Facebook Group for Mom Bloggers
I have to say that my favorite part of this entire blogging journey is making connections with other mom bloggers & feeling like part of a mom blog society!
And I don’t mean only moms who blog about mom things – they can – of course; I have my parenting blog over at Mamma, it’s Okay & I love connecting with other mammas blogging about family life.
But I also create relationships with moms who blog about food, health, blogging, mindset, & just about anything else under the sun.
If you have kids & you are a mommy blogger I want to connect!532 Pinterest Friendly Keywords
I learn new things every single day & most of you are much more talented and creative than I am.
Seriously though – I love when I get a FB message from another mom blogger wanting to connect or ask for my advice.
It makes me so happy when I open up my email and see that one of my subscribers has emailed me back; because they aren’t just my “list” – they are my colleagues and friends.
It may sound like I don’t have any friends in real life; I do – trust me – but I love the world of blogging & why wouldn’t I get along with others with that same love?
These are the exact reasons why I decided to create my Facebook Group called Mom Blogger Friends.
Why should you join?
Because I’ll be there? Okay; maybe you’ve just stumbled upon my blog & don’t really know me, so this isn’t enough of a reason (yet).
The group is a place for like minded mammas to come together and support one another.
You have a place in our group if you are a brand new blogger with only one post, a blogger who’s getting a good grasp on this whole blogging thing, or even a blogger with thousands and thousands of followers.
If you are a Mom Who Blogs & you want to be Friends. You can Join Mom Blogger Friends!
I’m somewhere in the middle of that group & I’m still learning each and every day.
I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of money on courses & I’ll be there to answer any questions that you may have about blogging.
I’ll be throwing out some tips and tricks exclusive to the group too!
Can I promote my Blog?
You sure can! I have daily and weekly threads for you to participate in.
Also; as soon as you join you can introduce yourself on the main thread!
That is the only time you can publish a link to the main thread – so you should definitely take advantage! The rest of the time you’ll need to use threads.
You can, however, ask a question anytime you’d like on the main wall.
You can use a link to one of your posts to answer a question that someone else has asked (as long as it helps the author & isn’t just for spam).
Threads in Mom Blogger Friends
I’m going to give you the quick schedule first & then I’ll break down each thread for you.
- Blog Post Share (10 Above)
- Pinterest Repin (10)
- Blog Post Comment (5 Above)
- Instagram Save + Like
- Pinterest Click Through All
- Monday: Pinterest Follow All
- Wednesday: Facebook Follow All
- Friday: Instagram Follow All
- Saturday: Request Anything
These threads are posted every morning around 3:00 AM (MST).
Blog Post Share (10 Above)
I’m a part of many blogging groups & I don’t like to participate in threads that are going to take me an hour to complete.
This is why I have the “10 above” feature. For this one, I wanted everyone to get at least 10 shares. You can share on Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter for these threads.
Pinterest Repin (10)
This thread doesn’t have the “above” rule because you want to make sure to pin to relevant boards.
If you don’t have a “health” board; but someone posts a pin that is about health you shouldn’t be pinning it (unless you create a board).
I don’t want you to have to create boards left and right; so find at least 10 pins that are relevant and pin those!
Blog Post Comment (5 Above)
This is another thread that could take forever to complete if you have to comment on ALL blogs.
You will comment on the 5 above you & expect at least 5 comments on your post from the 5 below you! For me, 5 comments a day is doable (100 not so much!)
Instagram Save + Like
I wanted to include an instagram thread in my group. I love instagram and am currently working on my following there – so this thread is perfect if you are like me!
Saves are POWERFUL on instagram – I want you to have this boost on your posts!
Make sure to remove the UTM (anything after the ? mark in your link).
Pinterest Click Through All
I love CT threads because they are the easiest to complete.
They do take longer because you need to stay on the page for at least 2 minutes; but you can do many at a time.
I typically click on 10 at a time – do something else for about 5 minutes and go back through them. (I’m actually multitasking & working on a couple right now while writing this!)
These threads help BOOST your pin (it’s not really about getting a reader; although I have found great blogs on CT threads!)
These are how we stay connected with one another & meet our new members each week!
I think the follow-all are self-explanatory so I’m going to focus on the Request Anything thread.
Monday: Pinterest Follow All
Wednesday: Facebook Follow All
Friday: Instagram Follow All
Saturday: Request Anything
This is one of my favorite threads! You can use this post to promote anything you are working on.
I wouldn’t promote a blog post because you have daily threads for that (although I wouldn’t say anything if you did).
You can promote your products, your FB groups or Instagram Pods, or your social media accounts.
You can request lots of things including feedback on your blog, affiliate sales (linked with a blog post), email subscriptions, and so much more. Really you can ask for anything here.
Those are the threads that I currently have going on; but I am always open to your feedback and recommendations – if you want a thread; let me know – & I’ll most likely add it.
The threads close at 10:00 PM (MST) & you have 24 hours to complete them. You’ll mark done when you are finished with your part of the thread.
As the group grows; the threads may change a little bit or new ones may be added.
Now of course; FB group rules have been created & modified due to some not so nice players. So – I do have to take some time to share the rules with you.
These are also posted to the top of the announcements within the group for your reference.
- All members are required to review the rules.
- Please refrain from sharing content that can be seen as controversial or infringe on others’ beliefs. This just means: Don’t start drama.
- We are a full participation group! Do not drop your link in a thread and then leave; it is not fair to gain without reciprocating. Members will be given 3 warnings before being removed.
- Absolutely no inappropriate content. we also do not allow any offensive photos that illustrate SEX, DRUGS, RELIGION, POLITICS.
- Self-promotion (EXCLUDING INTROS – SEE BELOW), spam, follow for follow/like for like, and irrelevant links aren’t allowed and will be removed.
- Follow Admins and Moderators: We work hard daily to ensure this is a productive group and address each issue, while maintaining to be active in each thread. In exchange, we ask you to follow us permanently.
- No UTM or Tracking Info: PLEASE make sure there is no “UTM”, “taken by”, or additional verbiage in your link. Delete the “?” and everything after when posting an IG link. Photos with UTM info can be skipped for safety.
- Do not share direct affiliate links. You can share a link to a post with them as long as it’s helping the original author. If it comes across as spammy – it will be deleted!
BE KIND —- Overall; this is a place for friendship and relationship building. Please be KIND to one another.
Contacting Admins + Mods: Please, reach out if you can’t find an answer!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
✅ Read each thread’s rules before you participate
✅ Every thread requires that you type DONE as a reply to your original comment when you’ve completed the required engagements.
This is mandatory as it’s how admins check threads for completeness. If you miss this step you will be considered overdue for the thread as admins will not know you are done.
✅ Leave only links to personal blogs. If you’re leaving links from sites or social media accounts that aren’t personal blogs the link and the person will be removed.
✅ Self promotion does not belong on the wall. Please keep your links to the appropriate threads.
✅ I have the right to remove a link if I think the post does not fit well with a thread.
✅ Do not leave the same Pin in a Re-pin post more than once – it’s hard to keep posting to a relevant board.
Threads will close at 10:00 PM MST time (i.e. Phoenix Time) – They should be completed within 24 hours (unless otherwise stated).
- If you feel someone has not followed through with their engagement please contact admin – do not call them out in public – this isn’t kind.
- You can ALWAYS post questions to the wall.
- Please participate in the threads you sign up for. We are all Mom’s so if something comes up and you need an extra day – just reach out to admin and let us know. Of course, it can’t happen all the time, but we will be understanding.
I don’t want to remove you from the group & I’ll always reach out to you before I do, but please don’t break the rules.
I can’t wait to see you inside! Come on over & join us in Mom Blogger Friends right now (I’m sure I’ll approve you pretty quickly!).
Participate. Meet other Moms who Blog & network, network, NETWORK.
