Have you ever wanted a blog buddy?
✔ Someone to talk about blogging with
✔ Someone else to bounce content ideas off of
✔ Someone to comment, proofread -- and just read your stuff every time!
✔ Someone in the same niche with similar interests
✔ Someone that's good at the stuff your not good at
✔ Someone that you can help along they way, and share what you know about blogging
✔ Someone to hold you responsible for your blog!
It's basically a "buddy system" for bloggers! Yes, it's free! We encourage bloggers to sign up now, follow the series with your buddy, and see what you both can do to help improve your blogs together!
Please read each tab before submitting the Sign Up Form.

- Read our Code of Conduct & Register as a Member
- Sign up for a Buddy using our Google Form - EXCLUSIVELY found on the bottom of this page!

WE ARE CURRENTLY CREATING THE BUDDY PROGRAM EMAIL COURSE CONTENT FOR BLOG BUDDIES - STAY TUNED OR JOIN OUR FACEBOOK GROUP TO HELP!
- Comment and proofread any *NEW* post that your buddy publishes once a week
You and your buddy may agree on terms such as: "Since we both blog x3 a week, lets proofread each post published for each other and comment on at least one. For proofreading, we'll send each other an email with notes for fixes or errors we catch."
- Share at least one post on social media a week
In your Blog Buddy Profile, you can see which social media accounts your buddy is focused on. Maybe you even have this in common!
- Make contact with your Buddy at least once a week, and agree together if you are going to use the Weekly Series Buddy Prompts each week (read "Buddy Prompts" tab)
- Fill out your member profile so that your buddy can know a little about you, your blog, and where to find your stuff when you are assigned
- Follow each other on all social media!
- Read through some of your buddy's blog history and get a feel for their blog, personality, writing style, and website status
- Make an opening introduction to what you are looking for in a Blog Buddy friend, and how you feel you can be of help to them, and what your focus goals are currently
- Be open to new ideas, suggestions, and upgrades from your buddy
- Try to stick together through the duration of the Program! We will ask everyone if you want a new buddy at the end of each series, allowing you or your buddy an out. Please be kind when it comes to leaving the program, and be understanding of each other's time. You can request a new blog buddy at any time by submitting to the new sign up form
Please subscribe to our newsletter list to receive weekly prompts via email - if you already subscribed just go there and enter in your information, and what list you'd like to subscribe to. Your information will then be updated.
Each week we will post a new Members Only post to the blog! On that Weekly #BuddyPrompt Post, we will include any prompt, checklist, resources or surveys for you and your buddy to use that week. These are related to our 12 Week Blog Improvement Series we run.
That post will have a forum you can join too!
We hope this helps you both to get to know each other better, as well as help you to improve each other's blog interactively

The beginnings of this search feature:
We have built a custom Search for you to be able to Find Your Own Buddy! Or you can simply select "I'm looking for a blog buddy" and an admin will assign a blogger who is also "looking for a blog buddy". Or another blogger will reach out themselves. It is recommended that you have your Profile Completely filled out before attempting to find a blog Buddy. Note that we have very few registered members currently. Until we have enough members, you may not see any Buddy Results when you do a search, yet.
