Since the Pet Bloggers Blog Hop is all about Community Building I think this is a good place to have this discussion so I can reach as many of you as possible!
One of the big discussions last weekend at BarkWorld was finding a legitimate place for the Pet Community to get together and interact in a meaningful way with one another. One of the things I really try to keep in mind with our blog is creating a community actually it is my number one goal. I try to be as inclusive of everyone as possible if you are an animal lover you are welcome to visit our blog even if you don’t have one currently.
So where to find this legitimate meeting place where everyone can join in the conversation?
With Facebook having a policy against Pets having their own profile page on facebook at anytime your pets profile can be completely erased with no warning.
Then there is twitter where there is no rule against your pet having their own account and some of our anipals truly love this platform for others the chief complaint is you feel disconnected and can’t connect in a meaningful way.
Meet Blog Frog. I have been a member there for quite some time because a friend invited me to check it out but I didn’t understand ti so basically wrote it off as something I wasn’t interested in. I was on facebook today and a friend had posted a link to their blog frog discussion so I decided to check it out. I really like the format it is clean and easy to use and really fosters a sense of community so I played around with it today and created my own community page so we can all interact! I really hope that this is a tool and a community that we can all participate in even if you are not a blogger yourself and not on twitter.
What is Blog Frog?
BlogFrog is more than just another social media site, we turn blogs into communities. It is a unique and powerful way to connect with your readers and fellow bloggers, join and create online communities, gain exposure for your blog. You don’t need to have your own blog to join in on the fun! A BlogFrog Community is a place where readers can interact with other like-minded readers and get to know each other better.
