BLOGGERS OF AUSTRALIA
MY NEW FACEBOOK GROUP
Guys! Guys! Guys!!! I’ve decided that 2018 is my year. I mean, sure, my newish car keeps breaking down and I don’t see that changing anytime in the foreseeable future, but other than that, this is my year. I’ve never felt quite so excited for the future and motivated to achieve my goals, which is why I’m forcing myself to try and do everything that I want – even if it does seem unachievable or impossible.
With that being said, Bloggers of Australia wasn’t necessarily something I dreamt about. I have been wanting to make a Facebook group for a while, but I wasn’t planning on focusing on just us Aussies. In fact, today I was
complaining to discussing with my friend Kate about how there weren’t many Facebook groups for Aussie bloggers, and she suggested that I make my own. (Make sure you check her out, she’s not just a pretty face.) I fell in love with the idea immediately – I mean, why not?! Why shouldn’t I make my own? I feel like even just last year I would have been clouded with self doubt, but like I said… 2018 is my year. Even if nobody else joins, I’m still doing something I want to do, and I’ll never know unless I try.
I want Bloggers of Australia to be a fun, family-like community, where the main goal is to help everybody grow their blogs. Where you can promote your posts & social media, ask any questions you may have regarding the world of blogging, or find other bloggers to collaborate with. Hell, I’m happy if you even just want to use the group to complain to other Aussies about how Friends isn’t on Australian Netflix. Seriously, what’s with that? Could I *be* anymore annoyed about that?
This is mainly for me to look back on, but you may be curious about what the hopeful future of this group looks like. Right now, I’m setting 5k members as a goal – which seems like a lot considering we’re sitting pretty at 3 right now, but not unachievable. I also really want to focus on finding more Australian brands to work with you guys for blog sponsorships and collaborations – and that is going to be my ultimate goal. I would love-love-love people being able to view being in the group as an opportunity to grow & succeed. I’m envisioning myself posting a casual “Hey, so this brand just contacted me looking for 5 Aussie bloggers to work with – who’s interested?”
I would absolutely love it if you joined Bloggers of Australia – and here’s the link to do so! Please don’t hesitate to start chatting away – as I’ve literally made this just minutes ago there isn’t a whooole lot going on… but it has to start somewhere. Introduce yourself, I’d love to get to know all of you!
