and learned so much through them! I’m a member of a few of these but definitely interested in checking out a few others! Also love the calendar!! :)
What a great post! Thank you so much for compiling this list. I’ve shared it on a few of my Pinterest boards and hope to see you around in some of the FB groups. :)
xoxo, erin | sandsunandmessybuns.com
This is a great list. I love that there are many support groups for bloggers.
I didn’t know about some of these! I’ll check them out. Attending conferences has helped me meet others.
What an amazing list of groups – I’ve pinned this so I can come back later and have a look at which groups I want to join x x
Great list! I just joined a few more groups. And YES to the calendar! It can be a challenge to keep it all straight. Thanks.
There are so many groups that I adore being a part of on Facebook. If not for them, I doubt I would have a career!
I love this post! I was already a member of a couple groups but I’m going to go back through and find more that work for me. I’ve been blogging for a few years but I can always use a boost or support. Thanks.
What ana amazing list!! I love being able to network with other bloggers and entrepreneurs, so much fun to help build up others.
Oooh I’m in a few these and I will definitely be joining a few more!
These are great resources for bloggers! Awesome job on pulling this list together. I’m in some of these and others I’ve never heard of.
This is a great list with many groups I was not aware of! Thanks for sharing!
What a great list!!! There are a few I’m not a member of so I will have to check them out!!!
What a great list! I love Facebook Groups, but really didn’t start using them until this year. They have had a tremendous impact on my blogging.
These are some really useful resources for bloggers. It’s so important to keep track of your traffic when it comes to running a successful blog.
What an awesome list! Thanks so much.
Wow, so many great blogger groups that I had no idea existed! Thank you for sharing, now excuse while I go join them.
What a great tip I can’t wait to join some of them but I’m not Ardian !

So many awesome groups here! Discovering FB groups has been a game changer.
I’m a part of SO many groups but I really need to reevaluate and see which are working best and which aren’t! Love your picks!
I’m in some of these but I’ll have to check out the others! Thanks for sharing
I have learned SO much from blogging groups! Even as someone who had a “hobby blog” for years, I still had so much to learn. It’s awesome to build relationships while learning from each other. (I’m in a bunch of the groups you mentioned. ;) )
This is a great list. As a new blogger I underestimated the power of facebook groups. I am so glad I have chosen some of this list.
Thanks for putting together this great post! I agree that Facebook groups are an amazing way for bloggers to find support and even to make friends. blogging can be a lonely business!
Wow, such an amazing post. Thank you for sharing. I joined couple of them. Thank you ❤️
Great List! I am part of some of these, now off to join others

I’ve found some great general blogging groups, but haven’t yet found a great one specifically for my niche. If I had the time I would create one! But maybe someday.
I am in 4 of the groups you listed and I love all of them. Just joined another one today:)
I’m in some of these, but there are a TON I still need to check out! Thank you for rounding these up!!
I am in several of these, and found a few new ones, too! Thanks for the list!
Thanks for sharing the 30 facebook bloggers.
