65 Useful Facebook Groups for Bloggers & Entrepreneurs
For the longest time, Facebook and its algorithms have declared war on content creators. Because they would rather have everyone stay on their platform for as long as possible, Facebook has significantly increased the reach of pages that were meant to help bloggers get seen online.
But we didn’t give up! And soon, bloggers all over the world found refuge in Facebook Groups! And ever since, there hasn’t been a better place to gather, share our stories and frustrations, ask for help, and even promote our blogs!
Ok, so I might’ve gotten caught up in the fantasy of storytelling just now, but when I first found my way into a Facebook group for bloggers, it really felt like a refuge. I had just started blogging “properly” and to be honest with you, I had no idea what I was doing. And no one to turn to for advice.
But being in an environment where everyone is open about their strategies and wins, and they are willing to support you as well was priceless. Being an online introvert as much as I am a real-life introvert, I mostly watched from the sidelines, but that didn’t stop me from learning so much about this wonderful thing called blogging.
Since then, I’ve joined countless other groups (they do say to have more in your life of what makes you happy, so I did) and actually started to participate in them. And now I am one of those bloggers who gets to support others on their journey.
To cut a long love-letter-to-Facebook-groups short, I am a true believer that Facebook groups for bloggers are one of the best things that happened in our community, and that you should take advantage of what they offer.
Whether you are just starting out or looking to grow your successful blog even further, you can turn to these groups for advice, collaborations, support and encouragment.
Without any further ado, here is just a small portion of the Facebook Groups that I belong to that I highly recommend joining:
Here are 65 Facebook groups that every blogger should be in:
The Smart Blogging Approach
EXCITING NEWS: After years of being part of other people’s Facebook groups, I’ve decided to take the leap and start my own group.
The Smart Blogging Approach is now the central hub for my audience and for the lovely bloggers on my email list to come together and figure out a way to blog smarter, not harder. Join us here!
When you join, you don’t only get access to me but to hundreds of bloggers all over the world, in all different niches (from crocheting to sustainable living, business and travel), coming together to share their struggles and struggles, so we can learn from each other and grow our blogs.
Although technically a Facebook group for entrepreneurs (aren’t we supposed to hang around the people we want to be more like anyways?), this little group of creatives is one of my favorite places to go to when I need to feel inspired or ask some tough questions.
The host, Kimi, did a wonderful job of creating a super supportive atmosphere in this group as she offers tons of value and free advice to the participants. (It helps that she’s super smart and knowledgeable and that the people in the group are always willing to help as well!)
Blogging Like We Mean It
This is another one of those groups that offer a lot of value! Carly – the mommy blogger turned successful entrepreneur – often hosts free live trainings in the group covering everything from Pinterest to Affiliate Marketing.
Her group is full of PRO bloggers who are active in the group, answering questions and sharing wisdom – and I’ve learned a lot just by being a part of this community.
If you’re just starting out and you’re looking to connect with fellow bloggers, this group is for you. Besides great discussions that are happening in the group on a daily basis, there are also a few promo threads in which you get to share your posts or social media accounts with the other +16k members.
Overall, this is a very welcoming group with a lot of friendly faces and good advice! (P.S. It’s not as well monitored as it used to be, so there are a few people spamming the group with self-promo.)
Brand, Build + Launch
This group is for bloggers, creative hustlers and entrepreneurs that sell products and want the support of a community to help build a profitable brand.
I joined this group after starting my online shop, and it’s been a huge help to make the transition from promoting my content to promoting physical products and I highly recommend joining it if you have other side-hustles besides your blog.
Becoming A Blogger
This group is a hidden gem – super active, well-monitored (doesn’t allow self-promotion or affiliate links) and full of good advice. It currently has over 20,000 members as well.
It was started by Cate Rosales from SweetandSimpleLife.com and it’s designed to help bloggers start and grow their blogging business and make money working from home.

I list some more of my hidden gems in there, including a lot more groups aimed at online business owners and entrepreneurs, and I’ve recently updated the list to reflect groups that have shut down or opened lately.
Whether you’re a new or an experienced blogger, being a part of these groups will help you give more structure to your blog, connect you with the relevant people in your niche, help you network and build a name for yourself in the blogging community.
QUICK NOTE ABOUT GROUP RULES
When you join a new group, take a moment to familiarize yourself with the rules. Most Facebook groups don’t allow spammy self-promotion, affiliate links or messaging members without their permission.
But you’ll find that most allow you to drop your links in promo threads, or when it’s helpful to other members – so there’s still a lot to gain from taking part!
