As some of you know, I am a member of the Gack Ink blog network. Gack Ink is a bring your own blog network, which means that the blogger retains control and ownership of their blog. It also means that they do not get paid for blogging.
A blog network is an affiliation of bloggers. Some blog networks pay their bloggers. Others do not.
Whether or not you are paid to write posts, being part of a blog network has several benefits:
You can learn tips and secrets from other successful bloggers. Many blog networks have a forum where members can post questions and discuss ideas.
Being part of a network enables you to form relationships within the network that you might take longer to build if you were not in the network.
Other bloggers in the network can support your blog projects and provide advice, if needed.
Being part of a network can drive additional traffic to your blog. Not only will potential readers find your blog listed on the network’s home page, but network members will also drop by your blog frequently.
5. Exposure to quality blogs.
Typically blog networks cover many topics. Being part of a blog network can give you exposure to quality blogs on subjects outside of your own niche.
