Take a walk with us. A walk down Memory Lane. Back to the early days of blogging. Back to when you FIRST started blogging and didn’t know your SEO from your USP. Back to when you didn’t know what Twitter was much less who to follow or re-tweet. Back to when you were blogging to your parents and one or two friends. Remember?
For many of us, those early weeks and months were possibly frustrating and confusing. It would have been really lovely if someone could have taken us by the virtual hand and let us in on a few trade secrets, helped us to see where we could improve, suggested a slightly different blog layout or design and maybe introduced us to a few of their friends along the way.
At BritMums, we are trying to bridge the gap for “newbie” bloggers by making that partnership happen. (Trumpet fanfare please) INTRODUCING: the BritMums Big Sis Mentoring Programme! BritMums will be pairing up “experienced” volunteer bloggers with newbie bloggers. The “Big Sis’” will be matched up with 3-5 newbie bloggers and will spend a bit of time with each of them. The Big Sis bloggers will look at the newbie blogger’s content, blog design, answer questions and provide assistance where the newbies need it. A small commitment of time to make a big difference in the blogging of newbies. Brilliant!
If you are interested in volunteering as a Big Sis or being mentored in the BritMums Big Sis Mentoring Programme, please fill out the form at the bottom of this post. We will be contacting everyone next week to make matches and further arrangements. We will also be highlighting our Big Sis volunteers in the coming weeks as they share their Top Tips for Newbie Bloggers which will be of great value to everyone in the blogging community.
Here’s to the FIRST run of the BritMums Big Sis Mentoring Programme. We know our experienced BritMums will have loads to offer and our newbie bloggers are just itching to learn. If you have additional questions, please leave a comment below.
