There are so many great bloggers out there that have such great skills. Problem is we do not know about most of them. So how can I bridge the gap between you and something that another blogger offers.
I want to build up a community of helpers. A place where we can trust each other. A place where we can rely on one another. As bloggers we have a special bond. Why not utilise that and support each other?
So in that vein I am creating a classifieds for bloggers. It is a place that bloggers can advertise their skills, services, wares, or whatever you as a blogger might do. It will also be a place where you can request services or needed products.
Do you create logos and banners? Do you know how to install a Wordpress blog? Do you know your way around Wordpress themes? Advertise your skills on our Classifieds.
Are you in need of a customer theme, do you want a logo for your blog? You can hook up with other people offering those services.
Do you have an e-Book that you are selling or giving away? Perhaps you need a few guest posts, or maybe you want to offer your services as a guest blogger? Put it out there so that others can see.
I’m not guaranteeing that you will find everything you need or that all of a sudden your blogging business will rocket. But if we work together as a community I’m sure we can make this work.
There are so many classifieds out there, but I don’t see one that is purely for bloggers and that builds the blogging community.
At this moment in time you can only offer your services if you are a blogger. If you need services or products then anyone can make that request. Right now I don’t want every Tom, Dick and Marketer to hoc their stuff. These classifieds are not to advertise your timeshare, or your estate business, or whether you’re selling Kim Kardashian Toiletries. It’s a service offered to bloggers mainly.
The classifieds will be closely monitored and any break in this rule will be deleted. This service is to help you as a blogger, and aid you to help other bloggers.
I might change it in the future, I don’t know. If it takes off I might offer it too, or have a separate classifieds for other verticals.
Not knowing how this will help you or if you can make use of such a service, I covet your response. DO you think this will benefit you? Will you make use of such a service? Please let me know?
I have at the moment only four categories:
Do you have any ideas for more? Perhaps some sub categories. Please let me know in the comments below.
