We all appreciate receiving blog love. Like who doesn’t appreciate their readers reaching out and leaving comments. Or seeing our tweets being re-tweeted. Or receiving fun surprises. We all love blog love. It makes us think that what we are doing means something.
So I’ve decided to share with you some tips on how you can really show a blogger some love.
Subscribe to your favorite blogs either through RSS or Email or Bloglovin. Pick one that you know you’ll pay attention to and read! **See how I conveniently included my own links in there…lol**
Follow your favorite blogs across all their social media accounts! Interact with them on their social media channels. Really show your favorites that you appreciate the time they are putting into their blog/content.
Comment Comment Comment!! But make sure your comments are AUTHENTIC! Leaving something like “stopping by from the linkup, taylor http://pinkheelspinktruck.com” is not authentic. Actually read their post. Find something that you relate to and mention it in your comment. Be real. Be authentic. If you don’t have anything authentic to say about their post, just don’t say anything at all. But then go find them on twitter and tweet to them that you loved their post (but only if you really did!). If you aren’t comfortable writing a comment (maybe the post hit a little too close to home), then email the blogger. Then you can get personal without having others reading.
If you loved someone’s post…spread the love to all of your followers. Share!! Share!! Share!! Use those little share buttons that sit at the bottom of their posts. Pin a graphic to Pinterest. Or copy their link and send it out into the interwebs to all your people. Heck, you could even email the link to your friends! Or even better…have a conversation with your BFF and spread the love that way!
So there you have it. If you do these 4 tips over and over, you will build your own community at the same time you are showing some blog love. I promise!!
