Top 5 Blogging Communities Every Blogger Should Join

Author: Gagan Masoun
Top 5 Blogging Communities
Blogging community portals are good way to drive more traffic for your blog. I know about hundreds of community websites. Because, it is a easy process to create a community site or social bookmarking site with the help of Pligg or other tools. Everyone can download the latest and greatest version of Pligg for free. You should join only popular community sites that gives you some attention and traffic to your blog. Here, I am going to share top blogging community sites. Every blogger should join these sites if they want more visitors.

Difference B/W Community Site & Social Bookmarking Site?

Bloggers can share their blog posts and meet fellow bloggers with the help of blogging communities. Its is a simple process: write a new post >> share on blogging community site >> get free traffic and backlinks. If you are new to blogging field then by joining these sites you can get success in short time. Social media sites like Facebook, Google+, Linkedin and Twitter are different from blogging communities. Bloggers and non-bloggers both are using social sites.

5 Top Blogging Communities:

1) BlogEngage

BlogEngage is a premium blogging community, its my favorite blogging community. I won free BlogEngage account through giveaway. Bloggers can submit blog posts, meet other bloggers, discuss about the post. All articles submitted are published on upcoming page immediately where users read and vote on the submissions. When submitted post receive enough votes they become published on the BE's home page. Blog Engage has 2927+ members, 140176+ total stories and it is founded by +Brian Belfitt. BlogEngage is a paid blogging community. You can start with standard account (£19.99). But if you don't want paid account then you can get your Blog Engage Free Account.

2) BloKube

BloKube is another blogging community founded by Devesh Sharma. Blokube is a good platform to promote your new blog posts and meet with new bloggers. It has voting feature that allow users to vote up or down for posts. If your post get the required no. of votes, your post will published on the home page of BloKube.

3) BizSugar

BizSugar was founded in 2007 by DBH Communications, Inc. I like the voting system of BizSugar. Users can vote your submitted posts. You can see highest-quality posts on the home page. If your post get highest votes then your story will add to BizSugar's top stories widget, weekly Top 10 newsletter, and Twitter feed where you get even more exposure. So, create an account today on BizSugar.

  3. Hi Gagan,

    Thanks for sharing this list of blogging communities. I have been using Blog Engage for last two years and it's a great blogging communities. There is two new communities which has great potential named Klinkk and dosplash. I don't know if list.ly could be considered as a blogging community as it's not strictly for bloggers and any body can use it, but I do agree with you that it can drive massive traffic.
