Piano Bloggers: New Community

I am pleased to announce a new Facebook community group for those who read and write blogs about the piano: Piano Bloggers!

The aim of the group is to provide a dedicated space for pianists and writers to share and encourage one another, as well as a focal point where bloggers can share all our latest posts.

This is important, because many online communities don’t like bloggers to link their sites. For example, on Reddit not all subreddit areas welcome blog posts at all, while forums such as Piano World can also react with hostility towards bloggers who share their posts. And even on Facebook, some groups prefer to limit or restrict the sharing of blog links.

And that’s why those who READ blogs will enjoy the Piano Bloggers group as much as those who write them! I believe that the group can offer a unique space online where interaction between readers, writers and pianists can flourish.

Personally, having received so much encouragement, and from so many, I hope Piano Bloggers can be a similar support to other writers and those interested in taking up blogging, while providing ongoing stimulus to those of us already active creating piano related content online.

Group Description

Here’s the official group blurb:

Piano Bloggers is an online community for all who enjoy reading and writing about piano playing, teaching, the pianist’s life, and the world of music.

As you will see, it’s my aim – along with moderators Frances Wilson (who blogs as The Cross-Eyed Pianist) and Mark Polishook – to ensure that this group provides a safe and welcoming community.

I really hope you will consider joining the Piano Bloggers community online here.
