There seems to be a Facebook group for any interest you may have. I’ve become friends with someone who lives in our subdivision in Tucson because we belong to the same gardening group. Here’s how Expat Bloggers Europe came to join the ranks of FB groups.
I applied to join a group for expat bloggers and got tired of waiting to be added to the group, so together with some friends, we started our own! (The original group did finally add me, many months later.) Our group started small, but has been growing big enough that people are noticing us. I guess you can feel like you’ve arrived when you’re turning down people who have no connection to your topic but want to join your group.
I’m mentioning this in case you’re reading this and happen to be an expat living in and blogging about Europe. You can find our group on Facebook “Expat Bloggers – Europe” and ask to join. It’s a place where you can ask questions and share expertise. We promote and encourage each other, and provide perspective in challenging situations. For example, what would you do when someone comments on all of your blog posts and wants to argue with you about everything you’ve said, including how you take your coffee? How crazy is that?
I’m going to share with you a little bit about the other bloggers in our group, but first I’ll take a moment for shameless self-promotion. Polish Housewife has a Facebook page; let me invite you to stop by and “like” our page. You’ll find tidbits about about Poland and life here that might not make it to a blog post and interesting discussions happening in the comments. I hope you’ll join in.
My blogging friends are an interesting group with a variety of interests beside the multicultural aspect of our lives. Let me introduce you to some of our group and I’ll share more bloggers in the days to come:
