We thrive on chasing passions. Believing in the power to do what you love is a principle we live by. So we created this amazing blogging community and we want you to enjoy it to the fullest.
2.COMMUNITY OVER COMPETITION IS OUR CATALYST
We strive to encourage community, collaboration, and connection-building as a key growth method for developing a blogging business. Community harnesses the power of human interaction to make your blogging dreams come to life.
3. BLOGGER SUPPORTING BLOGGER IS HOW WE FLOURISH.
Along with the belief that everything is possible – we also believe that everyone matters. That is why we have orchestrated a community in which singular, deeper connections can be flourished with the hope of blogger growth. We use this group platform to spread awareness, inspire encouragement, and blossom engagement for all blogging members.
We founded this to help grow authentic support in the blogging community by presenting engagement tools, creating strong 1:1 connections, and harnessing the power of collaboration
To keep this community fair, positive, and productive, we have a few basic rules to follow. At the discretion of our admin, rule breakers can and will be removed from the group without warning. We definitely don’t want that to happen (because this is BOSS community, and we want you in it)
To make sure we are on the same page, here are the terms of this group:
1. NO PROMOS ALLOWED EXCEPT FOR IN DESIGNATED THREADS.
This group is for support, community, education, growth, and collaboration. It is not for self-promotion. Do not spam the group searching for customers/sharing your success stories. Do not poach members trying to sell your services and/or products. This behavior takes away from the flow and quality of the group as it was created to function. These actions will not be tolerated.
This also includes self-promotion in the comments, unless it is requested by the original poster. For example, if the original poster specifically asks for someone to help them create photo presets, you are welcome to offer your services. If they ask for a coach, consultant or virtual assistant feel free to offer your services! However, please do not promote your business/services unless specifically requested.
If someone requests your email, blog website etc. outside of these promo threads, message them privately.
- Examples of self-promotion include but are not limited to: your new email freebie, your email address, an image with your blog website on it, asking for comments/likes/shares on your own blog post(s), your products/services, your new hashtag, direct affiliate links, your Facebook group, your Facebook PAGE etc.
- Note: we have a WEEKEND WILDCARD thread where self-promotion is allowed, so please save your service offers and promotions for this particular thread.
- Admin reserve the right to remove any comments that are not following group terms.
- If you are not sure why your post was removed or you have any questions, please email:firstname.lastname@example.org
2. NEGATIVITY, “SNARKINESS”, DISCRIMINATION, BULLYING, SPAM, HATRED & SHAMING IS BAND.

- On that note, rude comments, intolerance, shadiness etc. is all banned.
- We reserve the right to delete comments (and members) without warning.
- Please be KIND and RESPECTFUL of your colleagues.
3. NO LINKS ON THE MAIN WALL.
- Members are not allowed to share links on the main wall. There are plenty of opportunities to share what you are working on through designated, daily promos.
- You are ALWAYS WELCOME & ENCOURAGED to share helpful tips, personal wins, inspirational quotes, ask for help/guidance, offer help to others, give advice to fellow creators, tell funny/ironic stories, share positive/encouraging experiences, collaborate and network with fellow bloggers, ask for feedback, advice etc.

- These rules only apply to direct affiliate links. Helpful, outside affiliate links are perfectly fine.
5. GIVE MORE VALUE THAN YOU GET.

- In our differences, we will GROW.
- ANY disrespect will not be tolerated.
8. NO SHARING “HOW TO START A BLOG” POSTS.
- Group members are not allowed to share posts that teach others “how to start a blog.” One of our co-founders — Morgan Tyner — is focused on guiding, helping, and growing new bloggers to develop + monetize their blogs. We have plenty of tools and resources to cover this particular topic.
