About a week ago, I read about an organization called SITS (The Secret is in the Sauce) from my friend and amazing blogger Janine Huldie. If you don’t know her site already, it’s a great one you will want to subscribe to!
What is SITS?
Now, back to SITS. Janine had written that she was excited about being a Community Lead for the organization. I wanted to learn more about it as soon as I heard it was a women’s network. I went on the SITS website, as well as talking further with Janine about it. I found out the organization provides great opportunities to expand your blogging network!
Here’s what I found out about the SITS Girls community:
- It has over 75,000 members(!!)
- It’s a place for women bloggers to grow their online networks
- A Blogger of the Day gets a special spotlight every day
- It offers unique social media tips
- There are women bloggers of any experience level
- There is a Facebook group and online forum, both found through the main site, to talk with other writers
- Get access to paid sponsored blogging opportunities
As Janine explains in a recent post at J9 Designs (yes, she has two sites!), “I have to admit SITS is probably one of my favorite blogging groups that I do indeed belong to, but I do belong to a few others, which have given me other opportunities, as a blogger and writer.”
The Potential for Blogging Success with SITS
With an organization such as this one, dedicated to women bloggers, there are so many possibilities! It will inspire women to create their own blogs when they see the profiles on the site of women such as Janine. Not only does Janine have two young kids but she also operates two blogs and has a web design business. She blogs Monday through Friday and has so much energy that I am in awe of her! Talk about an inspiration for other women.
With more female writers in the blogosphere, there is also potential to raise awareness about issues specific to women, such as gender inequality. In addition, it empowers females and can be so much fun! The SITS forum and Facebook group also helps women to network effectively, be seen as professionals and create friendships that increase their self-esteem.
What do you think are some other benefits for increasing the number of women bloggers?
