There used to be a few bloggers’ communities that I joined when I started blogging. I remember the first community that I actively engaged in was MyBlogLog but sad to say, this community was terminated (by Yahoo) in the spring of last year. I met quite a number of bloggers on the said site and most of my first commenters came from there. It was easy to find blogs and blogger friends then. I also joined Blog Catalog and Entrecard and met some bloggers from those communities. I still visit and find interesting blogs there from time to time.
I found new bloggers’ communities lately but I have been skeptical about joining. Some sites seem to be convincing but I don’t particularly like the one that’s offering to query my latest posts for other members to read but my post links are prefixed with their site’s address. It will come out that the post is not from my site but from their own. Ridiculous. There were two sites I discovered having this kind of linking strategy. I’ve become a bit apprenhensive about joining blog communites since I learned about it.
Anyhow, I’m now back to getting active in more communities and recently I joined Fuel My Blog after learning how easy it is to visit other blogs from there. Perhaps you can fuel my blog by voting and giving it a thumbs up, too.
A blog is just out of place if it doesn’t belong to any communities. Through FuelMyBlog, I wish to discover more blogs and bloggers around the world-wide web.
