But more often than not, most of these groups are populated with mom bloggers and older bloggers, who don't really share my niche. The great thing about being a lifestyle blogger is that you don't really have a niche. I blog about college, I blog about fashion, I blog about shopping, I blog about New York, I blog about my sorority, I blog about my sister's wedding. Anything I'd really like. What I don't blog about, however, are my non-existent kids.
So when I share my latest blog posts, photos and social media channels in these groups, I do meet a ton of other bloggers. But more often that not, they have nothing in common with me, and I discover blogs with tales of stories of their kids, recipes for cooking for their family, or sharing photos of a family vacation. And while I do appreciate and enjoy mom and family blogging, I'm just not there in my life right now (obvs, god bless).
So one of my favorite bloggers, Annaliese from Southern Belle in Training, and I got to talking about how we wished there was a place for millennial bloggers to share our posts, connect and get to know each other, and the idea of the Millennial Blogger Network was formed. Strictly millennial bloggers - in their teens and twenties, who love blogging about lifestyle, college, DIY, fashion, beauty, and anything really.
And it's fantastic: it's introduced me to some fantastic bloggers, including Dana of Seersucker Sass who we asked to join us as an admin! In just a short week or so, we've grown to around 70 members and we continue to grow every day. If you're a millennial or college or lifestyle blogger and you're interested in joining, search Millennial Blogger Network on facebook and request to join, one of the admins will accept you as soon as we get to it.
It's such a great way to get to know other bloggers, find new collaborations and promote your own blog, and in the past week or so, I've met more bloggers than I could even imagine. I encourage any of you who are interested in joining to look for the group on facebook and request to join!
