Being a member of a forum is like getting a giant hug from people who have similar interests to yours. You can find interesting people, access a knowledge base instantly or even share the vast knowledge you have acquired. One very nice thing about forums is that many are free. There are a number of advantages to being a member of a forum.
The Internet loves a constant flow of new information. Since an active blog is full of people asking questions, sharing advice and simply exchanging ideas, the internet quickly indexes forum content. As part of the forum sign up, you are allowed to include your social media links and the link to your blog. Not only will this increase your visibility on the Internet, but you will also gain an audience from your fellow bloggers.
Exchange of Ideas Advantage
Ever get writers block? Did you want to try something different? Scroll through the discussions and you will find a wealth of new information. Part of learning and growing as a blogger is having access to up to date information. On a forum, much of the information is hours old rather than weeks or months old. Subscribe to threads (topics) and new ideas will be sent to your inbox as they are posted.
Reach the World Advantage
Wake up and converse with someone in England and talk to someone in China before you go to bed. The world is available to you through your blogging community. You will find that worldwide bloggers have similar concerns, interests and desires as you. The world becomes a more accessible place and in the pursuit of similar interests, our differences seem to fall away.
Access Resources Advantage
To be a blogger you don’t have to know about CSS, AMPs or Schema markup, but there are plenty of people on a forum who do. If you have a question, ask it. If you are looking for someone to help, there are experts in nearly any discipline. If you have an area of expertise, participating in a forum can gain potential customers.
Knowing You are Not Alone Advantage
Blogging can be a lonely occupation. Many hours spent on the computer, late nights perfecting wording for the new blog post or simply eating bowl of cereal for lunch. There is no reason why among the 30 million bloggers in the US, you can’t find a friend or two.
