Why BloggerLuv is Great for Bloggers
Ever since I started blogging, I have always been fascinated with blogging communities. The problem is that there are probably hundreds of them online, and many of them aren’t worth the trouble of joining. All require some sort of registration process, and then you need to verify your blog, and or display some image somewhere on you pages.
In order to avoid making my blog look like a mess of small little images, I simply dropped many of the blogging communities like a bad habit. Recently, however, I was reading Basic Blog Tips (if you are a new blogger, you should check it out), and noticed Ileane (the author) mentioned a blogging community called BloggerLuv. I decided to check it out.
Why Join BloggerLuv?
To put it simply, BloggerLuv is a blogging community, created by and run/managed (at the moment) by John Sullivan. What he has created is a community of great bloggers who promote, share, chat, and help others with blogging.
This means that whether you are new to blogging, or have been blogging for many years, you will be able to benefit from joining BloggerLuv. The registration process is simple and no image, or validation is required to be placed on your blog.
When joining BloggerLuv, ensure your user ID matches your Twitter ID. I had to delete my account and re-sign up with the user ID that matched my Twitter ID.
Once you join, you will find many great bloggers that share the same passion about blogging as you do. If you have an issue with your blog, you can ask, and someone will probably provide some help.
The best part about BloggerLuv is the ability to promote not only yourself as a blogger, but also your blog. You can submit posts from your blog to the BloggerLuv community, that can help you, not only obtain feedback, but also visitors. The post links you submit to BloggerLuv are dofollow links, unlike many blogging communities.
As you submit links to your posts, so will the other bloggers who have joined the community, so you will be able to read and comment on posts that you may not have read before.
With all that is mentioned above, I do have some minor issues with BloggerLuv. The first one being that the site isn’t exactly well designed, and does lack a certain flow. After I first signed up, it took a little bit for me to become familiar with the site as a whole. I wasn’t sure what I was to do as I couldn’t find any help on the site.
The second issue I have is that the BloggerLuv community site – where you submit your posts – requires a second, additional, login ID to access it. While this isn’t a major concern, it can be tedious to log into both sites each time.
The above two issues are really minor compared to the benefits of joining BloggerLuv. If you own a blog, I highly recommend you join the BloggerLuv community.
