8 useful networking websites for bloggers

23rd September 2014

Networking

Networking is one of the most important ways of promoting your website. It’s a great way to find new blogs to read, to make new friends, and/or to connect with brands.

Today I am going to share with you 8 websites that I have found really useful for networking. So, in no particular order:

1. Blog Matter

When you sign up to Blog Matter you will receive an email each week with three websites to comment on. In return, three other bloggers will comment on your website.

2. 20 Something Bloggers

A forum for bloggers who are in their 20s. (No longer online)

3. Better Blogger Network

A catalogue and forum for bloggers. (No longer online)

4. blogcatalogue

Similar to Better Blogger Network.

5. Blogionaire

Selects a blog every day to feature on it’s home page.

6. ListenUp

Posts a tweets every time you write a new blog post containing a link to your blog.

7. Nerd Listings

A collection of links to various different websites.

8. Joe Blogs Network

A blogging network that helps you connect with brands and invites you to blogger meet ups.

Have I missed any out? What’s your favourite website for networking?

    This is a really handy list. I’ve been on a blog network joining spree to hopefully help me keep my blog updated and in the same place for longer than a few months, so this is much appreciated.

    I would also recommend The SITS Girls (thesitsgirls.com) for female bloggers. Their blog has been amazingly helpful for me, even though I’m technically a veteran blogger! πŸ™‚

    This is very useful! I’ve saved it for reference, thanks loads πŸ™‚

    I know a few of them, so thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ I’m also on a few dutch forums which are related to beauty/fashion. πŸ˜‰

      Regional/national forums are great because that way you can find out about blogger meet ups and other events that are going on in your area.

  5. πŸ™‚ Thank you! I knew some of them but not all!
    Networking may be good, in case the members (really) are active..
    We could add maybe the popular Bloglovin? although I wish…. many would use it for quality instead of quantity….

    • Holly

      Yes! BlogLovin is fantastic, both for promotion and for finding new bloggers. Although their recommended blogs section drives me mad because it keeps recommending me blogs that haven’t been updated in years!

      • You’ve got a point there! B)
        and I have also noticed those who click to add in a rapid method .. but when I check back and see they follow over 3K and are followed by a 100 .. it tells me something! πŸ˜€ Anyway, quality over quantity and yay for like-minded bloggers!!

  6. All of the sites you listed above are too good!
    Thanks for listing them down, Holly!
