Episode 120: Community: The Biggest Game-Changer for Your Blog with Megan Porta and Bethany Smith

Listen to episode 120, we chat with Bethany Smith from Food Blog Usability, about how community can benefits bloggers who work solely online and how joining a community for bloggers can help you grow relationships and work at building your business.

In this episode we cover what is available to bloggers within the community, such as mastermind groups made up of peers, challenges and access to a resource directory and more ways to connect so you know you’re not alone.

Our main focus of the EBT community platform: Helping you to go from lonely and overwhelmed to being connected and confident!

Pillar Features of the Community Platform: There’s not an easy place to find community so this was built around this idea.

  • Challenges: See up to 2 a month that run up to 7 days each.
  • Mastermind Groups: You’ll be partnered with a small group of people that will run for about 8 weeks. You can bounce ideas off peers and help answer questions for each other.
    • You need to register for the fall session by the end of August!
  • Exclusive mini-podcast episodes available on this platform only! They are shorter and not available anywhere else with people you might have enjoyed on EBT previously.
  • AMAs with Experts! (Ask Me Anything!) These are a casual and interactive way to speak to experts.
  • Resources Directory: Lists of people and services available to you as a food blogger in ONE place recommended by YOU.
