New series: emerging blogger

The emerging blogger series logo

The emerging blogger series is something I want to try out as a way to give mental health bloggers who are in the early stages of their blogging evolution the chance to have their writing seen by a wider audience.

Every week I’ll publish one or two emerging blogger mental health-themed guest post(s) by a blogger who’s early on in their mental health blogging evolution, with priority given to those whose blog has less than 50 WordPress followers.  Yes, 50 is a very arbitrary number, but I picked it because I remember when I first started blogging those first 50 followers felt like the hardest to find and connect with.   The focus is on community-building rather than just a one-off guest post.

If you’re interested in being featured in the emerging blogger series, email me at mentalhealthathome (at) gmail (dot) com with a brief description of what you’d like to write about and your blog name/URL.  I’m looking for bloggers who have already had some form of connection with me or my blog, who have blogs that are focused on mental health, and who will contribute posts that are relevant to a broad mental health blogger audience.  Although I may make occasional exceptions for bloggers that I have an established relationship with, generally blogs that serve a primarily commercial purpose will not be considered.

You can find a list of all of the posts in the emerging blogger series here.

    Very nice idea. I’d be happy to mutually follow any fellow writers in your group. It gets discouraging for me with my modest number (around 650 on WP) to keep finding writers with thousands.

    What a great idea!! I’d volunteer, but I’ve got more than 50 followers and have been writing about my own journey for years. I’ll look forward to reading what you promote! 🙂

    This is such a fab idea both for us readers to discover new bloggers & content, and to give newbie bloggers a little helping hand in connecting with an audience. Great idea, Ashley! 🙂
