The Normal Happenings Starry-Eyed Discord!

Welcome back amazing readers! Today we’re so happy to announce the launch of our very own Normal Happenings Starry Eyed Discord!

If you’re not too familiar with Discord, it’s this top-notch communication platform ideal for the organization of large groups! So far, we’ve been using Twitter messages for internal communication, updated, collaboration planning, and socializing. It’s impossible to do that all of one thread, so everything is about to change!

Discord is arranged by channels, and with these 16 avenues for communication we’ll be able to rule the world! Or, at least, become an alliance of bloggers and content creators working together to constant improve our work. Let’s go over all the channels!

We think STARSTORM is the most important channel, so it sits at the very top. The premise is super simple. WordPress lives and dies based on how many stars a piece gets. The more stars, the more likely it is to show up in the reader. So let us bombard you with stars!

Share all of your new posts here first so we can visit your blog and like it. That will boost it in the WordPress algorithm and help increase your audience. You’ll only be able to once per hour in this channel, so if you’d like to discuss your post, head over to #blogging-discussion!

Let’s talk about what we do best — blogging! Feel free to share your work if you’re looking for feedback or discussion on a topic! There’s no such thing as “self-promotion” on this discord — instead it’s just a group of incredibly creative and kind people discussing ways to improve the art form of blogging as a whole. If that intersects with your blogging, we think that’s awesome!

Here’s an incredibly helpful feature! Let us help you out if you’re struggling with a post! A combined Google doc is soon to be available, so feel free to copy over your work in progress to the doc. We’ll then make comments, suggest error fixes, and overall tell you how great the potential of your upcoming post is!

  1. This is a great way to unite all of us. For those of you that are hesitant about Discord. Give it a chance before ruling it out. It’s really excellent and I think it’ll draw us all closer together.
