Starting a Group Blog

group of people

If you have a group of friends and you would like to keep in touch with each other and have other people know what you have been up to and what you have been learning? You could actually try making a group blog. Whether you are all in the same neighborhood or far away from each other, you could all share these things in one place — your group blog.

How do you set one up? Here are some things you have to do:

  • Think of a theme or topic that you and your friends would like to talk about.
    If you are all backpackers, you could create a travel blog. If you are all addicted to coffee and you love going to the different coffee shops, you could come up with a coffee blog.
  • Sign up for a blog account. If you are on, you need one to create a blog. If you are the one creating it, you could set it up such that you are the admin of the group.
  • Let other friends of yours sign up.
    Your friends don’t have to create their own blogs on services like They could just simply get an account so they could log in and you could add them to the group blog.
  • Customize your blog’s look.
    It would be good to have a nice-looking blog which has a layout appropriate to its theme so that readers would be more interested in coming back to visit your blog.
  • Regularly update.
    Sometimes real life takes over but still, updating your blog is something that you would have to do. You signed up for it so it’s good if you utilize the space and the features of your blogging service.
