This is Step #12 in the 101 Steps to Becoming a Better Blogger.

Get involved in the blogosphere. Being a blogger is about being part of a community. Leave comments on other blogs and get to know your favorite bloggers.

This step is a lot easier said than done. There are literally hundreds of bloggers looking for attention from their favorite bloggers or the bloggers with the most link juice – not tart cherry juice! I like relatively unknown bloggers and have developed a great friendship with the blogger of Linky Love and a couple of other bloggers are really great resources for information and blogging tips.

Because of my busy schedule, I find it hard to comment as much as I’d like, but I will try to improve. I want to let other bloggers know how valuable their work is to me.

  1. Yes, thepinkC must have a busy scedual leaving 100 comments a day at Linky Love :-)

    But they are all moooost appreciated!

    thepinkC is right: read blogs that are established and you learn a lot from. Then look out for the newbies like me who are desperate 😆 AND

    have something you like to offer.

    Most of these newbies will be gone as soon as they come, but those that survive could really be the next big thing.

    And aren’t you going to BENEFIT BIG TIME from people you helped out when they were a nobody!

    (Got some extra visitors after you were featured guestblogger yesterday Ellie?)

    • i love Linky Love! :)

      I have definitely benefited from knowing bloggers who are up and coming – they often have a fresh perspective on things, which gives me a chance to look at things in a different way.

      Yes, I saw a great spike in traffic. I hope they remain dedicated readers!

  2. They should since you are a bigger earner than me 😉

    Did you see who is on top of on the same day she subscribed? Now we are going to focus on her and learn :-)

    • I noticed! I am taking notes. :-)

  3. Me too. I was going to take my own French Swear Words as an example of how to boost visitors, but Joey Moggie really sets an example.

    First things first: I need to award you, you need to award me and then we need to award everybody :-)

    I am also clear now I need a weekly feature like you already are doing so well :-)
