The Beauty Bloggers Society

the-beauty-bloggers-society

Hello, beauties! During a recent beauty bloggers chat on Twitter, a few of us started talking about how we don't feel that the blogging community is as supportive as it used to be. The chats, which started as a way to mingle, ask questions, share content, and grow as bloggers, had become nothing more than a free for all. It was hard to even find people to talk to as you had to slog through ridiculous amounts of links spammed in the hopes that someone, anyone, would click on it. You'd ask a genuine question and never hear an answer back. We felt that no one stopped to chat anymore or truly read each other's content. It was every blogger for themselves.

For awhile, I'd been bouncing around the idea of a blogging community in my head that was truly dedicated to beauty bloggers and helping them get seen, be helped, and make new friends. Oh, sure there are loads of beauty blogger communities on Facebook and such, but almost all of them are places where you do nothing more than drop your link and run. There's no guarantee that anyone will click on your content, no matter how good it is. Trust me when I say that unless you are established with name recognition, few people click on those dropped links.

The past few months, I've been part of a stellar blogging community on Facebook that aims to help members grow, expand their reach, and have their contents engaged with. I've loved being a part of that community and learned so much, but have often felt a little out of place being one of the very few beauty bloggers in the bunch. Sometimes it felt like beauty content was overlooked in favor of parenting blogs, DIY blogs, food blogs, and lifestyle blogs. And it was especially disheartening to receive loads of forced comments where people admitted that they really don't use makeup or skincare or any of that stuff, but, hey, nice post!

With all these things thrashing about in my mind, I decided that if I wanted a certain type of community and it wasn't out there, that I'd have to make it. So yesterday, I opened The Beauty Bloggers Society! I took all of the amazing things I loved about the blogging community I've been a part of, added my own twists, and created a space where beauty bloggers can come and really have their blogs read, their social media interacted with, and they can chat with other bloggers from all over the world.

If you are a beauty blogger, and you're interested in watching your followers grow, your engagement rise, learning new tips and tricks, and making new blogger friends, you should come and join us. However, I will warn that this is not like other groups where you just drop your links and run. You are expected to reciprocate to your fellow bloggers. You can choose what content you interact with, but you have to give back a little if you want to receive. My engagement stats increased by about 25% just on our first day open, so the system definitely works!

We have over 100 members already and it is only the second day open, so come on over and join us! See just how far you can take your blog and grow your skills to make you the best blogger you can be.

Stay gorgeous, peaches!

  10. I love that you started this and I am a part of it, although I haven't actually joined in yet. I keep saying i'll do it tomorrow and I promise I will do it tomorrow. I love exploring new blogs, I have found a lot recently via twitter, I found out there is a canadian beauty bloggers chat that I join in with and it's not nearly as fast paced as the british one. I can actually keep up and have a chat. I also love that questions are asked every 10 minutes and no one seems to spam their links at the end of the chat.
