Russell Deasly’s “Tips for Bloggers…”
This is probably what my dog, Brownie, would do! 😉
I was reading Russell Deasly’s “Tips for Bloggers, The World’s 100 Best Tips for Bloggers” this morning, and this one stood out to me. http://theverybesttop10.com/top100-tips-for-bloggers/
Tip (7) = My tip is to do what I am doing today. Spend some time looking at other blogs, liking and READING other people’s posts, commenting when it moves you. Then have a look at the blog directory widgets or links that people have. Are you listed? If not, then spend a bit of time adding your site and the reciprocal link. One of my earlier posts resulted in someone reposting me to their site (BlogDogIt.com), and since then we have become reciprocal fans. I send him traffic, he sends me traffic. We appreciate each other’s efforts. To me, that is the key. Networking with real people. Sincerely. That is how you get long-term readership, and friends.
I never thought that I could make the nice friends that I have from blogging. But to really hear feedback about my thoughts and my artwork has been truly inspiring to me. It is not a matter of how many followers I have or how many people read my posts, but just the fact that anyone is doing this is great! I find all the people’s blogs whom I follow unique, lovely, and just fun. Thanks for all of your support everyone!
