Awesome Bloggers On B3

This post was most recently updated on March 26th, 2014

Awesome BloggersI belong to a wonderful blogging community called The Biz Blogging Buzz (B3) group.  It is headed by Kim Castleberry and honestly, I really don’t know where I would be without that woman!


While I was recently doing some syndication with these Awesome Bloggers in the industry, I realized that I’ve known them for some years now.  And years on the internet is like a different time zone.  


Because I’ve been blogging buddies for such a long time with these Awesome folks, I wanted to post a shout out to them and thank them all for being part of this wonderful community in which we all love to help one another.


If you don’t know anyone on this list, just click and see why they are such Awesome Bloggers.

      Hi Cherrie.

      That would be a blast wouldn’t it? If we all met one day! Hey, lots of Network Marketers do it, why shouldn’t we?

      Imagine a weekend full of inspiration!

    Hello Donna,

    I just have read your message on FB Fanpage inbox. Anyways, It’s nice to see you mentioning B3 on your blog. There is no doubt all the members are doing well with their blogs and other social activities.

    I hope this will continue as long as we live. 😉


    • Donna.Merrill August 9, 2013 at 12:05 am #

      Hi Amrik!

      It is so good to see you here! We kind of lost track of one another. I think that is the other great part of B3. We watch out for one another too.

      If I notice one of the people in the group has been quiet for a while I like to send them a message just to say “Hey..what’s up? Need any help?”

      The “caring” for one another is the best of all. I do appreciate you coming over.

    I just joined and already feel extremely fortunate to have stumbled my way into this group! I think my blogging career would have been so much easier if I had found B3 earlier! I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone and drinking in all your wisdom! Thank you so much!

      Hi Kathy and Welcome!

      B3 is the place to be! Especially when you are a new blogger and need people to connect with. I’ve been meaning to get to you since I “welcomed” you on our FB group.

      Now we are connected

    I love this article for so many reasons! The funny thing is that I have been around almost everyone on your list for almost three years…but I have been such an on-again/off-again blogger that it’s not even funny. Thankfully, I am finally back to my love of writing and of marketing my business online the way that I need to do it.

    I am so grateful for Kim and B3 as well!! Its such an active, consistent, high-quality community…and it’s nice to have somewhere to lay my writing hat. Great article, pretty lady!

    I got in because of Kim and how the group was so friendly with each other. I also joined because I knew it was a community that was interested in building their business and online presence, with is what I do and have done for more than a decade.

    The group being free… well, that is a bonus. I host the site on my server that Kim became a partner of last year.

    I have my own B3 posts to do, but I have a strategy that I am coordinating with Kim so when the time is ready, I will put it out to my fans, followers, subscribers, and readers. It is a group that is well worth connecting with. I’ve actually designed and consulted for some even though that was not my goal in joining the B3 community.

    I had my own comment exchange community back in 2005-2007 and back then, people weren’t as into social networking or using forums to their advantage… in a non-spammy manner. The emphasis on syndication in B3 and prior as TSA was definitely a big step in the right direction. 🙂

      I knew you were around for a while but 2005? Wow! You certainly have so much knowledge in many aspects of on line marketing and design.

      By the way, I just love the design on your blog!

      Can’t wait for the strategy you and Kim are coordinating to be unveiled.

    I want to commend you for sharing our wonderful blogging group with the world and thank you so much for including me in your list.

    This group of dedicated bloggers has taught me the true meaning of community and relationship marketing. Nobody in this group has pushed their business opportunity, courses, programs, offers or products on me or anyone else. Instead, each one is dedicated to making a difference, educating others about their own area of expertise in their own unique niche. Over time, members of the group know that this person is the diet and nutrition pro, this person is the psychic and healer, this person is the techy one, and this person is the marketing expert. Without pressure and with a real sense of community building, we take the time every week to read, comment and share each others’ blogs. This helps all of us to expand our knowledge and our businesses.

      Thank you so much Erica!

      Your comment has added the benefits of our group B3. The fact that people do not push their business opportunity on one another makes this a plus in my book!

      I love the sense of community with various bloggers we get to know. Although they may not be in our niche, we do need to learn from one another.

      I’m not a tech person, but as a blogger I do need to know about that niche, even if I want something fixed. I have to learn the lingo to reach out and say “hey, can you help me with my C panel!”

      Thanks again!

    It’s awesome to see bloggers supporting each other. I just started blogging about a month ago and before that I was involved with affiliate marketing. There was no support when I was involved with affiliate marketing.

    It seemed like everyone was always out for their own. I love that the blogging community is based on building relationships. I have never taken the time to build a relationship online.

    I hope to meet some awesome people online as I continue my blogging journey.

      Hi Susan,

      Once you build relationships on line you will be fascinated. Just think, people from all over the world communicating with you. Not only for business, but for support and learning curves.

      Most of all the friendships built can lead to mastermind groups, Joint Ventures, and who knows? A great vacation lol.

    Hi Donna,
    I am happy you provided the link to your group. It is great that you are willing to share. You mentioned in one of my blogs several months ago that you were a member of an awesome group. Please explain how the alternating point system works. Of the names you posted I am only familiar with Jupiter Jim. I am so glad I come to your blog or I would have never been able to reach out to this group.

      Hi Arleen,

      You can find out how the alternating system works by pressing the link to B3 above and on that page you will see “how it works” Pretty simple and there is a video by Kim explaining it all.

      It doesn’t take much more time in your syndication part of the day. If you have any questions at all, let me know.

      Hope you like it. There are some fabulous bloggers here.

    Hi Donna,

    Thank you so much for sharing. The idea of syndication was introduced to me a while ago but I have never really given much thoughts to it.

    It seems like this is a great next step for me to take. Could I ask how many involvement is needed? As you can imagine, a lot of business people are time- poor. Also, are there many technological hurdles to go through? Is there monthly fee involved?

    With GREAT appreciation, Donna!

    PS: I will have a busy time visiting those awesome bloggers!

      Hi Viola.

      It is a free group and you can learn all about it by clicking the link. It is a “point system” if you want to earn double or triple points to have more people reach your blog post.

      Otherwise all you need is a few “points” which means you go to some blogs and syndicate them. You will have a group each week so new people will rotate to your blog and you won’t have the same old people there every time.

      It doesn’t take much time at all. If you did one blog a day, you will probably have it all done. Not bad. But the details are on the link. Also there is a Facebook Group to join if you have any questions. Or…you can ask me.

    I have been to Kim’s blog in the past but have never been to the rest. I will have to go and see who some of these bloggers are.

    I was also interested in the B3 group. I went and read Kim’s description the group.

    Thank you for bringing B3 and the people involved to our attention.

      Hi Dee Ann,

      It is a great group that stands the test of time! It was under another name for years, but the group changed. Kim took charge and with help of other members, we made it through all changes necessary.

      The Facebook group is great too. All one has to do is ask a question and everyone that can answer it is willing to help.

      I’ve never seen such dedication online. It is not only great to have people come to your blog and comment, but the community itself is a tightly knit one.

    Thanks to you and the other members I have learned a lot and also had more comments on my posts and more exposure because of it.

    Thank you for sharing this!

      Did you know that at the time of this writing it is B3’s one year anniversary? We all weathered the storm when changes came about last year.

      Clint Butler was especially helpful with the spreadsheets and ironing out problems. But everyone involved did pull their weight.

      And of course, if it wasn’t for Kim, we would be babes lost in the woods.

    You are always generous enough and motivates everyone around you 🙂 I read how grateful they are for your post, as I read through few comments.

    I’ve been to the blogs of Kim, Chery and Raena, but none of others. I’ve just pocketed other links to pay a visit later on. They must be wonderful, especially as the recommendation comes from you 🙂

    You have a lovely and cool week Donna 🙂

      Reciprocity is the key as you know, and helping one another on line. I’ve been blogging buddies with the above for years now.

      This group is a fantastic one because we all follow the “rules and guidelines” set up each week. B3 people are comprised of many seasoned bloggers and others that are quite new.

      The newbies learn so quickly here of how to be ethical bloggers. I just love this group!

    Hi Donna,

    It is nice to share your community so other people know. Noble intention. I know about Kim Castleberry, Raena Lynn and Dr. Erica Goodstone.

    What I would like to know is the type of this community. Is it blogging? Is it internet marketing? Is it a network marketing community?

    I think this is useful to know, at least for me. I am constantly looking for a community and I always want to inform myself first.

    I want to be part of a community with like minded people. For example, I don’t want to join a group that says “internet marketing” just to find out people who write about dogs or relationships. It happened to me and it was not pleasant.

    Have a nice day

      Hi Silviu,

      This is a blogging community. We have been together a long time and went through many changes.

      There ae great bloggers out there that are eager to build relationships, more than just a comment on your blog.

      Although there are a few different niches there, it intertwines with blogging.

      You can check us out by joining and if you have any questions,there is a link in the Facebook Community too.

      For me, this is the best community I am in because each week we are set up on a spreadsheet with different people on a rotation basis. So new people come to your blog each week. And if you want to go the extra mile, you are free to connect with anyone in the group. The more you do, the higher the point system.

      It is all explained in the B3 link and if you have any questions, contact me.

    Honestly, I heard about Kim but none of the rest on the list. But I guess now I have some new bloggers to go check out and get to know them.

    Thanks again Donna for sharing these group of awesome bloggers with us all. Have a great week ahead.

      The best thing is if you go to their blog and comment, they will reciprocate and get to know you.

    I think it’s awesome that you’ve maintained these friendships over the years. I’m looking forward to that myself :).

    I’ve heard you speak of this group before Donna but I think that’s so nice of you to introduce them all to us.

    I only know Kim, Chery, Raena, Leslie, Patricia and Jim. I’m always interested in meeting new bloggers but I don’t have the time right now to join another group when I know I have to accomplish certain tasks. I think you know what my work load looks like at the moment. BUT, I’d love to come back and revisit this at another time. I love connecting with people and getting to know them. I think forming that bond is the best thing we can do as bloggers.

    Thanks again for the introduction and they must be awesome if you’re naming them on your blog. 😉

    Have a great week Donna.

      A while back I did a similar post with our Facebook Group. I know for myself as a blogger, it’s great when I meet new people that someone I know recommends.

      I also know that you are focused on your business right now and with your following, it must be difficult just to keep up with them!

    You are very kind and very true to this lovely community, Donna 🙂 Without so many of the names mentioned especially Kim and yourself, we won’t be celebrating B3 birthday. You also remind me that I need to bring in new members too.

    Hi Donna,

    I know a few of those bloggers, but not all. I love when people give me new names of bloggers that I can check out and get to know.

    I’m sure they are all wealth worth to know better and will try to do that 🙂

    Have a great week!

      Hi Sylviane,

      These few are my friends for years! They are great bloggers and if you went to their blog, they would immediately return the favor.

      And of course, their content is great…like yours!

    I like Kim too, she always makes things so simple, but asks great questions. I have heard of a few on this list, but not the others. Some new bloggers to go check out. Thanks Donna and I will check out the group too!

      Hi Sonia,

      These are old buddies of mine and worth checking out. So is our group! Reliable, accountable and Reciprocity is in our veins.

      I’m sure you would LOVE this group of bloggers. There are so many more in this group that are great. These are but a few that I’ve known a long time.

      It would be a great place for a Super Blogger like you!

    This sounds like a great group. I have seen Kim’s blog. It is great that you have bloggers to rely on.

    As much as we would like to believe it, we can not do this alone. Thanks Donna.

      No Michael,

      We cannot be successful doing it alone. There are many groups out there and I’ve been to lots of them. But the Reciprocity wasn’t there. There was no structure and it only was those spammy Face Book Groups. I didn’t last long there!

      This is a strong group that has been around through thick and thin.

      These Amazing Bloggers are but a few in this group.

      Hi Patricia,

      OMG…just imagine us all together in one room. It would be amazing! When I realized how long we have known one another, it just made me think to shout it out.

      I am so appreciative to you and your wonderful blog. I love being in B3 because you and the bloggers above have been around for years!

      I also like the fact of having our Facebook group just in case we need a helping hand.

    Hi Donna

    Well there you go I did not know of this group but I know about half of the bloggers.

    A nice thing to do in knowledgeable them Donna.

    Now I started out my blog with a course Kim was teaching with Jodie Thompson and we had our little syndication groups back then.

    I hope the packing is going well.

      Hi Sue,

      Well you were one of the first of the “tribbers” way back when. Yes, this group stuck together through thick and thin.

      I remember Kim and Jodie when I first came on to the internet. I figured you knew most of these great Amazing Bloggers in B3 from years ago.

      The group has so many more members and they are all great. Reciprocity is still the key here and we rotate like the old days, so you are never in the same group each week. This causes great back links. But most importantly, solid friendships.

      Still packing lol.

    Hi Donna,

    What a terrific list of awesome bloggers and most important, friends! As I read each name, I realized many of us started in the tribe quite a long time ago before it became B3. I too can say I’ve known most of them for years. I’ve grown, I’ve been inspired, and I’ve learned so much from this community. The talent overflows! Most of the time I feel we were like a family.

    B3 has gone through many transitions and there are key people who have prevailed through it all! I know there are others who might qualify, but I would say this is the core. I’ve always been amazed by the support shown by this group and all B3 members. I love the way we help each other and how all of us are transparent and givers. Value and commitment is what has held this community together.

    We’ve all been through so much, mostly positive, and I am honored to be on the list among some very dedicated, special people. I’m assuming this list includes you and David. Wow time sure flies! Thanks again Donna!

      That says it all Raena!

      We are more than a group of bloggers, but friends. True friends that hold one another up. When things go wrong, there is always a first responder from the group.

      Yes, we have came a long long way with many challenges. But with the support of so many great people…including YOU….we managed to hold this group together.

      The best thing I love about our group is that we are dedicated to one another.

      I am so glad that we have went from blogging buddies to dear friends through the years.

      I just love watching people grow and you came a long way baby!

    Looks like I’m the first to comment on this! It’s an honor to be on this list! And it’s and honor to be following you and your husband, David, as well.

    I’ve loved reading all your posts and watching your videos over the last couple of years I guess it is now!

    Definitely added to my life and to my knowledge as an entrepreneur and blogger!

    Thanks again!

      Hey Jim!

      It was just time to give a shout out to you and others. I know we have known each other for years and I’ve always enjoyed following you.

      It is amazing to me when I think of it how time is so different on the internet. It is like light speed and when we know one another for years, that is a long time.

      Bravo to all that you do and I am honored to be your blogging buddy!
