The Birth of a Community

One of the reasons I fell in love with blogging when I was younger, was because of the community. I was able to meet other individuals who had similar interests or backgrounds and form a connection. You knew that when someone commented on a post it was because they genuinely cared about you and what you had to say.

Now though, things are a bit different. Yes, there is still a subset of bloggers that comment and connect with one another because they are truly interested in the individual behind the blog but it’s few and far between. Most days, the focus is on what you can do to increase your page rank or your Alexa rating because it’s the only way to get companies to give out “free” shit or pay you to write about them.

That’s all fine and dandy, and more power to people who want to capitalize on that industry but that is just NOT me. Yes, occasionally, I’ll take a paid opportunity or do a review when offered but I’m not focused on my PR rank, Alexa rating, SEO, etc. I could honestly not careless about those factors and it’s hard to find a community that feels the same.

Enter Byte Sized… well, really, enter Small is Powerful.

Small is Powerful is a movement that was started by the Magpie Girl and I have to say, I loved the premise so much that I decided to start a FB group, but failed considerably in maintaining it. Still months later, I returned determined to keep up the connection and with a goal in mind to offer support, resources, and comment love to those of us who wanted to connect on a personal level, and while I adored the name Small is Powerful, it didn’t quite fully embody the basis of our community.

Enter Byte Sized, a community that values what a blogger can contribute creatively, inspirationally, and philosophically. We offer support, resources, and some of us still capitalize on the ability to monetize our blogs BUT that’s not our specific focus, though admittedly, I will start looking into specific opportunities for the members who are interested in this avenue. We welcome all ages and all genders; we do not discriminate, we embrace.

We’re your connection to authors and readers interested in getting to know the person or people behind a blog. Bloggers who are focused on forming legit connections with like-minded bloggers and maybe even lifelong friendships. If this sounds like something you’ve been looking for, why not join us?

  1. I’ve been looking for something like this ever since I “returned” to blogging earlier this year.

    Back when I was active (5-6 years ago), blogging was all about making friends and getting to know the people behind the blogs, not about page ranks or getting free goodies, and that’s what I loved about the blogging world!

    I’m definitely going to join and hopefully I’ll be able to contribute to the community! :)
