My Love of UK Parent Bloggers on Facebook

I love being a blogger and as much as ‘Mummy Bloggers’ get bad press at times, I love being a parent blogger – and I love being part of the blogging community. A huge part of that for me is the UK Parent Bloggers Facebook Group, a place where Emma invited me to admin a few years ago and which, since then, has come to be a second home to me.

The UK Parent Bloggers Facebook Group is a place where so many bloggers can come together, chat about all things blogging and often NBR (not blogging related – thanks Jade!). It’s a place where the blogging hierarchy doesn’t exist and where we can all help each other, share opportunities and support each other.

Blogging can be quite an isolated thing – working away at your laptop, by yourself for hours each day but for me, with Facebook open in a new tab and my notifications pinging constantly I always have company – and I always have something to do. You can’t get lonely – or bored – when you submerse yourself in the blogging community, and I love that.

It’s also great to have somewhere to ask questions when you have them – after a quick Google search, obviously – and where you can reflect, post those random blogging thoughts and where I, personally, can post blogging tips, sharing the knowledge that I’ve gained since I started blogging.

As a blogger it can be hard to find a place you belong. You may be more lifestyle than family, you may have such an eclectic mix of posts that you don’t feel like you tick any boxes or you might just have a constant stream of giveaways and reviews and not feel like anyone really cares about what you write. However you feel, and whatever your niche, it’s nice to have a place to go, to chat and to just be. For me, the UK Parent Bloggers Facebook Group is just that.

It’s an all encompassing space for bloggers of any niche – they just have to be parents. There’s no link dumping, no follow threads – literally just a place to chat and it has, without a doubt, made me love Facebook again.

So, if you are a blogger – and a parent – and want to find somewhere to learn, chat and meet other bloggers – check out UK Parent Bloggers. Just give me a nudge to say you’ve requested to join and I’ll approve asap. Welcome to one of my favourite places online.

    It’s a lovely place! It’s nice to find such a friendly, helpful community that doesn’t have any cliques. I’ve also learnt so much from it! So thanks for taking the time to run it so well. 🙂

    Love this Donna. As a new blogger this group has been absolutely invaluable. I’ve learnt so much just from reading conversations, but also asking a few questions myself. You do a fab job keeping everyone in line ???? It’s been so lovely knowing I’ve got a place to go where I can always feel welcome. x

    Ahhh it’s literally my favourite group on Facebook and like a second family – you know the family who ‘get’ what you do, rather than your real family who haven’t got a clue! Thank you for making it the group it is, and the group we want it to be. Much love! xx

    I was delighted to have been directed to this wonderful network of interesting, helpful and kind, like-minded bloggers. I’m hoping it will help lead to forging new friendships within the blogging community with people who get what it’s all about. Shame it’s taken over 3 years before knowing about it! Really hope I get to meet some of the members at Blogfest this year! X

    Love this group Donna and a huge thank you to everything that you do for the group. Your little tips are invaluable Donna and despite me blogging for 3 years now, there is still so much to learn x

    It is the best group imo. I used to hang out in UK bloggers, but there’s too many bloggers who write in niches I’m not interested in, too many threads, and not enough chat compared to when it was smaller. A lot less personal than UK parent bloggers.

    Ahh Donna, you do such a good job with the Facebook group! It is such a welcoming place and I didn’t quite realise until recently that not all FB groups have the same friendly and supportive feel. Definitely something to be proud of and hold on to! THANK YOU! For everything.
